World of Westeros - History

Barely a century has passed since Dorne was brought into the Seven Kingdoms. The Targaryen King Daeron II, married early to the Dornish Princess Myriah, finally wedded Dorne to his kingdom by giving his sister to the Prince of Dorne. Diplomacy succeeded where his namesake Daeron I, the Young Dragon, failed nearly a half-century before.

The Martells maintained friendly terms with the blood of the dragon until the very end. Princess Elia, sister to Doran Nymeros Martell, was married to the Crown Prince Rhaegar when the war that unmade the Targaryens began. At the Sack of King’s Landing, Elia and her children were killed. Rumours say Ser Gregor Clegane murdered her infant son Aegon before raping and killing her, and Ser Armory Lorch killed her daughter, Princess Rhaenys; both were sworn Lannister men. Only time will tell whether the truth of this murder will come out, and how it will affect the relationship between the Martells and the Lannisters.
