The yielding of Harrenhal is part of the Lannister invasion of the riverlands during the War of the Five Kings.


With the rivermen defeated in the battle under the walls of Riverrun, Lord Tywin Lannister and Ser Kevan Lannister march on the various castles of the riverlands. After controlling the kingsroad, Tywin heads to Harrenhal, with his men burning the land while they march north.[2] Lady Shella Whent surrenders her great castle to the Lannisters because she lacks the men to hold it.[3]


Harrenhal is granted by the Iron Throne to Janos Slynt and the newly made House Slynt for his role in the arrest of Lord Eddard Stark.[4] Tywin uses Harrenhal as his base during the War of the Five Kings.[5]
