History

Prince Lewyn was the younger brother of the ruling Princess of Dorne. He was appointed a member of the Kingsguard in service of King Aerys II.

During Robert's Rebellion, Aerys used Lewyn's niece, Princess Elia Martell, as a hostage against him, and sent him to command the ten thousand Dornishmen that were to join Prince Rhaegar Targaryen's force that was assembling to take on Robert Baratheon.[2] He died during the Battle of the Trident at the hands of Ser Lyn Corbray, although Prince Lewyn was mortally wounded before his final duel with Ser Lyn.[3]

Dorne was incensed by the deaths of Prince Lewyn and Princess Elia during the war, and Oberyn Martell tried to raise the kingdom to support Viserys Targaryen, the surviving son of King Aerys II. In response, Jon Arryn travelled to Sunspear the year after Robert took the throne (284AL) to return the bones of Prince Lewyn and was able to broker a peace with Doran Martell.[4]

Arianne Martell recalls her great uncle fondly, remembering when she a little girl how her great uncle Lewyn would tower over her and tickle her till she could barely breathe from laughter.[5]

It was a closely held secret that Prince Lewyn kept a paramour despite the Kingsguard oaths of chastity.[5] Ser Barristan Selmy and his other sworn brothers were aware of this but kept their sworn brother's secret.[6]
