John of Gaunt whom the House of Lanncaster derived from was a man who made his way rather similar to Tywin. Also (not sure if it was mentioned), but Castle Rock is a nod to Stephen Kings town used in about 8-9 of his books and stories.

Together, Richard and Buckingham spread the rumour that Edward's two sons are illegitimate, and therefore have no rightful claim to the throne; they are assisted by Catesby, Ratcliffe, and Lovell. The other lords are cajoled into accepting Richard as king, in spite of the continued survival of his nephews (the Princes in the Tower
Cersei's children are illegitimate.
Richard asks Buckingham to secure the death of the princes, but Buckingham hesitates. Richard then recruits James TYRRELL
, who kills both children.
HOLY HANDGRENADES! a Tyrell.
