Elia Martell ☼

Was a princess of Dorne. She was married to the crown prince, Rhaegar Targaryen, and by him birthed Rhaenys and Aegon.

Elia Martell was said to be very fair, with the typical Martell features of dark hair, black eyes and olive skin. She was a gentle, good, and gracious lady, but frail due to her delicate health, she was kind and clever, with a sweet wit. 

At the tourney at Harrenhal Elia’s husband, Rhaegar, met Lyanna Stark and apparently became infatuated with her. He won the tournament and crowned her Queen of Love and Beauty , passing over his wife. A year later Rhaegar either abducted or ran off with Lyanna, and this event sparked Robert’s Rebellion. 

During the war Elia’s husband Rhaegar was killed by Lord Robert Baratheon at the Battle of the Trident . Rhaegar’s father, Mad King Aerys , due to his paranoia, believed that Elia’s uncle, Prince Lewyn , must have betrayed Rhaegar on the Trident, so Aerys kept Elia and both of her children in King’s Landing as hostages against possible Dornish betrayal. Elia was raped and murdered by Ser Gregor Clegane during the sack of King’s Landing.

Elia’s body, along with that of the two children, were wrapped in crimson Lannister cloaks and presented to Robert Baratheon as a token of fealty.

People talking that Elia was immature because she laughed and “stopped” loving Baelor Hightower because of Oberyn’s joke. Really????? That is one of the worst arguments ever since the “Rhaegar and Lyanna was ok because Elia was weak”. Elia was a TEENAGE girl by the time Oberyn made the joke, if i’m not mistaken she was 14 or 15. That is the same thing to blame Lyanna for “running away” ( if she really did ) with a married man, so, she was immature too. Or to blame Sansa for being in love with Joffrey, even after the whole incident which lead to Lady’s death and later the decapitation of her father, so she was immature. They were all teenagers! we dont expect maturity from teenagers.
