  1. I've been thinking about this a lot as well, and I believe that if the War of the Five Kings (or whatever it's called) were looked at six hundred years later, as we look at the Wars of the Roses, Tyrion would probably be portrayed similarly to Richard III. From what I have heard, the king wasn't necessarily a bad man, but was definitely considered ugly, whether or not he had a hunchback, and was judged to be evil by his appearance (sound familiar?). But the most blatant correlation to Tyrion is the story of the princes in the tower. Richard is accused of arranging the deaths of his nephews to seize the throne, just like how Tyrion was accused of poisoning Joffrey for power. Though there are some differences, I believe Tyrion is based on Richard III, and is supposed to show how he might have been wrongly portrayed by history. I mean, history is written by the victors, and imagine if Cersei's faction is victorious, and history books are written about it, would Tyrion's portrayal really be that different to Richard III's?
