The Golden Tooth is a stronghold in the Westerlands. It is more commonly known as 'the Tooth'. It guards the one large pass through the mountains that allows direct travel between the Westerlands and the Riverlands to the west. 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. It is the seat of House Lefford. The gold from the Golden Tooth helped establish House Lannister as one of the richest houses in Westeros.
A Game of Thrones
A force under the command of Ser Jaime Lannister descended on the Riverlands army, which was sent to prevent any Lannister army from entering the Riverlands and broke them in what is known as the Battle of the Golden Tooth, a battle that marked the opening of the War of the Five Kings. Later, Jaime's host retreated back to the Golden Tooth, after their defeat in the Battle of the Camps.
A Clash of Kings
An army under the command of Robb Stark circumvented the Golden Tooth and the passage it blocks by using a dangerous mountain path, found by his direwolf, Grey Wind. King Robb leads his army into the Westerlands and descends upon a Lannister host, annihilating them at Oxcross, three days ride from Lannisport.
