Rhaenyra Targaryen was the first-born child of King Viserys I. Her claim to the Żelazny Tron was challenged by her younger half-brother Aegon II, sparking the civil war known as the Taniec Smoków.

Character and Appearance

Pampered from an early age, Rhaenyra was a pudgy girl and a stout woman, with a thick waist and a very large bosom. She was very proud and stubborn, and there was a certain petulance to her small mouth. Rhaenyra had her family's Valyrian looks, wearing her silver-gold hair in a long braid in the manner of Aegon I's warrior wife Visenya, though Rhaenyra was no warrior herself. She always dressed richly, favoring purple and maroon velvets and golden Myrish lace in intricate patterns. Her bodice often glittered with pearls and diamonds, and there were always rings on her fingers. Whenever she was anxious, she would turn them compulsively, round and round. Though Rhaenyra could be charming, she was quick to anger and never forgot a slight. During the Taniec Smoków, she wore her father's crown.[1]

History

Early Life

Rhaenyra was King Viserys I's only living child by his first wife a Lady of Ród Arrynów. She grew up expecting to become the first ruling ueen of Westeros. When the second of her brothers died soon after being born, Viserys himself began to treat Rhaenyra as his heir, keeping her by his side in court and at council meetings. Many of the nobles of the realm took note, so the young princess was surrounded by flatterers and favor-seekers all throughout her childhood. Her mother's death and her father's second marriage did little to disturb her expectations, but when his new Hightower queen gave the king three healthy sons and a daughter in rapid succession, the seeds of the Taniec Smoków were sown.[1]

After the death of her father King Viserys I, his will stated that Princess Rhaenyra would succeed him. However, Ser Criston Cole, Lord Commander of the Gwardia Królewska, defied the King's will and instead crowned Rhaenyra's half-brother Aegon II, who was ten years younger. This brought about a Targaryen civil war, known as the Taniec Smoków, where smok riders fought each other[2];during the war Rhaenyra rode her Smok Syrax.[3] Rhaenyra's bid failed and her half-brother Aegon had her fed to his own smok.[4] Aegon died shortly after his victory with no male issue, and was succeeded by Rhaenyra's son, Aegon III.
