If the King isn’t feared, he is powerless. If you are to be a strong queen, you must cultivate love and respect, yes, but your subjects must fear you.[to Rhaenyra]
Since I can’t touch the king, I’m gonna take his queen, his knights, his rooks… I’m knocking all his pieces off the board.
I find myself in a difficult position. I am a Queen and a wife. And to be a Queen I must rule. Yet, to be a wife, it seems I must submit.
