King Tommen Baratheon, the First of his Name, is known to the realm as the youngest child of King Robert I and Queen Cersei Lannister, though like all of Cersei's children his father is in truth Cersei's brother Jaime. He is crowned King following the death of his brother Joffrey at the feast following Joffrey's wedding to Margaery Tyrell and later marries Margaery in Joffrey's place. Due to his young age and meek, tractable personality, actual governance of the realm falls to his mother, the Queen Regent.
Appearance and personality
Tommen is plump, with curly golden hair. He opens the series as a child of seven years. Tommen unlike his brother is regarded as a good hearted lad who always tries his best, Although Tommen is not as strong willed as Joffrey many other characters (except his mother) think that he will be a much better king then his brother ever was.
A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
With both internal rioting and external armies making King's Landing increasingly unsafe, Cersei plots to sneak Tommen out of the city to Rosby under the protection of Lord Gyles Rosby, disguised as a page. However, Tommen's uncle Tyrion Lannister, the acting Hand of the King, learns of the plot, and sends Jacelyn Bywater to intercept the party and take Tommen to Rosby himself, thereby under Tyrion's control and not Cersei's. Tyrion then threatens that any harm inflicted on Alayaya, a prostitute believed to be Tyrion's lover and arrested under the Queen's orders, will be visited upon Tommen as well. The Kingsguard knight who allows Bywater to take Tommen, Ser Boros Blount, is stripped of his white cloak.
A Storm of Swords
Acting of his own accord while Hand of Stannis Baratheon, Alester Florent attempts to settle a peace agreement with Tywin Lannister that involves a promise of marriage between Tommen and Stannis' daughter Shireen, but his plans do not come to pass.
A Feast for Crows
After the death of Tywin Lannister, with his mother Cersei acting as Queen Regent, Tommen acts as King, his primary (and favorite) activity being to place the royal stamp on any document put in front of him. Cersei frowns upon his meek and tractable nature, frequently comparing him with disfavor to his willful, headstrong brother Joffrey.
After his wedding to Margaery Tyrell, however, Margaery begins to influence Tommen to resist his mother's commands. Margaery Tyrell gives Tommen three black kittens. Tommen also takes an interest at knighthood and jousting, and reacts with anger when Cersei refuses to honor his "command" that Ser Loras Tyrell, now of the Kingsguard, be named as his Master-at-Arms. Ironically, when Tommen stands up to his mother and shows assertiveness when she threatens his wife, Cersei's response was to have Ser Boros Blount, again of the Kingsguard, force Tommen to beat his whipping boy Pate till he bleeds from both cheeks.
A Dance with Dragons
Tommen has dinner with his newly released mother and his great-uncle Kevan. He entertains his uncle with the exploits of his kittens and Kevan thinks Tommen a sweet lad.
When I'm King in my own right, I'm going to outlaw beets.
