The fourth season of Games of Thrones has come to an end. The television series, based on the books by George R.R. Martin, is well known for its raw depiction of death and betrayal in the mystical land of Westeros.

In this regard, season four of Game of Thrones is no exception, every Sunday evening had its fair share of duels and bloodshed.

The deaths in Game of Thrones were Robert M Ball’s inspiration for his ‘Beautiful Death’ series, a collection of illustrations made by him portraying the most important deaths of the Game of Thrones Universe.


Shown here are the deaths of the most recent season of Game of Thrones.
