The Kingsguard's armor?

Recommended Posts

Perhaps it's brought up before, but I haven't seen anthing about it. I noticed today, that not only Gregor, but all the kingsguards, have new armor. It's not silver/gold anymore, but rather black/dark grey/silver. Has this been the case since the last episode of season 6

Why?

Based on Sir Arthur Dayne and Sir Gerold Hightower, Kingsguard armor tends to change with the Dynasty. Silver for Targaryen, gold for Baratheon, black for Lannister. Silver has time and again been associated with the Targaryens (just look at Tyrion's Hand of the Queen broach). Cersei seems to have chosen black to be her aesthetic, and had the Kingsguard armor to match.

Just a little not under the Targaryens and Baratheons the cloaks and armor were white with silver breastplates.  Cersei loathed Robert and she wanted to distance herself from everything Targaryen it seem so adorning her queensguard in all Black would be a way to show the people that this is her rule entirely she is sweeping away the old dynasties and starting a new one.
