Game of Thrones Exhibition - House Baratheon and House Lannister

House Baratheon

The House information graphic was to the left.
I wasn't able to get a good pic of it because one woman stood there
forever reading it. When I did get one, it was too blurry.
Oh well. I give you this instead.
"Ours is the fury."
House Baratheon founded after the conquest of Aegon Targaryen, has ruled the Seven Kingdoms for the past several decades after Robert [won?] the Iron Throne from the Mad King Aerys Targaryen. The ancestral family seat of Storm’s End was held by Robert’s younger brother Renly – an insult to the older Stannis who was relegated to the [drafty?] island stronghold of Dragonstone. With Robert gone and Joffrey in power, Stannis has [commanded?] himself to [taking?] the Iron Throne from Joffrey, whom he believes is not Robert’s true son.

Robert's drinking horn and crown. Renly's crown. Davos Seaworth's fingers!?

House Lannister

House Lannister.

The wealthiest family in Westeros, the Lannisters of Casterly Rock ruled as kings in their realm until the Targaryen dragons conquered the continent. Over recent decades, the shrewd power-brokering of Lord Tywin Lannister has led the family to a lofty position. The marriage of his daughter, Cersei Lannister, to King Robert Baratheon brought the Lannisters to King’s Landing. Their power was further solidified with the ascendance of her son Joffrey to the Iron Throne, although whispers about Joffrey’s legitimacy abound. Cersei’s brother Tyrion, who has a genuine interest in the well-being of the realm, does what he can to keep his nephew’s imperiousness in check.

Ooh, look at the dashing Jaime Lannister in the left corner.
Costumes (from left to right): Cersei, Tyrion, Tywin, and Jaime.
Joffrey's duds are behind Cersei's (not visible in this pic).
