King Maegor I Targaryen was the third Targaryen King to sit the Iron Throne. His actions during his six-year long reign led to him being remembered as Maegor the Cruel. Maegor was the youngest son of King Aegon I Targaryen, born by Aegon's elder sister-wife, Visenya. He was mostly raised on Dragonstone, and came to be referred to as the "prince on Dragonstone". Maegor had no true friends in his youth, keeping mostly to himself.

He claimed the dragon Balerion after his father's death.

Maegor was send to Pentos in exile, but was brought back to Westeros by his mother when Aenys died on Dragonstone in 42 AC.

He executed all the men who had constructed the Red Keep to preserve its secrets, and forcefully married three women whom he had widowed, in his attempts to beget an heir. Read more…

- “It was a hard thing young Samwell asked of me. When Lord Qorgyle was chosen, I told myself, ‘No matter, he has been longer on the Wall than you have, your time will come.’ When it was Lord Mormont, I thought, ‘He is strong and fierce, but he is old, your time may yet come.’ But you are half a boy, Lord Snow, and now I must return to the Shadow Tower knowing that my time will never come. Do not make me die regretful. Your uncle was a great man. Your lord father and his father as well. I shall expect full as much of you.” —Ser Denys Mallister, to Jon Snow
