House Jordayne was one of the Andal houses who came to Dorne during the Andal invasion of Westeros, along with House Uller, House Qorgyle, House Vaith, House Allyrion, House Santagar, and House Martell.
At some point, House Martell bent the knee to the Jordayne kings of the Tor. But by the time of Nymeria's War, House Jordayne was among the bannermen of King Yorick Yronwood, and fought against Mors Martell and his allies.
