His wife bore him two stillborn sons.[4] The personal coat of arms of the prince Valarr Targaryen consists of coat of arms House Targaryen with a red border.[5]

Appearance

He looked very much like his father, though he was smaller and thinner. He had brown hair, with a streak of silver-gold running through it. He had blue eyes.[5]

History

The Tourney at Ashford Meadow

Valarr was one of the original champions for Lady Ashford at the start of the Ashford Tourney, but his status as a Targaryen prince and grandson of the king prevented him from facing any really dangerous opponent. He won at least nine jousts, including against Ser Abelar Hightower and Lord Gawen Swann, to still remain a champion after the first days jousting.[5]

After Ser Duncan the Tall struck Prince Aerion Targaryen, the Prince demanded a Trial of Seven. Ser Duncan needed one more person to take his side in the trial, a knight whom he originally thought was Valarr, but turned out to be his father wearing Valarr's armour, joined his cause.[5]

Ser Duncan met with Prince Valarr standing vigil over his fallen father, tried to offer his sympathies but the Prince just dismissed him;

My father was only nine-and-thirty. He had it in him to be a great king, the greatest since Aegon the Dragon. Why would the gods take him, and leave you? Begone with you, Ser Duncan. Begone.[5]

Death

Valarr died during the Great Spring Sickness, only hours before his grandfather King Daeron II.[3] Valarr may have been the Hand of the King when he died.[3]

Legacy

Valarr appears to Ser Duncan the Tall in a dream, telling Dunk that his father, Prince Baelor would have been the best king since Aegon the Dragon.[3]

As they ride past a head on a spike, Dunk recognizes the priest who had been preaching three days earlier about how Bloodraven had killed Prince Valarr's sons in their mothers womb. The priest even suggested that Bloodraven was responsible for Valarr's death.[4]
