Lord Commander's Tower
The Lord Commander's Tower or Lord Commander's Keep is one of the towers of Castle Black.
The Lord Commander's Tower is a formidable stone tower. The top two floors contain the chambers of the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. The tower's solar includes a table and windows with heavy drapes. An inner door leads to the sleeping cell of Jeor Mormont. Below the Lord Commander's chambers are cells for other black brothers. Its subcellars include an undervault.
A Game of Thrones
After being named as the steward to Jeor Mormont, Jon Snow moves from Hardin's Tower to a cell below Jeor's chambers. When Othor rises as a wight and attempts to assassinate Jeor, Jon saves the Lord Commander's life after being awakened by Ghost. Jon burns the wight after drapes are set afire from an oil lamp. The interior of the tower's top two floors are gutted from the fire, so Jeor makes his residence in the King's Tower.
A Storm of Swords
During the attack on Castle Black, Jon sees the empty shell of the Lord Commander's Keep. Ygritte is killed near the tower during the fighting.
A Dance with Dragons
Jon, now Lord Commander, resides in Donal Noye's old quarters behind the armory, since the Lord Commander's Tower is a shell and Stannis Baratheon has occupied the King's Tower. Jon orders that the captive Cregan Karstark be moved from the ice cells to the undervault of the Lord Commander's Tower.
The Night's Watch is thousands of years old, but I'll wager Lord Snow's the first brother ever honored for burning down the Lord Commander's Tower.
