Princess Myriah Nymeros Martell was the wife and queen consort of King Daeron II Targaryen.
In 161 AC, after Daeron was killed during his attempted conquest of Dorne, King Baelor I Targaryen freed Dornish hostages in King's Landing and returned them to Dorne personally, walking barefoot. Once he reached Sunspear, Baelor spoke with the Prince of Dorne, and agreed upon a peace, which included the betrothal of Myriah to Baelor's cousin, Prince Daeron Targaryen. The two would marry once they were both of age.
Myriah eventually married Daeron, and they would have four sons together: Baelor (born 170 AC), Aerys (born 172–176 AC), Rhaegel (born 173–177 AC), and Maekar (born 174–178 AC). Baelor took after his mother in appearance, with dark hair and eyes.
Behind the Scenes
In A Song of Ice and Fire, the character was originally named Myriah Martell. However, when writing The World of Ice & Fire, George R. R. Martin changed her name to "Mariah". But when writing Fire & Blood, George changed back to the original spelling, "Myriah". The latest version of The World of Ice & Fire has been edited to change her name to "Myriah".
