Game of Thrones is going a step ahead of the books and TV series. The Harvard University is planning to offer a course in the series. Titled The Real Game of Thrones: From Modern Myths to Medieval Models, the course will analyse on how George RR Martin's series "echoes and adapts, as well as distorts the history and culture of the 'medieval world' of Eurasia from c. 400 to 1500 CE".

A report on TIME Magazine quoted the description of the course revealed by one of its professors, Sean Gilsdorf, a medieval historian and Administrative Director and Lecturer on Medieval Studies. It stated, "A set of archetypal characters at the heart of Game of Thrones – the king, the good wife, the second son, the adventurer, and so on – with distinct analogues in medieval history, literature, religion, and the legend".

He added, "Game of Thrones does dramatise nicely some fundamental things going on in medieval courts. Tensions between a queen and the younger women who marry their sons are some 'Real Housewives of 10th-century Germany' kind of stuff, where you see these women going after each other."

Sean Gilsdorf, the medieval historian who is co-teaching the course with assistant professor of German and the Study of Religion Racha Kirakosian, said: "Game of Thrones does dramatise nicely some fundamental things going on in medieval courts. Tensions between a queen and the younger women who marry their sons are some 'Real Housewives of 10th-century Germany' kind of stuff, where you see these women going after each other." The course is also a way to boost the admission of humanities subjects, which declined 8.7 percent between 2012 and 2014.

Meanwhile, there is a bad news for GoT fans. It has been confirmed that the final season will take time and will be aired only in 2019. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, HBO's president of programming Casey Bloys confirmed that the eight and final season need a lengthy writing process and the fantasy drama will appear on televisions only after two years.
