Commonly known as the Tooth, the castle guards the one large pass through the mountains that allows direct travel between the Westerlands and the Riverlands to the east. It is generally held that in order to attack the Westerlands from the east, one must take the Golden Tooth to have a secure passage.
A Game of Thrones
A force under the command of Ser Jaime Lannister descends on the army of Lords Piper and Vance, which was sent to prevent any Lannister army from entering the Riverlands, and breaks them in what is known as the Battle of the Golden Tooth, a battle that marks the beginning of the War of the Five Kings. Later, Ser Forley Prester leads the remnants of Jaime's host back to the Golden Tooth, after their defeat in the Battle of the Camps.
A Clash of Kings
An army under the command of King Robb Stark circumvents the Golden Tooth and the passage it blocks by using a dangerous mountain path, found by his direwolf, Grey Wind. Robb leads his army into the Westerlands and descends upon a Lannister host, annihilating them at Oxcross, three days ride from Lannisport.
