Who is the Best King or Queen in Westeros?


Winter is here.

And with winter, comes the new Game of Thrones themed bracket and this year we are looking at rulers. Cottonmouth once said that Biggie once said that everybody wants to be the king and they were right. Over the run of the hit tv show Game of Thrones and the A Song of Ice and Fire series that the show is based on, more than a couple of characters have claimed their right to a throne, some more successfully than others. So we thought it would be fun to match up some of these characters in a bracket to determine once and for all who is the better king or queen.

We looked all throughout the history of Westeros in an attempt to find sixteen kings and queens. It was admittedly difficult at the end but we managed to assemble an all star cast of monarchs that have held or attempted to hold some kind of throne. We seeded the bracket based on their declaration date. A lot of those had to be estimated but we did our best. Here are the kings and queens we brought together.


1 The Night King vs 16 Cersei Lannister
2 Aegon Targaryen vs 15 Jon Snow
3 Aeris II Targaryen vs 14 Euron Greyjoy
4 Viserys III Targaryen vs 13 Tommen Baratheon
5 Robert Baratheon vs 12 Baylon Greyjoy
6 Mance Rayder vs 11 Stannis Baratheon
7 Daenerys Targaryen vs 10 Renley Baratheon
8 Joffrey Baratheon vs 9 Robb Stark


So here is where you come in. Vote on the first round on our polling page. You can look at the entire bracket here. We encourage you to share this bracket with friends or enemies of yours who love law enforcement or action movies. The results of the voting will be announced on the next Mad Bracket Status show, which we stream live on our Facebook page.
