Game of Thrones
Margaery Tyrell is the only daughter of Lord Mace Tyrell, and granddaughter to Lady Olenna Redwyne-Tyrell. Margaery is described as a beautiful young woman, with a thin, but shapely body, big brown eyes, and soft curly-brown hair. She is the protégée of her grandmother, the Queen of Thorns, meaning she is very astute at playing the political side of the game of thrones. She is highly intelligent, and witty, as well as being a kind and generous person.
When Renly Baratheon made his claim for the Iron Throne, House Tyrell backed him, and sealed their support with a marriage between Renly and Margaery. Had Renly been able to march on King’s Landing and claim the crown, the Tyrells would have been the most powerful family in Westeros. However, shortly after their marriage, Renly was assassinated, making a widow of the young woman.
After Renly’s death, House Tyrell threw their support behind the Lannisters, and helped in the defense of King’s Landing against Stannis Baratheon. In order to seal their support for the Lannisters. Lord Mace Tyrell and Lord Tywin Lannister arranged the marriage of King Joffrey to Margaery.
In season 3, Margaery begins to garner favor with the smallfolk of King’s Landing, and in doing so, making her more popular than the Queen Regent, Cersei. Cersei’s jealousy constantly grows, as well as her distrust for Margaery and her grandmother, Lady Olenna.
