Kehlmann renders this world with an extraordinarily delicate and vivid touch, fixing on just those details that seem to capture the differences from our own: almost ubiquitous hunger, superstition and the oppressive beauty of nature. Above all, he shows the pain of attachment in a world where war, disease and starvation make existence so tenuous.
But Tyll is a very funny novel, too, with a Monty Pythonesque fascination for absurd hierarchies, court protocol and the status games played by egotistical participants at peace conferences. In this bleak world, the figure of Tyll himself is a tonic both to the audiences he entertains and to the reader. He stands at an angle to his era: in it, but never fully of it, looking at everything with a beady, mocking eye, like an avatar for a sceptical modern sensibility.
And whereas the Tyll of the original German chapbooks is a one-dimensional provocateur, in the novel he becomes a fully realised character whose ability to see through the cant of his era has been bought at terrible personal cost. The book also stealthily and elegantly feeds you just enough exposition to whet your curiosity about the historical figures and events it depicts.

At a school board meeting, the teacher was identified as Gabriel Gipe. Thus the relationships between Lord Mace and his children, and between siblings like Loras and Margaery , are genuine and uncomplicated. Loras suggests to his lover Renly that the Tyrells would support a claim for the Iron Throne made by Renly with all of their formidable military and economic might.
Renly is initially reluctant to make such a claim. The Tyrells and Renly have raised an army of , men to support his claim to the throne, outnumbering any of the other claimants' armies by a significant number. Robb Stark sends his mother to treat with Renly and seek an alliance against the Lannisters.
While in camp, he engages Margaery in conversation, alluding to the fact that Renly is actually a homosexual, trying to lure her allegiance and that of House Tyrell away from Renly. To Baelish's surprise, he finds that Margaery is not intimidated by him or his court intrigues. Baelish also did not anticipate that, as it turns out, Margaery is fully aware that Renly is in a homosexual relationship with her own brother Loras, but she does not care.
Margaery honestly believed that supporting Renly's claim to the kingship was in the best interests of House Tyrell, so she agreed to the paper marriage. Indeed, she actively supported the idea. King Renly is then assassinated in his tent under mysterious circumstances.
As Ser Loras stands vigil over his body, Margaery urges him that it is not safe and they must return with their army to Highgarden. Littlefinger then arrives in the tent, and while Loras is angry with him and overcome with grief, Littlefinger calmly explains to him that Stannis's army will arrive within the hour, and when they do, the Tyrells' former allies in the Stormlands will fight each other over who gets to hand Loras and Margaery over to Stannis as prisoners.
Margaery agrees with the sense of what Littlefinger is saying, and that if they have any hope of getting revenge on Stannis for Renly's death which they accurately suspect he was responsible for they must live to fight another day.
Noting her marriage to Renly, he asks Margaery if she wants to be a queen. Margaery cooly responds that she wants to be " the queen", much to the pleasure of Baelish.
After Renly's death, the Tyrell host returns to Highgarden, while Littlefinger travels to Harrenhal to propose to Lord Tywin Lannister that they should seize Renly's untimely demise as an opportunity to forge a new alliance between House Lannister and House Tyrell.
With House Tyrell on their side, the large armies and resources of the Reach will support King Joffrey's faction in the war. Tywin feels that trying to woo the Tyrells to their allegiance is the obvious course of action, criticizing Baelish for acting like he's the only person who could have thought of that, but nonetheless he sends him to try to broker the alliance with House Tyrell. Littlefinger is successful in negotiating with the Tyrells, and the allied forces arrive in time to achieve a decisive victory against Stannis at the Battle of the Blackwater.
Just as Stannis's forces were turning the tide and about to take the city, the Lannister army led by Tywin and the large Tyrell army led by Loras arrived from the Riverlands and the Reach, and caught Stannis's army in the flank. Stannis' army was almost completely destroyed, though Stannis himself managed to escape with a small fraction of his men.
To formalize the new alliance between House Lannister and House Tyrell, King Joffrey agrees to be betrothed to marry Margaery Tyrell, who subsequently takes place at court. The marriage will be finalized once the war is over. Due to the new Lannister-Tyrell alliance, House Tyrell resumes shipment of its foodstuffs along the Roseroad to feed the common people of King's Landing , who were suffering greatly from the deprivations of the war, and the disruption in trade which began when Highgarden declared for Renly Baratheon.
Margaery says that wagons are now arriving in the city daily from the Reach, containing wheat, barley, and apples. Lady Olenna and her granddaughter Margaery have a private meeting with Sansa Stark in which Olenna asks Sansa to give her frank, truthful assessment of King Joffrey. Olenna bluntly tells Sansa that she feels her fatheaded oaf of a son Mace Tyrell made a major mistake in supporting Renly's rival claim to the throne, much to Margaery's embarrassment. Olenna nonetheless chides that the men of House Tyrell have never been very intelligent: her own husband the late Lord Luthor Tyrell rode off a cliff to his death during a hawking accident because he was too focused on the sky, Loras is good at knocking men off horses with a stick but not politics, and her son Mace is an oaf who is determined to see House Tyrell marry into the royal line.
Thus, she says, the more politically savvy women of House Tyrell are left to clean up the mess. Sansa confirms the rumors that have been coming out of the capital: Joffrey is a monster. Lady Olenna says this is "a pity" but takes the news calmly. She thanks Sansa for her honesty, and assures her that her son Mace is too set on entering Margaery into a royal marriage to call off the wedding at this point.
Tywin takes action as he does not want the Tyrells to take control over the North after the defeat of Robb Stark and decides to marry his son Tyrion to Sansa and daughter Cersei to Loras, preventing Sansa and Loras from marrying each other and placing the North under de facto Lannister control. When discussing the prospect of marrying Cersei Lannister to Loras Tyrell, Tywin Lannister and Olenna Tyrell discuss the scandals surrounding the pair.
In response to Tywin's suggestion that Highgarden "has a high tolerance for unnatural behavior", Olenna states that while House Tyrell doesn't "turn [itself] in knots over" homosexuality, incest is still very much frowned upon. On a more practical note, she says that the Tyrells cannot take the risk that Cersei will be unable to give Loras any heirs, as otherwise Highgarden will revert to the Baratheon children of Margaery and Joffrey. Tywin, using his position as Hand of the King , forces Olenna to consent to the marriage when he threatens to place Ser Loras in the Kingsguard.
At the wedding of Margaery Tyrell to Joffrey , Olenna Tyrell discusses the Iron Throne 's tremendous debt owed to the Iron Bank of Braavos with Tywin Lannister , who brushes them off, though Olenna openly comments that she knows Tywin is smarter than that. Olenna later meets with Sansa Stark and offers her condolences for the Red Wedding. Margaery's wedding to Joffrey takes an unexpected turn when the king dies from poison after sipping his wine.
