Rhaenys Targaryen was the daughter of prince Rhaegar Targaryen and Elia Martell. She had brown hair and looked like a Martell. [1]

History

She had a small black kitten that she named Balerion, after the great black dragon of Aegon I.[2] During the Sack of King's Landing Rhaenys was stabbed for "half a hundred thrusts" by Ser Amory Lorch.[3] Tywin Lannnister had commanded the deaths of Rhaenys and her brother Aegon to prove his loyalty to Robert Baratheon.[4]

After their death Tywin Lannister had presented their bodies to Robert cloathed in red Lannister cloaks.[5]
