Leadership of Dorne during the War of Conquest
When Aegon I Targaryen sent ravens to all the rulers of Westeros demanding that they yield to him as sole king of Westeros and be rewarded or be destroyed; Mariya replied she would be his ally against the Storm King - but would not yield.
When Rhaenys Targaryen led the invasion to Dorne, the Dornish refused to give battle, instead they launched guerilla raids on her forces, then melted away into the mountains and deserts, and returned only to launch guerilla raids on the army anew.
After taking the Dornish keeps Rhaenys would find them empty except for women and children. When asked where the men went, the Dornish would just reply "away". She thereupon flew on her dragon to Sunspear and met Mariya Martell alone there, demanding the surrender of Dorne. Mariya instead replied that, "This is Dorne. You are not wanted here, return at your peril." Rhaenys replied that she would return with "Fire and Blood," but Mariya simply replied, "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken." The Targaryen army then withdrew from Dorne, leaving the country untaken.
