Rhaenys led her army into Dorne. However, the Dornish refused to give battle, instead melting away into the mountains and deserts, returning only to launch guerrilla raids on the army. Rhaenys captured holdfasts to no avail, as their people had already fled, leaving only the elderly and infirm. Frustrated, she flew directly to Sunspear to demand Princess Mariya’s surrender. Mariya instead informed her 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 withdrew from Dorne, leaving the country untaken.
