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. Members of the family often have the same blond hair as the main branch.
Lannisters from Casterly Rock developed Lannisport from a village into a town and then into a city. The Lannisters of Lannisport prospered off of trade, building walls to defend the city, while the Lannisters of Casterly Rock became the Kings of the Rock.
Ser Emory Hill, the Bastard of Lannisport, joined Lord Jason Lannister's host during the Dance of the Dragons, declaring for King Aegon II Targaryen. Ser Emory was among the notable casualties during the Battle by the Lakeshore. During the absence of much of the westerland's strength, Lord Dalton Greyjoy sacked Lannisport and took a Lannister of Lannisport as a salt wife.
During the reign of King Jaehaerys II Targaryen, two Lannisters of Lannisport were captured by Lady Ellyn Tarbeck—alongside their cousin Stafford Lannister and two sons of Lord Prester—after Ser Tywin Lannister arrested Lord Walderan Tarbeck. The young nobles were said to have gathered near the woods of Feastfires with half a dozen common girls for the purpose of dalliances. The hostages were later exchanged at Castamere in an effort to deescalate conflict in the westerlands.

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.
