Wyl is the seat of House Wyl in Dorne. It is located east of the Boneway at the mouth of the River Wyl at the Sea of Dorne.[1][2]


House Wyl has long fought against the marcher lords of the Dornish Marches to the north. The family has tunneled beneath their castle to link caverns for greater defense.[3]

During the First Dornish War, the Wyls took refuge in their caverns after King Aegon I Targaryen attacked their mountain fastnesses with Balerion.[4]
