7 Most Fabulous Female Characters in Game of Thrones ...


There are some pretty formidable female characters in Game of Thrones!

Although it's clearly set in a very masculine world, and many of the minor female characters seem to spend most of their screen time naked, the women do make an impact as well.

Here are the seven most fabulous female characters in Game of Thrones …2

1. Brienne of Tarth

Brienne of Tarth

One of my favorite female characters in Game of Thrones is the warrior Brienne of Tarth.

Although it can be a bit annoying that she's portrayed as unfeminine and therefore unattractive (Gwendoline Christie can actually look rather beautiful), she's definitely an interesting character, who refuses to adopt the traditional role expected of her as a noble and as a woman.

2. Cersei Lannister

Cersei Lannister

Cersei may not be a remotely likable character, but she's certainly a memorable one.

Willing to do anything to keep her son on the throne, Cersei is a thoroughly ruthless woman.

As her brother Tyrion points out, her one redeeming feature is that she loves her children.

Unfortunately one of them is the loathsome Joffrey, so we don't agree with her.

3. Olenna Tyrell

Olenna Tyrell

Lady Olenna is somewhat like a more agreeable version of Cersei, in that she's also rather ruthless and willing to scheme.

However, you find yourself more on Olenna's side, especially after what she does in Season 4 (I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't yet caught up).

It will be interesting to see how much Margaery develops to resemble her grandmother.

4. Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys started off as a rather wet character, yet over the course of the first season began to show a tougher side.

The scared girl of the first episodes has matured into a woman every bit as ruthless as Cersei or Lady Olenna.

And who wouldn't root for the Mother of Dragons?

Will she regain the Iron Throne?

Well, we can be sure that she'll give it all she's got …
