Game of Thrones- Cersei Lannister
“If you call me your sister again and I will strangle you in your sleep.”
Cersei Lannister, wife of Robert Baratheon and the Queen of the seven kingdoms, mother of King and Queen Regent.
She is one of the badass women in the whole series. She is a widow and her children have died. She loves his brother, Jaime Lannister, and her late father, Tywin Lannister.
She has an incestuous relationship with Jaime and she never became a mother of Robert’s son.
According to series, she is not so good and has a bitch character but if you analyse her character closely, you won’t find any of her action without a solid reason.
In her childhood, she fancied Rhaegar Targaryen and she wanted to get married to him but that plan couldn’t go according to her. Then, when Robert became king after the downfall of Targaryens then she promised to Robert Baratheon by Tywin Lannister as a gift.
Cersei always knew that Tywin could see profit in this match that was why she was promised to him.
But, she fell in love (I should say lust) with Jaime already and didn’t want to leave him at any cost. She made his husband’s mind for making Jaime Lannister as a kingslayer.
“Tears are not the only weapon. The best one’s between your legs.”
She knows how to do deal with men and how to control their thirst. She used men like Lancel Lannister for her sexual needs.
When I watched her bedding with Lancel then first thing came in my mind that she was never in love with anyone except her children.
“Love is a weakness. Love no one but your children.”
When she got married to Robert, she wanted to make things better for her and him but after he first wedding night, Robert whispered Lyanna Stark name in her ear.
She knew she would never become Robert’s beloved. There was no fault of her if she took her brother Jaime into Kings landing to continue their relationship.
Robert even thrashed her in front of Ned Stark and always made fun of her in front of everyone by kissing and bedding with whores.
Audience accused her of killing Tyrell family including Margery, Mace, and Loras with High Sparrows but actually, Olenna Tyrell killed her son, Joeffry by poison.
Cersei never tried to kill Ned stark even she told Joeffry to stop the execution.
She never bothered to kill the bastards of Robert Baratheon but Joeffry was the one who ordered to kill each of them.
She never poisoned former king’s hand and lord of Vale, Jon Arryn, Lysa and lord Baelish did it and made Lannisters accused of this crime.
She treated Sansa very nicely and she also told Joeffry to treat her nicely and never slap or mistreat his lady.
She believes in the power of vengeance and she means it all the time.
Cersei doesn’t play with words, she plays with lives of people. She does always what she wants to do with people.
“Power is power.”
She is not bad, but she is the lonely and cold-heart woman. She has no one in her life after her children’s death.
She will do whatever she can do for making herself, queen.
