You may not love her, but you can’t deny that Cersei Lannister doesn’t make things interesting on Game of Thrones. Let’s break down 25 reasons why.

Sometimes, it’s good to be bad. And Cersei Lannister is pretty bad on Game of Thrones. There’s no way she falls into the protagonist category, but she is a major character nevertheless, and she has developed into a massive antagonist as season 8 continues.

Get used to calling her Cersei, the First of her Name. You thought she was bad before? Now she has the Iron Throne.

After season 6, though, it feels more appropriate than ever to count down 25 reasons to love...or at least find interesting…one Cersei Lannister. Who knows, you may find you like her more than you thought after reading through this countdown of some of her best moments, her positive qualities (yes, even Cersei has them), and her character.

If it isn’t clear, this list will cover every single season of Game of Thrones, including season 8. For those who aren’t caught up yet, be warned that spoilers do abound. That done, let’s get to talking about the Lioness of Lannister.
