Ród Lannisterów of Casterly Rock is one of the Great Houses of Siedem Królestw, and the principal house of the Krainy Zachodu. Their seat is Casterly Rock, though another branch exists that is based in nearby Lannisport. Their sigil is a golden lion on a field of crimson.[1] Their official motto is "Hear Me Roar!" However, their unofficial motto, equally well known, is "A Lannister always pays his debts."[2][3] The Namiestnik Zachodu is traditionally a Lannister.

The Lannisters reigned as Kings of the Rock until they fell to the Targaryen conquest, but were allowed to remain the liege lords of the Krainy Zachodu. The House had fallen on hard times during the rule of Tytos, but was restored to its former glory by Tywin. His daughter Cersei is the queen of King Robert Baratheon, while her twin Jaime is a Rycerz of Robert's Gwardia Królewska. Members of the family tend to have golden hair and emerald green eyes.


Fair-haired, tall, and handsome, the Lannisters are the blood of Andalowie adventurers who carved out a mighty kingdom in the western hills and valleys. Through the female line they boast of descent from Lann the Clever, the legendary trickster of the Era Herosów, who became the first Król Skały, after tricking the members of House Casterly into giving him Casterly Rock.[4] The gold of Casterly Rock, Castamere, the Pendric Hills and the Złoty Ząb has made them the wealthiest of the Great Houses, the keep at Casterly Rock sits literally on top of a gold mine, built into the very rock. From that lofty yet uncomfortable position, Ród Lannisterów rules over the Krainy Zachodu and influences all of Westeros, by virtue of the kingdom’s purse strings. Ród Lannisterów even possessed an ancestral Valyriańska stal greatsword called Brightroar; but it was lost when King Tommen II Lannister went on a quest to Valyria and never returned.[5] The Lannisters have been looking for a replacement ever since, though they not stopped looking for their own lost ancestral sword.[5]

When the Podbój Aegona began and Aegon the Conqueror swept through the land, King Loren I, the last King of the Rock, sided with King Mern IX of the Reach against the Targaryens. The two armies met in Reach, where the combined might of Reach and the Rock broke Aegon's army. Their army, dubbed by historians 'The Host of the Two Kings', numbered 55,000; five thousand of them mounted Rycerzs, while the Targaryens had only 10,000 men, many of uncertain loyalty and reliability. With their smaller force severely weakened and in danger of routing, Aegon and his sisters deployed all three smoks at once; the only time this happened during the war. Their combined fires scoured the battlefield, immolating more than four thousand men (including King Mern and his heirs) and giving the battle its name: The Pole Ognia.[6] After he was captured, King Loren bent the knee and was allowed to remain Lord of Casterly Rock and became the first Warden of the West.

The Lannisters were also involved in the Targaryen civil war, the Taniec Smoków. It was a contest of claims between Viserys I Targaryen's issue, Rhaenyra Targaryen, from an Arryn wife and his issue, Aegon II Targaryen by Alicent of Ród Hightowerów. The head of Ród Lannisterów at that time, Jason Lannister, supported Zieloni, along with his brother Ser Tyland Lannister, the master of ships and a member of the Mała Rada during the reign of Viserys I Targaryen. Tyland was named master of coin at the start of the Dance, and he seized the royal treasury and divided crown's gold into four parts. One part was entrusted to the care of the Żelazny Bank z Braavos for safekeeping, another sent under strong guard to Casterly Rock and a third to Stare Miasto. The remaining wealth was used by the greens for bribes and gifts and hiring Najemniks. However, the Lannister host under Lord Lefford was shattered in the Battle by the Lakeshore, the bloodiest battle of the Targaryen civil war. After the fall of Królewska Przystań, Tyland Lannister was given to torturers in the hopes of recovering some of the crown's treasure. Lord Jason also died at some point during the conflict, leaving Casterly Rock in disarray.[7]

Several decades later, during the Pierwsza Rebelia Blackfyre'a, Lord Damon Lannister remained loyal to the Targaryens. The great rebel general Ser Quentyn Ball defeated him outside the gates of Lannisport. Damon and his heir Ser Tybolt participated in the Turniej na Łące Ashford. Damon was defeated in the first tilt by Lord Leo "Longthorn" Tyrell, while his son defeated his opponent to become a champion. Tybolt inherited the lordship from Damon when the latter died of the Great Spring Sickness. Gerold Lannister was a suitor to Lady Rohanne Webber but much preferred to remain at Casterly Rock with his brother Tybolt. When Lord Dagon Greyjoy was raiding the western coast during the early reign of Aerys I Targaryen, Ród Lannisterów built ships to fight him at sea.

Lord Tywin Lannister

In more recent times, during the lordship of Tytos Lannister, the house fell on hard times. Tytos' weakness allowed him to be bullied by his vassals. Eventually his son Tywin brought the wayward bannermen to heel and restored the house to its former glory. Soon thereafter, Tywin was made Namiestnik Króla by Aerys II Targaryen, holding that position for many years. When Aerys was held hostage by Denys Darklyn, Tywin's conservative approach took six months to resolve the conflict. This instigated Aerys's paranoia and drove a wedge between the two, along with the king's lusting after Tywin's wife, cousin and trusted confidante Joanna. Tywin was never a jovial man, but when Joanna died birthing their third child, Tyrion, he was much saddened and his brother Kevan became his right hand. Their sister Genna took a maternal role over the children. His second brother Tygett died of a pox, and their brother Gerion sailed off on a journey to Valyria, never to be seen again.

Despite Tywin's attempts to ensure a strong legacy, life at Casterly Rock was dysfunctional at best. His twin children Cersei and Jaime began an incestuous relationship at an early age. Cersei, while a young maid, visited a woods witch called Maggy the Frog, who shared portents of Cersei's future that planted seeds of her paranoia. Cersei murdered her friend Melara Hetherspoon, who had witnessed the prophecy. Tyrion, when thirteen years old, was out with Jaime when he met and married a girl named Tysha, a match which was quickly and savagely ended by Lord Tywin. Tywin offered Tyrion to Houses Martell, Hightower, Royce, Florent and Tully, but he was rejected by all. Jaime was a promising young Rycerz, dubbed by Ser Arthur Dayne. Tywin was devastated when Jaime joined King Aery's Gwardia Królewska, breaking off a betrothal to Lysa Tully. Upon this action (which he perceived as the Mad King "stealing" his heir), coupled with the Mad King's refusal to wed Prince Rhaegar Targaryen to Cersei, Tywin resigned the Handship. This flew in the face of Jaime's plan, which was to be closer to Cersei: he was kept in Królewska Przystań while Cersei returned to Casterly Rock.

During Rebelia Roberta, the Lannisters stayed neutral for the majority of the war. Only after the defeat of Prince Rhaegar at the Trident did Lord Tywin bestir himself to join Robert Baratheon against the Targaryen dynasty, perpetrating the Zdobycie Królewskiej Przystani when the Lannister loyalist Grand Maester Pycelle suggested the gates be opened. There Ser Jaime Lannister, still a Gwardia Królewska, slew Aerys, the last crowned Targaryen king. Meanwhile Tywin's Rycerzs killed the rest of the Targaryens in the capital to prove their commitment to Robert's cause.[8] Afterwards, Tywin's daughter Cersei was wed to King Robert; Tya Lannister was the last Lannister to marry a member of Ród Baratheonów, Gowen Baratheon, before the marriage of Robert and Cersei. The royal marriage and the increasing amount of gold Robert owes to Tywin have only increased Lannister power. Much of Lord Tywin's energy is directed inward, ensuring all of his relatives do their part to uphold the family name.

Recent Events

Gra o Tron

Jaime Lannister leads a Lannister army - by Amok ©

Unbeknownst to most, Lord Tywin's children Queen Cersei and Ser Jaime have, for most of their lives, carried out an incestuous love affair. All three royal children, supposedly King Robert's, are actually Jaime's. Lord Eddard Stark and his wife Catelyn Tully suspect the Lannisters of murdering Eddard's predecessor as Namiestnik Króla, Lord Jon Arryn, and also of attempting to kill their son Bran. The latter is true, as the boy was a witness to their fornication.

Lady Catelyn captures Tyrion Lannister at the crossroads inn to bring him to trial, prompting Lord Lannister to send raiders to Tully lands in an attempt to draw Lord Stark into the field, hoping to capture him for an exchange. Eddard, however, is waylaid on the streets of Królewska Przystań by Ser Jaime and is injured in the melee, sending other men in his stead.

Tyrion escapes of his own volition, but the war continues along with intrigue in the capital, where Cersei has Eddard arrested. Tywin and Jaime win several victories over the river lords, but the Tullys are soon joined by Eddard's son Robb and a host of Ludzie Północy.

Tywin repels one Stark army under Lord Roose Bolton in the Bitwa nad Zielonymi Widłami, but this force turns out to have been a feint: with Tywin distracted, Robb captures Jaime in a surprise attack at the Whispering Wood, and breaks his siege of Riverrun.

Meanwhile Cersei fears for her children if Stark informs Robert of her childrens' parentage. She has her cousin Lancel Lannister, Robert's squire, supply the king with strongwine during a boar hunt, resulting in Robert receiving a mortal wound.

Soon Cersei's and Jaime's son Joffrey has become king, and orders the execution of Lord Stark, ruining any chance of peace. Jaime, despite his absence, is named Lord Commander of the Gwardia Królewska. Tywin, having been named Hand, sends Tyrion to take up his duties while he campaigns in the Dorzecze. Meanwhile Robert's brothers Stannis and Renly Baratheon have each contested Joffrey's right to the Żelazny Tron. So begins the Wojna Pięciu Królów.

Starcie Królów

Tyrion and Cersei compete for influence at Królewska Przystań, with Tyrion constantly outmaneuvering her. Desperate for allies, he makes moves to ally with Ród Martellów. Part of this involves betrothing Princess Myrcella to Trystane Martell. When her ship leaves port, the royal party is caught up in the Zamieszki w Królewskiej Przystani provoked by King Joffrey. Jaime languishes in the dungeon of Riverrun, despite attempts to free him. Meanwhile Cersei has replaced him in her bed with their cousin Ser Lancel Lannister. When the Stark forces invade the Krainy Zachodu, Tywin's army marches from Harrenhal, but are prevented access to their homelands by Ser Edmure Tully at the Bitwa o Brody. As a result, King Robb's army destroys a third Western host under Ser Stafford Lannister at the Bitwa o Oxcross and raids the Krainy Zachodu, but Tywin is close enough to Królewska Przystań to defend the city when he hears of King Stannis's impending attack. Due to Tywin's presence, Tyrion's defensive preparations, and a new alliance with Ród Tyrellów, the Lannisters are able to defeat Stannis in the Bitwa nad Czarnym Nurtem, despite nearly suffering a rout of the gold cloaks when Cersei withdraws King Joffrey from the city walls. Most of Stannis's bannermen declare for Joffrey, and Lord Tywin takes up rule in his own right. Meanwhile Catelyn Stark, having heard of the supposed deaths of two of her sons at the hands of the turncloak Theon Greyjoy, releases Jaime from captivity in an attempt to covertly exchange him for her daughters Sansa and Arya. Unknown to most is that Arya escaped Królewska Przystań long ago.

Nawałnica Mieczy

Tywin refuses to appoint Tyrion as heir to the Rock, instead making him Starszy nad Monetą and wedding him to Sansa Stark for her claim to Winterfell and denying the Tyrells the chance to wed her to Willas. His brother and right hand, Ser Kevan Lannister, is named Master of Laws. Tywin also betroths Joffrey to Margaery Tyrell, and tries to re-wed Cersei, this time to Willas Tyrell, but Lord Mace refuses under pressure from his mother. Cersei is shunned from the council, and her regency over King Joffrey is ended. Tywin also restores the title of Warden of the East to Ród Arrynów, it having been given to Jaime after Jon Arryn's death, and reinstates Pycelle as grand maester when he hears the Cytadela plans to grant the title to a Tyrell uncle, Gormon Tyrell.

When Tywin discovers that Robb Stark has wed a daughter of one of his minor bannermen, Jeyne Westerling, he begins plotting with Jeyne's mother, the slighted Lord Walder Frey and the opportunistic Lord Roose Bolton to overthrow the northern king. This treachery is accomplished in the wedding at Bliźniaki of Edmure Tully to one of the Frey women, when Robb, Lady Catelyn, and many others are murdered under Prawo gościny. The Starks and Tullys are ousted from power, replaced respectively by Lannister-backed Ród Boltonów and Ród Baelishów z Harrenhal. Most of their bannermen grudgingly return to the king's peace. With Renly and Robb dead, Stannis repelled and with few followers, and the Greyjoys concentrating on Północ, Lannister power is at its zenith.

When King Joffrey unexpectedly dies at his wedding feast, Cersei wrongfully accuses Tyrion of the deed. Tywin is a judge at the trial, along with Mace Tyrell and Prince Oberyn Martell, the Red Viper of Dorne. After a bevy of witnesses defame Tyrion, including those he thought his friends, the Imp demands a trial by combat. Since Ser Gregor Clegane is appointed the royal champion, Prince Oberyn fights for Tyrion in an effort to avenge his sister Princess Elia, killed during Tywin's sack of Królewska Przystań. Oberyn loses and Tyrion is condemned to die. Jaime, meanwhile, has made his way to Królewska Przystań with Brienne z Tarthu, sworn sword of Lady Catelyn. On the way, he lost his hand by order of Vargo Hoat, the sellsword holding Harrenhal who now serves Ród Starków. His return to the capital finds a changed man, increasingly at odds with his family. He quarrels with Lord Tywin, refusing to resign from the Gwardia Królewska to become heir to Casterly Rock. Before Tyion can be executed Jaime frees him from his cell; Tyrion reveals Cersei's infidelity and accepts false responsibility for Joffrey's death. During his escape, Tyrion kills Lord Tywin with a crossbow.

Uczta dla Wron

Dead soldiers with bearing the colors of Ród Lannisterów have washed up on the Cicha Wyspa. According to the Elder Brother, they are buried next to their enemies.

Tywin's death lingers over the Lannister landscape. Cersei resumes her regency, now over the newly crowned Tommen I and sets out to prove herself a better ruler than her father. Ignoring her father's plans, she fills the Mała Rada with her own lackeys. As Queen Regent, she tries to appoint Jaime as Namiestnik Króla, but he refuses - she responds by saying she was a fool for ever having loved him. After Tywin's funeral, Cersei charges Jaime with the mopping-up campaign in the Dorzecze, beginning with lifting the Oblężenie Riverrun. While on campaign, Jaime tries to hone his left-handed swordsmanship and confronts his cousin Lancel at Darry, where the latter is lord but has sworn himself to the Faith Militant (see below).

Kevan Lannister acknowledges Cersei as Lady of Casterly Rock. She offers him the position of Namiestnik Króla, which he declines unless he can also assume the regency. Cersei refuses to give up her power and appoints Ser Daven Lannister as the new Namiestnik Zachodu to slight Ser Kevan, and Ser Damion is named castellan of the Rock. Finally she makes Ser Harys Swyft the Hand, because he is a tractable man and he is a hostage against Ser Kevan. Cersei puts out a bounty for Tyrion's head, resulting in the deaths of many innocent dwarfs throughout the kingdoms as men try to cash in, but she refuses to rescind the offer for fear someone might stay his hand. Despite Tommen's marriage to Queen Margaery, Cersei begins to plot against the Tyrells, whom she suspects of intrigue. She gives one maid she suspects of espionage to Lord Qyburn, her sinister ex-maester Master of Whisperers, for his twisted experiments in necromancy, along with the corpse of Gregor Clegane (dead from the Red Viper's poisoned spear). Queen Margaery wants her brother Loras Tyrell to become King Tommen's master-at-arms; an offer which Cersei staunchly refuses. When Euron Greyjoy's Żelaźni Ludzie invade Reach, Cersei grants Ser Loras his wish to take command of the Siege of Smocza Skała, hoping that he would rashly storm the castle to free up the Redwyne fleet. Her hopes are fulfilled, as the Rycerz of Flowers was reportedly maimed by boiling oil.

To "raise" funds to build a new royal fleet, Cersei freezes all crown debts, angering the Żelazny Bank z Braavos and the Wiara w Siedmiu, and also has the Wielki Septon chosen by Tyrion assassinated. She tries to mollify the church by allowing the return of the Wiara Wojująca, but the new Wielki Septon has her arrested for her fornications, murders, and other myriad sins. She writes an impassioned letter to Jaime, imploring him to defend her in a trial by combat, but he burns the letter without response. Lord Orton Merryweather, having replaced Harys Swyft as Hand, flees the capital as Swyft (now Master of Coin) and Grand Maester Pycelle take control of King Tommen and request that Kevan Lannister return to Królewska Przystań as Lord Regent.

Taniec ze Smokami

Ser Kevan, as Lord Regent, begins trying to undo Cersei's political bumbling. To placate Ród Lannisterów's Tyrell allies, he appoints Lord Mace as Namiestnik Króla, and his bannermen Paxter Redwyne and Randyll Tarly to the Mała Rada. He also visits the imprisoned Cersei, confronting her about her affair with Lancel and telling her that, regardless of her trial, her rule is at an end. When she undergoes her walk of shame across the city, shaven and benuded, he ensures that King Tommen does not witness the event.

Tyrion, aided by Varys, has been whisked across the Wąskie Morze. There Varys's ally Illyrio Mopatis arranges for him to travel with a misfit band to seek out Daenerys Targaryen. En route, he realizes that one of the group is actually the exiled Hand Jon Connington, and that his "son" is Rhaegar's son Prince Aegon, long thought to be dead. At a brothel in Selhorys, Tyrion is captured by another exiled lord, Jorah Mormont, who aims to go to Daenerys for his own reasons. On the way to Meereen, Tyrion befriends a dwarf woman called Grosik, who had performed at Joffrey's wedding. After a shipwreck, they are captured and sold into slavery. They are nearly killed by lions in the fighting pit before Queen Daenerys puts an end to it. When their master dies of the pale mare, the trio joins the Drudzy Synowie, as Tyrion plans to have Ben Plumm switch sides again back to Daenerys's cause.

Jaime brokers peace at the siege of Raventree Hall, the last southron stronghold loyal to Robb Stark's lost cause. While riding back to Riverrun he unexpectedly meets Brienne z Tarthu, who tells him that he must go with her to honor his oath to retrieve Sansa Stark.

Kevan, while trying to deal with the resurgent Faith Militant and the apparently living and Złota Kompania-backed Aegon VI, is murdered in his chambers by Varys. The Spider hopes that the Lord Regent's death will cast suspicion between Wysogród and Casterly Rock and prevent Kevan from closing the rifts created during Cersei's rule. These problems, combined with the mounting threats toward the Lannister-backed Ród Boltonów in Północ, the continuing Greyjoy threat, and the uncertain loyalty of Dorne mean that Lannister power is anything but secure.
