Game of Thrones fans point out that Tyrion Lannister was the ‘real king’ – and viewers didn’t even notice
GAME Of Thrones fans have pointed out that Tyrion Lannister was the ‘real king’ – and viewers didn’t even notice.
Desperate fans who have begged for a different ending to the fantasy epic drama and have claimed that Tyrion, played by Peter Dinklage, should have been enthroned as the last remaining Lannister alive.
Bran Stark became ruler instead of show favourites Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow and Sansa Stark.
Daenerys was murdered by Jon, who didn’t want the job, while Sansa was never even nominated.
But fans on reddit have put forward the theory that Tyrion was the only logical choice.
One person surmised: “Cersei was Queen, Dany the usurper was dead. Jon, her killer didn’t want it.

They added: “Guess what that means f*****s?
“Tyrion was the next family member, by blood, to the throne.
“That’s why they let him pick the next king, and make the ruling that the throne would no longer be passed by blood.”
Viewers were left devastated by the ending earlier this week when a dramatic twist saw the Three Eyed Raven nab the throne.
But he only had six kingdoms after the North was given independence.

And fans were stunned to see Jon kill his beloved Daenerys to halt her deranged killing spree.
After putting a knife through her heart, Jon laid her on the ground with her heartbroken dragon, Drogon, weeping over his mother’s dead body.
One fan tweeted: “We really waited 8 seasons for bran to be on the throne. Thanks for the laugh now give us the real ending please.”
Jon’s subsequent exile to Castle Black and emotional farewell with the rest of the Stark family brought up a lot of questions about the way his story was ended.

But he was reunited with his beloved direwolf Ghost as he began his new life away with the Wildlings.
The final moments of the show also saw the different Starks preparing for their new lives.
Meanwhile, Arya was left exploring lands out West, Sansa was the Queen of the North and Jon was seen travelling beyond the wall with Tormund and the rest of the Wildlings.
