Olenna Tyrell

Olenna Tyrell

Matriarch of House Tyrell, Lady Olenna is not shy about sharing her opinions. She fought tirelessly to free her grandchildren from prison, even after discovering the High Sparrow was incorruptible. After Cersei's act of war killed Margaery and Loras, Olenna traveled to Dorne, where she entered into an alliance with Ellaria Sand in support of the Targaryen cause.

Mace Tyrell

Mace Tyrell

Lord of Highgarden, Warden of the South, and father to Queen Margaery, Mace Tyrell served as Master of Ships on the Small Council. When Cersei took charge of the Council, she added Master of Coin to his responsabilities and sent Mace to Braavos to renegotiate the kingdom's terms with the Iron Bank. He returned to find Margaery and Loras imprisoned, and worked with the Lannisters to rally Tyrell forces to free them. Along with his children, he was killed when the Sept of Baelor exploded.

Margaery Tyrell

Margaery Tyrell

Mace Tyrell's only daughter, Margaery, was a clever as she was beautiful. Widowed by both Renly Baratheon and King Joffrey, she married Joffrey's brother, Tommen, in an effort to maintain an alliance between the Tyrells and the Lannisters. She was taken into custody for bearing false witness before the gods when she lied to defend her brother Loras against accusations of perversion. After forming a relationship with the High Sparrow, Margaery persuaded her husband to accept an alliance between the Crown and the Faith. She later convinced her brother Loras to confess his crimes and swear off his inheritance at his trial in exchange for his freedom. She was among those killed when the Sept of Baelor exploded.

Loras Tyrell

Loras Tyrell

The handsome young Ser Loras was the secret lover of Renly Baratheon, for whom he served as Kingsguard. After Renly's murder, Loras unknowingly took a spy for Littlefinger, Olyvar, as his lover, though Loras was obligated to marry Cersei Lannister. Cersei engineered her fiancé's arrest by the Faith Militant to undermine the Tyrell's influence in Kings Landing. The arrest of the heir of Highgarden also ansnared his sister the queen, whi was imprisoned for perjuring herself to protect him. Physically and emotionally broken in prison, Loras led guilty to the Faith's charges against him and agreed to renounce the Tyrell name. He was among those killed when the Sept of Baelor exploded.

Game of Thrones House Tyrell

House Tyrell

  • House Tyrell
  • For centuries, the Tyrells served and occasionally intermarried with House Gardener, the ancient family of the King of the Reach. But after the Targaryen conquest eliminated the Gardeners, the Tyrells bent the knee to the Iron Throne; and then rose to become principal house and Warden of the South. They allied with the Lannisters until Cersei Lannister blew the Sept of Baelor, killing Lord Mace, Queen Margaery, and the heir to House Tyrell, Loras. After the death of her grandchildren Olenna Tyrell entered into an alliance with Ellaria Sand in support of the Targaryen cause. House Tyrell was ended by Jamie Lannister, who executed Olenna when his army took Highgarden.

  • ➲ Highgarden
  • Highgarden was the seat of House Tyrell and the regional capital of the Reach. Located on the banks of the river Mander, Highgarden sits astride the Roseroad, a major thoroughfare linking Oldtown and King's Landing. Highgarden also forms the southern terminus of the the Searoad, which leads to Lannisport. As King's Landing, Oldtown, and Lannisport are the first, second, and third largest cities in the realm, heavy trade and traffic across a large swath of southern Westeros ultimately passes through Highgarden. The golden roses and green fields that surround Highgarden serves as the inspiration for the Tyrell sigil and heraldry. In Tyrell possession since Aegon's Conquest, more than three centuries ago, Highgarden was captured and sacked by forces of House Lannister and House Tyrell's formerly loyal vassals House Tarly, with its resources plundered, in the name of Queen Cersei Lannister. With the death of Lady Olenna Tyrell, the castle's ownership is uncertain.

  • ➲ The Reach
  • The Reach is one of the administrative regions of the Seven Kingdoms, and was formerly a sovereign nation known as the Kingdom of the Reach before the Targaryen conquest. Geographically, it is one of the larger regions of the Seven Kingdoms, ranking as the second largest in area, behind only the vastness of the North. It has been ruled by House Tyrell since the Conquest, and earlier than that by the Kings of House Gardener.

    It is the most fertile part of Westeros, blessed with vast, blooming fields of crops and flowers, and numerous and well-populated villages and towns; it traditionally helps supply other less fertile parts of the Seven Kingdoms (most notably King's Landing) with grain, fruit, wine and livestock. The Reach is also the most heavily-populated part of Westeros and is one of the richest, second only to the Westerlands, ruled by House Lannister. However this claim is suggested to be rather outdated as Lannister gold mines—the source of their wealth—have dried out, and have been weakened by the War of the Five Kings, thus making the Reach actually the wealthiest region. Due to this, the Tyrells could traditionally field the largest army in the Seven Kingdoms, almost as large as the armies from two of the other populous kingdoms combined. This vast supply of manpower, land, and food production gives the Reach enormous strategic value during the War of the Five Kings.

    The Reach withdrew from the sovereignty of the Iron Throne due to the deaths of virtually all its liege lords in the destruction of the Great Sept of Baelor, an act perpetrated by Cersei Lannister, who quickly became Queen due to the resulting suicide of King Tommen Baratheon.

    After the battle and the ultimate death of Lady Olenna Tyrell, House Tarly was made Warden of the South for its betrayal of its liege lords for what Jaime Lannister had described as allying with "foreign barbarians and eunuchs." Thus the Reach was presumably briefly controlled by the Lannister-Tarly houses, before their host was smashed in the Battle of the Goldroad, leaving the region in an ambiguous status and likely a power vacuum. Before their defeat at the Goldroad, the Lannister-Tarly alliance had the time to plunder supplies from throughout the Reach. These were completely destroyed during battle, meaning that this normally fertile, breadbasket region could face famine in the coming winter.

    With the death of the Tarly line, leadership of the Reach is most likely under dispute between forces loyal to Houses Lannister or Targaryen. Bastards born in the Reach are given the surname Flowers. People of the Reach are collectively known as Reachmen.
