House Yronwood of Yronwood is the most powerful house in Dorne after House Martell. Yronwood Castle is the last fortress defending the Boneway; this is reflected in their title Warden of the Stone Way.
House Yronwood is an ancient family who once ruled half of Dorne as the Kings of Yronwood, with domains significantly greater than House Martell of Sunspear. House Yronwood established Yronwood in the high valleys and green foothills below the peaks and seized control of the Stone Way, the second of the two great passes into Dorne. Well protected and comparably fertile, their lands were also well timbered and possessed of valuable deposits of iron, tin, and silver.
