Warning: This article contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season 6, episode 7 - The Broken Man. Turn away now if you haven't seen it yet.
Strong female characters are nothing new to Game of Thrones, but this week's episode saw the debut of a new badass heroine who managed to steal the show from Jon Snow and become a fan favourite overnight.
Say hello to 10-year-old Lyanna Mormont. She's Lady of the small northern House Mormont on Bear Island, and has been responsible for its people ever since her mother died during Robb Stark's rebellion. Other fun facts - she's named after Jon and Sansa's Aunt Lyanna, she's the niece of Lord Commander Jeor Mormont, cousin to Jorah Mormont, and she's the one who denied Stannis soldiers when he was at Castle Black, saying: "Bear Island knows no king but the King in the North, whose name is Stark." Not bad for someone who should still be playing outside with other kids.
After that message, it's no surprise Jon, Sansa, and Davos turned up on her doorstep pleading for support, but if they thought it was going to be easy, Lady Mormont sure showed them otherwise. Played by the extremely talented Bella Ramsey (I know), she put the Starks to shame with her candid and honest assessment of their chances. While Jon was at a loss for words, the rest of us were falling in the love with Game of Thrones' newest heroine. Move over Dany, there's a new badass Queen in town and we want her on the Iron Throne...
After tonight's #GameofThrones, I might have to write "Lyanna Mormont" in on my ballot in November. #ImWithHerJune 6, 2016

Lyanna Mormont for Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. She would eat Tommen for breakfast. #GameofThronesJune 6, 2016
So, we're all rooting for Lyanna Mormont to take the Iron Throne now, right? https://t.co/QkPsiUZfBO pic.twitter.com/NpzPuzaS3RJune 6, 2016
Jon Snow should give Lyanna Mormont her house sword back. She's obviously a more capable leader than him. #GoTJune 6, 2016
"Lyanna Mormont is a 10-year-old girl and had showed more autorithy and strenght than the 90% of the adults in this show...."June 6, 2016
