This question already has an answer here:

At the end of the TV episode The Winds of Winter, we see

Cersei sitting and crowned on the iron throne.

What makes them sit there given that

She isn't a Baratheon. Remaining Baratheons, by blood, should then have priority, even if all Robert's, Stannis' and Renly's lines are cut. Cousins probably?
She isn't male, while the series told us for years that women don't sit in that throne (books might say otherwise, though). Season 6 changed that, but there were several hints through the series that this is true. Jaime would be fitting better on the throne than Cersei. It seems to me that in the sexist world of Westerns, they'd better forgive a man some promise rather than let a woman take the lead. See Jon / Sansa in the very same episode.
Even though she killed her accusers, the rumours and reasons why her trial had to take place haven't disappeared with the High Sparrow.
Some people can still see her game. She has The Mountain to fix that but he only stops individuals, not the entire system, doesn't he? At best she'd be a regent, not a queen...

  • Help fixing the spoiler tags please? I just can't set them straight :/ Also, I posted from the phone, so sorry for the bad quality. – Olivier Grégoire Jun 28 '16 at 0:37
  • I spoilered what you wanted spoilered. For some reason you need to put a >! at the start of blank lines between paragraphs too. – Rand al'Thor Jun 28 '16 at 0:42

    Also, The Winds of Winter =/= GoT season 6. – Rand al'Thor Jun 28 '16 at 0:43
  • @Theyna Yep, it's a duplicate. Still a good question though, +1. – Rand al'Thor Jun 28 '16 at 0:44
