Canon Claude Posted November 5, 2022 Share Posted November 5, 2022 Just to recap, the Dornish Marches are a highly contested area where three different regions meet. The Reach, Stormlands, and Dorne all claim territory, and we’re told that the marcher lords spent centuries battling the Dornish raiders coming up from the south. Most of the marcher lords (Caron, Dondarrion, Selmy, and Swann) are in the Stormlands, but it seems like House Peake and House Tarly are also marcher lords in their own right. But as much as we hear of the marcher lords fighting the Dornish, I’m kind of surprised that there’s no mention at all of the marcher lords fighting each other. The Reach and the Stormlands have definitely fought each other many times over the centuries. Given the proximity of such powerful and warlike houses in two different regions, you’d think they’d have been at each other’s throats just as often as they were fighting the Dornish.
