Lannisport is a walled city along the coast of the Sunset Sea where the river road, gold road, and the sea road meet, just to the west lies Casterly Rock. It is one of the major ports of the Seven Kingdoms and the largest city in the Westerlands. Lannisport is smaller than King's Landing or Oldtown, but larger than Gulltown or White Harbor.
House Lannister anchors its fleet in its harbor. The city is renowned for its goldwork. Lannisport is policed by the City Watch, which are known to be very well-trained, compared to those of King's Landing or Oldtown. The city is home to House Lannister of Lannisport and distant kin to the Lannisters like Lannys, Lannetts, Lantells, and other lesser Lannisters, many of which are yellow of hair.
Ser Quentyn Ball attacked the city during the Blackfyre Rebellion, slaying Lord Lefford outside its gates. During the Great Spring Sickness, Lannisport was among the cities hit hardest.
Lord Tywin Lannister hosted a tourney for King Aerys II in Lannisport in 276AL.
During the Greyjoy Rebellion, Lannisport saw both triumph and disaster. The ironmen cunningly sailed into the harbor at Lannisport and burned the Lannister fleet at anchor. At the end of the war, in celebration of their victory over House Greyjoy, King Robert Baratheon ordered a tourney to be held. This was the site of the Tourney at Lannisport, where Ser Jorah Mormont won the hand of Lynesse Hightower.
A Clash of Kings
After the Battle of Oxcross, the shattered remnants of Ser Stafford Lannister's force fall back to Lannisport to regroup.
