Lucerys Velaryon (master of ships)
Lord of the Tides|
Master of Driftmark
Master of ships
|Book(s)||The World of Ice & Fire (mentioned)|
Serving on the small council as the master of ships, Lucerys was a strong supporter of King Aerys II Targaryen during the Year of the False Spring. Called "lickspittle lords" by Maester Yandel, Lucerys and the lords of the small council gained much from the king's madness, eagerly seizing opportunities to speak ill of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen and inflaming the king's suspicion against his son. In return for Lucerys's support, King Aerys II showered him and his other supporters with honors, offices, and lands.
The fate of Lucerys during Robert's Rebellion is as yet unknown, although the royal fleet of House Targaryen, anchored at Dragonstone, was destroyed by a great storm when Princess Daenerys Targaryen was born.
