Game of Thrones' answer to Downton Abbey's Dowager Countess (just remember: the books that the show's based on came first), Lady Olenna is the real power behind the ambitious, super-rich Tyrell family. Known as the Queen of Thorns, her grandchildren include Lady Margaery, the up-and-comer who was married to slain pretender to the throne Renly Baratheon and is currently engaged to King Joffrey, and Ser Loras, a talented warrior who was secretly Renly's boyfriend.
