THE IRONBORN ARE LOVECRAFTIAN CULTISTS?

This is perhaps more homage than Easter egg, but the Ironborn, Game of Thrones’incompetent Vikings analog, have a religion that will be familiar to readers of H.P. Lovecraft’s cosmic horror stories. The Ironborn worship a deity called the Drowned God, who dwells within the oceans, and their prayer is “What is dead may never die.” Even people with a passing knowledge of the Cthulhu mythos will recognize the similarities to Cthulhu, a horrifying cosmic being who slumbers at the bottom of the ocean, and the Ironborn’s prayer is similar to a line in Lovecraft’s famous couplet “That is not dead which can eternal lie.” Is it possible that, when the White Walkers march south of the Wall, the Ironborn priests will summon the public domain Cthulhu to stomp some ice zombies? We can dream.
