When I came upon the chapter where Tyrion asked Tywin about his rights for the Casterly Rock. I can't help to think when he said that Jaime took the cloak 15 years ago. It was said on two previous books that Jaime was 15 when he took the Kingsguard.

So I did i bit of computing. And i deduced that Cersei and Jaime's age are about 30? And for Tyrion, since he was nine years younger than his two older siblings, would it not make him 21? (and If I am not mistaken, there is a chapter in GoT where Tyrion says something about a horse that was giving on his 23rd name day by Jaime)

Any thoughts?

My understanding is that Jaime/Cersei are mid 30's and Tyrion is 26 or 27

from A Wiki of Ice and Fire

Cersei Lannister: born in 266AL, at Casterly Rock
Jaime Lannister: born in 266AL, at Casterly Rock
Tyrion Lannister: born in 274AL, at Casterly Rock

the first novel begins in the year 298 AL (After Landing) and continues for many months, probably into the early months of 299 AL.
