Joffrey Baratheon’s best (and worst) moments

Game of Thrones is set to return to our screens in 2014, and with Season Four of the show being one of the most hotly anticipated TV events of the year, it’s time to look back at some of the best (and worst) moments of the King of Westeros, Joffrey Baratheon.

His purely evil behaviour makes the King perhaps one of the most compelling villains in TV history, as audiences are constantly unsure of what he will do next. From torturing Sansa to running to his mother, Joffrey has entertained us for several years, and hopefully will continue to in 2014.

Killing our hero

If one thing was for sure, it was that Ned Stark was going to save the day. He could’ve done too, if it wasn’t for that pesky King. After promising to Sansa and his mother, Cersai, that he would send Ned to live out his life on The Wall, Joffrey instead committed Ned to death by beheading.

After Sansa witnessed her father die (luckily, Arya was protected from the sight), he then forced her to look at her fathers disembodied head on a spike – and so his torture of Sansa truly began.

Beating the whores

In the world of Game of Thrones, hiring a couple of prostitutes for your nephew’s birthday is considered a thoughtful and appropriate gift, so that is exactly what beloved character Tyrion did for Joffrey on his name day.

Unfortunately for the two ladies, Joffrey did not see the kindness in this gift, and went about forcing the prostitutes to torture one another for an unknown amount of time. While death didn’t ensue for any characters in this particular scene, it is one of the most brutal and difficult of the show, and was played perfectly by the actor Jack Gleeson.

The hand of the King

Tyrion, who is perhaps one of Game of Thrones most popular characters, is one of the few people in Westeros to actually speak out against the tyranny of Joffrey. When Joffrey causes his people to riot and attack the royal family, he is the first to point out Joffrey’s mistakes.

One of the most satisfying moments of the show was seeing Tyrion slap Joffrey for his irresponsible and arrogant behaviour. Thankfully, Round Games have created a game in which you can recreate this moment for yourself, and you can slap the King to your heart’s content!
