Queen Betha Blackwood, known as Black Betha, was a member of House Blackwood who became queen consort to King Aegon V Targaryen.[1]

Appearance and Character

Betha was known as Black Betha because of her dark eyes and hair. She was a spirited woman also considered stubborn or willful.[1]


The daughter of Lord Blackwood of Raventree Hall, Betha married Prince Aegon in 220 AC when she was nineteen. While Betha and Aegon had married for love, Betha assisted in arranging politically advantageous betrothals for their children. The youths resisted Betha's and Aegon's plans, however, and the children instead married for love as their parents had done.[1] It is unknown if Betha was in attendance during the tragedy at Summerhall.
