Aerys II Targaryen's last mistress was the daughter of one of King Aerys II Targaryen's household knights.[1]

Appearance

She was a pretty young girl.[1]

History

After the death of his son, Prince Jaehaerys, King Aerys went into a black rage and blamed Jaehaerys' wet nurse for the death of the princeling. Aerys later announced Jaehaerys had been poisoned by his own mistress. She and all her kin were tortured to death.[1]

Afterward Aerys, who was known for his infidelities, vowed to stay faithful to his sister-wife, Queen Rhaella Targaryen. According to the chronicles, Aerys respected his vow and did not take another mistress.[1]
