Since its inception on television, Game of Thrones has become a global phenomenon. But fans are already feeling anxious over the inevitability of the show wrapping it all up in just two more seasons.

But fear not "GOT" fans. There is plenty more material in the wonderful world that George R.R. Martin has created. Here we list five potential spin-offs from the magical realm of A Song of Ice and Fire.

Aegon's Conquest

The show has not touched on the adventures of Aegon I Targaryen and his sister-wives Rhaenys and Visenya as much as you would hope. This arc has potential to become a successful television series. The story could begin at Daenys Targaryen, an ancestor of Aegon, Rhaenys and Visenya, having a vision of the Doom of Valyria.

The Targaryens along with the Celtigars and Velaryons escape before the cataclysmic event takes place.

A century or so later Aegon and his sisters who grew up in Dragonstone, conquer Westeros uniting the whole land into Six Kingdoms as opposed to seven as Dorne remained unconquered. The Iron Throne is forged and the Targaryens rule Westeros until Robert's Rebellion.

Robert's Rebellion

Crown Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, son of Mad King Aerys, "kidnaps" Lyanna Stark, sister of Brandon, Eddard and Benjen Stark. Brandon demands his sister to be returned only to see the Mad King kill him and his father. Robert Baratheon, who was betrothed to Lyanna, is a fellow ward with Eddard in the Vale under John Arryn. When the Mad King orders the two boys' heads John Arryn calls his banners and the Seven Kingdoms go into war.

This arc has some amazing stories that need to be shown on screens including the famous Battle of the Trident where Robert and Rhaegar face off.

Tales of Dunk and Egg

The Tales of Dunk and Egg is a series of novellas that George R.R. Martin has so kindly and enthusiastically invested his time to that it has enough material to become a spin-off series. It revolves around the adventures of Dunk or Ser Duncan the Tall and Egg or future King Aegon V Targaryen around Westeros.

The books also feature a lot of backstory to the Targaryens, their family feud with the Blackfyres and elaborately describes the lifestyle of the Dragonkings.

The Long Night

Around 8000 years before Argon's Conquest, during the Age of Heroes, Westeros fell into a period of darkness known as The Long Night. The darkness lasted a generation and unleashed all kinds of horrors at mankind. There are mentions of The Long Night outside of Westeros as well, stretching as far East as Yi-Ti and Asshai.

It is during this time that the First Men discovered that dragon glass could kill the Others.

This period gave rise to the stories of Azor Ahai and his sword the Lightbringer. The Wall was, apparently, built by Bran the Builder during this time to avoid another attack by the Others. This particular arc would make a phenomenal spin-off series.

Dance of the Dragons

Dance of the Dragons is the name given to the Targaryen civil war that erupted over the succession of the Iron Throne between Aegon II and his half-sister Rhaenyra. The dance took place around 129 years after Aegon's Conquest, it features some epic fire breathing dragon fights high up in the sky.

Almost the whole of Westeros is divided into two Targaryen factions and the politics over who would become the next ruler is unbelievably riveting. This arc has all the hallmarks of becoming as successful as the ongoing show. #HBO #Entertainment #Games of Thrones
