This is a good discussion on how Song/GoT is constructed from medievalisms -- which is to say, medieval history at secondhand, as interpreted through the Victorian and Pre-Raphaelite craze (arch-romantics) and then the Tolkien century. Constructed in the sense that Martin is anti-romantic, so that in effect GoT is a kick in the teeth to the Victorians and their heirs. In a nice irony, he comes close to real medieval romance, which concerned itself with questions of violence.
