Prince Aegon Targaryen was the thirdborn son of King Aerys II Targaryen and Queen Rhaella Targaryen.[1]

History

Prince Aegon was born in 272 AC, two months premature. As his brother Daeron before him, Aegon did not live long. He died in 273 AC.[1]

By the time of Aegon's birth and death, his father, King Aerys II Targaryen, decided that Queen Rhaella had been unfaithful, and that none of Rhaella's stillbirths (Shaena in 267 AC, an unknown stillbirth in 270 AC), miscarriages (263 AC, 264 AC, 271 AC) or dead princes (Daeron in 269 AC, Aegon in 273 AC) had been his.[1]
