Dorne, the lands ruled by the Lord of Sunspear.

The Lord of Sunspear (feminine Lady of Sunspear) is the ruler of the stronghold of Sunspear, a castle is Dorne. The holder was traditionally also Prince of Dorne and thus 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 were the Lords of Sunspear (and the Princes of Dorne) until their legal extinction.

Sunspear's lord is currently unknown. The last holder of the title, Prince Doran Martell, was killed, along with his heir, Prince Trystane Martell. It is unclear whether Ellaria Sand assumed the title Lady of Sunspear. Since her imprisonment in King's Landing by Cersei Lannister, an unnamed Martell has assumed power in Dorne, and he presumably rules from Sunspear.
