Abstract We introduce the notion of filtered representations of quivers, which is related to usual quiver representations, but is a systematic generalization of conjugacy classes of $n\times n$ matrices to (block) upper triangular matrices up to conjugation by invertible (block) upper triangular matrices. With this notion in mind, we describe the ring of invariant polynomials for interesting families of quivers, namely, finite $ADE$-Dynkin quivers and affine type $\widetilde{A}$-Dynkin quivers. We then study their relation to an important and fundamental object in representation theory called the Grothendieck-Springer resolution, and we conclude by stating several conjectures, suggesting further research.
