You must not know European history
In the high fantasy genre I don’t think there have been many prominent roles of women as rulers.
GOT is a great feminist show. Period.
Queen Mary I, Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Mary Stuart, Queen Anne Stuart, Queen Victoria, and we're up to ruling Queen Elizabeth II. That's just British history. Vikings let their women rule and fight. Ever heard "Let them eat cake?" That was said by French Queen Marie-Antoinette. So ruling women is actually ancient. There are women rulers in the Bible which is among the oldest texts we have.
It in no way changes the status quo by showing women ruling!! You 52% don't know your history lessons!! Have you heard of Catherine the Great? Omg do some research before you answer! There's a female on the British throne right now!! Queen Elizabeth I was the product of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. She was a badass queen and was born a bastard. She never married and she kept her throne despite her cousin Mary Queen of Scots trying to take it from her. What the show is showing is a more accurate depiction of history.
