Watch the rise and fall of the Baratheons in one fan-made supercut

HBO's "Game of Thrones" began with one Baratheon on the Iron Throne and two others on the Small Council. This fan-made video shows the rise and fall of the once-great house of Westeros.

How the mighty have fallen.

While the Baratheons ruled the Seven Kingdoms in the first season of HBO's "Game of Thrones," King Robert and Lords Renly and Stannis Baratheon are all dead, leaving the Lannisters and, to a lesser extent, the Tyrells to rule over Westeros.

A fan-made video by YouTube filmmaker M&M posted Monday shows the rise and fall -- mainly the fall -- of House Baratheon. The clip features key moments from King Robert's story arc, as well as Renly and Stannis' futile attempts to reclaim the Iron Throne after Robert's death, all pieced together to create an entertaining "Game of Thrones" video.

The only way it could have been better is if it had ended with Stannis Baratheon's final words, when he tells Brienne of Tarth to "go on, do your duty" before she (apparently) ends his life. Stannis' almost certain death (his killing wasn't actually shown in the series, but the episode's director confirmed his death to Entertainment Weekly) is inexplicably left out of the video, even though it shows how both Robert and Renly perished before him.

Still, the clip is well worth a watch, and you can check it out below. "Game of Thrones" Season 6 will premiere in the spring of 2016 with no Baratheons vying for the Iron Throne. Well, except the one who already sits on the throne, though Tommen is only a Baratheon by name.
