When I read this Game of Thrones Quotes collection, I've asked myself which qutes from the show are my favorite. And of course, they all come from the House Lannister.
House Lannister is one of the Great Houses of Westeros, one of its richest and most powerful families and oldest dynasties. They used to rule the Westerlands as the Kings of the Rock before swearing allegiance to the Targaryen family. They have since served the Targaryens and now King Robert Baratheon as the Wardens of the West.
House Lannister’s symbol is a golden lion on a crimson background, and their house motto is “Hear Me Roar!”. Their unofficial motto, which is as well known as the official one is “A Lannister Always Pays His Debts”.
Sworn to House Lannister
The Lannisters also command a modest fleet, berthed at Lannisport. The fleet was largely destroyed at anchor during the Greyjoy Rebellion in a pre-emptive strike led by Balon Greyjoy’s brothers.
My best quotes by Tyrion Lannister are:
Tywin is by far my favorite character in the show. Here is selection of my favorite Game of Thrones quotes by the big guy:
Lannisters In the books
In the Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Lannister was established many thousands of years prior to the books’ opening by a trickster-hero called Lann the Clever, who tricked the powerful Casterly family into abandoning their stronghold of Casterly Rock, which the Lannisters took for their own. The Lannisters have ruled the region known as the Westerlands ever since, getting rich of the many gold and silver mines in the western hills and mountains.
During Robert’s Rebellion, the Lannisters sat out most of the war, refusing to heed the calls of King Aerys II Targaryen to aid him in crushing the rebellion. After the rebel victory at the Battle of the Trident, the Lannister army marched to the relief of King’s Landing but, instead of helping defend the city, they brutally sacked it, killing King Aerys and his grandchildren.
Robert Baratheon publicly forgave the Lannisters their actions and accepted their allegiance, marrying Cersei Lannister in thanks for Tywin’s assistance. However, Eddard Stark saw the Lannister action as betrayal and murder, and has not trusted them ever since.
