Roger Reyne, known as "the Red Lion of Castamere", was Lord of Castamere and head of House Reyne. He was a famous warrior.[2]


Roger became Lord of Castamere after the death of his father during the Peake Uprising in 233 AC.[2]

Lady Ellyn Tarbeck, Roger's sister, was present at the feast in the westerlands where the betrothal of Genna Lannister and Emmon Frey was announced. While Ellyn laughed, the Red Lion left the hall in anger.[3]

Later the Red Lion rebelled against his liege lord, Tytos Lannister, alongside the Tarbecks. This time Tywin Lannister, Tytos's heir, lead the Lannister response. Both houses were exterminated.[3] A song known as the "The Rains of Castamere" was composed as a commemoration of the event.
