There has been plenty of backlash when it comes to the way Jon Snow, Daenerys and the living Westerosi defended Castle Winterfell from The Night King and his army of White Walkers in Season 8 Episode 3 (The Long Night) of HBO's Game of Thrones. Well, this has been discussed by many, including us here. Tactics aside, there is always the issue of build-up - that anticipatory moment before the siege, the decisions behind why certain strategies are made and the sacrifices different commanders have to make in order to win the overall battle.
Well, here then, in no particular order, is our selection of the Top 10 sieges from various cinematic endeavors (film and television series) depicting either a fantasy element (eg. Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings) or medieval/historical element (eg. Anglo-Saxons, Vikings) where a group of warriors/soldiers has to lay siege to a castle, fort or barricade while it is being defended.
