According to a semi-canon source, Viserys II was clean-shaven with long hair. He had a prominent nose, bushy eyebrows and a shrewd, calculating look to him. He wore the simple crown of Aegon III.
In 129 AL, at the behest of his half brother Jacaerys Velaryon, Viserys was sent to Essos to be fostered by a prince of Pentos until his mother Rhaenyra secured the Iron Throne. Ships of The Greens captured him on his eastern voyage.
Viserys served as Hand to his nephews and was instrumental in keeping the realm intact while Daeron I warred and Baelor I prayed. It was rumored that he had the stonemason Baelor I appointed as High Septon poisoned.
Viserys II ascended to throne later in life after the death of his nephew, Baelor I, also known as Baelor the Blessed. Viserys II is not remembered fondly in Westeros, as some accuse him of poisoning his nephew Baelor I to gain the throne and doing nothing once he gained it. Viserys II reigned for only a year, but he truly ruled and preserved the land for much longer.
