the sansa-ashford theory: At the Tourney of Ashford in The Hedge Knight, five knights from five very specific families fight for the honor of Lord Ashford’s young maiden daughter. These knights are Baratheon, Tyrell, Lannister, Hardyng, and Targaryen, which almost directly correspond with the suitors Sansa has had, minus the Targaryen challenger. This theory predicts that Aegon VI will pursue a marriage alliance with Sansa Stark in the upcoming novels.
It wasn’t a good marriage, for when Mellario had met Prince Doran their initial attraction to one another had happened when they least expected it. He was a prince from a different country and she was a woman full of life who had come from a completely unfamiliar culture. Coming from a different culture lead to a clash in Dorne especially when it came to the customs of Dorne. For there marriage was an example that even love can fail. Mellario and Doran had a falling out when Doran had sent their son; Quentyn to be fostered at Yronwood. While Doran got to be with their children, Mellario had away from them.
