10 GoT Characters Who Could Finish the Series on the Iron Throne

As the show has surpassed the books and the end is nigh, it is time to consider who could end up on the Iron Throne. This article is gender-inclusive, because whoever said a female won't be seated on that chair of swords when all is said and done? So with that out of the way, we can speculate on who will rule the show when it concludes. At the moment, there are probably more than 20 candidates, but we've narrowed the list down to the 10 most likely. Our analysis is made up by judging the character arcs that are being constructed by Mr. Martin, as well as taking into account the way season 6 is unfolding. No doubt many of these characters will die before season 8 episode 10 (the confirmed final episode), but for now, they remain hopeful of victory.

Six seasons in and we've only seen 3 kings: Robert, Joffrey and Tommen. That is one Baratheon and two Lannister spawns. But with so many characters gunning for the top job, Tommen's reign is sure to come to an end sooner rather than later. Will it be one of the highborn children? Will it be a name that has never been royal? Will the Iron Throne, and King's Landing for that matter, even be standing when the show concludes? In a prophecy, Cersei was told that her three children would die before her and she would die by her younger brother's hand. The show will include these scenes of death, so that rules out the lioness, but that leaves plenty of names to discuss. Who do you think it will be?

Word is that Jon is a Targaryen. He's come back from the dead, he commands the Wildlings and he knows of the threats that are coming over the wall. At some point, he will learn about his true parents and if R+L=J, then he easily has the biggest claim to the throne. Dany won't be happy, of course, but at least she will have a family member leading the country. Jon is the protagonist of the series, make no mistake. Robb didn't get a resurrection, Ned didn't get a resurrection and Stannis didn't get a resurrection. Fans cried foul over the stabbing of Jon. They want him to win the Game of Thrones. While it would be slightly predictable, this is an ending that makes sense. A giant battle of dragons and walkers, then another battle between men. The winner will sit on the chair, take the crown and rule in the final scene and when that happens, do you really want it to be anyone other than Jon?
