* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: Played with. Cersei definitely doesn't qualify as a good girl. She had terminated a pregnancy with Robert in the past and considered performing a fellatio on him as ''eating his sons'' (and it gave her satisfaction). However, given [[MaritalRapeLicense the most probable circumstances]] of conceiving the child, she does have an excuse for this one.

* DomesticAbuse: Both a victim and a perpetrator. Robert hits her and uses his MaritalRapeLicense on her often. Cersei herself is verbally and emotionally abusive to her lover Jaime (at least in book 4).

** Isabella of France, daughter of King Philip IV "the Fair" of France (who incidentally is one of the inspiration for Tywin Lannister), she was married off to Edward II King of England. Isabella was soon trapped in an unhappy marriage as she was constantly humiliated Isabella by [[AmbiguouslyGay the king's favourites]], who were also granted a higher position at court than Isabella herself. For both queens, the actions of their husbands lead to distain towards them and as result both queens eventually look lovers and plotted against their terrible spouses. Isabella had an affair with English nobleman Roger Mortimer and together they have King Edward disposed from the throne and assumed power of her son Edward III due to his young age, but their RegentForLife plans were thrown off a cliff as soon as Edward III grew up, who wanting to avoid the same fate as his father, executed Roger Mortimer and exiled his mother Isabella. Incidentally Isabella was the instigator of the [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tour_de_Nesle_Affair Tour de Nesle Affair]], a scandal amongst the French royal family in 1314, during which the three daughters-in-law of King Philip IV of France were accused of adultery, which inspired the FawltyTowers plot ([[spoiler:of framing Margaery Tyrell and her cousins for adultery]]) schemed by Cersei in ''Literature/AFeastForCrows''.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyBi: She does keep Taena Merryweather in her bed and they HAVE fooled around. Though it may only be a case of her using sex to get her way (like normal), or a case of IfItsYouItsOkay.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrewYourself: It is rather heavily implied that her attraction to Jamie stems from the fact that he is the closest she can get to actually realizing this trope. Jamie notes at one point that she will probably get upset by seeing him with a beard, as it makes him look less like her.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCloudcuckoolanderWasRight: A blink and you miss it one happens in Cersei VI, ''A Feast For Crows'' but astonishingly [[spoiler:she is the only POV character, and less than a handful of general characters, to figure out that the Tyrell's had a hand in Joffery's death.]] She even guesses the motive correctly!

Added DiffLines:

* InbredAndEvil: Joffrey's grandparents were cousins. His parents were siblings. And he's TheCaligula.

Added DiffLines:

* ApathyKilledTheCat: He never put in the effort to be an attentive father or husband, so he let Joffrey's cruelty grow unabated. He could never be bothered to keep the Small Council in check, which result in King's Landing being run into the ground by their power grabs. He refused to properly punish his enemies or rewards his supporters after the rebellion, allowing traitors to continue to scheme and causing his allies to sour against him. And he didn't intervene in the conflict between the Starks and the Lannisters, which set the stage for the War of the Five Kings.

* BigSisterBully: Was a nasty sibling to young Tyrion who she used to treat as her little punching bag. Shortly after Tyrion's birth, when Obery and Elia Martell were visiting the Lannisters with their mother, Cersei took the siblings to see her baby brother. Cersei removed Tyrion's swaddling clothes to fully expose him and twisted his penis so hard Tyrion cried out in pain, and only stopped when Jaime forced her to. Cersei dismissed Tyrion as the monster that killed her mother and who wouldn't live much longer himself. Another time in Tyrion's infancy, upon hearing of the story of Baelor the Blessed and the Maidenvault, Cersei was so taken at the injustice of punishing girls for their beauty that she went to Tyrion's crib and "pinched him till he cried." Even as adults, Cersei still bullies Tyrion.
