Cool Game of Thrones Infographic Shows All The Betrayals In The Show

A team at Venngage watched every episode of Game of Thrones updated to include Season 6 — counting 77 distinct acts of betrayal and breaking them down by character.

They organized all their findings in a cool infographic below. The biggest circles are the perpetrators and the arrows leading away point to whom they betrayed and how — thicker arrows equal bigger betrayals. Dotted lines represent implied betrayals that were explicitly spoken of or shown on screen.

The biggest culprits are both expected — Cersei Lannister, Varys, Petyr Baelish, and Stannis Baratheon — and surprising; Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, Robb Stark.

Only Baelish, Ellaria Sand, and Ramsay Bolton have never been directly betrayed (probably because people are too scared). Over half the betrayals took place between alleged allies, 30% between families (the Lannisters skewed that one heavily), and a small but significant portion between lovers (Et tu, Shei?).

Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres July 16.
