Aenys I was the eldest son of Aegon I and Rhaenys Targaryen. He became the second King to sit on the Iron Throne. He was considered weakly at birth and early childhood, but once he bonded with his dragon, Quicksilver, he rapidly became stronger and more confident. He was married to Alyssa Velaryon. Their marriage was a political match.
Aenys was tall like his father, but softer, slender, weedy and dreamy. He was pale with lilac eyes. His hair was perfumed, shoulder-length in ringlet curls. He wore a silky "Three Musketeers Style" pointed mustache and beard.
Aenys was a weakling. His ascension to the throne, upon the death of his father, led to the Faith of the Seven uprising, who considered him weak and could not condone him being born out of incest. Aenys proved to be weak and indecisive during this crisis, and was unable to effectively take action against it. Much of the responsibility fell on his half-brother and Hand of the King Maegor.
Aenys died in 42AC after only ruling for five years, at the age of 35. Despite having at least one son, Jaehaerys, he was succeeded by his notoriously brutal half-brother, Maegor I, who had served as the Hand during his reign.
