Game of Thrones

Hello Westorousi People….

Valãr Morghülis..!!

There are two kinds of people in the world…those who hate Joffrey and those who don’t watch GoT. As all of us know that Joffrey was never really a Baratheon but a Lannister, this was known to him as well. Although, he loved his father. This statement has very less evidences in support but he did love Robert Baratheon as a father…at least for his own sake of being a Crown Prince and a would be King. When Ned Stark plotted against him, his mother was smart enough to defend Joffrey and seize Ned, but Joffrey wasn’t smart as he beheaded Ned and invited many wars at doorstep. Even in Season 2 Episode 6, Tyrion, his uncle and Hand of the King, slapped him saying “A Vicious Idiot King.” For all we are impressed, is Joffrey was a cruel, selfish but idiot King.

But very few have gone through the aspect of Joffery which I’m going to tell. He had a vision for his own reign. He had it as a King should have. Let me give you an example, in Season 1 Episode 3, when he used to be Crown Prince, he suggests Cersei, his Mother and the Queen, that an army trained by soldiers should be appointed to the Crown. He was of opinion that the Northerners have been given too much power. Someone loyal to the Crown should be given the charge of the North as Warden of the North. Did you notice what Tywin Lannister, his grandfather and subsequent Hand of the King did in Season 3 to end the Northern rebellion…? He plotted with Roose Bolton to Kill the Stark family in return of making Roose Warden of the North. Joffrey suggested this in Season 1….!!

If you ever notice Tommen, his younger brother, when became of the same age as was Joffrey in Season 1 and 2, all he wanted to do was to have his Queen Margaery in his bed. He was mad in love with her. Joffrey, on the other hand, enjoyed torturing and humiliating people. He was romantic with Margaery at times but was never mad for her. He had a vision for his own reign. He wanted to rule cruelly. He wanted to have everyone to his feet. Alas, there was Sansa who can expose him to Lady Olenna, he couldn’t.

In Season 2 Episode 1, Joffrey rudely asks Cersei if Robert has any children from prostitutes. In the same discussion, we came to know that Joffrey was aware of his real biological father. He has a plan for strengthening his claim to the throne. Oh wait, in the scene, he says “It’s not claim, the throne is mine.” He then orders to kill all the bastard sons of Robert Baratheon. Had Cersei even thought this…? Joffrey had a vision for his reign.

But he remained an idiot though, thus got killed. His death was celebrated amongst fans. His brutality as a villain stayed with us.

Next villain will be Ramsay Bolton….!!

Warm Regards,
