Tommen Baratheon - Wikipedia
Tommen-Myrcella. Carrying forward the Lannister family legacy, the young actors (Nell Tiger Free & Dean Charles Chapman) who portrayed royal siblings on. Moreover, we all know Dean was dating one of his co-stars, but do they still age gap between Tommen Lannister and Margaery Tyrell, as the young Tommen and Myrcella were reportedly dating one another back in Aug 20, Dean-Charles Chapman, who plays Tommen Baratheon, and Nell Tiger Free, who stars as Myrcella Baratheon in the show's most recent.
The new 'Game of Thrones' dilemma for book fans. So who is next in line to the Iron Throne of Westeros on the show, presuming Tommen's death leads to a peaceful and legal transfer of power? The answer might surprise you. But buckle up, because we're going to need to do some serious time traveling through Westeros history.
Even in real life, royal lines of succession can be hard to grasp. First of all, it isn't simply about who is descended from whom. There are several hundred royals in Europe who have more right to sit on the throne of England than Queen Elizabeth II, for example, but they are barred by dint of being descended from the Stuarts, a line of ousted Catholic English kings.
Similarly, if the Baratheons died out, legally and politically speaking, you couldn't simply hand the Iron Throne back to Daenerys, daughter of the Targaryen king that King Robert Baratheon ousted. Once a new dynasty seizes a throne, there's no going back except by force.

And Dany's chances of doing that are looking pretty slim at the moment. Sorry Dany, Dragons don't count when it comes to the line of succession. HBO So to find out who would replace Tommen, we have to go through a convoluted Baratheon family tree, find out who married whom, and end up in another House altogether. But first, a side note: Yes, technically there is a son of Robert Baratheon still alive in the show.
His name is Gendry, the only one of Robert's bastards to survive Cersei's massacre. But he is still a bastard, and to ascend to the throne he'd have to have the current king legitimize him. That's hardly likely, of course, even though Gendry has Baratheon blood in him and Tommen secretly, sort of doesn't.
The air in King's Landing is thick with irony. Robert Baratheon King Robert and his lethal drinking horn.
He had three kids, officially and legally at least, with Queen Cersei. Joffrey and Myrcella are dead, leaving only Tommen — and if the prophecy Cersei received from a witch is to be believed, the other blond-haired kid isn't long for this world either. The Throne would then pass to Stannis Baratheon, if he weren't pushing up daisies near Winterfell, then his faithful daughter Shireen Baratheon, if she weren't in cinders, then his younger brother Renly Baratheon, if he weren't in an advanced state of decomposition post-shadow baby.
That exhausts this generation of Baratheons. And according to this unbelievably extensive Baratheon family treeyou have to go all the way back to Robert's great-great-great-great-grandfather to find anyone in his family who sired another line that survived.
A hundred and fifty years before Robert was even born, an aristocrat called Corwen Baratheon married a woman named Leyne and had six kids. One of them, Arion, was Robert's great-great-great grandfather. The next one down to have surviving kids was Elyanna, who married a Lord named Mathin. And who was Tytos' firstborn son? Tywin Lannister If you were still alive, you'd be here by now.
HBO Yep, that's right. The old puppet-string puller, Lannister Godfather and Hand of the King could have sat on the Iron Throne in his own right!
That is, if he hadn't ended up looking down the business end of Tyrion's crossbow while sitting on the commode. That being the case, however, his title of heir to the throne of Westeros passes to his firstborn son Jaime Lannister He's alive and intact!
Well, apart from that right hand. That's a lifetime post, one you don't simply leave, even if it is to become King.
Cersei may want him to rule, but we get the sense that Jaime's sense of honor wouldn't let him leave the Kingsguard even if the small council bent the rules for him.
Jaime was removed from the Kingsguard by Tommen in order to help the Freys capture Riverrun. In theory, that should make him Tommen's heir — which might explain why he didn't look too happy at Cersei's coronation. So if Jamie is passed over for the post, what about Tywin's second-born son?

Tyrion Lannister 'King Tyrion, first of his name' has a ring to it. HBO Though a peaceful transfer of power to the Imp would be one of the most delicious things we could ever witness in a future Game of Thrones, it's also less likely to happen than Jaime's ascendancy.
Your Boltons from your Baratheons? Your Jaime Lannisters from your Jorah Mormonts? Master Aemon died as Snow fought Walkers north of the Wall. Catelyn Stark was his one true love. By dint of the marriage he is now Lord Protector of the Vale and regards Sansa as an ally he can woo. His marriage to Margaery Tyrell was short-lasting,with dreadful Joffrey dispatched by poison before the wedding feast was completed.
Not that it did her any good. Shipped off to Dorne by her uncle Tyrion for an arranged marriage into House Martell she was poisoned by Ellaria Sand and the Sand Snakes as retribution for the death of Oberyn Martell.
A political marriage to Margaery of House Tyrell was intended to boost his claim to the throne — an ambition that came undone when Stannis and Melisandre send a shadow demon to kill him. In his later years Robert sank into gluttony and lechery and endured a heartless political marriage to Cersei Lannister. Robert died in a stag hunt, having been fed super-potent wine by Cersei.
He demonstrated courage and strategic skill in almost defeating the Lannisters at the Battle of the Blackwater and later toppled the Wildling King Beyond the Wall Mance Rayder. But burning his daughter Shireen was a sacrifice too far and, with his forces deserting him, he was defeated by the Boltons at Winterfell.
His indecision allowed the conflict between Cersei and the Sparrows spiral out of control. HBO The utterly loathsome Ramsay was the illegitimate product of a union between Roose Bolton not very likeable either and a peasant woman raped by Roose after she wed without his permission the husband he had hanged.
After killing his father, step mother and half-brother, he lost the Battle of the Bastards to Jon Snow and was fed by Sansa to his own, peckish hounds.
