Shaera Targaryen was the eldest daughter of King Aegon V Targaryen and Queen Betha Blackwood.[2][3] She became the queen of her brother, Jaehaerys II Targaryen.

History

Shaera was betrothed to Luthor Tyrell by her mother, Queen Betha Blackwood, in 237 AC, while her older brother, Prince Jaehaerys, was betrothed to Celia Tully. After their brother, Prince Duncan, defied King Aegon V Targaryen and married following his heart, Shaera and Jaehaerys eluded their guards and were secretly married in 240 AC. By the time this became known to their royal parents, Jaehaerys and Shaera had already consummated the marriage, forcing Aegon to accept it.[2] The marriage caused anger from Houses Tyrell and Tully.[2]

The marriage of Shaera and Jaehaerys yielded two children, Aerys and Rhaella.[2] Though it is unknown when Shaera died, and while it is unknown whether she had been present at Summerhall for the tragedy of Summerhall, it is known that Shaera outlived her father, King Aegon V, as she is mentioned to have remained in King's Landing with her brother and husband, the now King Jaehaerys II, when the armies marched out to the Stepstones to fight the War of the Ninepenny Kings.[4]
