List Rules Vote up the characters who deserve the Tears of Lys.

The most hated Game of Thrones characters are despised for a number of reasons. Some of were responsible for the death of a fan-favorite GoT character or two. Others torture prostitutes instead of just sleeping with them like normal boys. Others retreat from attacks on the city while sending the common folk into battle. Wait, those people are all Joffrey Baratheon. 

As it turns out, however, Joffrey is not the only detestable GoT character (go fig), but is joined by multiple members of his family as well as a slew of other morally flexible citizens of the realm of Westeros. Whether they murder, lie, cheat, steal, or all of the above, there are plenty of people to hate in a series that regularly kills off fan favorite characters (and imprisons, rapes, and slanders others).

Who are the most evil Game of Thrones characters? What people on GoT do fans hate the most? Take some time to vote for the characters from Game of Thrones you feel deserve the title of most hated in GoT - and be sure to check out this list of Game of Thrones characters who should die.
