So who's lord now? Edit
Tywin's dead. Jaime foreswore the title and was disinherited anyways. Tyrion is on the run. Is Cersei now Lady of Casterly Rock? Kevan? He hasn't been seen since the second season. I also don't remember Jaime mentioning him when talking to Tywin about a deal. TheUnknown285 (talk) 03:08, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
Mild spoilers, but with Jaime a Kingsguard and unable to inherit, and with Tyrion fleeing to the Free Cities, Cersei is and becomes the new head of House Lannister. May the gods have more mercy on them than they did their enemies.
No, Kevan wouldn't inherit. Inheritance goes until a sibling's "bloodline" is exhausted, even through a daughter.
Technically, though Tyrion has fled into exile he considers himself the heir of Casterly Rock....though at the moment, of course, he's been disinherited as a kinslayer and Cersei is the one actively ruling.
That's the irony, you see: Cersei won! Robert's dead, Eddard Stark is dead, Robb, Renly, they're all gone! Joffrey was uncontrollable. Now even Tywin is dead, and Tyrion is gone from Westeros:
There is nothing to stand in the way of Cersei's hold on power anymore. Her weak-willed boy-king of a son is maybe 12 and utterly pliable, and she's back to being the active regent.
While the heir to the westerlands is certainly disputed I'm not sure the heir to House Lannister is, especially as Tommen and Myrcella are legally Baratheons that should rule them out of becoming head of a different house, Jaime is in the Kingsguard and Tyrion is a wanted criminal. if you think about it this page is just about who is next in line to become the head of House Lannister and that would be Kevan Lannister wouldn't it? -Gboy4 (talk) 06:35, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps, but this isn't the talk page of Casterly Rock, this is the talk page of House Lannister, and unless the true parentage is revealed Tommen would not be the head of House Lannister anymore than Roose Bolton would be the head of House Stark.--Gboy4 (talk) 06:43, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
It's an open question when a member of a family becomes king how the original family lands will be inherited (we're not sure if Robert wanted to add the Stormlands to the Crownlands, or give them to one of his brothers).
YES, Casterly Rock and House Lannister are one and the same thing. Roose Bolton is lord of the Dreadfort, he seized Winterfell - that's a terrible analogy to use.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 07:15, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
Improvements to the page Edit
Two improvements for an admin to make to this page since it is locked:
- Re-upload the same main picture but better quality (it seems fuzzy around the lion).
- Change "realise" (Season 1, paragraph 8) to "realize" because American English is to be used on the wiki rather than British English.
