People really hate King Joffrey! And with good reason! But like most things in life, not everything is purely black and white. Though not often depicted on ‘Game of Thrones,’ King Joffrey had a good side to him – a sensitive side -- that not many people know about. Let’s take a look back at 12 moments that will restore your faith in Joffrey.
‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 conjures its second episode of the season, “The Lion and the Rose,” as the royal wedding of Joffrey and Margaery Tyrell goes predictably awry, while Tyrion makes a heartbreaking sacrifice, and Ramsay Bolton gets a new mission from his father.
Last week's ‘Game of Thrones’ season premiere “Two Swords” saw Tyrion greeting the vengeful Prince Oberyn Martell for Joffrey's wedding, while Jaime had difficulty adjusting to life back in Kings' Landing, Jon Snow prepared the Night's Watch, and Arya encountered an old friend.

'Game of Thrones' season 4 will arrive soon enough by its April 6 premiere, but this year we won't have to wait until episode 9 for one of the biggest episodes of the season: the Royal Wedding!

By the old gods and the new, they're finally here! HBO may not be airing much programming this Sunday opposite the Super Bowl, but why should that stop a fresh look at 'Game of Thrones' season 4? Fifteen brand-spanking-new photos have arrived, offering up new looks at the returning characters, as well as our first glimpse of the new Daario Naharis, and the Red Viper's lovely lady, Ellaria Sand!
Though we could find 'Game of Thrones' star Jack Gleeson's diverse body of work beginning as early as 2005's 'Batman Begins,' most would forever associate him with the sniveling and impetuous King Joffrey of HBO's fantasy-drama.
