With its return on April 24, it’s time to check in again on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” The show not only entertains its devoted fans, it also provides a practical guide to succession planning do’s and don’ts. The (spoiler alert) deaths of Ned Stark, Joffrey Baratheon and others provide an interesting peek into the aftermath of sudden death and the benefits of planning for the unexpected. As Jaqen H’ghar tells Arya Stark at the end of Season 2, “Valar Morghulis,” or translated, “All men must die.”
Check out these 14 estate-planning lessons. (Several of these involve major plot points from all five seasons of “Game of Thrones.” Proceed at your own risk.)
