"Made a short trip to the Kings Landing but returned to her beloved home town, Sunspear. Born to the house of Martell, fairly unknown straight line to the royal family. Kept as a secret for still unknown reason to her, but maybe some day it will be revealed, or not, let's try to have some fun and let the game begin!"
The Dornishmen, also known as the Dornish, are the inhabitants of Dorne, one of the constituent regions of Westeros. Like the Northmen and the ironborn, the Dornish have a unique culture, law system, and ethnic background that sets them apart from the rest of the Seven Kingdoms. In the case of the Dornish, this is due to the intermingling of Westerosi inhabitants of the region - predominantly of First Men and Andal origins - with Rhoynar refugees who fled Essos to escape conquest by the Valyrian Freehold and eventually settled in Dorne. Due to their Rhoynar blood, Dornishmen tend to possess olive skin, black hair, and dark eyes.
In the rest of the Seven Kingdoms, the Dornish have a reputation for being hot-blooded and sexually licentious. Indeed, Dornishmen have more "relaxed" views towards sexuality and love than the rest of Westeros. Paramours are not shunned or kept in secret: instead they are held in a similar status as a lawful wife or husband, and it is not unusual for noblewomen as well as men to have paramours. The Dornish also have no particular stigma against homosexual behavior. Similarly, bastards do not carry the stigma of being born out of wedlock and are raised along their trueborn siblings and cousins, though they are still considered poor matches for marriage due to their inability to receive inheritance. Prince Oberyn mentions at Joffrey's wedding that his people do not despise bastards because they are born out of passion.
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, present-day Dornishmen are the result of the Rhoynar migration, in which the Rhoynish people, led by Princess Nymeria, united Dorne with the aid of Prince Mors Martell, who brokered a marriage alliance with her.
After returning from her short trip to Kings Landing she was placed to the Sunspear Castle to learn all the aspects of being the ruler of Dorne. Her mother was a princess of the house she learned. She still are unfamiliar about why it was kept as a secret for such a long time, but maybe it was a way to keep them safe.
