Lord Garlan Tyrell, better known as Garlan the Gallant, is the second son of Lord Mace Tyrell and Lady Alerie Hightower. His personal coat of arms is two golden roses on green, to denote his status as second son.[2]

Appearance and Character

Garlan is a taller, bearded version of his brother Ser Loras Tyrell. He is five years older than Ser Loras.[3] He is an exceptionally skilled swordsman, usually training against three or four swordsmen, practice for actual battle,[4] but his lack of interest in gaining glory makes him less famous than his younger brother, Ser Loras.


Garlan was plump in his youth. His elder brother Willas named him the Gallant before someone else would think of another nickname to mock him.[5] He was married to Lady Leonette of House Fossoway.
