For six seasons we have been seeing all kinds of family relationships. Some of them are very touching and others are disgusting and cruel. According to the final outcome, these are the worst family relationships in Game of Thrones.
According to Sam’s story, from the very beginning of the show we learned that his father gave him a choice- either to join the Night’s Watch or to have a riding accident. Much later, in season 6, we saw for ourselves how cruel Sam’s father was towards Sam and Gilly.
From the moment Ned brought Jon to Winterfell, Catelyn instantly started hating the boy. Although all those years she allowed Jon to stay with her family, Catelyn never truly accepted the boy as a part of the family.
Theon was taken from his family by the Starks, as a punishment and reminder of what happens when you mess with the Warden of the North. However, many years later Theon goes back to his father and instead of being happy, Balon Greyjoy pushes his son away, blaming him for becoming a Stark. Even later in the story, Balon never truly trusts his son and is not willing to sacrifice men to save Theon from Ramsay Bolton.
After coming back to the Iron Islands, Euron kills his brother Balon Greyjoy and claims the throne for himself. The people chose Euron over Yara, and his first decision as a king is to kill his own nephews. Unfortunately for Euron, Yara and Theon manage to escape before he makes the decision.
This sister relationship was once very strong, but it was ruined in the name of love and power. Lord Baelish, who loves Catelyn Stark since childhood, is actually Lady Lysa’s true love. To win his affection and love, Lysa betrays her Sister and the Stark family.
Vyserys desperately wants to get his home and his throne back. He even sacrifices his sister to be married against her own will and threatens her in many ways. Well, we all know how this ended.
All of his life Tyrion tries to be accepted by his father. He never truly felt his father’s love and affection. Tywin even told Tyrion the awful truth about his moment of weakness in the past- Tywin wanted to drown his dwarf baby boy but he decided to keep him because he was Lannister. We see how Tywing is treating Tyrion, and we witnessed that he was prepared to sentence his son to die. This resulted in Tyrion killing his father.
The royal incest that is not a big secret in the kingdom is between the brother and sister Lannister. Their incest resulted in having three children.
Even more disgusting incest in Game of Thrones is the one that Craster had with his daughters. He multiplies with his own daughters and what’s even worse is what he does to his sons.
The worst thing that a parent has done to his child in the show. Stannis and his wife sacrificed their daughter in order to win the war. We all know how the battle ended, the poor girl died in vain.
