The Sea of Dorne is a large sea along the southeastern coast of Westeros. It is bordered to the north by Cape Wrath in the stormlands, to the west and south by Dorne, and to the east by the narrow sea.[1] The river Wyl flows into the sea.

Prominent settlements along the Sea of Dorne include Ghost Hill, the Tor, Wyl, and Yronwood in Dorne, as well as Stonehelm and the Weeping Town in the stormlands.[2]

History

Some maesters, such as Cassander, believe the Sea of Dorne was once a smaller inland sea separated from the narrow sea by salt marshes, and that the narrow sea eventually flooded into this once-freshwater sea through the Song of the Sea.[3]

The Storm Kings of old sometimes kept war fleets at the towns and village situated on the northern shore of the sea.[4]

Within the sea sits an old castle on a rock, Ghaston Grey, which is used as a prison for criminals by House Martell.[5]
