History

House Gardener

Highgarden - by Juan Carlos Barquet © Fantasy Flight Games

Highgarden is said to have been built by Garth the Gardener atop a hill overlooking the Mander.[7] Highgarden was the center of the Reach proper, and the Kings of the Reach from House Gardener grew to acquire what has become the Reach.[8]

During the Andal invasion of Westeros, King Mern II Gardener built a curtain wall about the castle. The Andals were ultimately welcomed into the Reach, however, and King Garth IX Gardener built the first sept at Highgarden, although he continued to worship in its godswood. House Tyrell became the hereditary stewards of the castle.[9]

Highgarden was sacked by Dornishmen during the reign of King Garth X Gardener, and the Gardener's Oakenseat was destroyed. The castle was rebuilt by Garth's cousin, King Mern VI Gardener.[9]

The peaceful Harmund II Hoare, King of the Iron Islands, once visited Highgarden and Oldtown.[10]

House Tyrell

Highgarden was the seat of House Gardener until Aegon the Conqueror defeated King Mern IX Gardener and his host on the Field of Fire, ending their line. When Aegon then marched his host to Highgarden, its steward, Harlen Tyrell, surrendered the castle. For this, Aegon granted him the castle and gave House Tyrell dominion over the Reach as the Lord Paramount of the Mander.[11][12] However, other houses, such as the Florents, Rowans, and Oakhearts, also claim blood ties to the Gardeners and covet Highgarden.[5]

During the reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen, the Tyrells hosted the famed Tourney of the Field of Roses.[3] The Tyrells were neutral during the Dance of the Dragons, so Ser Ulf the White wanted to be rewarded with Highgarden. He was poisoned after the Second Battle of Tumbleton, however.[13]

While a squire to Arlan of Pennytree, Ser Duncan the Tall once served at Highgarden, where he met Leo Longthorn.[14] Prince Daeron Targaryen squired at Highgarden with Jeremy Norridge.[15]

Samwell Tarly saw Highgarden when his father, Lord Randyll Tarly, visited Lord Mace Tyrell, Warden of the South.[16] Princess Arianne Martell wanted to meet Mace's heir, Willas, but Prince Doran Martell forbid his daughter from going to Highgarden.[17]

Following the death of King Robert I Baratheon, his younger brother Renly Baratheon and Ser Loras Tyrell flee from King's Landing to Highgarden.[18] Renly weds Loras's sister, Margaery, at Highgarden and claims the Iron Throne with the support of House Tyrell. Lord Mace Tyrell calls the banners to Highgarden.[19]

A Clash of Kings

Brienne of Tarth travels to Highgarden,[20] where she is falsely courted by some of Renly's men.[21] Renly marches from Highgarden on the Roseroad toward King's Landing,[22] but he diverts at Bitterbridge for Storm's End.[23] Mace remains at Highgarden with ten thousand reinforcements.[23]

During the parley at Storm's End, Renly offers his brother Stannis a peach from Highgarden.[24] After the death of Renly, the Tyrells do not follow Stannis. Lord Petyr Baelish travels to Bitterbridge[25] and then Highgarden, where he meets Mace and Lady Olenna Tyrell.[26] Petyr negotiates an alliance between the Tyrells and the Lannisters, with the widowed Margaery agreeing to marry King Joffrey I Baratheon.[27] Mace's men prove decisive in the Battle of the Blackwater.[27] The Tyrells in King's Landing send for Margaery, who had returned to Highgarden from Bitterbridge.[27]

A Storm of Swords

After having caused famine in King's Landing by closing the roseroad while supporting Renly,[28] the Tyrells send carts of food from Higharden to the royal capital and are thus beloved by the Kingslanders.[29] Many of the Tyrells travel to King's Landing, but Willas Tyrell, Mace's heir, remains at Highgarden.[5]

The Tyrells plot to marry Sansa Stark to Willas,[30] but the Lannisters instead engineer Sansa's marriage to Tyrion Lannister.[31]

After Joffrey's death, Littlefinger reveals to Sansa that while he was at Highgarden negotiating with Mace and Olenna, he ordered his men to spread disturbing tales of Joffrey to discredit the boy king.

A Dance with Dragons

Laswell Peake tells Aegon Targaryen that the power of Highgarden may not be what Lord Mace Tyrell imagines, as some members of the Golden Company still have friends in the Reach.[35] Since the Tyrells are occupied with the ironborn and politics in King's Landing, Obara Sand wants the Dornishmen to attack the Reach.[36]

Quotes

You need to come south. You need a taste of summer before it flees. In Highgarden there are fields of golden roses that stretch away as far as the eye can see. The fruits are so ripe they explode in your mouth—melons, peaches, fireplums, you've never tasted such sweetness.[6]

Renly Baratheon is nothing to me, nor Stannis neither. Why should they rule over me and mine, from some flowery seat in Highgarden or Dorne?[37]

The war had not touched the fabled bounty of Highgarden.[23]

—thoughts of Catelyn Stark

The roses support the lion, as the might of Highgarden supports the realm.[27]

At Highgarden we have many spiders amongst the flowers. So long as they keep to themselves we let them spin their little webs, but if they get underfoot we step on them.[5]

You will love Highgarden as I do, I know it. Once you see it, you'll never want to leave.[5]

Centuries of blood and war lay between Sunspear and Highgarden.[38]

—thoughts of Cersei Lannister
