“It has been hard for Kevan, living all his life in Tywin’s shadow. It was hard for all my brothers. That shadow Tywin cast was long and black, and each of them had to struggle to find a little sun. Tygett tried to be his own man, but he could never match your father, and that just made him angrier as the years went by. Gerion made japes. Better to mock the game than to play and lose. But Kevan saw how things stood early on, so he made himself a place by your father’s side.”

“And you?” Jaime asked her. 

“It was not a game for girls. I was my father’s precious princess … and Tywin’s too, until I disappointed him. My brother never learned to like the taste of disappointment.” // raúl mérida as young!tywin, todd lasance as young!kevan, holliday grainger as young!genna, judy dench as older genna, simon ginty as tygett, philip winchester as gerion

LANNISTER WEEK | day v - one member (preasoiaf) - Rohanne Webber (Lannister)

Rohanne Webber, known as the Red Widow, was the Lady of Coldmoat and head of House Webber during the reign of King Aerys I Targaryen. She was the daughter of Lord Wyman Webber. Later, she married Lord Gerold Lannister and became Lady of Casterly Rock. She tried hard to appear ferocious to other lords and knights. She was the grandmother of Tywin, Kevan, Gerion, Tygett, Genna, Joanna, Stafford, and Damon Lannister. Lady Rohanne disappeared under mysterious circumstances in 230 AC, less than a year after giving birth to Jason.

Too soon,” Lord Tywin Lannister had declared when word of the king’s choice had reached Casterly Rock. “Connington is too young, too bold, too eager for glory.” (A Dance with Dragons)

His eldest brother left, after making that pronouncement about Jon Connington.

“I seem to remember a certain Hand even younger than Connington. Now, what was his name? Ty … Ty … Tytos? Tygett?” Gerion pretended to ponder, rubbing his chin as if in deep thought.

“Don’t be a fool, Gery,” Kevan admonished.

“What else could he be except a fool?” Tygett scowled. “He japes and he mocks, that is the extent of our little brother. Even in a situation as dire as this, when the realm is at war, he sits there, unperturbed, making his frivolous -

“Ah, the secret to my everlasting charm,” Gerion interrupted, smiling, unperturbed. It drove Tygett to distraction. His third brother was always too easy a target, unlike their eldest brother, unlike the shadow they all labored under. Tywin would not have allowed Gerion the satisfaction. He’d sit there, staring at Gerion with his pale green eyes, judging, always judging, like the Father Above, without feeling the need to waste his breath saying a single word.

“How long are we going to stay silent, when we know Tywin is leading our House down the path of destruction?” Tygett asked, addressing his remark solely to Kevan. “We must choose a side, and we must choose it now. Aerys Targaryen or Robert Baratheon. One of them will win this war eventually, and when he does …”

Kevan placed his hand on Tygett’s shoulder. “Brother, we must have faith. Tywin has never let our House down before.”

“You have too much faith,” Tygett replied. “Unlike you, I am not content to play his second-in-command while Casterly Rock burns down to the ground. I am -”

I am my own man,” Gerion mocked, reciting the words Tygett was too fond of repeating, ponderously.

Tygett made a show of ignoring Gerion completely, but the vein pulsing in his neck told its own story.

“And what will you do, Ty, as your own man?” Kevan asked. “Call the banners behind Tywin’s back and name yourself a traitor to House Lannister? Or offer your service as a sellsword to either side? Which side will you fight for? Both sides seem evenly matched at this point. How can you be certain who will ultimately triumph?” His gaze switched to Gerion, before going back to Tygett. Addressing both his brothers, Kevan said, “ We are none of us simply ’our own man.’ The ties of blood and loyalty restrict our -”

“Freedom,” Gerion hissed, for a moment forgetting to hide his frustration under a layer of hilarity and mockery.

“Our path to recklessness,” Kevan said.

Rohanne Webber was married at ten years old to her father’s squire. He was slain during the Battle of the Redgrass Field in 196 AC, fighting for House Targaryen. Addam also died during the battle, fighting for House Blackfyre, causing Rohanne to develop a grudge against his father. Rohanne’s second husband was old, and died of a chill. Her third husband, Ser Simon Staunton, choked to death on a chicken bone. Her last husband, Ser Rolland Uffering died of the Great Spring Sickness. Before his death, Lord Wyman Webber attempted to marry her to Ser Lucas Longinch, but she refused him. Rohanne later married Lord Gerold Lannister and had four sons with him, twins Tywald and Tion, Tytos, and Jason Lannister. She was the grandmother of Tywin, Kevan, Gerion, Tygett and Genna Lannister. Lady Rohanne disappeared under mysterious circumstances in 230 AC.

anonymous asked:

Do you think you can do a fic about Genna remembering her brothers?

i.

“genna.”  tywin never asks.  the others do when they knock on her door, but tywin always states.  he does not ask her attention–he commands it.

and genna lannister gives it gladly, for tywin is her champion.  she will never forget that.  

“brother?” she asks him, and he shuts the door behind him.  it must be serious, if he would shut the door.

“i have a–ah–question,” he says.  genna waits for him to continue.  but he does not.

“generally one asks questions when one has them, tywin,” genna says, laughing.  he gives her a stern look.  he’s always so stern, even when sternness is unwarranted.  like now.  “come on then.  what is it?”

“if i were to…pursue someone.  woo someone… what flowers should i give her?” 

genna blinks at him, unsure which is more shocking, that tywin would woo, or that he would come to ask her what flowers to give the object of his affection.

“are you in love?” she demands, and watches as his face reddens.  it makes his green eyes even greener, and genna lets out a shriek of delight.  “you are, aren’t you!  well, what’s her favorite flower?  you should probably pick that one.”

“i don’t know what her favorite flower is,” tywin says through gritted teeth.  “don’t you think i hadn’t thought of that?”

“well,” genna says, hands on her hips, “you should find out, tywin.  or else what sort of suitor would you be?”  

she crosses the room and wraps her arms around her brother.  “i hope she’s worthy of you.”

“she is,” tywin says stiffly.  

“and does she love you?”

tywin’s jaw tightens, and genna squeezes him closer.  “she’d best.  or else i shall have something to say about it.”  

when she looks up at tywin again, he is smiling.  he is actually smiling.

Early birthday present for @joannalannister.

 Jeyne Marbrand Lady of the Rock, mama of Tywin, Genna,Kevan, Tygett, and Gerion Lannister. she’s wearing her house colors and Lannister red. Very proud mama. Tywin and his kids get their curls from her. 

need more practice on shading.  Lots of thanks to @sabotensan for helping me with the lines and trimming down what would have been linebacker shoulders if i went with my original draft. 

anonymous asked:

Do you think the Reyne-Tarbeck Rebellion would have been avoided if Tytos Lannister had betrothed Genna to a Reyna or a Tarbeck rather than Emmon Frey?

Thanks for the question, Anon.

No, I don’t, because I don’t think Genna’s betrothal would have satisfied what the Reynes and Tarbecks (specifically Ellyn Reyne, Lady Tarbeck) really wanted - control of and influence over the rule (and ruler) of Casterly Rock. The Reynes had come close, twice, to installing a Reyne scion as the future Lady of the Rock, and under Tion specifically, House Reyne had reached its peak influence. “Officers, honors and lands were showered” upon not only Roger and Reynard Reyne, but also on Reyne uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces. Had Ellyn had a child (with either Tywald or Tion), the Reyne victory would have been complete. Lady Ellyn would have been the obvious choice to be regent should poor Tywald or Tion have perished before little Lannister was 16, but even if the child had lived to his (or her) majority, the position of the lady mother to a paramount ruler is one of huge potential influence (so long as she didn’t go all Isabella of France, but then Ellyn was probably too clever to do anything like that). The Reynes would have a permanent sphere of influence around the new Lord Lannister (need we forget the presence of the brothers Woodville or Seymour around their respective nephews?), and with that would come the opportunity to grant more lands and honors on Reyne-Tarbeck relations.

Genna simply would not have given them anything close to that. At best, Genna would have given the Reynes a lesser blood claim to Casterly Rock, but even they would be hard-pressed to skip Tywin, Kevan, Tygett, and Gerion in the succession, or convince other westerlands Houses to do so. Depending on whom she married (a Reyne or Tarbeck heir might require her to make her seat at Castamere or Tarbeck Hall), she might have been invited to live at the Rock with her husband (as she does IOTL with Emmon Frey), but again, there is little to no opportunity there to influence father Tytos or brother Tywin, certainly not as naturally as a mother might influence her son. Certainly as well, I think Tywin would expect Genna and her Reyne/Tarbeck husband to support a very pro-Lannister household; their children might be surnamed “Reyne” or “Tarbeck”, but they’d have to know that they were Lannisters first (and indeed, given OTL Genna’s Lannister-ness, I think she would enforce this herself). Her marriage would not lead to the exploitation of Casterly Rock for the benefit of Tarbeck Hall or Castamere, and this was the central tension of the Reyne-Tarbeck Rebellion.

House Webber once Lords of Coldmoat, sworn to House Rowan

House Webber is a noble house from Coldmoat in the Reach, their blazon is a black field with a spotted spider on a silver web. The Webbers once ruled from Coldmoat however lost their lands to House Osgrey (the original owners of the castle) when Lady Rohanne Webber married Eustace Osgrey. Lady Rohanne was the Lady of Coldmoat and head of House Webber during the reign of King Aerys I Targaryen. 

Rohanne was known as the Red Widow, she out lived 5 husbands, and the smallfolk began suggesting she was a witch. Eventually she married Ser Eustace Osgrey so that her lands would not be passed to her cousin, and this allowed Osgrey to claim Coldmoat once again. Eustace being much older than Rohanne died long before her.

Rohanne later married Lord Gerold Lannister and had four sons with him, twins Tywald and Tion, Tytos, and Jason Lannister. She was the grandmother of Tywin, Kevan, Gerion, Tygett, Genna, Joanna, Stafford, and Damon Lannister. She later disappeared under mysterious circumstances 

takingturnsatrandom  asked:

Could you explain the war of the nine penny kings? I know it happened relatively recently, and involved maelys blackfyre, but I'm not really sure about the why/who/where of the incident

Well, recently is a relative term, it happened in 260 AL during the reign of Jaehaerys II, so it’s 40 years prior to the start of the series, so you had to be at least in your early fifties to have seen action in the war and still be around to talk about it.

Maelys Blackfyre, along with an assorted group of rogues, decided on making a fortune for themselves, and using the Golden Company, took over the disputed lands. After that, they toppled the Archon of Tyrosh and installed one of their own, a merchant prince named Alequo, as the new ruler. Then, they took over the Stepstones as a staging area to use against Westeros, looking to attack using Maelys’s claim through Daemon Blackfyre. Maelys was the last male-line descendant of Daemon Blackfyre, so according to Targaryen agnatic-style succession, he’d be the only one left to push the Blackfyre claim.

Westeros had thought the Free Cities would take care of it, but when it didn’t, King Jaehaerys II dispatched an expeditionary force to the island that was made up of many of the great lords from across Westeros. This war is unique in that Westeros, for perhaps the first and only time, is fighting as a truly pan-Westerosi force. Seemingly every region of Westeros sent fighters to win glory, and even the Ironborn under Quellon Greyjoy sent a hundred longships. You had Brynden “Blackfish” Tully, Ormund Baratheon and his son Steffon, grandfather and father to Robert, Stannis, and Renly, Lord Baelish, Littlefinger’s father, Tywin, Kevan, and Tygett Lannister (Gerion was too young), and presumably Jon Arryn, Lord Tyrell (presumably Luthor, but we don’t know), and Lord Stark (again, presumably Rickard, but we don’t know), since it’s mentioned that the regional Warden titles were activated.

It was hard fighting, and Ormund Baratheon was among the first casualties of the war, dying in the arms of his son Steffon. But eventually, Barristan Selmy rode out and defeated Maelys in single combat. This is actually an impressive feat, Maelys was said to be so strong that he could kill a horse by punching it in the face. Barristan was rewarded by being named to the Kingsguard the next time a slot became available.

The political implications of the War of the Ninepenny Kings were enormous, because it meant that a lot of people of Westeros came into close, continuous contact with each other, and “fast friendships” were forged as a result. Peoples that might never have ever interacted with each other bonded around a campfire, swapping regional tales and jokes with each other, and it created a sense of cultural unity, so much so that after this war, the lords that took part in it had a much higher degree of inter-regional fosterages and marriage alliances. Jon Arryn fostered Robert Baratheon and Eddard Stark, Hoster Tully fostered Petyr Baelish, Rickard Stark betrothed his heir Brandon to Catelyn Tully, his daughter Lyanna to Robert Baratheon. If you believe the Southron Ambitions theory (and I certainly do) this could mean that the Great House lords were looking to build a larger power bloc in the wake of a weakening monarchy, or if you don’t, then it could have been a natural extension of their battlefield friendship.

Thanks for the question, Random. I hope this helps you understand the War of the Ninepenny Kings.

What lady Rohanne Webber would have worn, Andrew Gn

Lady Rohanne Webber, better known as the Red Widow (for all the husbands she outlived) was the Lady of Coldmoat and head of House Webber during the reign of King Aerys I Targaryen. She was short, with red hair and freckles.
As a child Lady Rohanne was very fond of young Addam Osgrey, who’s family were rivals with hers, her father quickly squashed the romance and Rohanne was married at ten years old to her father’s squire who was slain during the Battle of the Redgrass Field in 196 AC, fighting for House Targaryen. Addam also died during the battle, fighting for House Blackfyre, causing Rohanne to develop a grudge against his father. Rohanne’s second husband was old, and died of a chill. Her third husband, Ser Simon Staunton, choked to death on a chicken bone. Her next husband, Ser Rolland Uffering died of the Great Spring Sickness., leaving her a widow during the tale of The Sworn Sword. Later after an intervention form Ser Duncan the Tall she married Eustace Osgrey the father of her childhood crush, however she eventually outlived him too. Her last husband was Lord Gerold Lannister, lord of Casterly Rock. Together they had four sons, twins Tywald and Tion, Tytos, and Jason Lannister. She was the grandmother of Tywin, Kevan, Gerion, Tygett and Genna Lannister and great grandmother of Cersei, Jaime and Tyrion. She disappeared under mysterious circumstances in 230 AC.
