Renly Baratheon's Game of Thrones
The Lord Oaf of Highgarden.
Lord of Highgarden, Warden of the South.
He is married to Alerie Hightower. His children are Willas Tyrell, Garlan Tyrell, Margaery Tyrell and Loras Tyrell.
He fell victim to the Red Pox, which directly led to Renly’s direct intervention against the disease, eventually causing it to die out. He did not outlive his mother.
Described as an oaf by his own mother, Mace Tyrell is nevertheless one of the most powerful men in Westeros. He carries the allegiance of the whole Reach, the most populous area in Westeros, and trade has made his House wealthy. He is the keystone of Renly’s claim to the throne; if House Tyrell falters, then Renly’s claim may crumble with it.
