I’m just going to put it out there – Brienne of Tarth, or rather Ser Brienne of Tarth, is a feminist icon.

Not only does she rise above being rejected – if not resented – for her pragmatic and perfectionist approach to fighting, simply for being a woman, but she fails to falter as one of the most loyal, honest and determined women in Westeros.

By the Seven Kingdoms’ patriarchal standards, she simply doesn’t fit in. And is regularly belittled by inferior swordsmen who feel they should remind her. Not that being underrated has got in the way of her defeating the likes Loras Tyrell or The Hound (two of the greatest fighters in the realm).

With the final episode of Game of Thrones season 8 right around the corner, here is everything you need to know about Brienne of Tarth’s story so far:

Who is Brienne of Tarth?

Brienne Tarth, commonly called Brienne of Tarth after her island home, is the only living child and heir of Lord Selwyn Tarth, Lord of Evenfall and head of House Tarth on the island of Tarth, located in the Narrow Sea off the coast of the Stormlands

By Westerosi standards she is unusually tall and muscular for a woman (therefore sometimes pejoratively referred to as Brienne the Beauty) but used her differences to her advantage by practicing martial activity from a young age.
