Top 5 Worst Rulers (Kings, Queens, etc..)
Cersei Lannister, Game of Thrones Series
I’m starting the book series finally this week but at least in her television portrayal…she is one bad woman! Complicated, incestuous, power-hungry, messed up…but a loving mother who will kill for her children (literally). She was scary to watch on tv and I loved to hate her. She is one of the worst because of her killer instinct but honestly I did admire how she smart she was to stay ahead of everyone wanting the throne. 🤷🏻♀️
Maven Calore, Red Queen Series
Another person with a messed up childhood, because of his MOTHER. UGH…her mind control powers made Maven unstable, which is unfortunate. He had so many personal demons but he was also so manipulative. 😒
Keris Veturia, Ember of Ashes Series
Keris Veturia…the Commandant. She’s cruel to her own son, hated him from the moment she knew she was pregnant because she was raped by his father! 😞 She is a hard woman with a hard heart.
Rat King Silan Veliant, The Bridge Kingdom
What father trains his daughters, pits them against each other (even if they die) and sends the survivor to infiltrate his enemies’ kingdom? The Rat King, that’s who. 😳
Queen Amarantha, ACOTAR
The queen that put the high lords of Prythian under a curse! They all wore masks and did her bidding until Feyre came along and endured the trials that almost killed her. I was happy to see Queen Amarantha defeated.
Who’s on your list?
