Leo Tyrell, known as Leo Longthorn, was Lord of Highgarden and head of House Tyrell during the reign of Daeron II Targaryen.[1]

Appearance and Character

Leo was slender and had grey hair during Daeron II's reign. He was extremely well respected and liked.[1] Nearly a hundred years later Leo is still regarded as one of the finest knights ever produced from House Tyrell.[2][3]


The Tourney at Ashford Meadow

Lord Leo participated in the tourney at Ashford Meadow, beginning the tourney as one of the champions. In the first tilt he was challenged by Lord Damon Lannister, who yielded on the third lance after having his helm knocked off.[1]

Leo was next challenged by Lord Pearse Caron, who was defeated after his longaxe caught in Leo's shield after a fight afoot.[1]

One-eyed Ser Robyn Rhysling lost his helm to Leo's lance in their first course, yet refused to yield. Three times more, they rode at each other, but Leo was too chivalrous to aim another lance at Ser Robyn’s unprotected head. Finally, the Lord of Highgarden struck Robyn's breastplate a solid thump right over the heart and sent him cartwheeling to the earth.[1]

Later Life

Rumors Leo was ailing were heard by Ser Duncan the Tall and Egg while they were in the Reach.[4]
