Game of Thrones twist proves Daenerys was always ‘most evil’ and could never win

The fate of Daenerys Targaryon in Game of Thrones can be found in JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and it shows she was always the most evil character.

While it was often depicted that the Night King was the epitome of evil or Cersei Lannister was the one to stop, it turns out that Daenerys was the most evil of them all and she was always destined to die in her pursuit of power.

The Express has reported that George RR Martin 'lifted' the idea from Lord of the Rings, in one of many times the two stories coincide.

The Night King was the product of the Children of the Forest and did what he was programmed to do.

Cersei was the product of her upbringing but Daenerys was always filled with the desire to rule over everyone, no matter the cost.

Fans have pointed at how the Iron Throne is ultimately the most evil thing in Westeros, much like the One Ring and is the reason why Drogon had to destroy it by melting it down, very much like the One Ring being sent into the fires of Mount Doom.

How Daenerys looked to win the Iron Throne was her ultimate downfall, especially what she was prepared to do to take it.

She declared: "I will take what is mine, with fire and blood!"

Taking the throne with force and bloodshed was her undoing and eventually sealed her fate.

The Express has compared the Game of Thrones storyline with that in the Lord of the Rings, when Frodo offers Galadriel the ring.

It is said: "In place of the Dark Lord you will set up a Queen. And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain! Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!"

While Daenerys would do all she could to win the Iron Throne, Jon Snow was saved by his constant denial of his right to be the ultimate ruler.

In Lord of the Rings, Boromir wants the One Ring 'to help him become a great leader' and he hopes it will make him 'powerful enough to save his people and put the world right'.

This echoes Daenerys' thoughts and Boromir perished much in the same way that the Queen of Dragons did.

Tolkien revealed in letters that the pursuit of power was an important part of his story, very much like the narrative of Game of Thrones.

He wrote: "It was part of the essential deceit of the Ring to fill minds with imaginations of supreme power. But this the Great (Galadriel, Elrond and the Council of the Wise) had well considered and had rejected."

However good the intentions of Daenerys in her mind, she could never overcome the urge for over ruling power and it cost her life and Tolkien's books pointed to this fate back in the 50s, when they were published.

Fans have said that George RR Martin had so many other similarities with Lord of the Rings, it is little surprise that Daenerys fate could be found in the book as well.
