As if owning the Game of Thrones Season 4 blu-ray wasn't a treat enough, the lovely people over at HBO have included an bonus gift for all ye fans of Dorne and House Martell.

Released online as a three minute long clip, the video recounts a brief history of House Martell from the arrival of Nymeria, the princess of Rhoyne and her subsequent marriage to Lord Mors Martell of Dorne, and ends with a retelling of Robert I Baratheon's rebellion and the death of Elia Martell at the hands of the Ser Gregor Clegane - The Mountain That Rides.

The clip is narrated by none other than the brilliant Pedro Pascal who graced our screens as the charismatic Red Viper Oberyn Martell, and its animation is absolutely stunning as all characters are brushed with and soaked in the gallons of blood that has spilled in Westeros and Essos over countless generations.

Check it out, you shan't be disappointed!

Dorne and House Martell will have a much bigger part to play in the fifth season of HBO's Game Of Thrones as Oberyn's brother Prince Doran Martell and his bastard sisters The Sand Snakes will make their long awaited entrances to the series.

Game Of Thrones returns on April 12th, 2015 and I, for one, cannot wait.
