About This Quiz

Historically, men have always been the ones starring in all the action, while women were there to provide pleasure or to be rescued. Well, that's not the case with "Game of Thrones." While every woman in the series may not be a badass, they're all spectacular in their own right. 

Do you know the women of the North- Sansa, Ygritte, Arya, Gilly, and Catelyn? What about those who want the Iron Throne, like Daenerys and Cersei? Or the ones who love a good fight, like Brienne, Yara, Ellaria Sand and Meera? Or the ones who are expert strategists, like Lady Olenna and Margaery?

The women are way more than monarchs. They're also assassins, warriors, mothers, wives, witches, and leaders. They're the ones taking charge and leading the way for the men to follow. Have you watched the series enough, and taken enough notes to identify these women based on just one picture?

Please be warned that this quiz does contain spoilers. So if you don't want to know who died by poison, who was kidnapped by their uncle, who was banished by Jon Snow and who is supposedly pregnant, go binge watch the season quickly before you do this quiz. Good luck!
