    How did Cersei end up queen exactly? She doesn't have a claim to it, does she? Or is just a case of "well, no one else is here and I'm the queen mother so it's mine?"
    Yeah, pretty much. She was Queen before Margaery was crowned...and there are no men at this point to take the throne so she's declared herself Queen.

    Going by the rules of succession in royal families it makes sense for Cersei to be queen.

    Given no Baratheon kids remain her being the wife of Robert would be next in line

    Oh yes! I totally forgot about him! He's in fact the ONLY real heir.

    In the books there are meant to be dozens of 'Robert's ba$tards' floating around, they did kill the ones they could find in an earlier season but it's probably fair to assume there's more out there.

    Gendry is also illegitimate... And yes, the books refer to heaps of them.

    How does a ba$tard become legitimate again? Ramsay was by his father, but can it be done without the father?

    Could Dany do it?

    As an aside, I read a theory that Torrmund could be Lady Mormonts father. Apparently in one of the books (not sure which one, I'm not that far) he claims to have bedded a she-bear. The Mormonts are all referred to as bears in the books, and there is no mention of who fathered her and her (now deceased) sisters. That would be an awesome development IMO.

    Only a king/queen can legitimise a ba$tard. It was either Tommen or Joffrey who signed off on Ramsay being legitimised.

    So Dany could, but only those who see her as the righful queen would acknowledge it. Stannis offered to legitimise Jon when he was proclaiming himself as the righful king, but only goes followers wouldhave acknowledged that.

    Apparently it goes right back to great grandfathers... Since there are no more Baratheons it goes all the way back and the closest blood line to lBaratheons are the Lannisters.... Technically Jamie should get it since Tommen removed him from the Kings guard....
