House Lannister of Lannisport
|House Lannister of Lannisport|
House Lannister of Lannisport is an ancient branch of House Lannister in the westerlands who live in the city of Lannisport, rather than the main branch's seat of Casterly Rock. Neither their words nor their arms are known. Members of the family often have the same blond hair as the main branch. According to semi-canon sources they rule the city or are at least gentry.
According to a semi-canon source, Lannisters from Casterly Rock developed Lannisport from a village into a town and then into a city. The Lannisters of Lannisport built walls to defend the city, while the Lannisters of Casterly Rock became the Kings of the Rock.

Rosamund Lannister was chosen by Tyrion Lannister to accompany Myrcella Baratheon to Dorne due to their close resemblance. When Ser Arys Oakheart brings Princess Myrcella to Arianne Martell, he disguises Rosamund as Myrcella and tells everyone she has redspots.
