Why Bran Stark will be King

  • Published on Apr 29, 2019
  • Today I'm hitting you all with one of my most controversial (and probably unlikely) predictions. At the end of Game of Thrones, the Starks will be the new royal family, and the official ruler of Westeros will be the Three Eyed Raven himself. King Brandon Stark.
    Not the King we expect, but the one we deserve.
    EDIT: Please check the upload date before commenting. Or, watch my season 8 predictions video. I'd rather not keep responding to false/unsubstantiated accusations.

    *In response to accusations claiming that I saw plot leaks and then made this video.*
    I didn't, and I can prove it. Here is the freefolk thread documenting accurate plot leaks: www.reddit.com/r/FreeFolkNews/comments/bmfdv7/compilation_of_leakers_who_gave_previous_accurate/
    If you read through this thread, you will find that it compiles several plot leaks from over 3 different leakers. Now, the plot leak which actually mentioned that Bran would be King, was not posted until April 28th. But of course, if you know how leaks work, you'd know this one did not gain any attention until much later, because it didn't come from a reputable leaker, and it didn't actually predict anything correct until May 4th when it was confirmed by episode 4. In fact, non of these plot leaks, from the ones posted last December, to the afraidpart leaks posted last Summer, had received any attention by the community until episode 3 aired (on account of them having predicted Arya killing the NK and Lyanna Mormont's death). That was literally the night before I released this video. Before that, the afraidpart leaks (which again, did not mention Bran) were just one in a thousand self proclaimed leaks of which 99.9% turned out false.
    Now, if ya'll are honestly suspicious enough that you think I watched episode 3, went and found the April 28th leak before anyone else and before it had been confirmed in any way, and then immediately wrote this script and put together this video over night, then you're clearly a very paranoid individual and you don't have any idea know how much time these videos take. But, just to throw those suspicious folks a bone, *here is me predicting King Bran back on March 31st:* ruclip.com/video/yTskuAes73o/video.html
    So hopefully ya'll can stop making these same tired accusations and give me some peace lol.

      @YezenIRL the fact that the show mostly ended like this and you got a few things (extreme minor details) wrong let me know that you are active in the fandom and made a great prediction! That being said. Its a stupid ending. One im only willing to believe only of bran is the night king. But good intuition bud i liked the structure of your vid. And first short story or book you post i would like to read.

    I always wanted Westeros to just dissolve back into the Seven Kingdoms. That's the best outcome I thought could occur. A confederacy where the citizens governed themselves.

    Extremely close. Almost 87% ACCURATE! Very good intuition level. Some stuff was highly detailed and wrong (arya is not queen of the north; sansa is not defacto queen regent) but this was good friend. Hats off! Awesome video awesome edit.

    I also always knew he would be the king, at least since season 7. it has to be a stark, and its not jon (predictable af), and def not rickon/robb LUL

    Quick question: Do you think Eddard Stark would've actually made a good king had he lived or do you think who Ned Stark is & what he would've become has largely been overblown and romanticized since he died?

    I really hope you had not read or heard any leaked script or anything because I loved your reasoning in this. I didn't particularly love the idea of Bran being king when I watched the finale and was only ok with it because he is a Stark and I wanted a good end for them but your video has made me see so much more in this end. I thought Jon and Dany both losing the throne was quite poetic seeing how both ice and fire didn't get the throne and I think Bran also fits well in the poetic end.
    Still I'm a Danaerys fan forever 🖤

    The three-eyed raven is a true God. Omnipresent but not omnipotent. The religions in GOT ASOIF are toxic dividers, but a fairy tale ending; a benevolent God on the throne.

    “Bran should have the iron throne because he’s good at sitting” may as well have been the reasoning behind why they chose him. It would’ve made as much sense as the rest of the season which is none.

  • nividi kevichusa

    I said this to all my friends.. almost all the Starks n likely rulers have blood on their hands and are very bad at forgiving their enemies.The concept of reconciliation and forgiveness is almost absent in the series. Cept for Bran forgiving Jamie, and affirming Theon.It makes him Worthy to be a good King. Not power hungry, ambitious, fighter.

    • Nutty dishwasher
      Nutty dishwasher Month ago

      True, almost all cruel and wrathful characters (Cercei, Tywin, Daenerys, The Baratheon brothers, etc..) in this series died, while the forgiving ones (Bran, Sansa, Tyrion, Arya, Jon, Sam, Davos ) survived.

  • jeebus2121
    jeebus2121 Month ago

    You were correct, but I fear your explanation for why--which is sophisticated, steeped in the show's lore, and equals parts poetic/logical--is vastly more well thought out than the actual writers' process, where they probably just went "let's subvert expectations".

  • beanie0112

    My thing is that since the 3ER has taken over his mind and body Bran’s consciousness either 1) no longer exists, 2) has been pushed down into a “sunken place” where all he can do is helplessly witness the 3ER control him, or 3) is allowed to co-pilot his mind and body with the 3ER.
    If either 1) or 2) is the case could the now six (🤦‍♂️) kingdoms really trust such an entity to be king if it’s willing to do either of those things to Bran’s consciousness? 🤷‍♂️

    Your breakdown/analysis of the qualities it takes to rule/be powerful was pure genius! I had an epiphany while watching your video. Bran becoming the 3 eyed ravin can be compared to becoming enlightened. Losing one’s ego identity which is why him becoming the King and leading the people in goodness makes the most sense.
