Race for the Iron Throne Guest Essay on Tower of the Hand

Race for the Iron Throne just posted the first part in a three-part essay series for Tower of the Hand, taking a look at the history and politics of the office of the Hand of the King, past, present, and future. In part 1, I overview the nature of the office itself and analyze the Hands of the early Targaryen kings.

Take a look!

    I have nothing intelligent to say, other than that I enjoyed the essay very much. Ah “Hand of the King”, the Westeros version of “Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor”. Sitting that close to power is like sitting by a fireplace during a cold winter night. You long to itch closer for the warmth but get too close and you will be burned.
