- "Seeing both the threat and... opportunity the Targaryens represented, Loren wisely surrendered, and aided Aegon in his further conquest of Westeros. The Lannisters were thus appointed Lords Paramount of the Westerlands and Wardens of the West... titles we hold to this day."
- ―Tywin Lannister
Loren Lannister, also known as Loren I, is an unseen character in Game of Thrones. He is deceased when the series begins.
However, Aegon unleashed his three dragons, Vhagar, Meraxes and Balerion the Black Dread against the combined might of the Kingdoms of the Reach and the Rock. Four thousand men perished, consumed in a "field of fire," including King Mern. Seeing he had no chance of victory, King Loren bent the knee to Aegon and gave up his crown. He was named Lord Paramount of the Westerlands and Warden of the West.
