100+ Famous Tyrion Lannister Quotes

Who is Tyrion Lannister?

Tyrion Lannister is the youngest of the three living Lannister children. He is kind, intelligent, and witty, but is often underestimated based on his stature. He inherited a shrewd mind from his father Tywin and has a dry, often dark sense of humor.

Tyrion Lannister is a dwarf and the youngest son of Tywin Lannister and Joanna Lannister. He is the brother of Cersei, Jaime, and the late Renly Baratheon and the father to a number of children. He is a lord of Casterly Rock and also Warden of the West. Tyrion Lannister was born in Casterly Rock

Tyrion Lannister is one of the most complex characters in the Game of Thrones TV series. He has been raised as a weapon, he has no love or respect for himself, and he is constantly fighting against his fate.

When confronted with his brother’s contemptuous glare, Tyrion’s response is to point out the similarities between them. Where Jaime has a handsome face, Tyrion has “a nose like mine, only not as highborn.” He has killed his father and is “Queen Cersei’s son.”

Although he admits he is not enough like Jaime to share his portion of “this golden life,” Tyrion seems to believe it is not too late for him to change it.

He claims to be the smartest man in Westeros and this is evidenced by his time as Hand of the King to Joffrey Baratheon. Tyrion is a dwarf and is often mistreated because of how he looks.

He possesses a very sharp mind which he uses to mock and insult others. He is skilled in battle which is evident in his time leading an impromptu force to battle Stannis Baratheon’s forces at Blackwater.
