A Kingsmoot has been referenced briefly in Game of Thrones, but we’re yet to see one. It is a traditional ceremony from the Iron Islands where a new King is chosen from a selection of the top captains. The ironborn storyline was dropped by Thrones but after a spate of casting calls for potential Greyjoys ahead of Season 6, they look almost certain to return.
It would make sense to re-introduce them quickly, and a Kingsmoot could be just the way to bring them back into the fold. Yara Greyjoy would be in contention to take over her father Balon if something were to happen to him, while there are several other contenders from around the family. Their impact on Westeros remains unmeasurable, but we could be about to find out.
