Is Brienne the true heir to the throne?

Following Westerosi rules of succession, the one who kills the king gets to be the next king:

  • Robert killed Rhaegar and became king, so the Targaryens have no claim to the throne anymore
  • Robert died with no legitimate heir, so his next of keen inherited the throne, and for how much I despise him I have to recognise it’s Stannis
  • Cersei can’t be considered Robert’s next of keen since she cheated on her husband, who also happened to be the king, thus being executed for treachery following the law
  • All Stannis’ relatives died at his hands (both Renly and Shireen)
  • Brienne killed Stannis in the name of King Renly, who was already dead at the time


So… following what we gather being the first rule to get the right to sit on the Iron Throne, Brienne of Tarth is the legitimate Queen of the Seven Kingdoms.
