10Jaime Lannister Sat On The Iron Throne Briefly
Jaime had the chance to take the Iron Throne for himself. In the show, we hear of how Ned found him with Aerys’ body, but in the books, a more detailed picture is painted. Jaime actually sat on the Iron Throne and that’s where Ned found him; contemplating whether to
name his father king.
He also even considered Viserys before deciding against it in case he was as mad as his father.
But in the end, he named no one and stepped off the throne when Ned arrived. Jaime has never really craved political power, so that makes total sense.
