House Martell

  • House Martell
  • In the period of Aegon’s Conquest, Dorne resisted all of the Targaryen king’s efforts to annex it into the Seven Kingdoms. A marriage alliance between a Targaryen king and a princess of Dorne finally brought the region under the rule of the Iron Throne. The death of Oberyn Martell in King's landing complicated the royal family's relationship with the martells, and divided Dorne's loyalties between Prince Doran and Ellaria Sand. With the help of Oberyn's bastard daughters the Sand Snakes, Ellaria murdered Myrcella Baratheon and Doran. She continues her mission of vengeance against the lannisters, having aligned herself with Tyrells and Targaryens.
