In Game of Thrones season 5 premiere “The Wars to Come”, we saw a flashback. In that flashback we saw young Cersei Lannister visits a fortune teller names Maggy the Frog. Maggy gave Cersei a prediction about her future:
CERSEI: “I’ve been promised to the Prince. When will we marry?”
MAGGY: “You’ll never wed the prince; you’ll wed the king.”
CERSEI: “But I will be queen?”
MAGGY: “Oh yes, you’ll be queen…for a time. Then comes another. Younger, more beautiful, to cast you down and take all you hold dear.”
CERSEI: “Will the King and I have children?”
MAGGY: “The King will have 20 children, and you will have three…Gold will be their crowns; gold their shrouds.”
This scene was adapted from Cersei’s memories in A Feast for Crows, the fourth of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels.
There is a little detail which was left out in the show which makes this theory. In the books, A Feast for Crows to be exact, Maggy goes on to tell Cersei :
“When your tears have drowned you, the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.”
In case you don’t know already, “valonqar” means “little brother,” in High Valyrian.
Many have wondered for years to whom the prophecy refers.
Is it Tyrion, who is both younger than Cersei and literally little? Is it Jamie, who was born mere minutes after her? Or is someone else’s little brother?
However, a redditor now says that our deductions might be a bit too obvious.
