Appearance & Character
When Joffrey was three years old, his ten-year-old dragonless half-uncle, Prince Aemond Targaryen, slapped him in an attempt to claim Vhagar for himself. Joffrey called for his two older brothers, and in the ensuing fight Aemond lost an eye.
Joffrey was twelve years old at the start of the civil war which became known as the Dance of the Dragons. Joff was ordered to Gulltown to defend the Vale of Arryn against King Aegon II Targaryen's dragons, with Rhaena Targaryen chosen to accompany him. Grand Maester Munkun suggests that it was Jacaerys's desire to keep his brother far away from the fighting. He was named the Prince of Dragonstone after the death of Jacaerys at the Battle of the Gullet.
