*Too many spoilers. Read at your own risk*


Season 6 of HBO's most loved show 'Game of Thrones' is over and it has left us with a lot to look forward to. Apart from tying up smaller storylines and united houses, one thing that has become clear by the end of the season is that a woman will be the ultimate ruler of Westeros.

Woman power came in full force this season. From Arya's assassin training to Sansa's evolution and Daenerys winning the trust of long forgotten Dothraki tribe all over again, the season saw women getting the recognition that was long overdue. Let's take a look at the status of the powerful ladies, who will forge the map of Westeros in the coming season(s)

Daenerys Targaryen- The New Leader


Daenerys, the stormborn has set sails towards Westeros and looks like she's going to stop directly at the Iron Throne. The mother of dragons has named one of the wisest man in the seven kingdom as her counsel and Hand to the Queen. The woman knows what she's doing and takes advice that fits her own interest. Cutting ties with Daario worries her but doesn't stop her as now she is on the path of taking back what belongs to her. Tyrion or no Tyrion, the mother of dragons is the Queen

Sansa Stark- The Phoenix


Like a phoenix, Sansa has rose from the ashes and now eyes at ruling the Iron Throne. The Lady of Winterfell, as Jon puts it, has very strategically placed her only known kin, Jon as the King of the North. After giving Ramsay a befitting end, who knows what the former dainty diva is up to now. She's strong, she's seen the worst and she has loyalty of the entire north by her side. It wouldn't be a surprise if soon Sansa Stark make her way to King's Landing to pay Cersei Lannister her debts!

Arya Stark- The Masked Threat


After several fatal attacks and some useful tricks and training Arya is back where she belongs, in Westeros. The girl has not forgotten her list and just killed Walder Frey in the most brutal way possible. She brought down House Frey all on her own and with her needle. The once brave little Stark is a an vengeful assassin now. Beware Lannisters, their death is coming masked as anyone.

Cersei Lannister- A Master Queen


We all knew the evil side of Cercei but admire her for the pure love she shared with her children. somewhere down we pity her, but after last episode there will be nothing to pity about. The only humane side of Cersei has died alongside Tommen. The cold way she denied him the place near his siblings and grandfather was nearly monstrous. The Queen Mother had a stunning and surprising victory against everybody opposing her, including her own son. With no children left to be protected, there is nothing left for her but a throne of power and now she rules it. It'd be interesting to see what does she wants now.

Yara Greyjoy- The Iron Leader


She's clear, badass, and determined. Despite everything she lost, Yara accepted her brother Theon the way he is and instilled the feeling of worthiness in him. The woman who is the much deserved leader of the Iron Island , has allied herself with the right person right now. The little flirting with the mother of dragons in the previous episode proved that queen or not Yara knows to put her own interest first. We are rooting for this Iron born here and you should too! Strong leader to an otherwise weak but important kingdom.

These are the leaders we are eager to watch play against or alongside each other in the coming season. For now, the winds of winter has started in the north while a blasting fire of dragons make its way to the seven kingdoms.
