"I am al'Lan Mandragoran... Lord of the Seven Towers, Defender of the Wall of First Fires, Bearer of the Sword of the Thousand Lakes!... I may be a king without a land. But I am still King!"
   —Lan Mandragoran

Defender of the Wall of First Fires is a title Lan Mandragoran claimed for himself just prior to ordering his army of twelve thousand to charge one hundred fifty thousand Shadowspawn at Tarwin's Gap.

Little remains to inform us of his meaning, but it is not hard to assume that it had something to do with a line of defense maintained by Malkier. And it probably had something to do with fires, perhaps beacons to alert the nation that an invasion from the Blight was occurring.
