The 10 Best Female Warriors in TV History

Brienne of Tarth, Game of Thrones

New to the Thrones fray, as played by Gwendoline Christie, Brienne beat down the Kingslayer in a sword fight, took down the Knight of Flowers in a tourney, and bravely fought a beast of a bear with only a wooden sword. She is every bit a warrior: she clearly values honor and loyalty, and has never failed to fight for those she has sworn to protect, earning the respect of polar opposites Catelyn Stark and Jaime Lannister in the process. Just goes to show—everyone can, and does—appreciate Brienne.
