HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is a show that prides itself on serving up the most unexpected twists. Allegiances change and loyalties are tested with each new development in the war for the Iron Throne. While Danerys Targaryen’s camp seems to enjoy a pretty solid roster of allies at the moment, there are fan theories that she will be betrayed by someone she trusts.

Tyrion Lannister

With his political experience and his understanding of how the Lannister family works, Tyrion has proven himself to be an invaluable adviser to Daenerys Targaryen. As her Hand of the Queen, he has given her sound advice even when she loses her temper and grows impatient.

In recent episodes, Daenerys showed signs of losing faith in Tyrion’s counsel when his battle plans cost her Yara Greyjoy’s fleet, as well as the Dornish and Tyrell armies. Against his advice, Daenerys also incinerated Randyll and Dickon Tarly in a show of force after a great victory.

Fan theories suggest that Tyrion will also begin to doubt if Daenerys is turning out to be the same as her father, the Mad King Aerys. Tyrion has been a loyal and faithful servant to Dany but with her penchant for violence, fans believe that he will later side with his brother and sister, believing that Cersei is the lesser evil between the two contenders for the Iron Throne.


Missandei is one of Daenerys’ most loyal advisers and confidantes.

If fan theories prove to be true, her betrayal could completely change the game and break the heart of the Mother of Dragons.

Elite Daily cited Reddit user Bisuboy’s suggestion that Missandei will not be betraying her Queen because of greed. She will do it out of love to save her beloved Grey Worm. He speculated that it was Missandei who provided the information to the Lannisters’ camp to keep Grey Worm safe from danger.

It can also be recalled that a prophecy once told Daenerys that she will be betrayed three times – once for blood, once for gold and once for love. Dany has been betrayed by Mirri Maz Duur in Season 1 when her son was sacrificed to return Khal Drogo to a catatonic state. Ser Jorah also once betrayed Daenerys by selling information about her to King Robert.

Missandei's betrayal because of love could be the end to this trio of betrayals.


Daenerys has been suspicious of Varys from the beginning but the Spider finally won the Queen’s trust with his emphatic statement about his love for Westeros. However, a report from Time recalled the episode where Varys had a talk with High Priestess Kinvara in Season 6.

In their conversation, it was suggested that Varys was also called upon by the Lord of Light to help His chosen one ascend to the Iron Throne. It was also suggested that Lord Varys will meet his end in doing so.

In his recent conversation with the Red Woman Melisandre, she referred to Varys’ death as well as her own. It is speculated that Varys will betray Daenerys to avoid his fate. With his shifting allegiances, fans believe that he may switch sides when it is most critical.
