2. Tywin Lannister: The Hand of the King
Savior of the City, father of a queen, grandfather of a king, strategic genius, the richest man in Westeros: Lord Tywin has done it all, and now he has it all. Of course, to keep it, he'll have to keep his children and grandchildren from tearing each other's throats out, and that's a tall order. But making the move to King's Landing instead of ruling from afar signals a new, more hands-on approach from the new Hand, and there's little doubt that he's a commanding enough presence to pull it off, if anyone can.
