Datepalm Posted June 17, 2010 Share Posted June 17, 2010 Where did Cersei's irrational hatred towards the Tyrells come from? I was reading the scene where Tommen is jousting and it seems a bit odd.theres the bit about being supplanted by a younger and fairer queen, for one, for which Margaery is a shoe-in, to explain the enmity on a personal level. They're also a fairly close and relatively loving family with a markedly different court culture from the Lannister family dysfunctionality and heirarchism and isolationism in terms of ladies in waiting, retainers, lackeys and so on, which probably also annoys her. And they're clear political rivals - admittedly their power is from marrying into the ruling family, but once they're in, they want the regency and the informal family influence, which is exactly the only position left to her to draw power from.
