Talk: House Lannister of Lannisport
From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Isn't this wrong? I don't think the Lannisters of Lannisport are a proper house. They're just a wide variety of poor cousins of the Lannisters who live in Lannisport. It's not a single branch. Jlk7e 23:04, 24 May 2011 (CDT)
- I think that the question is what makes a family a house. Westeros does not seem to have a Almanach de Gotha so we cannot look for a that. What else? A keep, a fief with a title? We made the Cassels a house although they are household knights and don't seem to have a keep or their own land.
- Myrcella says her cousin Rosamund Lannister is a Lannister of Lannisport. I think this was the basis for the article. She does not specify that the family of her cousin holds a title to Lannisport, just that Rosamund is from a separate though related family. We add that to the article that it is not clear whether the Lannister branch-that-is-living-in-Lannisport has a title. Scafloc 04:33, 25 May 2011 (CDT)
- Furthermore, small houses like the Arryns of Gulltown are considered noble houses even though they have what is considered "weak blood". The reason I made them a house is because they have characteristics, as if there were traits being handed down from generation - which means a concerted effort to maintain the line.(The Pale Griffin 06:04, 25 May 2011 (CDT))
