Game of Thrones is home to some of the baddest, fiercest and powerful women to grace the small screen. As the show hurtles into its seventh series, it’s the women, not the men, who are really shaking things up.
YouTube is also home to a number of brilliant and influential women. And while the ladies of YouTube might not be blowing each other up and sleeping with their siblings in their quest for power (as far as we know), some of them have a fair few attributes that makes us think of the queens of Westeros.
So without further ado, we present to you – If Female YouTubers Were Game Of Thrones Characters.
Cersei Lannister – Jenna Marbles
Cynical, no-nonsense, influential and fond of a glass of wine or six – Jenna Marbles has more than a few qualities in common with the current queen of the seven kingdoms. Both Jenna and Cersei have seen lords and ladies (or fellow creators) rise and fall during their tenure at the top of the game. Last time we checked, Jenna didn’t have a murderous streak – but who can say what the future holds?
Margaery Tyrell – Zoe Sugg
Beloved queen of the people, oozing with charm and determined to reign, Margery will forever reign in our hearts, even if she was (SPOILER ALERT) blown to smithereens at the end of last season. Like Zoe, Margaery ruled with kindness, cunning and a perfect understanding of what her audience wanted from her. Just one word of advice, Zoe – stay out of any suspicious looking Septs, okay?
Daenerys Targaryen – Liza Koshy
From 0 to 10 million subscribers in just two years, Liza Koshy’s rags to riches YouTube story bares a striking similarity to Daenerys Targaryen, who went from nothing to one of the fiercest queens not just in Westerns, but in the whole Game of Thrones world. Dany is hellbent on carving her way onto the iron throne – and if the last two years are anything to go by, Liza is in with a shot of doing the very same on YouTube.
Sansa Stark – Jackie Aina
Sansa and Jackie Aina are both able to carry themselves with the sort of dignity and regality that is expected of a queen, even when dealing with some serious dickheads at court. Headstrong and smart, Sansa has a keen sense of justice. Just like a certain makeup artist we know and love.
Arya Stark – Lilly Singh
Arya Stark – BAWSE. Lilly Singh – BAWSE. ‘Nuff said.
Melisandre – Trisha Paytas
BMelisandre and Trisha Paytas share a well-documented love of theatrics, and a history of putting their faith in the supernatural. Both are largely inexplicable.
Ygritte – Bunny Meyer
Both Bunny and Ygritte offer a plucky alternative to the ladies and princesses that dominate in their respective worlds. And, both are more than happy to let you know “you know nothing,” should you need to be told.
