** [[spoiler: At the end of season 6 Cersie blows up the Great Sept of Balore with wildfire with all of her political rivals inside it. While this does put her in control of the city it turns what is left of the country against her. The Reach and Dorne have joined forces with Deanerys and her invading armies. The North and Vale have declared independence under the new King in the North Jon Snow. With the death of Walder Frey and his two most prominent sons the Riverlands can't be counted on for support. Even the Westerlands are suspect since one of the people she killed was her uncle Kevin, the ruler of the Westerlands]].

** [[spoiler: At the end of season 6 Cersie 6, House Lannister becomes the current ruling house of Westeros after Cersei blows up the Great Sept of Balore with Baelor using wildfire with all of her political rivals inside it. While this does put action places her in control of the city Iron Throne, it turns what is left of the country against her. The Reach and Dorne have joined forces with Deanerys and her invading armies. The North and Vale have declared independence under the new King in the North North, Jon Snow. With the death of Walder Frey and his two most prominent sons the Riverlands can't be counted on for support.

* TheEmpire: Sort of. They want to bring all the regions under Lannister control or at least influence by marrying into each of the Great Houses or, when not possible, by placing men loyal to them.

* TheEmpire: Sort of. They want to bring all the regions under Lannister control or at least influence by marrying into each of the Great Houses or, when not possible, by placing men loyal to them. They come close to pulling this off after winning the War of Five Kings but after Tywin dies their control falls apart very quickly.

** As of the Season 6 finale, [[spoiler:Cersei's actions alienated the Reach to side with Dorne and Daenarys Targaryen. Then, House Bolton is extinguished by the joint forces of surviving loyal Northern houses under Jon Snow and the Knights of the Vale and Walder Frey is assassinated by Arya Frey, freeing the Riverlands from the Freys' control. And with the last Targaryen coming to Westeros to reclaim her right for the Iron Throne, the Lannister regime will not last long]].

* BoringButPractical: The Lannisters don't have warging powers like the Stark children, or dragons like the Targaryens, or even the power of a god like the Lord of Light. What the Lannisters do have, however, is gold. Gold that they parlay into tremendous military and political power to support their family legacy. Indeed, the Lannisters tend be serious skeptics about all things magical and are not easily intimidated by news of dragons rising in the east.
** Of course, the problem with gold is that you can only mine so much of it. In Season 4, Tywin reveals that their last mine went dry just before the War of the Five Kings, meaning their primary source of income is gone.

** While his insistence on the importance of family doesn't work out in practice, it is demonstrated in the show that the strong families are the ones that survive. The Tyrells are strong because they are just as dedicated to family and have good interpersonal relationships, while the Lannisters have fallen from grace because Tywin was a terrible father to his children. The [[spoiler:Boltons]] are pretty much extinct because the head of the house is a sociopath incapable of planning long-term while the Stark are still hanging on thanks to faily ties.
