What do we say to Monday Stress? Not today!🚫‼️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀
A week has passed since @gameofthrones ended and honestly still not over it. I mean, what do you do on Mondays then? 🤔 Coincidentally, I read an interesting reddit thread this morning about the possibility of Tyrion actually winning the game. It points out that when Cersei died, Tyrion actually became King on the Lannister throne since he was the last living descendant. Dany became Queen the moment those bells rang and when she died in the hands of Jon, who didn’t want the throne, and whose true lineage wasn’t discussed at the high council meeting, the odds went back to Tyrion. Even though this was the case, Tyrion was still charged with treason by Dany so his claim was disputed.
In the absence of a king, a High Council meeting of the great houses is formed to decide who the next king will be. During that said meeting, Tyrion was given the chance to create a new law that would be the final ruling for all the 6 kingdoms (since 1 withdrew) and was accepted by all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
You can only do that if you had the power because you won the game. He ended tradition when he declared Bran King and set forth that new law. According to Westeros, no one can create laws except for the King and the High Septum. The great houses are lent this authority to create their own judicial rulings, but can never truly change the rules without the crown’s consent. In this case since the high council was already formed (absence of King and throne disputed) and Tyrion’s suggestion was accepted, it’s safe to say that he had the ‘crown’s consent’, that he had played a special role in acceding the kingdoms’ peace. He may not have been king for long but he won the Game Of Thrones.
Do you agree? Who do you think should’ve won the Game Of Thrones?👑 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
