Game of Thrones, Vikings, the Witcher, and countless other series are set in Europe (aka Westeros, "the Continent"). These terrific series take a global perspective--and include shows from the Ottoman Empire, ancient China, and Korea. Don't worry, they still have sword fights (and the occasional attack from the undead).
