Game of Thrones poll: Who will win the Iron Throne?

The battle for the Iron Throne continues - but who will be winner?

By Jackie Bell

The new series of Game of Thrones is set to premiere on July 17 and with many characters holding the potential to be ruler of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, it's anyone's guess as to who will ultimately win the Throne.

Who are the top contenders? (Warning: Spoilers)

Jon Snow:

Game of Thrones series 7 will premiere in July.

Introduced at the bastard son of Ned Stark, Jon Snow's true parentage has provided many twists and fan theories as the battle for the Iron Throne continues.

And while 'R+L=J' gives him a legitimate claim to the throne - will he actually succeed?

Daenerys Targaryen

Game of Thrones series 7 will premiere in July.

Daenerys has been seeking to return the Iron Throne to the Targaryen name since season one and with the ace up her sleeve that is the dragons, she seems to have a pretty good chance.

But as all Game of Thrones fans will know, nothing is certain in the Kingdoms of Westeros.

Petyr Baelish (Littlefinger)

Game of Thrones series 7 will premiere in July.

While others have a legitimate claim on the Throne, Petyr Baelish just has pure ambition - and lots of it.

He has orchestrated more than one plot with the aim of getting his way in the past, so we can't imagine the small feat of sitting on the Iron Throne should be a bother to him.

Cersei Lannister

Game of Thrones series 7 will premiere in July.

Cersei currently rules Westeros thanks to a maze of succession, and while she might not have planned to find herself in this position, she certainly will not let the Throne leave Lannister hands.

Unfortunately for her, she's got a lot of enemies who want to take her spot but will she be able to hold on tight?
