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.

Sweet. I can see what theory you hold to as to what Jon's parentage is... :P
Have to agree with you though :)
Brilliant image!

I thought the mountain was 8 feet tall.

You are absolutely correct, the mountain is described as being over 8 feet tall several times in the books, but like I mentioned in the description, this chart is made based on the actors in the series out of practical reasons (I love the books but I don't really feel like doing a re-read just to find clues how tall everyone is, especially because many main characters never have their height detailed ;))

Well that is true, this pic shows how hard it would be to make the characters exactly like in the books, 'cause King Robert is almost as huge as the mountain.

if I remember from correctly Robert was around 6'10 with the mountain speculated to be 8'2, Renly and Stannis would be just a bit shorter than Robert, but the height of many of the more average height characters is never commented upon, making it hard to do a complete line-up.

Yeah! I hope he is, and I hope he is the prince that was promised, but with what Quaithe told Daenerys I find it hard that there will be THREE dragon heads (since you know, Quaithe told her that she should beware of the Mummer's Dragon, and everything she has said has come to be true [link]

It's great you made Ghost , because in the show , we tend to forget that Dire Wolves are huge :)

You forgot Lord Tywin :O
He's slightly taller than Jaime :P

I know! Tywin isp robably my favorite character out of season 2 and I even made a figure for him, but I arranged the characters by height and because of his color he kinda ruined the image a bit haha. For the same reason I had to skip on Rickon, Maergery, Littlefinger and several more great characters ;)

I'm glad to hear that i'm not the only one who likes Tywin , most of the fan generally like Dany and Jon and hate all the Lannisters except Tyrion .
I guess that if two characters are the same colour , it would indeed ruin a bit the picutres , for it would make on big spot ...
You made a figure ????
You gotta show me !
BTW , i saw you're Dutch , i guess you're going to the Amsterdam Exhibit :P

Thank you so much! I've been trying to set the character heights in my mind but it gets hard (specially when I am at 5'4 trying to comprehend some one at the Clegane Bro heights) HBO series helped a bit, but since Sandor Clegane (Rory McCann) is 6'6, and the only female to stand next to him most the time is Sansa (sophie Turner at 5'9) it still became hard to imagine the Book heights difference instead.
Love Hodors, and Gregor looks like he wet himself! :)

You put Tyrion at the wrong end of the chart. Since he's the biggest character in the series, he needs to be on the right hand side.

YES GOOD THANK YOU
I've always wondered a bit about the direwolves and just how big they are. Gregor Clegane as well.
And...for some reason I always imagine Myrcella as shorter. Dunno why.

also you spelled Daenerys wrong but it's okay
