Appearance

Naerys had the Targaryen looks, a very fine and delicate beauty, almost unworldy. She was very slender and small, with big purple eyes and fine, pale, porcelain skin, near translucent. [1] Naerys dressed well, but simply, and seldom wore her crown or any other jewellery. Though she had the silver-gold hair of the Targaryens, she often bound it up beneath a hair net or concealed it beneath a cowl. She bore a certain resemblance to Daenerys Targaryen.

History

According to semi-canon sources, she almost died in the cradle and was sickly for most of her life, she found most physical activity to be very taxing. She ate but little and was painfully thin, almost emaciated.

Naerys loved music and poetry, played the harp very well, enjoyed sewing and embroidering. She was devout in her faith, and often found solace in the pages of the Seven-Pointed Star. Once Daeron was born she asked Aegon to release her from her vows so she could join the Faith but he refused her. She was unhappy in her marriage and it was said only her son Daeron or her brother Aemon could make her smile.[2]

Her brother Prince Aemon championed her against the slanders of Ser Morgil.[3]Much later in her life she gave birth to a daughter Daenerys.
