Who is Jason Lannister?

During the reign of King Viserys Targaryen, Jason Lannister was the Lord of Casterly Rock and head of House Lannister. On the other hand, his younger twin brother Tyland Lannister served as a member of the Small Council of King Viserys. The twin brothers are the ancestor of GOT’s Lord Tywin Lannister and his family.

On the TV show, Jason came into the spotlight when he found princess Rhaneyra alone and approached her for marriage. However, his marriage proposal wasn’t fruitful as the princess rejected it. After that, Jason also visits the king himself with the proposal as he doesn’t take Rhanerya’s decision seriously. The king doesn’t force his daughter as his new wife Alicent convinced him to let Rhaenyra choose a worthy husband for herself.

Taking the rejection as a humiliation, Jason stood against Rhaenyra’s claim for the Iron Throne, supporting the Greens in the Dance of Dragons.
