The results are in: Which Game of Thrones character is your college?

Inter-College stereotypes are coming…

Game of Thrones got which college which game of thrones character is your college

With Season 8 just round the corner, HBO has recently dropped some hints about the final season of the most pirated series in the world. I wouldn't ask any of your Engling friends about it because they'll obviously claim their superiority having "actually read the books first". However, legend has it that George RR Martin once visited Cambridge and that each character is a metaphor for the each of the colleges. We can neither confirm nor deny, but here are some of our extremely well-researched theories here at the Tab (citations not included):


Christ's – Margaery Tyrell

Image may contain: Clothing, Apparel, Hair, Jewelry, Face, Accessories, Accessory, Person, Human

"Burn, baby, burn."

Very pretty. Power-seeking. Christ's took the Tompkins Table like Margaery took the 3 Baratheon boys. Hidden negative qualities aka the Typewriter…

Churchill – Shireen Baratheon

Image may contain: Girl, Painting, Art, Portrait, Photo, Photography, Female, Person, Face, Human

*Says she'll do anything to help her father. Complains when sacrificed*

Overarching theme of :"grey" and "stone". Hidden out of sight. While Shireen deserved better, Churchill should be burned just for the architecture.

Clare – Cersei Lannister

Image may contain: Skin, Female, Face, Clothing, Apparel, Human, Person


Central and power-hungry. Has a penchant for using cellars in questionable ways. Just down the road from Caius…if you know, you know.

Clare Hall – Xaro Xhoan Daxos

Image may contain: Man, Person, Human, Face

"A man is what others say he is and no more." You're a f***boi, Xaro, no more.

Will vouch for you. Seems like a decent guy. Claims to have riches unimaginable. Actually has nothing. May or may not sleep with your maid.

Corpus Christi – Lyanna Mormont

Image may contain: Fur, Female, Hair, Clothing, Apparel, Face, Person, Human

Get off your high horse hun

Small yet impactful. Has 62 good men. Large but niche fan base. Lyanna will have no hesitation calling you out just like a Corpy bedder will for your one night stands.

Darwin – Maester Aemon

Image may contain: Man, Face, Human, Person

Lots of love for you, Aemon

I know nothing of Darwin's secrets like nobody knows a thing of Maester Aemon's…spoilers kidz! Also he's old (bit of a cop out I know, but there are 31 colleges and I've been here for 7 weeks, cut me some slack)

Downing – Lady Olenna

Image may contain: Face, Couch, Furniture, Human, Person, Apparel, Clothing

"I want her to know it was me." ICONIC

Air of hautiness (we get it, you have nice beds). Wealthy. Close to Spoons = watch your drinks kids!

Emmanuel – Tyrion Lannister

Image may contain: Man, Photo, Portrait, Photography, Beard, Person, Face, Human

"I drink and I know things." UCAS Personal Statement?

Easy access to pubs and clubs. Small. Kind. Not-so-secretly smart. Might cross-bow you for sleeping with his main gal.

Fitzwilliam – Leaf

Image may contain: Military Uniform, Photography, Photo, Portrait, Military, Face, Human, Person, Head

"Bran, we f***ed up…" JESUS, Leaf did you not think before plunging dragonglass into some rando's heart?!

You have to venture to the edge of the known world to see them, questionable aesthetic that suggests edginess-gone-wrong. Not inherently bad though, has just made a few bad life choices.

Girton – Quaithe

Image may contain: Tribe, Person, Face, Human, Head


Rarely seen and often forgotten by fake fans. Shrouded in mystery. Significance: debatable.

Gonville and Caius – Jaime Lannister

Image may contain: Person, Human

Pushed a child out of a window and commits incest on the reg…still a fan fave? Wuuuut.

Central and got the monies. Name is also a b**** to pronounce if you're not in the know. Questionable morals. Still super pretty despite its downfalls.

Homerton – Samwell Tarly

Image may contain: Performer, Photo, Portrait, Photography, Beard, Head, Person, Face, Human

That greyscale removal scene has me scarred for life. *Voms*

Wants to study to be a teacher. A little out of the way. Loveable rogue vibe. Not popular with the rest of the fam, but nonetheless important.

Hughes Hall – Whose Hall?

Image may contain: Art, Face, Human, Person

An exclusive candid of me walking out of Hall with my Sunday brunch

Never heard of it. So here's a picture of Hot Pie. Enjoy x

Jesus – Khal Drogo

Image may contain: Tattoo, Man, Face, Person, Human, Skin

Jason Momoa just doing Jason Momoa. Absolute God.

Sporty gym lad. Obsession with horses. Long hair like the college namesake. No word for thank you. Welcomes smothering by pillow.

King's – Hodor

Image may contain: Outdoors, Nature, Word, Alphabet, Text, Novel, Book, Advertisement, Poster


Big, friendly and a solid fan fave. Tragically sacrifices itself so the rest of the colleges can escape the hordes of undead tourists bombarding us on a Saturday morning. Bloody good door…will always be too soon.

Lucy Cavendish – Lord Varys

Image may contain: Overcoat, Home Decor, Coat, Human, Person, Clothing, Apparel

*says something profound in that devilishly soothing voice*

Very mature, and no balls in sight. (Low blow, sorry Lucy Cav xxx)

Magdalene – Euron Greyjoy

Image may contain: Man, Face, Person, Human


Like Euron controls the waters with his fleet, Magdalene just has to say the word and a fleet of Scudamore's punts will take the Cam ready to attack all the river colleges.

Murray Edwards – Jaqen H'ghar

Image may contain: Human, Person, Fashion, Cloak, Apparel, Clothing

"A man has no name…call me Medwards."

The many faced man, can suddenly change persona for a price…£30 million perhaps NEW HALL?! Insult his building and your face will end up sliced up on his wall. Be nice to Medwards students, kids.

Newnham – Yara (Asha) Greyjoy

Image may contain: Coat, Jacket, Female, Head, Costume, Face, Person, Human, Clothing, Apparel

"I never demand, but I'm up for anything really."

Strong and independent. Like Yara, Newnham don't need no man. Known, but not quite so central.

Pembroke – Ellaria Sand

Image may contain: Finger, Human, Person

Not managing to get to Pembroke for its infamously good food summed up in one picture

Not the first college you might think of, but certainly not to be overlooked. Neither old nor young and naturally very beautiful. May have seen boyf have his head crushed on a night out.

Peterhouse – Renly Baratheon and Loras Tyrell

Image may contain: Female, Poster, Advertisement, Head, Face, Person, Human

*slices nipple to make a pointless metaphor*

The Adonian Society is gone but never forgotten. Sorry Peterhouse it's the first thing ANYONE says when I mention your college.

Queens' – Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains and MOTHER OF DRAGONS

Image may contain: Apparel, Clothing, Female, Photo, Portrait, Photography, Rock, Face, Person, Human

When they forget one of your titles…"DRACARYS B****es!"

A Kween if ever I saw one. Situated just off the centre of the plot and of Cambridge. Ready to strike. May have just banged her own nephew.

Robinson – Red Woman

Image may contain: Female, Face, Cloak, Fashion, Human, Person, Apparel, Clothing

For the night is dark and full of much expensiveness

Red. Just red. Would sacrifice an innocent or give birth to a demon baby to get lower rent.

Selwyn – The Night King

Image may contain: Human, Person

Night King = my inspiration for overcoming the walls put in my way <3 BURN it down…

I struggled for this one so bear with me…The Night King has an odd obsession with Jon Snow…Selwyn has a Snow Ball? I tried ok.

Sidney Sussex – Lord Petyr Baelish

Image may contain: Photo, Portrait, Photography, Head, Man, Face, Person, Human

Chaos is a ladder. Sainsbury's is a lift.

Like Lord Baelish utilises every resource at his fingertips to dominate the Game of Thrones, while Sidney Sussex students are so well-positioned in relation to Mainsbury's that they alone could create chaos if they bought up all of its pizzas. You have the power guys. Utilise your resources.

St Catharine's – Catelyn Stark

Image may contain: Skin, Face, Coat, Fur, Human, Person, Clothing, Apparel

She. Deserved. Better. But I still hate her for despising Jon…

A tad guarded (have you seen those wrought iron fences?), still relatively quite nice, and the basic connection of the name – at least ONE character had to be assigned THAT lazily.

St Edmund's – Ser Jorah Mormont

Image may contain: Man, Beard, Human, Person, Face

*radiates Friendzone-ness*

St Edmund's, another mature character for a mature college! Probably has greyscale, approach with caution!

St John's – Viserys Targaryen

Image may contain: Smile, Performer, Beard, Blonde, Female, Teen, Kid, Woman, Girl, Child, Dating, Person, Face, Human


Any explanation needed? Death by molten gold being poured over your head sounds like a pretty John's way to go if you ask me…

Trinity – Tywin Lannister

Image may contain: Face, Person, Human

He had like ONE nice moment with Arya but all we focus on is him sleeping with his dwarf son's girlfriend/former prostitute and being crossbowed on the toilet…confused? Me too.

Lots of money. Lots of power. Large sphere of influence. Tywin owns/ed half of the known world while Trinity owns half of Tesco…who's the real winner here?! Death by crossbow parallel to the above sounds like a pretty Trinity way to go as well.

Trinity Hall – Tommen Baratheon

Image may contain: Crypt, Flooring, Home Decor, Pillar, Column, Apparel, Clothing, Human, Person, Building, Architecture

It is King's Landing after all…

Perhaps slightly overshadowed but nonethless very sweet and innocent. Like Orgasm Bridge situated just outside Tit Hall, there's a rise, there's a climax, then there's one Hell of a fall…

Wolfson – House Stark

Image may contain: Cloak, Fashion, Human, Person, Coat, Jacket, Apparel, Clothing

"The Lone Wolf dies, but the Pack survives."

WOLFson…Dire WOLF? No? Just me? Okay well you're near the end of the article now sooooo just accept my lack of creativity and move on.

So, there we have it! What do you think? Do you agree? (I imagine most of you won't). Tell your friends and debate the bigger questions in life like which GOT character best emulates your college! Here's to a killer Season 8. APRIL IS COMING!
