Game of Thrones: character comparison by height by alex16 Game of Thrones: character comparison by height by alex16
as requested on the Game of Thrones Reddit page, a reference to the height of all the different characters in HBO series: A Game of Thrones.

For practical reasons, this is based on the height of the actors instead of the height of the characters in the books.

I imagine it would be harder to make them accurate from the books, so it seems like a wise option to do the TV ones. Did you use Conan Stevens for The Mountain or the latest dude in season 4?

yeah I didn't have the time to do one based on the books, I would love to do a reread and make one based on the actual characters, but it would take a lot of time. I might do one about the mountain and the hound "soon". I used Conan Stevens for The Mountain in this one since it was made during season 2 ;)

I dont think they describe the height in full detail of every character. We do have an idea of how tall Robert Baratheon, Khal Drogo, Gregor Clegane and Ned Stark are (I think), but not every one of them gets described in that much depth... But I havent read them for a while, so I can't remeber for sure. In the book Robert was at least one head taller than Ned Stark and was very massive (even if you dont count his fatness). And he wielded a two-handed warhammer (I dont think it was Valyrian steel though, just like a "special" order he made for the smith), that Ned Stark could barely lift it apparently. Imagine how strong he must have been! XD I suppose The Mountain could be comparible in that and might be able to wield a weapon like that, but it seems he preffered slashing his enemies (or anyone for that matter!) rather than crushing lol

I think Khal Drogo may have been about as tall as Ser Gregor, but a tiny bit shorter and more toned, rather than wide and massive like Clegane, but its very tricky actually, I'm really struggling to remeber that! We need to ask G RR Martin to do like a small talk session with like pictures and chart etc to explain how tall some of his notable characters are XD

lol that would be great haha :P
If I remember correctly Robbert and his brothers are somewhere in the 6'5 region so pretty tall guys. Drogo is huge like the hound and both would be considered giants if it wasn't for big bro Gregor.

I would love some more info on it, but I imagine GRMM might have more pressing matters :P Maybe in the World of Westeros book?

I could only hope, since I don't actually have that particular book as of yet. Might grab one later!

Robert would be the biggest and toughest though. Renly and Stannis might generally be somewhat similar, with Stannis being a bit more fit for combat I would imagine. In fact, look at Jason Stathan and that's bascially Stannis Baratheon LOL

You missed Tywin. Tywin's some centimeter larger than Jaime.

Wow, there are actually characters I like who are around my height (5'4"). Clearly it's cosplay time.
