History

Childhood

Maelor was born in 127 AC, the third child of his parents, Prince Aegon and Princess Helaena Targaryen. In 129 AC, on the third day of the third moon, Maelor, his two elder siblings, and his mother, went to visit their grandfather, King Viserys I Targaryen. While Viserys told Maelor's siblings a story, Maelor himself was given a pearl ring from Viserys's finger to play with.[1]

The Dance of the Dragons

After King Viserys I died, in King's Landing, Maelor's father, Prince Aegon was crowned as King Aegon II Targaryen, despite Aegon's older sister Princess Rhaenyra having been the King's proclaimed heir. This caused a war known as the Dance of the Dragons.[3][1]

With his father now king, the two-year-old prince became second in line to the Iron Throne. Later that year, Maelor's elder brother Prince Jaehaerys was murdered. The assassins Blood and Cheese had snuck into the Tower of the Hand, where Queen Helaena would visit her mothers chambers every night with Maelor, Jaehaerys and Jaehaera. Once Helaena and the children had arrived, they locked the doors and killed the guards, and forced Helaena to choose which of her sons would die. Helaena, after having offered herself, eventually picked Maelor. The two killers chose Prince Jaehaerys anyway, and cut off his head. This left young Maelor with the knowledge that his mother had been willing to sacrifice him. With Prince Jaehaerys dead, Maelor became King Aegon II's heir and the de facto Prince of Dragonstone.[3]

During the fall of King's Landing, the master of whisperers Lord Larys the Clubfoot smuggled Maelor and his sister Jaehaera to safety, charging Ser Rickard Thorne of the Kingsguard to bring Maelor to Oldtown.[3] At Bitterbridge Rickard was brought down by a mob, and Maelor was torn apart as the people of the mob each sought to claim him as their own prize.[2]
