Mayan Kingdom resembling a Game of Thrones kingdom uncovered in Guatemala

A recently uncovered 1,500-year-old altar from the Mayan Snake Kingdom may demonstrate Game of Thrones was more similar to reality than we thought.

There’s still no proof of mythical beasts, zombies and time travelers. However, there was unquestionably a ton of double-crossing all through history. Thomas Barrientos, Co-Director of the task which exhumed the area in La Corona, Guatemala, stated:

“The altar reveals to us a part of Guatemalan history from 1,500 years ago. I would say it is Mayan history’s version of Games of Thrones.”

Barrientos talked about  the Kaanul line, which rose to control in the Classic Mayan period from 250 AD. He compared it to Thrones as a result of the complex political and military strategies it utilized.

Barrientos also noted that the sacrificial stone indicated King Chak Took Ich’aak. He was the Governor of La Corona, ‘sitting and holding a staff on which there are portrayals of the two Gods of the city.’

He said the revelation demonstrated the political intensity of the masters of Kaanul and the Snake Kingdom they utilized it to topple rivals from Tikal in 562 AD. The Snake Kings proceeded to run the Mayan swamps, in south-eastern Meso-America, for almost 200 years.

The sacrificial stone, which was etched in stone and weighs right around a ton. It’s estimated to be 1.46 meters (4.7 feet) long and 1.20 meters (3.9 feet) wide. It is as of now being displayed at the National Museum of Archeology and Ethnology in Guatemala City.
