Of all the deceitful, manipulative, internally ugly characters on Game Of Thrones, HBO’s adaption of best-selling author George R.R. Martin’s sprawling fantasy series, there is but one who instantly inspires hatred with just his sour facial expressions: Joffrey Baratheon.

Westeros' power-mad boy king, played marvelously by the far more amiable Jack Gleeson, wears the crown illegitimately, having been born of incest between his "uncle," Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), and his mother, Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), and passed off as the heir of her husband, the now-deceased King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy). Joffrey was always a sniveling and cowardly brat with a Crown Prince's sense of entitlement, but now that he sits in the Iron Throne he is crueler than ever.

Whether he is taking joy in forcing men to battle to the death for his amusement or reeling in shock that Cersei dare lay a hand upon him, this royal pain in the ass makes us want to slap the taste out of his medieval mouth. Our palms were itching just putting together this gallery of Joffrey Baratheon's Douchiest Faces On Game Of Thrones.
