Daemon III Blackfyre was the eldest son of Haegon I Blackfyre.

History

Youth

Born in exile,[1] Daemon was the eldest son of Haegon, who was the fourth son of Daemon I Blackfyre.

Fourth Blackfyre Rebellion

Following the death of his father Haegon and the escape of House Blackfyre's greatest supporter, Aegor Rivers, Daemon was crowned king by Aegor, who was called Bittersteel.[2] He led the Fourth Blackfyre Rebellion together with Bittersteel and the Golden Company landed on Massey's Hook. Few rallied to Daemon's banners, however. King Aegon V Targaryen rode out to meet him, with his three sons by his side. Eventually, in the Battle of Wendwater Bridge, Daemon was slain by Ser Duncan the Tall of the Kingsguard and the Blackfyres suffered a shattering defeat.[3]
