So here are the women from Game of Thrones, and their main character features that make everyone love or hate them. Who’s your favorite?
Daenerys Targaryen, only the fact that she has the only 3 dragons in the world and the biggest army is enough to make you fear her. And it’s not only that, she is a natural born leader as you can see, both with the dragons and her people. She can also survive certain fiery deaths as she already did… two times.The most amazing fact is that she came out of those two fires as beautiful as ever.
Margaery Tyrell used her charm and looks to earn a place on the Baratheon family by her first marriage with King Joffrey Baratheon and later with his little brother King Tommen Baratheon.
Lady Ollena Tyrell is a very witty and resourceful woman. Lady Ollena knows her place and role in the entire grand scheme and that is why she could deny Cersei Lannister’s attempt at an alliance with so much ease.
With so much that she has been through, Sansa Stark is a tremendously valuable asset in the battle of Winterfell and that is due to her ability to transform all her weaknesses and wounds into a character as strong as steel.
Cersei Lannister, the protector of King’s Landing, the mother of the youngest Kings, driven by her love of power and the pain of losing her children, nothing will stop her from conquering all her enemies.
Melisandre, the Red Priestess, represents the fire in a world of ice. She is a Prophet of the Lord of Light. She is this beautiful because she gains her looks from a necklace that she never takes off.
Catelyn Stark is a woman who inspired her children to do great things. She’s a beautiful and strong loving mother, gone in a terrible coup-de-grace.
Brienne of Tharth, Sansa’s triumphant Guardian, is the only female Knight that swore to protect the ones that she trust.
Arya Stark was only a child when her mother and brother died. She grew so strong in so little time driven by her vengeance towards those who’ve wronged her and her family.
Ygritte is a wildling warrior. She’s very skilled in combat and extremely charming. You probably know her famous line: “You know nothing, John Snow.”
Yara Greyjoy is the next successor as the Lord of the Iron Isles. She’s a strong and capable leader who fought alongside men who did not make it back home as powerful as her.
Meera Reed has an important role in Bran Stark’s life and had a great impact in molding him with her survival and hunting skills. She literally saved his life.
Osha is also a wildling that had a huge impact on the Stark family as she became an important asset taking care of the youngest of them all and guiding them through hard times.
Shae is a very witty and charming woman. She climbed the social ladder by falling in love with Tyrion Lannister and helped him during very hard times when he was Hand of the King.
With a deadly disease and a troubled family, Shireen still kept her spirits high and made Sir Davos Seaworth a friend, whom she taught how to read. A very witty girl indeed.
Ellaria Sand, the right hand of Oberyn Martell who she has 3 daughters with, is a very strong, amazing, and straightforward woman.
Missandei, the best friend of the Mother of Dragons, ascended from her social position as a slave to the most trusted advisor with only her skills, knowledge and character.
Obara Sand, one of the daughters of Oberyn Martell, is a very skilled woman who did her best in order to achieve her mother’s plans.
Nymeria Sand, a child out of wedlock, whose father is Oberyn, uses an 8 ft whip as a weapon of choice. She is extremely deadly at medium and close range.
Talisa Maegyr is a healer on the battlefield and she became Robb Stark’s wife. He fell in love with her looks and her intellect.
Irri was given by Khal Drogo to Daenerys. She is the first building block into her reign as she taught her the language and customs that she needed to know in order to reach the place she is in now.
Gilly, a wildling girl who was pregnant and in danger when Samwell Tarly and Jon Snow saved her, is an important character in creating a more confident Samwell.
Myranda, a very dedicated and resourceful lover of Ramsay Bolton, would have given up her life for him.
Daenerys Targaryen deserves another spot on this list just because of her road from where she started to where she is now. Surviving the deceptions of her brother and the roughness of the Dothraki, not only did she become the Mother of Dragons, but also the Commander of the Unsullied army. She has truly become a powerful woman.
The women in Game of Thrones are either born with power or gain it through intelligence, wit, charm and a strong will. Which one is your favorite?
