Lady Larra Rogare was a member of House Rogare of Lys who became the wife of Prince Viserys Targaryen, brother of King Aegon III Targaryen. She abandoned Viserys before his ascendance to the Iron Throne, thus she never became queen consort. Larra was the mother of King Aegon IV Targaryen, Prince Aemon the Dragonknight, and Queen Naerys Targaryen.

Appearance and Character

Tall and willowy, with the silver-gold hair and purple eyes of old Valyria, Larra was considered a great beauty.[3]

History

Lady Larra was a noblewoman born to the wealthy and influential House Rogare, a banking family from the Free City of Lys. She was the daughter of Lysandro Rogare, known as Lysandro the Magnificent, and the Rogare Bank even surpassed that of the Iron Bank of Braavos during its prime.[4]

Larra wed Prince Viserys Targaryen in 134 AC, at the age of nineteen.[4] Not long thereafter, Lord Alyn Velaryon found Viserys in Lys, and paid a vast sum of coin for the prince's release. Viserys was taken back to Westeros, and Larra went with him, accompanied by her brothers, Lysaro amd Moredo.[5] In King's Landing in 135 AC, she gave birth to the first of her three children with Viserys, Prince Aegon.[3]

There were many at court who mistrusted the ambitious Rogare family who soon became embroiled in the conflicts of the regency of Prince Viserys's brother, King Aegon III Targaryen. Larra's brothers were arrested, and Lord Thaddeus Rowan, the Hand of the King, was tortured for information, having been suspected to have been working together with the Rogares. Ser Marston Waters of the Kingsguard, the new Hand, ordered the arrest of Larra, but Aegon III and Viserys refused to give her up. They were besieged in Maegor's Holdfast for eighteen days, before Marston fulfilled his king's command to arrest those who had implicated Lord Rowan and the Rogares falsely. Marston was then killed trying to apprehend Ser Mervyn Flowers, also of the Kingsguard.[5]

In 136 AC, Larra gave birth to a second son, Prince Aemon. A daughter, Princess Naerys, followed in 138 AC.[3] Larra never felt part of the court at King's Landing, however, and was never truly happy in Westeros.[3] A year after having given birth to Naerys, in 139 AC, Larra returned to Lys. She eventually died in 145 AC[2] of unknown causes.

Prince Viserys, an otherwise charming man, grew stern after Larra left him and their children.[5]
