"I plan to make you Lord of the Riverlands."

Lord Paramount of the Trident or Lord Paramount of the Riverlands[1][2] is the title held by the head of the Great House of the Riverlands. The title takes its name from the Trident, the main river system of the region. Traditionally, the patriarch of House Tully held the title since the family was elevated to the position by Aegon I Targaryen in the Wars of Conquest.

When King Robb Stark went into open rebellion against the Iron Throne, House Tully joined him due to the attacks on their lands from House Lannister and because of their familial ties. Following the Red Wedding and the end of the Northern rebellion, House Tully has been dispossessed of all lands and titles. House Frey, one of the main participants in the Red Wedding, has been granted the castle and lands of Riverrun and elevated as the Great House of the Riverlands.

Known Lords Paramount of the TridentEdit

  • Lord {Edmyn Tully}, the first Lord Paramount of the Trident.
  • Lord {Hoster Tully}, the father of Edmure, Catelyn, and Lysa Tully.
  • Lord Edmure Tully, acting Lord Paramount for several years due to his father's illness. Rejected the title when his family rebelled against the Iron Throne, during which time his father finally died of his illness. Thus he was never technically Lord Paramount in his own right. Later captured by forces loyal to the Iron Throne during the betrayal of the Red Wedding.
  • Lord {Walder Frey}, the head of House Frey, who betrayed their liege lords at the Red Wedding and were made the Lords of Riverrun and Lords Paramount of the Trident by the Iron Throne.
  • It is unclear who currently holds the title after the death of Lord Walder Frey.

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Freys assumed that they would be made the new Lords Paramount of the Trident as a reward for the Red Wedding. The Lannisters did promise them rule of Riverrun itself, but snubbed the Freys by giving the title to Petyr Baelish. Littlefinger, meanwhile, hasn't even set foot in the war-torn Riverlands, and simply let the region rot and its people starve while he continued his plotting in the capital and the Vale.
