Cerelle was the only child of Lord Tybolt Lannister and his wife, Lady Teora Kyndall. When Tybolt died in 212 AC, Cerelle succeeded him as the Lady of Casterly Rock, at the age of three. Her uncle, Gerold Lannister, served as her regent.
Cerelle's rule would last for less than a year, as she herself suddenly passed away in 213 AC. After her death, she was succeeded by her uncle Gerold as Lord of Casterly Rock. Since both Lady Cerelle and her father Tybolt died suddenly and under suspicious circumstances, it was whispered that their deaths had been caused by Gerold, so that he would inherit the rule of House Lannister and the westerlands. According to a semi-canon source, the most common tale was that Gerold had murdered his niece himself, smothering her with a pillow as she slept.
Gerold ruled the westerlands for thirty-one years, earning the sobriquet Gerold the Golden. Despite all his accomplishments, some of his lords and many of his smallfolk had no love for him, as they blamed him for his niece's death. According to a semi-canon source, Lady Ellyn Tarbeck later named a daughter after Lady Cerelle to slight Gerold.
