Lord Paramount of the Trident is a title in Game of Thrones. The holder is the head of the Great House of the Riverlands. The title takes its name from the Trident, the main river system of the region. The patriarch of House Tully has held the title since the family was elevated to the position by Aegon I Targaryen in the Wars of Conquest.

When Robb Stark went into open rebellion against the Iron Throne, House Tully joined him. Following the Red Wedding and the end of the Northern Rebellion, House Tully has been dispossessed of all lands and titles. Though House Frey has been granted the lands and castle of Riverrun, regional capital of the Riverlands, House Baelish has been elevated as the Great House of the Riverlands from his seat of Harrenhal. Thus the title is now held by House Baelish of Harrenhal.

Known Lords Paramount of the Trident

  • Lord {Edmyn Tully}, the first Lord Paramount of the Trident
  • Lord {Hoster 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 Petyr Baelish, Lord of Harrenhal

In the books

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.
