Was Reynard Reyne’s cunning all a lie?

Recommended Posts

So Reynard Reyne’s cunning is widely spoken of, but it really seems misplaced since the only person he dupes is the infamously naive Tytos Lannister, while he tries to make a deal with Tywin with no leverage. Doesn’t sound like he’s smart.

We know literally next to nothing about the character and what he did in the 30-40 years of his life.

If historical records say he was known for his cunning we can assume there are reasons for that. It is a shorthand way for GRRM to give us some flavor to a minor character.

 

Also he had leverage. Castamere being flooded was not thought of as an option. He was under the impression that he could wait Tywin out, that them holding the Reynes under siege indefinitely would weaken them in the process.
