Lady Rhaena Targaryen, also known as Rhaena of Pentos, was a daughter of Prince Daemon Targaryen and Lady Laena Velaryon. Her twin sister was Baela Targaryen.[1]

History

Youth

Rhaena was born in Pentos in 116 AC.[3] She was named after her maternal grandmother, Princess Rhaenys Targaryen.[3] When she was half a year old, she sailed from Pentos to Driftmark with her mother, Laena Velaryon, and her twin sister, Baela Targaryen.[3] In 117 AC, Rhaena was presented at court by her father, Prince Daemon Targaryen.[4] In 118 AC, with the blessing of King Viserys I Targaryen, Rhaena was betrothed, at the age of two, to Prince Lucerys Velaryon, her cousin.[3] Rhaena had a dragon egg, but Rhaena's hatchling was unhealthy and died within hours of emerging from its egg. Eventuelly, an egg from another clutch, laid by Syrax, was given to Rhaena, and it was said that she slept with it every night and prayed for a dragon to match her sister's.[1][5]

Dance of the Dragons

During the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons, Rhaena was chosen to accompany Prince Joffrey Velaryon to Gulltown for their protection, although they were told it was to defend the Vale of Arryn against King Aegon II Targaryen's dragons. Rhaena brought three dragon eggs with her to the Vale where she prayed nightly for their hatching.[1] She remained in the Vale throughout the duration of the war as the ward of Lady Jeyne Arryn.[6] Eventually she bonded with the dragon Morning, towards the end of the Dance.[7]

Reign of Aegon III

After the war ended and the ascension of her cousin and half-brother King Aegon III Targaryen, Rhaena and Baela were thought to be the only living Targaryens aside from the king and his queen, as Prince Viserys Targaryen was presumed dead at the time. Though the younger twin, Rhaena was considered to be named the heir to the Iron Throne by some as she still had a dragon, unlike her sister, and was less willful in character.[8]

Rhaena and her sister introduced Daenaera Velaryon to their half-brother, King Aegon III Targaryen at the Maiden's Day Cattle Show, leading to the couple's marriage.[9][2] Rhaena married Ser Corwyn Corbray, by whom she had no children, and later Garmund Hightower, by whom she had six daughters.[10]
