The eighth season of "Game of Thrones" has finally returned! At the end of the last season, Catherine and the "Iron King" Karen discuss the financing of the "Iron Bank" loan, employing the Eastern Army's army to fight against the rebel forces from the North.

The mystical force of the "iron vault" surfaced as a result. In the intricate situation on the Westeros continent, the Iron Treasury has always been a hidden factor that dominates the princes' struggle for hegemony. In a sense, the Game of Thrones is also a game of capital.

If you look back on the story over the past eight years, it is not hard to see that life and death are not the only plot drivers in the vast world view constructed by George R. Martin. After all, "mortal beings will die." Let the plot to today, in addition to the treacherous power competition, there is another force.

1, the game of power, lack of money to play

If the game of power is a game, then the center of the game has always had a big bookmaker who controls the overall situation, and determines how many chips are in the player's hands. This is the “iron treasury”, a mysterious oriental power that is very low-key but runs through the whole world.

The bank, Braavosi, the most powerful city in the East, is the most important gold lord in the world of ice and fire. It is richer than the banks of all other city-states. The “iron treasury” has a large amount of funds and is profitable through lending. When the debtor is unable to repay the debt, the “iron treasury” will support the opposing regimes to replace them, or they will send the killer organization of the gods who believe in the thousand faces. "Come to take his life."

At the end of season 7, we have seen Cersei conspired with the current Iron King of the Iron Islands, Uren Greyjoy, to conspire: on the surface, Oulon is scared away by ghosts, and in fact goes to the Essos continent in the East. Buy Cersei a "golden regiment" known as the strongest mercenary.

The royal family of King's Landing City, of course, does not have enough money to hire such a high-priced legion. Fortunately, the royal family could raise huge amounts of money for war by lending to the coffers.

After the death of Robert I, Catherine decided to refuse to pay the "iron treasury" at the ruling meeting. In order to recover the arrears, the "Iron Vault" turned to the Onion Knight to invest in the insurgent Stannis. The “Iron Vault” indirectly participated in the “Battle of the Five Kings”. | Douban

Coincidentally, when the enemy of the royal family of Junlin City is tight, they will also think of the "iron treasury" of the East and look forward to obtaining the necessary strategic materials from there. With the "debt of the treasury of Westeros", the "iron treasury" has gradually changed from the invisible to the tangible. It can be said that more than half of the Iron Throne of Junlin City is supported by the “iron treasury”.

In the world of "Game of Thrones", you can count on the "iron treasury" and take advantage of the economic wrist. There are three late senior players - Duke of Twyane Lannister, "Little Fingers" Petit Berri and "The Queen of Thorns" Olena Redwin.

2, the old lion Tai Wen's "debt-to-equity"

The Lannister family, the guardians of the west, have long been known for having mines in the home, and their city of Kaiyan is built on the gold mine. The duke of TywinLannister, who has been king's hand for decades, has long had financial dealings with the coffers. During his tenure as King's hand, Tween not only solved many thorny national internal affairs, but also showed a gift in seizing power.

During the usurper war at the end of the mad king's reign, the shrewd Tywin not only bet early on later king Robert Baratheon, but also quickly married his daughter to Robert as queen shortly after Robert became king. As the treasury dried up on Robert's extravagant life, Tween decisively offered Robert a large loan, and, unwittingly, the Lannister family had quietly become the biggest creditor of the royal family in King's Landing City.

The first season of "Game of Thrones" begins, and Ed Stark, who has just taken over as the "King of the King", has been surprised to find that in the debt of the royal family of more than 6 million Golden Dragons, the royal family owes the debt of the Lannister family. There are already 3 million Golden Dragons.

3, chaos is a ladder, it is a cash cow

At the time when the Lannister family ushered in a high-light moment, the finance minister "Little Finger" Petier Berish also relied on years of secret operations to make a fortune. The "small finger" from the cold, from a small tax official in Seagull Town, all the way to the finance minister of the Prime Minister's seven countries, he changed his wealth with a savvy mind.

"Chaos is not an abyss, chaos is a ladder." - "Little Fingers" Quotations | Douban

The "Little finger" made a fortune by seizing the opportunity of the devaluation of the currency of the mainland of Westeros and working with the city-states of the East to make a profit from it by shorting the Westroggin coins. Under the splurge of King Robert, the royal family of King's Landing City was plunged into a heavy debt crisis, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Little finger, proposed the issuance of a new gold dragon with less gold in order to give the royal family more money to pay off its debts.

This is simply an empty glove white wolf! It seems that for the "little finger", chaos is not only a ladder, but also the key to opening the door to wealth. The "small finger" that plays the "iron treasury", although not winning the throne, has also made a fortune in the troubled times. .

4. Saving a good coin against the risk of devaluation

In addition to the "little finger" in the devaluation of Westerloin, there is also the head of the Tyrell family, Queen of Thorns, Olena, who is the "Little Finger" ally. After discovering that the gold content of the new currency has fallen, she took decisive measures. Under her instruction, the rich Tyrell family only used the new gold with lower gold content, while the old gold coins with higher gold content were hoarded. Ready for the future.

After all, in the chaotic world of rights travel, even if you have money in hand, you have to think about the value of saving money. Olena has been storing old coins of the past, even though the coins look small and thin.

Cersei also laughed at her, arguing that the rose family's reputation for generosity was nothing more than that-it must have been a trick to deceive businessmen.

It is also because of the preservation of the wealth of the Tyrell family that the Tyrell family, located in the southern river bay, can always remain invincible in the troubled war, even the Lannister family, which is sitting on the gold mine. Also had to choose to marry the Tyrell family after the battle of the Blackwater River.

The Lannister family had gold, the Tyrell family had good fields, the Tyrell family had good land, the rich, the goods and the brains, and the combination of the two families allowed the royal family of King's Landing City to continue. | Bean flap

After ransacking the Tyrell family's court, the Lannister family monopolized the Westeros continent's gold mines and the most fertile land in the south, and how he would use his assets and the "iron vault" to mediate borrowing. And what will be done to deal with the increasing burden of debt? I'm afraid we won't get the answer until we finish the eighth season.

At the end of the seventh season, Lannister, who had paid off a huge amount of flowers, once again won the support of the “iron treasury”. Thur and the "Iron Vault" messenger Tycho Nestoris | Douban
