The elderly matriarch of House Tyrell of the Highgarden is not called the 'Queen of Thorns' for nothing.

No one, be it the Queen Mother Cersei, the Lannister patriarch Lord Tywin, or any important person really in all of King's Landing is safe from her sharp, barbed way of phrasing things. Even her own son Mace Tyrell, the Lord of Highgarden, or grandson the charming Loras Tyrell occasionally have to deal with the pricks of her thorns.

The fabulous acting of Diana Rigg made the character of Olenna Tyrell come alive on screen. The way she served her words as weapons, how she never missed an opportunity to sass up Cersei or the way she fiercely protected her family makes her one of the favorite women in the series. She does not even mince her words while talking to a grieving and scared Sansa when they first meet. Later she goes on to use Sansa as a pawn in her conspiracy of killing Joffrey at Margaery and Joffrey's wedding. Her cunning and wit far surpass that of the other characters in their sharpness and leaves us in wonder. That is why to honor the fearsome 'Queen of Thorns' we have compiled a list of Lady Olenna Tyrell quotes for the fans to enjoy. Whether you are looking for Olenna Tyrell season 7 quotes, Olenna Tyrell quotes to Jaime, Olenna Tyrell quotes ASOIAF, or 'Game of Thrones' quotes, you will find them all here.
