Adam FriedbergEdit

A thought occurs: the books themselves state that Oberyn and Ellaria have engaged in threesomes with other women - when he's riding into King's Landing he casually asks Tyrion if he knows and brothels with attractive blonde women, because being from Dorne, Ellaria has never had the chance to "share" a blonde woman with him. I realized that Adam Friedberg will assuredly use this as a pretext to actually depict this within an episode, with Oberyn and Ellaria visiting Littlefinger's brothel - given that the books sort of imply that it did actually happen, just "off screen". That boy is a visionary.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 01:17, July 26, 2013 (UTC)

Quote Source?Edit

May I ask the source of the header quote? I know it's obviously from season 4, I'm just wondering if it comes from a particular trailer or from something else.

The recent featurette on "Bastards in Westeros" - probably first or second episode, but we'll update accordingly.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 05:45, March 30, 2014 (UTC)
It seems the quote has been cut after "Can't say, I've ever met a Sand before ..." in the final episode. So shouldn't the Source be updated? 20:16, May 22, 2014 (UTC)


For the purposes of the infobox, would it be wrong to call Ellaria the "sister-in-law" of Doran Martell, "aunt" of Trystane Martell, etc.? What would we call her? Or should we just leave that blank?--The Dragon Demands (talk) 03:30, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

Leave it blank.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 05:12, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

Quote Edit

Shouldn't there be a more appropriate and character-defining quote for her at the top? The one currently there is sort of... well, it made sense back when she didn't really have a lot of dialogue yet, but by now there's much better quotes. Maybe one from her conversations with Doran in 5x02 or the Sand Snakes in 5x04, pointing out her intention to avenge Oberyn, or something like that. —ArticXiongmao (talk) 03:33, May 4, 2015 (UTC)

If you want to update it, go ahead. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 03:34, May 4, 2015 (UTC)

Five or four?

Doesn't Ellaria has 5 daughters? Tyene and 4 youngest.


In the family tab of the Infobox, the information is displayed as follows;

{Oberyn Martell} - paramour

Tyene Sand - daughter

Three other daughters

Perhaps I've missed something, but why can't we just list her other daughters?

They have their own pages, and are listed induvidually on the pages of the other Sand Snakes.

I don't see any reason why we can't do this, unless Doran's quote causes conflict. 02:52, April 16, 2016 (UTC)

Season 6 Coup d'EtatEdit

Seeing that the two remaining legitimate Martells were killed during the premiere, how does Ellaria intend for Dorne to "not be ruled by weak men"? Because seeing as they've just started a war with the Lannisters, she can hardly get her daughters legitimized by royal decree. Or would she push for the next important noble house in Dorne to rule? --Fenrir51 (talk) 22:19, April 25, 2016 (UTC)

We'll just have to wait and see. Shaneymike (talk) 22:38, April 25, 2016 (UTC)

I think the TV writers just plain didn't think that out.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 23:30, April 25, 2016 (UTC)
Maybe, assuming she's aware of Daenerys Targaryen's deeds across the Narrow Sea, she may move to have Dorne's nobility to facilitate her transport to the Seven Kingdoms? If so, she would petition a returning Daenerys to legitimize Oberyn's daughters. --Fenrir51 (talk) 00:22, April 26, 2016 (UTC)
      Ellaria and the Sand Snakes don't need legitimacy in order to rule Dorne and wage war on House Lannister; all they need is for SOMEONE to support what they're doing, even if said support is relatively small.
William the Conqueror - who was a bastard himself - seized power in England with a handful of supporters and went on to not only rule that country, but transform it.Daveyelmer (talk) 16:45, April 28, 2016 (UTC)
