History

Gael was the youngest of the children of Alysanne and Jaehaerys, and her mother's favorite. She disappeared from court in 99 AC, and was said to have died from a summer fever. However, she had actually committed suicide by drowning herself in the Blackwater Rush. The reason for her suicide was that she had been seduced and abandoned by a traveling singer, who had left her pregnant. In her grief, Queen Alysanne would die within a year after Gael's death.[3]
