R'hllor approved.

In Season 5 of the show, Shireen Baratheon was burned alive by her father, Stannis Baratheon, because Melisandre instructed him to.

Shireen was killed because Melisandre convinced Stannis that sacrificing his daughter was the right thing to do for R'hllor.


It's been more than a year since Shireen was burned at the stake as if she were a witch from Salem, Massachusetts, but on Wednesday Houten tweeted a photo of herself with Kerry Ingram, who played Shireen, presumably from that day of filming.

No worries — it looks like the image might've been photoshopped.
