Who is in the Kingsguard right now in the show?

Postby DarrenT » Mon Jun 16, 2014 1:57 pm

Just wondering if it's been addressed in the show who is currently in the Kinsguard:

Confirmed in the show

Jaime - Lord Commander
Meryn Trant - testified in Tyrion's trial, featured regularly
Boros Blount - mentioned by Jaime as guarding Tommen's room
Arys Oakheart - I don't recall him ever being mentioned by name but we do see a Kingsguard with Myrcella on the boat to Dorne
Preston Greenfield - I think Jaime mentions him in the scene where he, Ser Meryn and Joffrey are talking about the wedding...in the books he is killed in the riots but apparently not in the show

Uncertain

Barristan Selmy - relieved of his duty, replaced by the Hound
Sandor Clegane - leaves the Kingsguard; was he replaced?
Balon Swann - can't recall him ever being mentioned or featured in the show
Osmund Kettleblack - not sure if the Kettleblacks will be in the show; but if they are they should be around already
Loras Tyrell - not currently a member; not sure if this will happen in the show, as he is the heir to Highgarden

I guess we can assume that currently the Kingsguard is:

Jaime
Meryn
Boros
Arys
Preston
Balon

That leaves 6 kingsguard and only 5 in the capitol. I found it funny when Cersei demanded that Tommen have 4 kingsguard guarding him day and night. That's a lot of overtime; I hope they're getting time and a half.

I think your final estimate of the 6 is probably right. It might also be safe to assume that Osmund Kettleblack exists and simply has not been introduced or characterized yet. Otherwise, it would have to be an unnamed knight, or perhaps a position is still vacant.

I also forgot to add Mandon Moore who is killed by Pod at the Battle of the Blackwater. I don't remember them every naming someone as his replacement in the show, but this could be Balon Swann because, according to the Wki, Balon replaces Preston Greenfield after he dies in the riot.
