Watch: An In-Depth Analysis On Why Daenerys Is Actually Unfit To Be a Ruler

Author Thumbnail BY Bayani Miguel Acebedo - July 16, 2017

With Game of Thrones season 7 premiering tonight, a lot of people are preparing themselves to come back to the Kingdom of Westeros. Wisecrack, however, delves into the Philosophy of Daenerys Targaryen and tries to see if Danny really is fit to be the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms.

Wisecrack tries to run Dany through famous philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli’s standards on what it takes to be a good ruler, and it seems that she gets low scores on every category. Though Dany may be genuinely concerned about the welfare of her people, she somehow doesn’t know how to manage them after she has “saved” them. Like Daario Naharis says, Danny is not a ruler, she is a conqueror.

What’s more, Dany is unwilling to compromise, which led to the formation of the Sons of the Harpy. I actually think that this will lead to her maturity as a queen, but as of now, all Dany really does is throw her dragons at people.

It’s a very interesting video, and it seems that Wisecrack is teasing that they’ll be covering the Philosophy of the rest of the potential rulers of Westeros i.e., Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister. I know he’s already on Dany’s side, but I would also like to see the Philosophy behind everyone’s favorite character, Tyrion.
