He’s me, Jaime realized suddenly. I am speaking to myself, as I was, all cocksure arrogance and empty chivalry. This is what is does to you, to be too good too young.

“The whole realm denies it from Dorne to the Wall. Old men deny it with their death rattle and unborn children deny it in their mothers’ wombs. No one wants you for their king. You never wanted any friends, brother, but a man without friends is a man without power.”
That arrow hit too close to the mark. “I learned from the White Bull and Barristan the Bold,” Jaime snapped. “I learned from Ser Arthur Dayne, the Sword of the Morning, who could have slain all five of you with his left hand while he was taking with a piss with the right. I learned from Prince Lewyn of Dorne and Ser Oswell Whent and Ser Jonothor Darry, good men every one.”
“Dead men, every one.”

House Tyrell of Highgarden is one of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms, overlords over the Reach. A large, wealthy house, its wealth is only surpassed among the Great Houses by House Lannister, and the Tyrells can field the greatest armies. Additionally, if they call the fleets of their bannermen the Redwynes, the lords of the Shield Islands, and the coastal lords, they can command a navy that equals if not surpasses the royal fleet.
Highgarden is an ancient seat of rule and the heart of chivalry in the Seven Kingdoms; the Tyrells style themselves ‘Defenders of the Marches’ and ‘High Marshals of the Reach’, and traditionally, they have been Wardens of the South. Their sigil is a golden rose on a green field, and their words are “Growing Strong.” Members of the family tend to have curly brown hair and brown or golden eyes.
