Prince Joffrey Velaryon, also known as Joff, was the thirdborn son of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and her first husband, Ser Laenor Velaryon.[1][2] He was a dragonrider whose dragon was Tyraxes.[2]

Appearance & Character

Joff was a strapping lad. Like his brothers Jacaerys and Lucerys, he had brown eyes and hair, and a pug nose. This caused many at court to suspect that Ser Harwin Strong was their true father.[1][3]

History

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.[1]

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.[2] He was named the Prince of Dragonstone after the death of Jacaerys at the Battle of the Gullet.[4]

Joffrey died during the storming of the Dragonpit trying to ride Syrax in order to save the dragons in the Dragonpit.[2]

Quotes by Joffrey

I want to fight for you, Mother, as my brothers did. Let me prove that I am as brave as they were.[2]
- Joffrey to Rhaenyra Targaryen
