History

Bringing to King's Landing a retinue from the westerlands, Lord Tywin Lannister hoped his son, Ser Jaime of the Kingsguard, would be the tourney's champion.[2] Half the court bet on Jaime, but he was unhorsed by Ser Loras Tyrell. Jaime lost a hundred golden dragons, and his sister, Queen Cersei Lannister, lost an emerald pendant which was later returned.[6] While the singer Marillion had won silver earlier in the tourney, he lost it all by betting on the Kingslayer.[7] King Robert I Baratheon won a Valyrian steel dagger,[3] which according to a semi-canon source had belonged to Lord Petyr Baelish.[8]

Lord Walder Frey went to King's Landing to see his sons ride in the tourney, but he was disappointed in the results. Walder also spoke with Lord Jon Arryn and his wife, Lysa, and proposed that they foster two of Walder's grandsons at court, while Walder would take their own son, Robert Arryn, to ward at the Twins. Jon refused Walder, however, and told him that Robert was going to be fostered at Dragonstone by Lord Stannis Baratheon. Upon learning this fact, Lysa stormed off without a word.[4]

When Tywin returned to Casterly Rock after the tourney, he was accompanied by his daughter, Cersei, and her children, Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen Baratheon. Lord Arryn died while the queen was away from court.[2]
