A not so innocent rose
Margaery Tyrell is one of the important characters of the series Game Of Thrones, the famous television adaptation of George Martin’s novels: A Song Of Ice And Fire. The story takes place in a medieval fantasy world where several great families have long been vying for power and the throne, while in the far north of the continent of Westeros, the White Walkers are approaching without many people really paying attention. Margaery is the young daughter of the wealthy Tyrell family. In the first season, Cersei Lannister, the queen, arranges for the king to die during a hunting party because she fears that her friend Ned Stark will reveal to the king that his children are in fact the fruit of incest with his brother Jaime. The king’s two brothers, learning of this, each decide to leave the court to form an army and take the throne. The Tyrell family sides with Renly Baratheon, the younger brother, and Margaery marries Renly, even though he is homosexual. But when Renly dies at the hand of his brother Stannis, the Tyrell family changes sides and makes an alliance with the Lannisters when they are in turn attacked by Stannis. Margaery is then engaged to Joffrey, Cersei Lannister’s son. When he dies, she is betrothed to his younger brother Tommen. Although seemingly sweet and charming and rather benevolent, Margaery is very good at manipulating people to get what she wants, especially men. She will then come into conflict with Cersei for influence over young Tommen.
