Portraits: Margaery Tyrell

This painting could show Margaery at Highgarden or on one of her rides into the countryside around King’s Landing.  The young woman is pretty, with loose brown hair, as Margaery is described.  The flowers symbolize House Tyrell.  And the look on her face, even when viewed from the side, shows a certain understanding, or resolve, which characterizes Margaery perfectly.  For although the youngest Tyrell first appears to be nothing more than a pretty ingenue, we soon learn that she’s much more determined and cunning than she initially lets on.

Do you see Margaery below?
