‘Game of Thrones’ Finale: Here’s Who Won the Iron Throne
Monday, 20 May 2019 (Warning: This post contains major spoilers for the series finale of “Game of Thrones”)
Winter has come and gone and now we finally know who holds the Iron Throne following Sunday’s series finale of “Game of Thrones.”
Though many tried to conquer Westeros over the course of “GoT’s” eight-season run, the 1-hour, 20-minute final installment of David Benioff and Dan “D.B.” Weiss’ HBO fantasy epic revealed that Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) rules the Seven Kingdoms at the end of the show. And he was selected via a vote!
Fans have been waiting to see who would win the coveted-sword-covered chair for almost a decade — and even longer, if we’re counting those who read George R.R. Martin’s currently unfinished “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series — so the question to this answer was inarguably the biggest going into the final episode of the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones.”

And Martin has previously said that in his talks with Weiss and Benioff, he detailed how he planned to end his tale, which means this reveal is likely the exact same one fans can expect to see from the author, if he ever finishes the final two books in the series: ‘The Winds of Winter” and “A Dream of Spring.”
However, Martin has also made it very clear he’s not completed either book yet, so there is always a chance he could change his ending now.
