Who Is Most Likely To Win Game Of Thrones, According To Science

If your office is anything like LADbible HQ, there might be a few Game of Thrones sweepstakes on the go alongside a detailed breakdown of each and every character to tick whether you think they will be alive, dead or become a White Walker by the end of the eighth and final season - which starts tomorrow, btw.

And if you didn't know that by now, there's no hope whatsoever.

It's set to be the biggest show on the TV and could attract more than one billion viewers. You might have already seen a few spoilers or read some suggestions but now we have science to answer everything (or claim to at least).

Yes, that's right - there are some scientists in the world packing in their 'sciencey' projects to focus on an algorithm to analyse data about Game of Thrones and predict the survival chances of each character. Time well spent, if we do say so ourselves.

The researchers from the Technical University of Munich have now predicted who is most likely to take the top spot and perch of the coveted Iron Throne.

The algorithms suggest that Daenerys Targaryen has the highest chance (99 per cent) of surviving the harrowing Game of Thrones world with Tyrion Lannister following swiftly behind with a survival rate of 97 per cent.

There obviously isn't a guarantee that this will be accurate, so don't go putting your savings on any of these outcomes, we beg you.

However, it might be worth bearing in mind that back in 2016 and just before the airing of Season 6 students of the same course created an algorithm that accurately predicted Jon Snow's resurrection.

At the time, Dr Guy Yachdav, said: "In its daily work, our research group focuses on answering complex biological questions using data mining and machine learning algorithms. For this project we used similar techniques. Only this time the subject matter was a popular TV show."

The first episode of the eighth season of Game of Thrones lands on HBO on Sunday 14 April for viewers in the United States, while the UK can get their fix the next day on Monday 15 April.
