Warden of the South is a warden title bestowed on the most prominent house of the Reach by the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. All known Wardens of the South thus far have been from House Tyrell, who became Lords of Highgarden after the extinction of House Gardener, the former Kings of the Reach, during the War of Conquest.

Responsibilities

The initial appointment of a warden in southern Westeros was likely to deal with Dorne, which had not been subdued during the Targaryen conquest and was still hostile to outsiders. When Dorne joined the Seven Kingdoms during the reign of King Daeron II Targaryen, the title likely became more ceremonial. However, the warden titles were used during the War of the Ninepenny Kings.
