Willas Tyrell by Mikey Booch ©

Lord Tywin Lannister learns of the plot from Lord Petyr Baelish and hastily marries Sansa to his son Tyrion.[4] Tywin offers his daughter, Queen Regent Cersei Lannister, to be married to Willas, which would quieten rumors of her incest with her brother, Ser Jaime Lannister, but the Tyrells refuse the offer.[8]
