Will Sansa Stark Sit on the Iron Throne? 'GOT' Fans Have Theories


To say that there are a lot of contenders for the Iron Throne is an understatement. It is likely that the final season of Game of Thrones will end with a new ruler of the Seven Kingdoms — and for many fans of the HBO series, that person is Sansa Stark.

There is no doubt that the daughter of Ned Stark has had one of the biggest transformations since we first met her in Winterfell in season 1. From being held captive in King's Landing to being forced to marry the worst villain in TV history, Ramsay Bolton, Sansa has morphed from a naive young girl to a fierce (and deadly) force to be reckoned with. 

Our girl has been through a LOT, and now that Sansa is back in Winterfell where she belongs, she has proven to have the leadership skills — and scheming – needed to be a queen. Sorry, Daenerys.

Many fans believe Sansa is the complete opposite of Cersei Lannister (the current Queen of the Seven Kingdoms) and the Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen — and that proves she will likely end up on top. 

"I keep being reminded of that quote by Tywin way earlier in the series, something like, 'A man who has to tell people he is the King is no true king.' Cersei and Dany insist they are the true rulers of the realm and wield their power to keep those below them in line," a fan theorized on reddit. "I don't see a huge difference between Cersei and Dany at this point, but Sansa is quietly becoming everything the two increasingly violent Queens are not. She's kind; she's diplomatic; she's pragmatic."
