Take our quiz to find out which Game of Thrones character you truly identify with, and brush up on GoT knowledge as we prepare for Season 8!
Are you as psyched as we are for Game of Thronesto return for its final season? While we of course majorly heart beloved characters like Jon Snow and Tyrion (even The Hound and Jaime Lannister have had major redemption arcs), one of the best parts of GoT is its many badass female characters. From pint-sized assassin Arya Stark, to the honorable knight Brienne of Tarth, to acid-tongued power players like Cersei Lannister and Olenna Tyrell (the Queen of Thorns), women on Game of Thrones are multi-faceted (literally, in Arya’s case), imperfect, and dynamic.
As we were re-watching the series recently for the umpteenth time, we got to thinking about the key role motherhood plays on the show: Danaerys Targaryen calls herself “The Mother of Dragons”; Cersei insists she commits all of her heinous crimes to protect her children; in fact one of the show’s core mysteries is the true identity of Jon Snow’s mother. Since motherhood is kinda something we’re all about here at Sassy Mama, and because who doesn’t love a good Game of Thrones quiz, we’ve come up with our own!

Which Game of Thrones Mama Are You?
You're Cersei Lannister
You know what you want and will typically stop at nothing to get it; in some ways, this is an admirable quality to demonstrate for your children, though you have a tendency to take things a bit too far. You run parent committee meetings with an iron fist, and all the moms envy the fact you’re still a natural blonde even as you barrel into middle age…
You're Danaerys Targaryen (The Mother of Dragons)
You would do absolutely anything for your children, but you also have an uncanny knack for putting them in risky situations…there was that time they got kidnapped, and people just won’t stop hurling spears at them. When it comes to men, you definitely have a thing for rugged hero-types.
You're Olenna Tyrell (The Queen of Thorns)
You’ve been around the block a time or two and nothing fazes you at this point, least of all motherhood. No one’s better at getting what she wants – and enjoying the finer things in life – than you, but eventually all those games and schemes just might catch up with you.
Sure, some might refer to the child you birthed as a “demon”, but you’re proud of what he’s achieved. You love relaxing with a hot bath and a nice glass of wine, and recognize the power of statement accessories. And daaamn, mama, you look good for your age!
You're Catelyn Stark
You're so focused on your kids that you tend to get a little carried away and can’t see the forest for the trees. Like when you kidnapped the guy you erroneously thought had attacked your child (oops!); or when you freed your family’s mortal enemy on the off chance he might help your daughters. Maybe it's time to step back and focus on yourself for a bit. Try staying out of the Frey - oops! we mean fray - for your own good, mama.
You’re so protective of your child that you haven’t let him out of your sight for the first four years of his life – in fact, you’ve barely put him down. You’re also a big believer in reading to him – books are basically his only toy to this point. Don't forget to practice some self-care, mama!
