Sylvenna Sand was a bastard from Dorne and a whore at the House of Kisses, a brothel in King's Landing. She was the paramour of Essie, another whore and the mother of Gaemon Palehair, a pretender king during the Dance of the Dragons, who was originally claimed to be a bastard of King Aegon II Targaryen.[1][2]

During the Moon of the Three Kings, after Rhaenyra Targaryen's escape from King's Landing, Gaemon gathered thousands of followers and issued a series of edicts, quite likely the work of Sylvenna, for some of them reflected the Rhoynish views on women inherited by the Dornish.[2]
