It seems the Kingsguard are becoming less and less seen the in the show.
A couple point to get to my title question:
- I know there are supposed to seven members (as with many things this related to the Faith of the Seven), but with conflicting lists (show vs. books) and plot lines I am unsure who is actually considered to a be member at this point.The list for show seems to making many assumptions on the status of the members. Is it possible to confirm the current members?
- Have we seen any other Kingsguard members? (other than Jaime and
Ser Robert StrongGregor Clegane recently) (Season 6)
Now, the High Sparrow seems to have it out for Cersei with the latest blow being
Tommen has ruled trial by combat illegal in the Seven Kingdoms. This has made a guilty verdict for Cersei highly likely.
However right before this we see
Gregor Clegane killing a member of the Faith Miliant in his protection of Cersei.
This seems especially relevant since
Jaime was still the Lord Commander of Kingsguard when they tried to rescue Margaery.
This seems to conflicting interest. Surely if the High Sparrow has enough influence on Tommen to get him to make the above decision he would be able to persuade him that the Kingsguard should only be guarding the king and protecting the Faith in this time unrest? So why is Kingsguard still protecting Cersei?
