"You've been holding the council meetings in the Tower of the Hand."
―King Joffrey Baratheon to Lord Tywin Lannister[src]

During his short tenure as Hand of the King, Eddard Stark takes residence in the tower alongside his daughters Sansa and Arya.

Tyrion Lannister takes up residence in the tower when he assumes the role of Hand of the King. Secretly, he also installs his lover Shae with him,[1] until she's discovered by Varys.[2]

Tyrion also has dinner with Janos Slynt in the Tower before exiling him to the Night's Watch. Cersei visits Tyrion in his bed chamber to confront him about his treatment of Slynt.[3]

Season 3 Edit

After assuming the mantle of Hand of the King, Tywin Lannister takes residence in the Tower. He also has small council meetings take place in the Tower instead of the small council chamber.[4][5]

Season 4 Edit

Before fleeing the city, Tyrion Lannister sneaks into the Tower, where he strangles his former lover Shae, and then kills his father Tywin with a crossbow while he is on the privy.[6]

Behind the scenesEdit
