Viserys I was the fifth Targaryen king of the Siedem Królestw.[1] He ruled from 103AC to 129AC. He succeeded his grandfather, Jaehaerys I Targaryen. His reign was considered peaceful and prosperous.[2] He rode the smok Balerion, until the smok died of old age during the reign of Old King Jaehaerys[3]


Viserys was plump and pleasant. He was described as amiable, open handed and eager to please. He was well loved by many Lords and smallfolk. In his midlife his stoutness caused him numerous health problems: he suffered from gout, aching joints, back pain, and respiratory issues. Towards the end of his life his girth nearly kept him from ascending the steps to the thrown.[2]

He sported a bushy, silver-gold mustache and wore the crown of his grandfather, Jaehaerys I Targaryen.[4]


Prince Baelon Targaryen, chosen by King Jaehaerys I Targaryen as his heir in 92AC,[5] died before the Old King, leading to questions about the succession. Baelon's elder son, Viserys, was eventually chosen by the Great Council convened in 101AC. A tourney to celebrate his accession was held in Staw Dziewic in 103AC. He was twenty-six years old and had been married for a decade to Lady Aemma Arryn.[2]

King Viserys I ruled well, and continued the prosperous peace left to him by his grandfather, Jaehaerys I Targaryen. In his court he had the dwarf jester Mushroom. He had three children by his first wife Aemma. A daughter, Princess Rhaenyra, who lived until adulthood and two sons who died in infancy[6]. Aemma died in 105AC after giving birth to the second son who Viserys named Baelon after his father. Baelon died a day later following his mother to the grave. [2] Lacking a son to succeed him, Viserys began to groom Princess Rhaenyra to be the ruling queen. His Hand, Ser Otto Hightower, encouraged this plan to avoid the reign of Prince Daemon Targaryen, the king's younger brother. Viserys taught Rhaenyra how to rule and made her part of his Mała Rada. In 105AC, hundreds of lords and landed Rycerzs had done obeisance to the princess and sworn solemn oaths to defend her rights.[5]

Viserys remarried in 106AC to Ser Otto Hightower's daughter Alicent Hightower, a marriage that produced several sons and a daughter, Helaena Targaryen, with her.[6] Otto attempted to convince the king to change the succession, but in the end, Viserys removed Otto as Hand, bestowing the honor on Lord Lyonel Strong.[2] Rhaenyra remained his heir, however, a decision he left in his will.

Viserys hated conflict and made repeated attempts to cease the hostilities between Zieloni and Czarni. His attempts met with much resistance, with many fights and false apologies on both sides issued. He loved his wife and daughter equally, but they only loved each other when he commanded.[2]

Viserys was aware of the rumors that Rhaenyra's sons were fathered by Harwin Strong and not her husband Laenor Velaryon, but commanded that anyone heard spreading the rumor would lose their tongue. Several members of Ród Velaryonów did when Rhaenyra argued her second oldest son should inherit Driftmark. After issuing the order to remove their tongues, Viserys slipped and cut his hand to the bone on the Żelazny Tron. He suffered a fever from an infection and only recovered after two of his fingers were removed by Grandmaestar Gerardys. He never sat on the throne again.[2]

Viserys died on the third day of third moon of 129AC during a nap in the Czerwona Twierdza of Królewska Przystań.[5] After Viserys' death, the eldest son of his second wife, Aegon, was crowned Aegon II by the Lord Commander of the Gwardia Królewska, Criston Cole, and his widow, Queen Alicent. This led to a war between Rhaenyra and Aegon II, better known as the Taniec Smoków.
