Tymond Lannister was Lord of Casterly Rock and head of House Lannister during the time of the Great Council of 101 AC.

Appearance and Character

In his youth, he was thought to be one of the handsomest men in all the realm; lithe and slender, with long golden mustachios and hair of the same hue, always clad in silk and satin. However, it was said that he was overly fond of women, and even more fond of wine.[1]

History

Queen Alysanne Targaryen raised the possibility of Tymond Lannister as a suitor to her daughter, Princess Daella. He was the richest among the possible contenders, but the princess was dissuaded by his personality. The princess eventually married Lord Rodrik Arryn.[1]

Lord Tymond attended the Great Council at Harrenhal with a retinue of three hundred bannermen, men-at-arms, and servants. However, he was outdone by Lord Matthos Tyrell of Highgarden, who counted five hundred in his retinue. Tymond supported the claim of Prince Viserys Targaryen, a choice that would be remembered and rewarded when Viserys ascended to the Iron Throne as King Viserys I Targaryen.[2]
