Melisandre/Margaret Beaufort + parallels

Religious fanatics whose fervor hides a powerful skill of manipulation. It’s their belief that each of their deities has chosen the man they support as king. Their divine belief in these men makes them confident to a fault that they will be the true king. But this belief also allows them persevere in the face of devastating defeats. One suffers the complete fall of her family and has to navigate a constantly shifting political landscape. She does this to success by planning secret coups and creating unlikely alliances. The other watches her king and his forces be annihilated in battle. She faces discrimination and doubt for her beliefs. Despite these things, she never doubts in her god or her king and still persuades people to her cause. So while judged severely for their religiousness, it turns out to be their greatest strength.
