House Tyrell is a major gothic House that resides in the Kingdom of Lucerne city of Tree Hill, as well as controlling as their own the town of Highgarden, and the acting Arch Duke of the State of The Reach. House Tyrell was once the most powerful house inside the Valley of Lucerne but they for a long time traded being the vassal of one house to another of which they spent time as the vassal of House Scott a position that they do not at all enjoy, but this begin to change as they took control of The Reach through their seat in Highgarden. It is currently led by Mace Tyrell II. of whom is known throughout the kingdom as a weak willed man, but who in his own lands has done great things despite this reputation. House Tyrell is the Lord of the state of Highgarden, and from here they dominate a wide swathe of eastern Lucerne and are one of the richest houses in terms of actual wealth and population. 

The motto of House Tyrell is "Growing Strong" of which is a motto based on the fact that they have attempted to always grow their family with strength. House Tyrell is thought by many to be no better then a House Lannister in that they basically appear to have no morals when it comes to anything other then protecting their own house. The coat of arms of House Tyrell is a golden rose that is arrayed over a green field and this has to do with the ancient homeland of the Goth people.

House Tyrell are Gothic, and they have been one of the most powerful Gothic Houses inside the Kingdom of Lucerne since their rise before the Driving Tide. Members of the family tend to have curly brown hair and brown or golden eyes, and this is a unique part of their ethnic qualities.

It is currently led by Mace Tyrell II of whom has led the house since the death of his father Olenna Tyrell of whom was a menipulative man that has tarnished much of the reputation which might have seemed difficult after the behavior of his father Mastir Tyrell who destroyed House Targaryan. Mace's oldest son in the form of Willas Tyrell of whom is an extremely intelligent leader of whom was crippled as a child while fighting on horseback. His third son Loras is a noted tournament knight and was the lover of Kristen Trachtenberg before the First Battle of Tree Hill. Despite this control the members of House Tyrell are still the vassals of House Scott, and are forced to watch as they are now the equal level as several of their old vassals and being led by their old knightly house in House Scott.

While House Tyrell does have an estate inside the city of Tree Hill it also maintains a tight control over the port of Highgarden to the southeast of Tree Hill and is the seat of their control of the State of The Reach. Many members of Tree Hill that survived the Fall of Tree Hill did so because they were at Highgarden during the conflict. Highgarden was once just a mighty castle, but it has grown throughout the swamp lands it inhabits to the point that it now dominates several villages, and has the town of Highgarden sprawling around it. In Highgarden the true strength of House Tyrell lies, and it is their control of Highgarden that has made them extremely rich and influencial. Following the rise of William Lovie III. the vast expanses that were once simply known as Highgarden were broken up into several new provinces of which added together created the State of Highgarden of which fell within the Grand State of Tree Hill.

For the earliest history of the Valley of Lucerne post the destruction of Numeron, and the Great Migration House Tyrell controlled the city of Forks which was the only major city of the valley. During the events of the Driving Tide House Tyrell followed their loyal vassal house Lovie in their campaign to save the Dwarves of Lucerne, but discovered following the conflict that House Lovie was in control now of the entire valley. They held the city of Forks following the founding of the Kingdom of Lucerne, but the leadership of of William Lovie led to the conquering of that town after House Tyrell's leadership surrendered rather then be destroyed by the Dragon of William Lovie. They remained in Forks very briefly before they accompanied House Targaryan to Tree Hill. They became a vassal House of House Targaryan before they caused the destruction of House Targaryan and then from their hoped they would be named the new Lord of Tree Hill but instead watched as James Lovie gave that honor to the upstart House Scott. Following this slight House Tyrell would begin to spend more time building up Highgarden especially after Mace Tyrell II. was placed in charge of the town while his father Olenna stayed in Tree HIll and continued to control their powerbase there.

History

Tyrell

Early History

The members of House Tyrell were originally made up of Goths who are a germanic tribe originally from Kizlev. They were some of the first to flee modern day Kizlev, and bypassed The Empire, and made almost a straight route towards the Valley of Lucerne.

Because of this straight direction they were one of the first germanic houses to enter Forks, and in this way they were larger then the others when they arrived as well. As the largest house they made sure to gain the loyalty of any house that wished to enter the city, and if you were not loyal then you could go elsewhere. In this way they had nine vassal houses by the time of Driving Tide.

Kingdom Of Lucerne

Main Article : Kingdom of Lucerne

With the Lovie Family now in charge of the Kingdom , and House Swan becoming the dominent figure in Forks, House Tyrell was at a crossroads. They wanted to retain the power they once had but didn't see that as possible in Forks. This belief led them to moving to Tree Hill . This decision was once again a bad long term decision by House Tyrell, as it would eventually lead to their destruction in the Fall of Tree Hill. During their time in Tree Hill they watched bitterly as William Lovie placed House Targaryan into the position of Lord of the city, and in this way they were one more time ignored in favor of personal relationships on the part of House Lovie.

Following the liberation he has spent his time further expanding the military might of House Tyrell, and he has personally begin using this strength to improve the reputation of House Tyrell. When the Civil War became more known to the people of Lucerne he personally travelled to Lucerne where he swore himself to Andrew, and promised the men of House Tyrell would stand beside him in any conflict that he required assistence with. This promise was something that meant a lot to Andrew and because of this promise when the Battle of Berne started in its planning phases House Tyrell was sent a request to join the army. This alone was a huge deal since following the Fall of House Targaryan and before that the events between the two houses during the Driving Tide the two houses had never been close.
