Princess Myriah Nymeros Martell was the wife of King Daeron II Targaryen.

History

Myriah was the eldest daughter of the Prince of Dorne during the reign of King Daeron I Targaryen.[1] She had a younger brother, Prince Maron Martell.[2]

After King Daeron I had been killed in Dorne in 161 AC, King Baelor I Targaryen freed the Dornish hostages in King's Landing and returned them to Dorne personally, walking barefoot. Once he reached Sunspear, he spoke with the Prince of Dorne, and agreed upon a peace, which included the betrothal of Myriah to Baelor's cousin, Prince Daeron Targaryen. The two would marry once they were both of age.[1]

Myriah married Daeron years later, and would have four children by him: Baelor, Aerys, Rhaegel and Maekar.[3]

Behind the Scenes

When writing The World of Ice & Fire, George R. R. Martin changed Myriah Martell's name to "Mariah".[1][3] But when writing Fire & Blood, George changed back to the original spelling "Myriah".[5] Latest version of The World of Ice & Fire also changed to "Myriah".[6]
