In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Genna's genealogy and relation to the other Lannisters are the same.

While the family tree in the Season 8 prop explicitly shows Genna as unmarried and without children, in the books she is married to Emmon Frey, the second son of Walder Frey, and has four Frey sons: Cleos (Alton Lannister's book counterpart), Lyonel, Tion, and Walder.

When Genna was seven years old, her father was persuaded by Lord Walder Frey to betroth her to Walder's second son Emmon. Tywin, who was ten years old, spoke out against the match (the Freys were vassals of another Great House, thus the status of House Frey was far below House Lannister, and Emmon was not even Lord Frey's heir); his defiance unnerved both Tytos and Walder, though the betrothal remained standing. Genna did not approve of all Tywin did, nor enjoyed the company of the man he later became, yet she adored him for being the only person to speak out against her betrothal.

Genna once told Tywin that Tyrion, whom he strongly disliked and unjustly blamed for Joanna's death, resembled him the most; Tywin grew so angry he refused to speak to Genna for six months.

Genna was well-liked by her father and later by Tywin as well, until she for unknown reasons fell out of his favor, but retains a prominent position in Lannister family affairs, taking a prominent role during her nephew Jaime's campaign in the Riverlands, and a position on his war council.

In A Storm of Swords, two of Genna's sons are killed: Cleos is shot by outlaw archers while escorting Jaime and Brienne to King's Landing; Tion is killed alongside his cousin Willem Lannister by Rickard Karstark (in the show he was replaced with another cousin, Martyn Lannister).
