George R. R. Martin's Official Website - News and rumors about HBO's Game of Thrones Game of Thrones: the women of Westeros | Television & radio From left to right: Daenerys Stormborn, Ygritte, Cersei Lannister, Sansa Stark, Lady Olenna, Catelyn Stark, Brienne of Tarth and Arya Stark. Photograph: HBO The Red Wedding grabbed all the headlines, but for me the most haunting moment in the last season of Game of Thrones came a few episodes earlier, as one of Westeros's most machiavellian political operators – Petyr Baelish, royal Master of Coin, brothel-keeper and self-made-man extraordinaire – describes the brutal game at which he so excels. "Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. It might appear, looking at Westeros and the medieval past from which so much of its inspiration is drawn, that the ladder is built for men.
