House Martell

Where are they now?
In season 4 we are finally introduced to some of the members of House Martell of Dorne. We have heard them mentioned before but, in this season we finally get to meet some of them.

-Oberyn Martell is currently in Kings Landing for King Joffrey's wedding, but now Joffrey's dead and the place in a bit of a heap!! Tywin offers Oberyn a place on the small council, it's his indirect way of admitting that he will need Dorne when Daenerys finally comes to Westeros with her dragons. As Dorne was the only kingdom to escape the last time dragons attacked Westeros.

-Ellaria Sand is Oberyn's paramour and mother to four of his bastard daughters. She has come to Kings Landing with him and is causing quite a stir as she is bastard born, and we all know how most people feel about bastards in Westeros.

The Martell's are going to have a big part to play in Season 4 and the other season's to come. Might they be the family that could finally take on the Lannisters?!
