- "My husband, the late Lord Luthor. He managed to ride off a cliff whilst hawking. They say he was looking up the sky and paid no mind to where his horse was taking him."
- ―Lady Olenna Tyrell
Luthor Tyrell is an unseen character in Game of Thrones. He is deceased when the events of the series begin and is not expected to appear in the series. He was mentioned by his widow Olenna Tyrell in "Dark Wings, Dark Words".
Lord Luthor's widow, Lady Olenna, describes her late husband to Sansa Stark as "an oaf". She explains that her husband died when he rode over a cliff while hawking. He had been looking up and not paying attention to where his horse was going. She used the incident as a metaphor for the Tyrells' alliance with the Lannisters.
