18 Badass Facts About Major Female Character from Game of Thrones

1Unella

You might remember Unella from Cersei’s walk of shame; she was the one ringing the bell and yelling “Shame!” so she was kind of hard to miss. You might not know, however, that Unella is also a member of the Most Devout, who elect the High Septon.


2Lyanna Mormont

Lyanna Mormont is only 10-year-old, and yet she has already stood up to Stannis and was the first in the new landscape of the North to declare for a Stark.


3Cersei Lannister

Despite her renowned beauty, Cersei Lannister was rejected as a bride for both Rhaegar and Viserys Targaryen. Robert Baratheon didn’t want her at first either, and even accidentally called her Lyanna on their wedding night.


4Lady Stoneheart

In the books, the dead Catelyn Stark is brought back as a vengeful zombie named Lady Stoneheart, a fearsome being who kills anyone associated with the Red Wedding. Because Catelyn’s throat was slit during the Red Wedding, Lady Stoneheart is unable to speak.


5Game of Thrones phrase

The phrase “Game of Thrones” is said only once on screen, and the speaker is Cersei Lannister. “When you play the game of thrones,” she says, “you either win or you die.”


6Margaery Tyrell

Margaery Tyrell once told Littlefinger that she wanted to be the queen, not just a queen. And she was. Three times in fact. The socially mobile royal became the queen of Kings Renly Baratheon, Joffrey Baratheon, and Tommen Baratheon.


7Lysa Arryn

Lysa Arryn and her sister Catelyn Stark used to kiss their father’s ward, Littlefinger, for practice when they were children. They also once made mud cakes for him, and he was sick for a week after eating them.

8Nymeria

Nymeria is long dead when the TV series starts, but she was a revered warrior queen who led the Rhoynar refugees and founded one of the seven kingdoms–a unified Dorne. Arya Stark is so inspired by Nymeria, she names her direwolf after her.


9Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Targaryen, famous for her long silver hair in the TV series, is actually bald for much of the book series. Her hair was burnt off along with her clothes when she walked into Khal Drogo’s funeral pyre.


10Obara Sand

Unlike some of her other fellow Sand Snakes (like Nymeria Sand), Obara Sand is not of noble birth; in the books, her mother is a prostitute.
