Queen Betha Blackwood, known as Black Betha, was a member of House Blackwood who became queen consort to King Aegon V Targaryen.
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.
The galley captained by Ser Davos Seaworth, Black Betha, is probably named in her honor.
The daughter of Lord Blackwood of Raventree Hall, Betha married Prince Aegon Targaryen in 220 AC at the age of 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.
It is unknown if Betha was in attendance during the tragedy at Summerhall.
