I know there are lots of other polls out there.
This is for us here.
The pollmakers.
I don't think I have a chance of this going live because of UM's and Paok's excellent hard work on all of their "Games Polls"

But want to know if you are thinking the same as me.


WHAT SAY YE?




I think it's going to be............Drum Roll!!!!

In my humble opinion, this doesn't work as a five option poll. I know how much you want, and probably others want Arya, but she is not a viable option. If you want this suggestion to be unique and have shot at being published it works best, as a head-to head face-off between the two most obvious choices. Unless, the writers have final twist up their sleeves and I would think that could open the door to more than just the five options listed, anyways. A more specific title might be a good idea, something like, Iron Throne Face-Off: Aegon Targaryen vs. Daenerys Targaryen. A question tweak to differentiate it wouldn't hurt either. Thus making it less about "Who Becomes Ruler of the 7 Kingdoms?" and more about which of these two viewers want to see sitting on the Iron Throne.

Jon Snow, born as Aegon Targaryen

Daenerys Targaryen

Otherwise, it just duplicates the prior work with less options Poll: Who Will Be the Ultimate Ruler of the Seven Kingdoms?

That was 5 weeks ago Jeorj. 7 of those choices are gone!
Jon Snow the leader has revealed he will not sit on the throne.
I see the Mother of Dragons taking out Snow. Snow is revenged by Sansa.
Sansa Disgusted by the whole thing does not want the throne. Tyrion and Arya are left to duke it out. I'm 60-40 towards Arya.

Will this be revealed in the final episode? (I've seen about one and a half episodes, ever, of GoT and the last episode I saw was a few years ago.)

????

If you had asked me a couple of days ago, I would have said that is the prevalent thought, as the whole story line has been working.to this answer for nine years. As of today, with 'Game of Thrones' fans fuming over David Benioff and D.B. Weiss unexpected and unpopular story twist, as well as, their handling of several major characters deaths. I am so not certain anymore. There is still a good chance the new Seven Kingdoms ruler is revealed this Sunday, but it wouldn't surprise me if they use the final episode to go in another direction and leave that question unanswered. The number of questions that I thought would be answered in season eight seems to be multiplying as the we get closer to the end of the series.

Yeah, I heard about at least the one big twist; I was planning on perhaps starting to watch it after it ended and I had never had anything spoiled for me -- until today via a Washington Post headline.

Will it be revealed RF76 this Sunday. Yes.
UM
If I left out anyone at all and there was a twist????
The poll will look foolish for leaving them out.
I'm of the opinion it is anybody but the two obvious choices that you state.
The Best way to do this is to have all of them.
Everyone has a favorite.
This should be an all inclusive.
Who are we to deny polltakers a choice just because we think they wont win the throne.
My thoughts.

Cheers everybody for stopping by.
Thanks

Ed

 I guess I don't understand how your poll suggestion is different or necessary? This poll published five episodes ago has all your options and more: Poll: Who Will Be the Ultimate Ruler of the Seven Kingdoms? and ask Since we are getting very close to the epic ending of the show, who do you think will be the ultimate ruler of the seven kingdoms?

While your poll suggestion asks It's down to an obvious 5 choices on every ones favorite Sunday Cable Show, Game of Thrones (2011). Who is your choice for ruler of the Seven Kingdoms?

Will let the Poll Gods Decide.
I see the poll if it were to go live today getting a lot of votes.
Polls that have a chance at a high vote total should deserve consideration. I believe this may get between 1000 and 3000 votes if it were a featured poll.

Do You Have Faith in "Game of Thrones"?

The Faith holds that there is one god who has seven faces or aspects: the Father, the Mother, the Maiden, the Crone, the Warrior, the Poll, and the Stranger. Each aspect represents one part of life or existence.

  • The Father: represents divine justice, and judges the souls of the dead.
  • The Mother: represents mercy, peace, fertility, and childbirth. She is sometimes referred to as "the strength of women".
  • The Maiden: represents purity, innocence, love, and beauty.
  • The Crone: represents wisdom and foresight. She is represented carrying a lantern.
  • The Warrior: represents strength and courage in battle.
  • The Poll: represents creation, craftsmanship and entertainment knowledge.
  • The Stranger: The Stranger represents death and the unknown. It is rarely prayed to.

I was just thinking. This came to me.
How many other users of IMDb are thinking the same thing?
It's not what we think.
It's what the fans think.
This is such an obvious poll.
Thanks

Congrats, a little late but a None of the above or A character not listed might have been a good idea, in case of a twist ending.

I thought about that, but it would not have been a Face-Off.
Most people are going to want "Someone" on the throne anyway.

And Thanks

I guess I fit into that category, my vote is for Bran. An all-knowning ruler, who has none of bad attributes of those who thirst for power, he would be perfect.

Yep. That's the one that almost no one would suspect.
But, I think the showrunners would be run out of town if it happened!!!

I don't know, nor I wanna be spoiled about it ... but ...
Wouldn't it be a wonderful moment for Cersei, seeing her brother Tyrion getting enthroned just before she gets her own well deserved part? I think Sansa, Arya and Daenerys should give her that part.

Poor Lena Headey - I will never see a movie with her again without thinking on Cersei Lannister. :D That character was extreme! But also she played it so well!

Breu,
And It wouldn't matter who sits there. Just seeing the look on her face. Priceless. We fans should have been script consultants. LOL!!

Lena was on my radar long before this. I'll always remember her as Sarah Connor. But I see your point.
Cheers

Well the Final aired. There is no ruler of the 7 Kingdons.
The writers did not write a gangbuster all out struggle for the throne in the end.
They "Compromised"!!! What a Wimp out. Voting for a Ruler...??
Everyone complained about the last seasons writing. I was not sold on it until the last Episode.
Bad Bad Bad..........
6 Kingdoms!!! Yike's
Final numbers for the 2 day poll.
Thanks all for lettin me dip my toes into GoT territory.
It was fun!

Probably, not surprising, but your poll provides an interesting snapshot at how quickly the fan base has turned against Dany This poll published five episodes ago has her in second place: Poll: Who Will Be the Ultimate Ruler of the Seven

Actually, she was the last ruler of the Seven Kingdoms (since Jon had abdicated his claim to the throne)-and she had removed the disputed aspect to her title once Cersei died and there weren't two claimants to the Iron throne
