I have a group of friends who are real fans of GOT and of that genre of historio-fantasy. I dabble. We had breakfast this morning at a local diner after our morning chores were done and here is the group consensus
1) Bran Stark, the new High King, is both young man and old man at the same time. His access to all of history will make his leadership both wisdom filled and practical. He is likely to have a long, long, life as have all of the three-eyed ravens. He will put into place structures that allow for the selection of the next High King or Queen well before his death such that the new monarch will have a breaking-in period as heir designate and for fairer government of all the people.
2) The various political and economic entities that make up the world of GOT (with the addition of, perhaps, new lands found by Arya Stark) will be welded into a union of sorts with the beginnings of a rulers Parliament. Paradoxically, Bran is brought to leadership by Daenerys Targaryen by her death and it is he who will "Break the Wheel" of cyclical war for power.
Sansa Stark will found a line of monarchs in the North at Winterfell and will eventually become an ally of the King Beyond the Wall, Jon Stark (Targaryen), whose lands, now freed of the curse of the Night King, will come to resemble Winterfell with its four seasons. The Wildlings will hold onto their name but prosper. BTW...since the far North is where Dire Wolves come from and since packs of them are believed to remain there...the Dire Wolf's association with House Stark will continue. Oh, and there will likely be dragons too....read on.
3) Drogon, the last of the three dragons, has returned "home" to Essos (Drogon was spotted flying East), the place of origins of the Targaryen line in Old Valyria and of their dragons. Five thousand years ago, men of the Valyrian Freehold learned how to master and ride dragons as beasts of war, and used them to forge an empire that stretched across most of the continent of Essos, dominating almost half of the Known World. Four hundred years before the War of the Five Kings, the entire Valyrian empire and almost all of its dragons were destroyed in a single day, during a cataclysmic volcanic eruption known as the Doom of Valyria. One Valyrian noble family, the Targaryens, survived the Doom on the distant island outpost of Dragonstone in the Narrow Sea - along with the last surviving Valyrian dragons.
But Drogon is the last of their kind, right? A common misconception is that Daenerys' dragons are all males. That is not true. Dragons do not have a fixed gender. They can change to male or female as needed and have both the sperm and eggs necessary to reproduce, normally 20 years after their birth.
4) And seeing as Jon Stark, likely the new King Beyond the Wall, is the only one left alive who can theoretically tame dragons—being of Targaryen blood—he could maybe find himself back in command of the most powerful creature in the known world, and/or his progeny (sons and daughters) could.
5) Grey Worm and the Unsullied sailed for the Isle of Naath. It's located in the continent of Sothoryos - the third continent in the Game of Thrones' lore - which is south of Essos and southeast of Westeros. It's where Missandei is from and where she wanted to go back to after Daenerys took back the Seven Kingdoms. While Missandei is no longer alive, Grey Worm still kept his promise to go there, and he took the Unsullied with him. Lacking the means to reproduce since they have been castrated this may mean that they will cease to exist. Another possibility is that they will become a Spartan-Like Society and welcome recruits and even adopt children from the many lands where war has left many options. Hopefully they will not turn to kidnapping as that is another form of slavery.
THERE YA GO......ANY OTHER THRONERS OUT THERE? If so, what think ye?
