The Submission of Sunspear was the temporary victory of King Daeron I Targaryen over the Dornishmen during the Conquest of Dorne.


To ensure the loyalty of the Dornish after taking Sunspear in 158 AC, Daeron had fourteen highborn hostages brought back to King's Landing by his cousin, Prince Aegon Targaryen. While the hostages secured the loyalty of the highborn Dornish, Daeron did not anticipate the tenacity of the Dornish smallfolk in resisting the invaders.[1]

Daeron the Young Dragon was slain trying to suppress the uprising and King Baelor I Targaryen ascended the Iron Throne in 161 AC. Prince Viserys Targaryen wanted to put several of the hostages to death, but Baelor forbade any harm to come to the hostages. Baelor walked barefoot to Sunspear to forge a peace.[2]
