Rhaella Targaryen (daughter of Aegon)
|Born||In 42 AC, at Casterly Rock|
|Book(s)||The World of Ice and Fire (mentioned)|
Rhaella's parents, Prince Aegon and Princess Rhaena, were married in 41 AC. As this was an incestuous marriage, it led to a rebellion of the Faith of the Seven. When Rhaella's grandfather, King Aenys I Targaryen, died, Aegon was not crowned king, even though he was Aenys's eldest son and heir. Instead, Aenys's younger brother was crowned Maegor I Targaryen.
Aegon was killed in battle in 43 AC. Rhaena disguised Rhaella and twin sister Aerea and sent them away with allies—even refusing to know where they were, for further protection—but the children were found by Tyanna, and used to force Rhaena to marry Maegor in 47 AC. Because Maegor had no children of his own Aerea was named his heir, while her uncle, Prince Jaehaerys, was disinherited.
It is unknown what happened to Rhaella later in life.
Early editions of The World of Ice and Fire misspelled her name as "Rhalla", but this was corrected in later editions as "Rhaella".
