* TheManBehindTheMan: Although Mace directs general policy, his mother has a huge hand in ensuring it doesn't explode on the whole family, as well as working towards anything positive that might come from his ideas. [[spoiler:It's outright stated by Littlefinger that she perpetrated the assassination of King Joffrey and framed Tyrion and Sansa for the magnicide -- sure, he orchestrated a lot, but she got down to hammering the brass tacks of the plan herself. However... keeping the [[ConsumateLiar Littlefinger]] factor in mind is advisable]].

* UnwittingPawn: Like her son, she was manipulated by Littlefinger to ensure [[spoiler: Joffrey's death by poisoning -- however, we only have Littlefinger's word for this. How much was fully "pawn" or "unwitting" on her part is debatable. But, he certainly doctored parts of her information about Joffrey and, just so happened to be able to supply a route to a mutually beneficial solution]]. However, he most certainly ''didn't'' need to force her hand behind her back to pull it off. Nor did he have to point the need out to do it.

** Incidentally, in the adaptation of both stories, Margaery in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' and Anne Boleyn in ''Series/TheTudors'' are both played by the same actress. Ironically, NatalieDormer has said in interviews that she took the part on the reassurance she wouldn't just be playing Anne Boleyn again, which may explain some of the show's changes to her character arc.

* TheChessmaster: She is about as manipulative as Varys or Littlefinger.

** In addition, both regard family as of paramount importance, but Tywin values his family mainly as an extension of his own reputation and alienates his children with unrealistic expectations, while Olenna regards most of her brood as chronic screw-ups but genuinely loves and protects them anyway.
