Daeron Velaryon was a member of House Velaryon during the reign of kings Viserys I, Aegon II and Aegon III Targaryen. He was a son of Ser Vaemond Velaryon and his lady wife, and had a brother, Daemion Velaryon.[3] His grandson, King Daeron I Targaryen, was presumably named after him.

History

In 126 AC, after the death of his father at the hands of Prince Daemon Targaryen, Daeron sailed to King's Landing with his mother, his brother Daemion, and his father's five cousins to seek justice from King Viserys I Targaryen and put forward their claims on Driftmark.[4][5]

In 132 AC, following the death of Lord Corlys, Daeron and Daemion contested the claim of their illegitimate cousin Alyn Velaryon as Lord of the Tides and put forth their own claims before the council of regents in King's Landing. When the Hand of the King, Ser Tyland Lannister, and the regents ruled against them, they chose to accept the decision and be reconciled with Lord Alyn, who rewarded them with lands on Driftmark on the condition that they contribute ships to his fleet.[3]

During the Daughters' War, Daeron joined his cousin Alyn in the attack on the Braavosi fleet in the Stepstones, stationed around Bloodstone. The attack was a complete victory for the Velaryon fleet, but Daeron perished when his ship True Heart went down in battle against the Braavosi.[1][6]

Family

Daeron was married to Hazel Harte. Their only child together was Lady Daenaera Velaryon, who would become the queen consort of King Aegon III Targaryen[6] and the mother of his five children.[7]
