House Martell is the ruling house of Dorne. House Nymeros Martell of Sunspear is one of the Great Houses of Westeros and the ruling house of Dorne. ‘Nymeros’ indicates “of the line of Nymeria,” but generally it is simply called House Martell. Their stronghold is the castle of Sunspear. Their sigil is a red sun pierced by a golden spear on orange. When Nymeria, warrior queen of the Rhoyne landed in Dorne with her ten thousand ships, she wed Lord Mors Martell of Sunspear. Together, they vanquished all of Mors’ Dornish rivals establishing the primacy of House Martell. The Rhoynar influence is the reason Dornish rulers style themselves “prince” rather than “king” and why Dorne continues to practice absolute agnatic primogeniture, with the eldest child inheriting regardless of gender.
