The Lord of Sunspear (or Lady of Sunspear) is the ruler of the stronghold of Sunspear, the capital of Dorne. The holder is the ruler of the entire region of Dorne. As with most Dornish titles, succession to the title is granted to the eldest surviving heir regardless of gender.
Dorne was a sovereign kingdom before the invasion of Aegon the Conqueror and remained one afterwards, the only one of the Seven Kingdoms to do so. It joined the Seven Kingdoms through a peaceful marriage alliance nearly two centuries later. House Martell have been the Lords of Sunspear (and the Princes of Dorne) ever since.
The current Lord of Sunspear is Prince Doran Martell.
