Prince Jaehaerys Targaryen was the fourthborn son of King Aerys II Targaryen and Queen Rhaella Targaryen.[1]

History

Prince Jaehaerys was born in 274 AC. His birth seemed to abate the madness that was rising in King Aerys II Targaryen. Aerys was so joyful over Jaehaerys' birth, that he seemed to become as he had been in his youth. Jaehaerys died later in the same year, though, causing Aerys to despair.[1]

In a black rage, Aerys decided that Jaehaerys's death was the fault of his wet nurse. The woman was beheaded, but it did not take long for King Aerys to decide that Jaehaerys had been poisoned, and that the poisoner had been Aerys's mistress, the daughter of a household knight. The girl and her family were tortured to death. The entire family admitted to the murder, though their confessions differed greatly.[1]

This act lead to Aerys fasting for a fortnight, making a walk of repentance, and praying with the High Septon, before announcing that he would foreswear all his mistresses.[1]
