War, politics, betrayal, and in this instance, adultery. Game of Thrones explores a variety of serious themes and topics, and with its sixth season having just wrapped up, a team of experts at, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, looked back with a fine toothcomb on the show’s most adulterous characters these past six seasons, ranking them accordingly.

Several criteria were considered, including the socioeconomic and political implications of the affair, whether the participants were caught and the prominence of the persons involved.

The top 5 are as follows:

Number 5 – Renly Baratheon 

Occupation: former self-proclaimed Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm. Now deceased.
Had an affair with: Loras Tyrell
When: seasons one & two
Caught: yes, by his wife Margaery
Consequences: not much, Margaery didn’t seem to mind
What the experts say:

“A gay man forced into marrying a woman for the wrong reasons – you feel for Renly a little bit. However, he wasted very little time cheating on Margaery, and with her brother to boot.”
Number 4 – Shae

Occupation: former prostitute and handmaiden. Now deceased.
Had an affair with: Tywin Lannister
When: off-screen in season four
Caught: yes
Consequences: strangled to death by Tyrion Lannister
What the experts say:

“Given Tyrion’s enormous popularity among fans, many felt for him when he found out that Shae had had an affair with his father. It is his father’s involvement, followed by Shae’s brutal murder, that puts Shae at number 4.”

Number 3 – Lancel

Occupation: member of the religious movement, the Sparrows
Had an affair with: Cersei Lannister
When: seasons one & two
Caught: yes, by Tyrion Lannister, but he eventually confessed
Consequences: post-confession, he becomes a key member of the Sparrows, turning on Cersei and the Lannisters in the process.
What the experts say:

“The Lannisters certainly like to keep their affairs close to home, and Lancel is certainly no exception. It is the implications of his confession that cement his position as number three.”

Number 2 – Jaime Lannister

Occupation: Lord of Casterly Rock and head of House Lannister
Had an affair with: Cersei Lannister
When: season one
Caught: yes, by Bran Stark
Consequences: he pushed Bran out a window
What the experts say:

“Involved in an incestuous, adulterous relationship from the very first episode, and directly paralyzing one of the Stark children as a direct result, Jaime has earned second place.”
Number 1 – Cersei Lannister

Occupation: former Queen of the Seven Kingdoms
Had an affair with: Jaime Lannister and Lancel
When: seasons one and two
Caught: yes, her affair with Jaime was seen by Bran Stark, and both she and Lancel confessed about their affair
Consequences: performed a walk of atonement through the streets of King’s Landing as a result of her affair with Lancel
What the experts say:

“From episode one, Cersei was committing adultery. It was on-screen, it was kept within the family, and the implications were significant – from Bran’s paralysis to Cersei’s walk of atonement.

Cersei is quite easily the most adulterous character in the series, and we’d be stunned if that were to ever change.”
