    [2/20] ASOIAF power couples → Nymeria of Ny Sar × Mors Martell

    Legend tells us that Princess Nymeria took ten thousand ships to sea, searching for a new home for her people beyond the long reach of Valyria and its dragonlords. Nymeria’s voyage was long and terrible, and her fleet was battered and tattered when finally it arrived in Dorne.
    Most of the Dornish lords viewed the Rhoynar as unwelcome interlopers. But Mors Martell, the Lord of the Sandship, saw in the newcomers an opportunity ... and if the singers can be believed, his lordship also lost his heart to Nymeria, the fierce and beautiful warrior queen who had led her people across the world to keep them free. When Mors took Nymeria to wife, hundreds of his knights, squires, and lords bannermen also wed Rhoynish women, and many of those who were already wed took them for their paramours. Thus were the two peoples united by blood, and their unions enriched and strengthened House Martell and its Dornish allies.
    To celebrate these unions, Nymeria burned the Rhoynish ships. “Our wanderings are at an end,” she declared. “We have found a new home, and here we shall live and die.” In the light of their burning, Princess Nymeria named Mors Martell the Prince of Dorne, in the Rhoynish style, asserting his dominion over “the red sands and the white, and all the lands and rivers from the mountains to the great salt sea.”
    In the years of war that followed, no fewer than six conquered kings were sent to the Wall in golden fetters by Nymeria and her prince, until only the greatest of their foes remained. When Mors fell to Yorick Yronwood’s sword in the Third Battle of the Boneway, Nymeria assumed sole command of his armies. Two more years of battle were required, but in the end it was Nymeria to whom Yronwood bent the knee, and Nymeria who ruled thereafter from Sunspear for almost twenty-seven years.
    When at last she died, it was the eldest of her four daughters by Mors Martell who succeeded her, not her son by Davos Dayne, for by then the Dornish had come to adopt many of the laws and customs of the Rhoynar.
