- "You've been holding the council meetings in the Tower of the Hand."
- ―King Joffrey Baratheon to Lord Tywin Lannister
The Tower of the Hand is a location within the Red Keep in King's Landing. It serves as the residence of the Hand of the King and his household. Among other rooms, it contains a dining room, the Hand's study, the Hand's bed chamber and connecting corridors and stairways.
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 Hand's solar, located in the Tower, instead of the small council chamber.
Behind the scenes
In the audio commentary track for The North Remembers, D.B. Weiss revealed that falcons representing House Arryn on the wall still remain since neither Ned Stark or Tyrion Lannister have had time to redecorate after Jon Arryn's death.
