Maegor Targaryen (son of Aerion)
|Born||In 232 AC|
The World of Ice & Fire (mentioned)|
A Clash of Kings (mentioned)
Born in 232 AC, Maegor was given his name by his sire who died the same year he was born. According to a semi-canon source, this name was a provocation, since King Maegor I Targaryen had a poor reputation. Prince Aerion died later that year from drinking wildfire.
After the death of his grandfather, King Maekar I Targaryen, Maegor was one of the claimants in the Great Council of 233 AC. Only a few spoke for him, and his claim was turned down because he was an infant and there were fears Maegor would inherit his father's madness. His uncle Aegon V Targaryen was instead chosen king.
