Doran Nymeros Martell is the Prince of Dorne and Lord of Słoneczna Włócznia. He is a cautious, pensive man who does not wear his emotions on his sleeve. He has a bad case of gout and has trouble walking. He attempts to appear neutral in the Wojna Pięciu Królów, but has shown a desire to avenge his murdered sister Elia Martell. He is rarely seen in public, due to the gout, because he does not want to appear weak to his enemies.


Doran was born in 248 AL. The names of his father and mother are not mentioned in the books. He was the first son and was heir of his mother who ruled Dorne in her own right.

His siblings are:

Because of the early deaths of Olyvar and Mors and the difference in age with his surviving siblings, Doran was raised alone. This may have stimulated his tendency of not speaking out his thoughts. He squired at Salt Shore.[1]

He met his wife Mellario of Norvos while traveling in the Wolne Miasta. They fell in love and married. Although Mellario was high born enough to become his wife, in Westeros most marriages for nobles are political marriages and a love match is very uncommon. The couple had three children.

Although they married out of love the marriage was not very happy. Mellario could not get used to Dornish customs. Shortly after the birth of Trystane, Quentyn was sent to be fostered as the ward and squire of Lord Anders Yronwood. This was done to make peace with the Yronwoods after the previous Lord Ormond Yronwood had died of his wounds taken in a duel with Oberyn. Mellario did not approve and went back to Norvos.

In his fifties Doran became badly afflicted with gout, barely able to walk and is usually confined to a wheelchair. He spends a great deal of time at the Water Gardens, the summer home of the Martells, watching children play. He avoids the commoners and only sees his trusted courtiers and advisors to hide his weakness from his enemies.

Doran's mother died during or shortly after Rebelia Roberta and Doran succeeded her. The Martells had ties with the Targaryens and had supported them during the war.

Because of the murder of Elia, Oberyn wanted Dorne to rally for Viserys the surviving Targaryen heir after the Zdobycie Królewskiej Przystani but Doran decided otherwise. In negotiations with Jon Arryn the matter was put to rest although people suspected that the Martells including Doran still harbored hate for the Lannisters.

Doran and his brother Oberyn worked in secret for years planning on bringing an end to the reign of Robert Baratheon and destroying Ród Lannisterów. Oberyn travelled to Braavos where Viserys Targaryen and Daenerys Targaryen were being kept by Ser Willem Darry and signed a secret pact, that the Sealord of Braavos witnessed, promising Viserys the hand of Arianne Martell in return for Dorne's help in claiming the Żelazny Tron. Other key players in this plot were Varys, Illyrio Mopatis, Jon Connington and Ser Myles Toyne, the commander of the Złota Kompania.

The original plan was after Khal Drogo weds Daenerys and invades Westeros, the Złota Kompania and Dorne would join forces and combine all three armies into one. The invasion however would not take place untill Varys revealed the secret that Robert Baratheon's heirs were not fathered by himself thus plunging the Żelazny Tron into war with the powerful Ród Lannisterów, once both sides had exhausted themselves in the ensuing conflict the combined armies of the Dothrakowie, Dorne and the Złota Kompania would attack the depleted forces of the victor and seize the Żelazny Tron. This plan did not come to fruition however due to the deaths of Viserys Targaryen and Khal Drogo.

Recent Events

Starcie Królów

Doran originally refused to swear allegiance to Joffrey I and considered supporting Renly Baratheon. However, Tyrion Lannister was able to gain his allegiance by sending him Myrcella Baratheon and betrothing her to his son Trystane, offering justice for his murdered sister Elia, and giving him a seat on the King's Mała Rada.[2] Once Myrcella was safely in Dorne, Doran would send his armies to the high passes, giving the Marcher Lords something to worry about.[3]

Nawałnica Mieczy

Not being fit enough to journey to Królewska Przystań, he sent his brother Oberyn to claim both the seat and justice.[4]

Uczta dla Wron

When Oberyn died in Królewska Przystań,[5] Doran refused all suggestion of going to war for vengeance. He returned to Słoneczna Włócznia to show his people that he still held power, and had Oberyn's warlike, bastard daughters, the "Żmijowe Bękarcice", imprisoned to maintain the peace.[6] After his daughter's foiled attempt to crown Myrcella,[7][8] Doran revealed to her that he had been working secretly for the fifteen years since Elia's death to rob Lord Tywin Lannister of all he held dear, and that he planned to ally Ród Martellów with Daenerys Targaryen.[9]

Taniec ze Smokami

When Ser Balon Swann arrives at Słoneczna Włócznia a feast is held in his honor. His daughter Arianne now fully aware of her fathers plans seats on his right. Oberyns daughters Obara, Tyene, Nymeria are also present aswell as Ellaria Sand, Areo Hotah and half the nobility of Dorne. Doran is presented with the skull of the The Mountain.

Ser Balon states that Cersei Lannister wishes him to bring Myrcella back to Królewska Przystań to visit her brother. Prince Doran or a retainer is invited also to fill the vacant Dornish seat on the Mała Rada, Prince Trystane has been invited as well, to see the city. Doran states that traveling by ship might be easier but this unnerves Ser Balon who states that a voyage by sea would be too dangerous. Doran agrees he is probably right.

In a private chamber Doran Martell revealed to his daughter and to Tyene, Obara, Nymeria and Areo Hotah that during the journey to Królewska Przystań the party would be ambushed by brigands shouting "halfman" and that during the attack Trystane would be killed and Ser Balon will falsely claim that he saw Tyrion Lannister. This plan was orchestrated by Cersei Lannister. This news shocks those present, Prince Doran states he was informed of this plot by a "friend" in Kingslanding (possibly Varys) and he was dubious himself till Ser Balon confirmed his suspicion by trying to persuade him to avoid a voyage by ship (which would have disrupted all of Cersei's arrangements).

To stop this scheme to coming to fruition, Doran had Ser Balon was brought to Myrcella and finds out about her injuries by Gerold Dayne, Myrcella also lies (under Arianne's direction) and claims that Ser Gerold also killed Arys Oakheart. Myrcella then (under Arianne's direction again) begged Ser Balon to bring Dayne to justice. Doran had Obara escort Ser Balon to High Hermitage and he is at the moment hunting for Darkstar.[10] Doran then sent Nymeria to Kingslanding to claim the vacant seat on the Mała Rada and Tyene to the great sept of Baelor to befriend the New Wielki Septon.[11]

All the while Doran waits for word from his son Quentyn, he has heard that a fleet of ships are sailing to Westeros and readies the armies of Dorne for the time to strike.
