Things I Like: Margaery Tyrell (Game of Thrones)

Margaery Tyrell Game of Thrones HBO

One of my favorite characters on Game of Thrones was Margaery Tyrell. Being the daughter of the one of the most powerful lords in Westeros, she gets married to King Renly Bartheon after he declares Cersei’s children bastards and ignores that the fact that Stannis has more right to the Iron Throne. She would have been Queen then if Renly didn’t play games and got assassinated by a weird shadow ghost.

Margaery Tyrell and Sansa Stark Game of Thrones HBO

When House Tyrell allies with House Lannister to take down Stannis, Margaery is welcomed to King’s Landing and becomes King Joffrey’s new fiancee. The Tyrell women try to befriend Sansa Stark and almost set her free through marriage, but Tywin fixed that.

Joffrey seemed to be pretty happy with his new bride.

She’s the new Queen for a few hours until Joffrey is poisoned by her grandma. Whoops!

Margaery Tyrell marries King Tommen Baratheon Game of Thrones HBO

Which was a giant (and dangerous) plan for her to marry the much softer and kinder brother Tommen. In the show this also causes a huge age difference than in the books. While the show might of made Margeary in her late teen or early twenties, Dormer at the time was in her early 30’s. They aged Tommen up to 16 as in the books he’s only like 7 or 8 when he marries her when she’s like 15 I think.

Margaery Tyrell becomes political prisoner of the High Sparrow Game of Thrones HBO

I really hated how she was treated by Cersei during the High Sparrow story-line. Despite her wealth, beauty, and intelligence, it took her forever to politically trick the High Sparrow to winning her own freedom.

I was sad to see her go when Cersei blew up the Great Sept of Baelor which killed all of her enemies and a few “friends” and family members too. But to be fair, it would of been rather strange to see Daenerys Targaryen clash with her if Tommen and her both stayed alive.
