Each year, leading business magazine Forbes, publishes a list of the richest fifteen fictional characters, using various criteria. And this year, for the first time ever, the Lord of Casterly Rock, Tywin Lannister, has entered the list. According to analysis from Forbes, Lord Tywin is worth $2.1 billion. How did they come to that conclusion? Beats me, but being put on the list—alongside Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, and Richie Rich, among others—is certainly yet another example of Game of Thrones entering the cultural zeitgeist.
And speaking of that, so is this from last night’s South Park episode.
Thanks to fiendebass for pointing out Tywin’s presence on this year’s list.
