HBO’s lavish fantasy “Game of Thrones” returns March 31 to once again transport audiences to the land of Westeros, where the fight for control of the Iron Throne continues and death lurks around every corner.

To help test your Westeros know-how, we’ve put together a “Game of Thrones” quiz — what better way to help you brush up on your High Valyrian?

The series’ third season will be loosely drawn from the first half of “A Storm of Swords,” the massive third book in George R.R. Martin’s long-running “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, which takes the sprawling narrative in some surprising, unexpected directions.

For their part, show runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are keeping plot details close to the boiled leather vest, but in a recent interview with Hero Complex, they did drop a few hints about what viewers can expect from the upcoming run of episodes.

“There are a lot of very sharp reversals of fortune, surprising reversals of fortune, low-brought-high and high-laid-low moments, where people end the season in very different circumstances than they began the season,” said Weiss.

Love is in the air as well.

“There’s a good amount of romance in this season, far more romance than in previous seasons,” he said.
