Game of Thrones' breakout star of Season 6 was undoubtedly Lyanna Mormont, the tiny Lady of Bear Island. We first meet Lyanna when Jon Snow is trying to drum up armies to fight Ramsay Bolton and take back Winterfell in the name of House Stark. Lyanna is still a child, but she rules her people with all the brusque chilliness of a true Northerner. She is not interested in flattery, she is fiercely loyal (but also careful and protective), and what humble armies she has to spare (62 men, to be exact), she is proud of. So it's no wonder that the internet is full of Lyanna Mormont memes from Game of Thrones.
After defeating Ramsay, Jon Snow is finally seated in the dining hall of Winterfell with those who stood by him in battle and all the Lords of the neighboring houses around him. But his men resent feasting with wildlings (ugh, racism against wildlings is so boring, you guys) and are tired of warring, even though winter is coming, and by winter, I mean White Walkers. Who should rally the troops except Lady effing Mormont, swooping in to remind all the ungrateful holdouts that House Stark supported them again and again, but still they refused to answer the call to battle.
"House Mormont remembers," she sagely cries out. "The North remembers. We know no king but the King in the North whose name is Stark. I don’t care if he’s a bastard. Ned Stark’s blood runs through his veins. He’s my king, from this day until his last day!"
And just like that, all the Lords declare Jon Snow their King in the North.
Let's take a look back at some of Lyanna's sassiest faces.
Then, of course, there's the faction of people holding out for a Lyanna political victory. Either in Westeros, or the United States, or England. Whichever.
Lady Mormont, forever.
