Lady Mysaria was a dancer from Lys. Lyseni prostitutes and her rivals dubbed her Misery, the White Worm, because of her pale appearance and her reputation.[1][2]


Mysaria became the lover of Prince Daemon Targaryen in King's Landing, and she quickly became his favorite. Around 105 AC, Mysaria became pregnant with Daemon's child while living at Dragonstone. Daemon gave her a dragon egg for the child, which angered King Viserys I Targaryen. The king ordered Daemon to return the egg and send Mysaria back to Lys. On her return to Lys, she lost the child during a storm on the narrow sea.[1]

During the Dance of the Dragons, Mysaria was involved in the assassination of Prince Jaehaerys, the eldest son of King Aegon II Targaryen, when Daemon desired revenge for the death of his stepson, Prince Lucerys Velaryon. She was Daemon's go-between, a "pale stranger" whom he trusted. To kill the prince she hired two assassins, Blood and Cheese.[3][4]

At some point Mysaria became Daemon's mistress of whisperers,[1][2] but didn't join Rhaenyra's small council when the blacks took King's Landing.[5] She gave warnings to Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen during the riot of King's Landing.[3]


Brynden Rivers was a Hand of the King also said to have "rivaled Lady Misery" as a master of whispers.[6]
