Game of Thrones is rapidly approaching the end of its story. We are more than halfway through the penultimate season and with just six episodes planned for the eighth and final installment of the series there are many questions left unanswered. The biggest, who will win the Iron Throne?
There have been four rulers that have sat on the Iron Throne in seven seasons. The current monarch is Queen Cersei of House Lannister, first of her name. Cersei has 5/1 odds to still be Queen when it’s all said and done. However, Drogon torched the Lannister army in the last episode. Cersei’s days are numbered.
Dany (2/1) is the Mother of Dragons, which makes her a good bet to sit on the throne. With an army of Unsullied and a Dothraki horde she is the betting favorite.
The King in the North is preoccupied with the war to come against the White Walkers. We know as viewers that he is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen. If Jon Snow (11/4) can defeat the Night King he would have a strong claim to rule the Seven Kingdoms.
An interesting possibility is that no one sits on the Iron Throne (7/1). Ice zombies are intent of wiping out mankind, perhaps they succeed.
There is a chance another character, through force or cunning, wins the Iron Throne but it would be truly shocking if Dany or Jon were not victorious.
Who will win the Iron Throne?
|The Night King||16/1|
|Brienne of Tarth||60/1|
|Ser Davos Seaworth||80/1|
