In The Books

In the Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Tyrell is a powerful noble house. The Reach is the most populous region of the Seven Kingdoms and the Tyrells can field the largest army on the continent, although the Lannisters, being richer, can better-equip their troops. This makes the Tyrells formidable enemies but excellent allies.

Before King Aegon I Targaryen’s invasion, the Tyrells were stewards to House Gardner, the Kings of the Reach. The Tyrells had responsibility for maintaining the castle of Highgarden, the seat of royal power in the Reach. In the battle known as the Field of Fire, King Mern IX Gardner and all of his issue were slaughtered by Aegon’s dragons. Harlen Tyrell, King Mern’s steward, surrendered Hightower to King Aegon and was rewarded with the title Lord of the Reach. House Florent of Brightwater Keep, which claims a superior blood-relationship to the Gardners and the first King of the Reach, Garth Greenhand, has long disputed the suitability of the Tyrells to the title.
