Stop whatever you are doing this very instance Game of Thrones fans. Another new Season 4 trailer is here.

Set to air this April, it is full of violence, the Lannisters being all kinds of evil, Jon Snoooow fighting with his ex wildling lover and Jaime's got a snappy new haircut. By golly it's going to be good.

We'll shut up and you can watch the latest trailer:



We're guessing this series Daenerys Targaryen/Khaleesi/Mother of Dragons will be upping her plight to claim the iron throne.

She may be a bit twisty - but we reckon we could all learn a lot from her. And her dragons too.

10 rules for life from Daenerys


1. If at first you don't succeed
Did Denyrus give up when she was told repeatedly she'd never sit on the iron throne? You can bet your wildling she didn't. She got herself a bunch of dragons, an army of freed slaves and powered on like a boss.

2. Your family don't always know what's best
Whether they're selling you off to be the wife of a Dothraki war lord or just being a tad meddlesome - your family don't always have your best interests at heart.

3. Learn new skills
Remember when Kraznys mo Nakloz thought Khalessi didn't speak Valyrian and called her a bitch, and then she was like 'suck it fool, I totally speak Valyrian' and then she set fire to him?

Learn to fight, a language, to ride horses - all important life skills. Never stop challenging yourself.

4. Don't just marry anyone
Some boys are only after your dragons.

5. Take advice
However determined you are, it's always good to heed advice from those in the know (even if those people are kind of creepy but still oddly hot Jorah Mormont).

6. Enjoy some me time
Even when trying to take back the seven kingdoms - Daenerys finds time for a bath and some alone time.

7. Be mindful of all
Respect everyone you meet regardless of rank (unless they don't want you to sit on the iron throne - then burn them. Burn them all).

8. Get an arsenal of dragons
Metaphorically speaking of course. You could be the best cake baker or acquisitions manager in the world - know your strengths and shout about them.

9. Get what you want in the sack
Just because he's a total Dothraki babe doesn't mean he can get away not knowing where the clitoris is.

10. Don't get big headed
Just because you can't be killed by fire, men fall at your feet and you have amazing hair - be humble. No one likes a show off.
