ASoIaF Characters With The Most POV Chapters

Updated April 18, 2019 6.9k views24 items

Who has the most chapters in the Game of Thrones books? Each novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin is written from the point of view of a different character. Tyrion Lannister has the honor of most Game of Thrones chapters, coming in at 49. He's followed by Jon Snow with 42, and then Arya Stark, who not only has 34 ASoIaF chapters, but holds the distinction of being the only character with at least one POV chapter in every book so far, including a preview chapter from The Winds of Winter.

Some other important statistics to help inform your Game of Thrones fan theories:

  • Cersei does not have a chapter at all until the fourth book, A Feast for Crows.
  • Davos Seaworth has MORE chapters than Cersei does.
  • Bran has the very first chapter of the entire series, which could point to his importance (get your Bran theories here).
  • Catelyn has a pretty high number of chapters, especially when compared with Bran and Sansa.

This list includes all officially announced preview chapters from The Winds of Winter, though who knows at all when that book will even come out. In the meantime, revisit the Game of Thrones POV chapter counts below and use this info to speculate for potentially years to come about how the Game of Thrones books might end.
