-Not a fan of the series, but my tumblr dash is, so I get the reactions.

But an interview with George R.R. Martin states that he based 'The Red Wedding' in Game of Thrones off the 1692 Scottish Massacre of Glencoe and The Black Dinner of 1440 in Edinburgh.

-In the interview, George R.R. Martin says that a 'Black Boar Head' was brought forth during the Black Dinner as a 'Symbol of Death', but I'm finding accounts that it was a 'Black Bull Head', not Boar. (although this would have made the next Tusker cover interesting to draw)

So something historical to muse while people are wailing over the deaths of fictional characters. ^__^
