FARGO — Around the world fans, will be tuning in Sunday night, April 14, to the premiere of the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” — but across the country, fans have already been looking up their favorite characters.

Telecommunications company CenturyLink looked up the most Googled "GoT" characters in every state over the past five years and unveiled its findings in a recently released list as exhaustive as Daenerys Targaryen’s many names.

Speaking of the dragon lady, North Dakota is one of 16 states that has a thing for The Unburnt, making her the most searched would-be Westeros ruler.

The Mother of Dragons, Breaker of Chains, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea holds a 10-state lead over her dead husband, Khal Drogo, the second most searched character.

The show’s scheming males got lots of looks, too. The diminutive Tyrion Lannister is big in five states, while the bratty Joffrey Baratheon and conniving Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish were the most searched in four states.

Minnesota was most keen on Ned Stark, perhaps heeding his quote, “Winter is coming.” The North Star State was the only one looking for the late Lord of Winterfell.

Similarly, Jon Snow was one of nine most sought after in only one state.

The survey also included the District of Columbia in its research and those within the Beltway were most curious about the Stark family aide, the hulking Hodor, perhaps seeking out the one character who has the least to say.
