‘Game of Thrones’ fans calculate how much it would cost to move Daenerys’ army

Warning: Contains spoilers for the first 6 seasons of Game of Thrones.

So: Daenerys Targaryen is finally, finally on her way to Westeros. In just over a week the new season of Game of Thrones will start, and she’ll presumably touch down on Dragonstone before planning her inevitably fiery invasion of King’s Landing.

It’s taken us a long time to get to this point. For the first 60 hours of the show, everyone’s favourite Targaryen was busy getting sucked into various side-quests over on Essos, and it was easy to get frustrated at just how damn long it was taking her to get her act together.

But there’s a reason for that.

A recent infographic breaking down exactly how much it’d theoretically cost for Daenerys to transport her army (horses, food, the whole shebang) from Essos to Westeros has gone viral on Reddit.

Okay, so that might not be 100% accurate, but it does seem pretty thorough (1st move international, despite the fact it’s a PR campaign, clearly did their research) and all in all it’s a reminder of just how damn far Daenerys has come since Season 1. Planning an invasion on this scale obviously requires serious time and resources.

The infographic has racked up almost 6,000 upvotes and approaching 500 comments on the r/gameofthrones subreddit.

Still: there was one gaping whole in their logic that a fan was quick to point out.

Gonna need to take another look at that Royal Council calculation.
