The Sand Snakes are the infamous bastard daughters of Prince Oberyn Martell by various women, the name alluding to their father’s nickname, “the Red Viper”, and to their surname Sand, given to bastards in Dorne. Some daughters of his were born of septas, others of noble women and others still of prostitutes.

In the main series and novellas, George R.R. Martin does not state specifically in which year a character has been born or has died. This page lists the calculations to determine such years, years of birth mostly, but also years of death at times, as specific as is possible, for all characters for all this is possible. This information then can be used in articles and serves to give a more complete image of the world of A Song of Ice and Fire.
This is a great resource for fic and meta writers for determining characters’ ages. Thanks to ilanawexler for the link!

If you don’t know that by now, you’re the wrong one to watch over her.
