Mom’s Viral ‘Game of Thrones’ Post Proves Titles Are Everything
As any good Game of Thrones fan can attest, sitting on the Iron Throne is a dream we all have. But there’s another dream many of us have: the dream of having a slew of awesome, fancy titles. If you’ve been watching Game of Thrones season 7 so far (spoiler alert), you might recall a fairly humorous meeting between Daenerys Targaryen (Khaleesi, Breaker of Chains, the Unburnt, and so on) and Jon Snow (former Nightswatchman? Doesn’t have the same ring to it…). If you can relate, you’re not alone, as this mom’s viral Game of Thrones post proves titles are everything.
The mom in question (who is not the Mother of Dragons) is Marigold Henderson. Marigold and her daughter Nandi recently visited the Game of Thrones pop-up bar in Washington D.C. (because why wouldn’t they? And also, someone get me a ticket to D.C. STAT). While there, Marigold had the glorious opportunity to sit on the Iron Throne. And yes, I’m totally jealous right now.
Anyway, Marigold decided to post her photo to Facebook (because it’s 2017). But rather than just post and add a caption like, “THIS IS AWESOME!!!” or “OMGOMGOMGOMG” like some of us might, she took it a step further. Marigold invoked her inner Khaleesi to come up with some kick-ass titles to add to her own name. Now, according to her Facebook profile, Marigold is already Assistant General Counsel at U.S. Federal Government, which is a mighty fancy title in and of itself. But once you read the rest of her lengthy name below via a Tweet by Nandi, you’ll see they are all kinds of magic.

Oh yes. Marigold totally sounds like the kind of ruler we all might be inclined to bend the knee to. “Ruler of only those things she can change control or care about?” Mighty wise. How about, “Minder of her own business?” We could certainly use more of that. And as a fellow yogi, I can totally get behind having a ruler that is a “Practitioner of Bikram yoga.” Plus, you want your rulers to be well-traveled (ahem, ahem, Dany), so it’s perfect that Marigold is also, “Slayer of her travel bucket list.” And in this world, you can’t have too many rulers who are self-purported, “Haters of Injustice.” Current U.S. president, take note!
Marigold’s post is now private, but keeps circulating via Nandi’s tweet, with currently 11k retweets and 25k likes (that’s some real viral status, y’all).
