Motivation: He’s been mistreated constantly since he first turned up as a drunken terrible knight early in season 2 episode “The North Remembers”. As the kings fool he has been humiliated and abused constantly, perhaps the kings taken it too far and pushed him over the edge.
Likelihood: Absolutely not happening, let’s be honest he’s about as much chance of orchestrating this Joffrey has of rising from the dead…
Motivation: The Tyrells have many a motivation to want the dreaded King killed, Olenna continually displays disgust at Joffrey’s disrespect for his people and those closest to him such as his uncle Tyrion. As keen supporters and believers in the honesty and honour of the Starks they have been seen to dissapprove of the beheading of Ned Stark and the tactless murder of Robb and Caitlin Stark at the ‘Red Wedding’. Olenna is seen to speak to Sansa suggesting “No man should die at his own wedding” but perhaps that doesn’t carry over to one she would deem more of a ‘Monster’. The Tyrells including Loras and Margaery all display disgust as Joffrey’s ‘War of the five kings’ is reenacted by dwarves.
Likelihood: Clearly the family with the most power and the most to gain from Joffrey’s death. The Tyrells no doubt have all the essential connections to orchestrate a plot and with their own Margaery Tyrell now crowned queen at her wedding, she’s in the power position for the throne. Now the question remains of was the poison in the wine or in the pie?
Well that’s our pick of the top 5 potential culprits to have caused the death of everyone’s most despised and now deceased ruler of the realm King Joffrey. Like us do you think it’s fairly obvious that the Tyrells are the ones to have caused his death or have you another theory? Let us know!
