Mors Martell was the head of House Martell and Lord of the Sandship who married the warrior queen Nymeria. Together they conquered the rest of Dorne in Nymeria's War.[2]


When Nymeria led the Rhoynar refugees to Dorne in southern Westeros, the lands of the Martells paled in comparison to those of House Yronwood.[3] The marriage of Lord Mors to Nymeria gave the Martells the manpower to conquer the rest of Dorne and gave the Rhoynar a new homeland. The Dornish rulers have since styled themselves "Prince" in the Rhoynish fashion rather than "King".[4] Mors was slain by King Yorick V Yronwood in the Third Battle of the Boneway, but Nymeria forced Yorick to submit two years later.[2]
