Game of Thrones fans will appreciate how much these house words resonate with financial practices and money management.

HBO’s Game of Thrones series has drawn millions of viewers into its complex plot. Esquire reports that the first Game of Thrones season premiere viewership was at 2.2 million, and The Hollywood Reporter tallied 3.9 million viewers for the show’s season two premiere. With today’s season three continuation of the Game of Thrones series scheduled to air on HBO at 9:00 P.M., GoBankingRates investigates the house mottos of the show’s main families. Its findings uncover that six “house words” directly apply to good financial and savings practices that Americans can incorporate into their overall money strategy.

The new report reveals the house mottos of each family involved with the series, including the Starks, Tullys, Lannisters, Targaryens, Baratheons and Tyrells. The sayings are then analyzed from a financial context and consumers learn practical ways to carry out each core financial value to help their overall financial approach. For example, the unofficial motto of the affluent Lannisters, “A Lannister always pays his debts,” emphasizes that paying off debts is one step to achieving wealth in the long run.

“Game of Thrones fans will appreciate how much these house words resonate with financial practices and money management,” says Jennifer Calonia editor for GoBankingRates and Game of Thrones enthusiast.

Calonia continues, “It’s surprising how easily these house words can be applied to your general mindset about money. My favorite is the breakdown of the Starks’ house words, ‘winter is coming’-- it really is an eye-opener.”
