Megette, also known as Merry Meg, was the young and buxom wife of a blacksmith. She was the second of Aegon IV Targaryen's mistresses.

History

While riding near Fairmarket in 155 AC Prince Aegon’s horse threw a shoe, and when he sought out the local smith, he came to notice the man’s young wife. He went on to buy her for seven gold dragons along with the threat of Ser Joffrey Staunton of the Kingsguard. Megette was installed in a house in King’s Landing; she and Aegon were even “wed” in a secret ceremony conducted by a mummer playing a septon. Prince Viserys put an end to it, returning Megette to her husband and placing their daughters with the Faith to be trained as septas. Megette was beaten to death within a year by the blacksmith.

Family

Megette gave Aegon four children in as many years; Alysanne, Lily, Willow and Rosey.[1]
