Who Takes the Iron Throne on Wattpad?

In the last 30 days, people spent over 140 million minutes reading fantasy stories on Wattpad. That’s the equivalent of watching the entire Game of Thrones HBO series over 47,000 times! With so much GOT engagement on Wattpad, we thought we’d ask our little birds what houses and which characters rank highest on Wattpad. Please be advised, there are spoilers ahead.

The Noble Houses of the Seven Kingdoms Ranked

In a stark contrast to how things play out in the HBO Series, House Stark takes the number one spot in terms of uploads on Wattpad. With 30,000 story uploads shared, the Starks are ten times more popular than the Lannisters, who take second place.

In a tight race for third place, House Targaryen takes House Baratheon by just 17 story uploads. In descending order, they’re followed by: House Tyrell, House Martell, and House Bolton.

Surprisingly, the house that gave us the bastard, Ramsay Bolton, outranks House Tully, Arryn, and Greyjoy.

The Champions of The Realm Ranked:

Jon Snow may be Ned Stark’s bastard, but he’s number one in our hearts. Jon Snow has double the number of story uploads when compared with the combined uploads for Sansa and Arya Stark. He also has twenty times more uploads on Wattpad than the self-proclaimed King of the North, Rob Stark.


The Khaleesi and Khalasar, Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo, are second in terms of uploaded stories shared on Wattpad.


In the descending order of popularity (and rising order of ego?) we have Jaime, Tyrion, and Cersei Lannister.


Unsurprisingly,  the GOT characters who receive the least love in the series, also get no love on Wattpad. Jorah Mormont, Stannis Baratheon, Margaery Tyrell, and Ramsay Bolton round up the bottom of our list with very few related story uploads. RamseyBolton
