Overlord House Lannister

House Falwell is a noble house from the westerlands sworn to House Lannister of Casterly Rock. They blazon their shields with a fool in red and gold motley juggling five suns on black.[1][2]

History

Lord Rupert Falwell participated in the battle at the Great Fork in 42 AC during the Faith Militant uprising. He slew two members of Maegor I Targaryen's Kingsguard before being cut down by Lord Mooton of Maidenpool.[3] Maegor I later used Balerion to set aflame the seat of the Falwells.[4]

During the misrule of Lord Tytos Lannister, Lords Falwell and Jast became embroiled in a private quarrel. Rather than seek a ruling from Casterly Rock, the lords decided to settle the matter with a melee. Nine men were killed, twenty-seven maimed and wounded, and still the quarrel raged on.[5]
