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

History

Jaehaerys's birth 274 AC seemed to abate the madness that was rising in King Aerys II Targaryen, who was so joyful he seemed to become as he had been in his youth. Jaehaerys died later in the same year, though, causing Aerys to despair. The rageful king blamed the prince's death on his wet nurse and had her beheaded.[1]

Later deciding that the royal mistress, the daughter of a household knight, had poisoned his son, Aerys tortured the girl and her family to death. The entire family admitted to the murder, though their confessions differed greatly. This led to Aerys fasting for a fortnight, making a walk of repentance, and praying with the High Septon, before announcing that he would remain loyal to Queen Rhaella Targaryen.[1]
