Ah, Cersei Lannister. She's basically the Game of Thrones equivalent of the wicked queen, only instead of bothering with apples, her chosen accessories are wine, blistering comebacks, and a zombified bodyguard that strikes fear in everyone's hearts. Cersei is one of the most fascinating characters on GOT, mainly because she continues to defy stereotypes and to fight against the men trying to pigeonhole her.
Here are the most fascinating facts about Cersei Lannister. Be forewarned, there are spoilers.
