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.
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]
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.
