The fifth in my series of character countdowns (11 days to go as the ravens flies) focuses on the regal rose herself – Margaery Tyrell. The pretty power player who plays the game with sugar and spice, leaving a sour taste in Cersei’s mouth. The seven kingdoms underestimate her at their peril.
1. THE QUEEN
Margaery sets out her mission to Littlefinger, one manipulator to another.
2. DEFENCE STRATEGY
Margaery wraps a sadist round her little finger
3. QUEEN OF HEARTS
She got the people cheering Joffrey? SORCERY!
4. THIRD TIME LUCKY
Child courtship… and cats
Spite with a smile – the moment the rose seals her eventual fate?
