Take or Retake the Throne

Daenerys Targaryen, the Queen of Dragons, gets upset when a man corrects her.
  • 1Whatever you grant me now will be repaid three times over...
  • 2...when I retake the Iron Throne.
  • 3Retake?
  • 4Did you once sit on the Iron Throne?
  • 5My father sat there before he was murdered.
  • 6If you did not sit on it yourself, would it not be correct to say "take" the Iron Throne?
  • 7I didn't come here to argue grammar.
