In our mashup-obsessed culture, it seems only inevitable that someone would try to combine “Game of Thrones” and “Hamilton,” considering how the HBO series and Broadway hit have dominated the public consciousness over the last few months. What is more surprising is that the person who actually went and blended the two together is none other than “Hamilton” creator himself, Lin-Manuel Miranda.
On Wednesday, Miranda — who played Alexander Hamilton himself in the Tony Award-winning phenomena — tweeted out a picture of Jon Snow with a caption taken from the lyrics of the “Hamilton” song, “Election of 1800” with the hashtag #HamOfThrones.
In response to Miranda’s tweet, fans of both “Game of Thrones” and “Hamilton” are mashing up Miranda’s words with images from George R.R. Martin‘s world, and Miranda is retweeting some of his favorites, including the Lord Commander elections, Daenerys’ dragons as the Schuyler sisters, and Slavers’ Bay as the cotton plantations of the South.
