Tymond Lannister was the Lord of Casterly Rock and the head of House Lannister during the late reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen.[2]

Appearance and Character

The lithe and slender Tymond had long golden mustachios and hair, and he was considered one of the most handsome men in the Seven Kingdoms in his youth.[1]

Tymond always wore in silk and satin. He was fond of women and wine.[1]

History

In 80 AC, Ser Tymond was the son and heir of the Lord of Casterly Rock. Queen Alysanne Targaryen raised the possibility of Tymond as a suitor to her daughter, Princess Daella. He was the richest among the possible contenders and closest in age to the princess, but the princess was dissuaded by his personality. Daella eventually married Lord Rodrik Arryn.[1]

By 101 AC, Ser Tymond had inherited from his father. That year, he attended the Great Council at Harrenhal with a retinue of three hundred bannermen, men-at-arms, and servants. However, he was outdone by Lord Matthos Tyrell of Highgarden, who counted five hundred in his retinue.[2][4] Lord Tymond supported the claim of Viserys Targaryen, a choice that would be remembered and rewarded when the prince ascended the Iron Throne as King Viserys I Targaryen.[2]

Family

Tymond was the son of an unnamed Lord of Casterly Rock.[1] He may have been the father of Lord Jason Lannister and his twin brother, Ser Tyland Lannister.
