|Book||The World of Ice & Fire (mentioned)|
Prince Daeron Targaryen was the youngest son and fourthborn child of King Aegon V Targaryen and Queen Betha Blackwood.
Daeron was a warrior who rejoiced in tourneys and battle.
When both were nine years old, Prince Daeron was betrothed to Lady Olenna Redwyne in 237 AC, a betrothal arranged by his mother, Betha. After his three older siblings had broken their own betrothals—Duncan to marry Jenny of Oldstones, Jaehaerys and Shaera to marry each other—Daeron broke his betrothal to Olenna as well when he was eighteen years old, in 246 AC.
While his brothers had broken their betrothals for other women, this was not the case for Daeron. He preferred the companionship of Ser Jeremy Norridge, a young knight whom he had befriended when they were squires together at Highgarden.
In 251 AC, Prince Daeron led an army against the Rat, the Hawk and the Pig. Though they managed to quash the rebellion, Daeron was killed in battle, as was Jeremy, who died by his side.
A Storm of Swords
When speaking with Sansa Stark in King's Landing, Lady Olenna Redwyne tells the tale of how she had once been betrothed to a Targaryen prince. Olenna claims that it was she who had not wanted the marriage, and that it was she who had "put an end to it".
A Dance with Dragons
Ser Barristan Selmy recollects how all three sons of Aegon V Targaryen had married for love (interestingly including Daeron), and how their father had let them have their way.
