Princess Elaena Targaryen was the youngest daughter of King Aegon III Targaryen.


According to semi-canon sources, Elaena was not as pretty as her sisters, but her beauty matured as she got older. Her eyes were soft lilac and as a child, she wore her hair in a braid. However, after cutting it off in retaliation against her brother, she wore her hair short for a while. Her hair was platinum-white with a gold streak down the middle, which she wore long, pulled back and in a braid. She liked to dress in black.[2]


Elaena and her sisters Rhaena and Daena were the infamous sisters of King Baelor I Targaryen who were housed in the Maidenvault, known as the "Three Maids in the Tower." Baelor imprisoned them in comfortable confinement so the sight of them would not tempt him or others in his court to mortal lusts.

She was locked away at age of eleven. Unhappy with her brother, she cut off her famous braid in protest. She married three times, twice at a king's behest and once for passion, and gave birth to seven trueborn children. She then declared that if seven was sufficient for the Gods, it would do for her as well. Although she had three husbands during her lifetime, the great love of her life was her cousin, Alyn Velaryon, with whom she had two bastard children, Jon and Jeyne Waters.

She was known as shrewd and intelligent, to the point that even though her husband sat on the king's small council as Master of Coin, it was widely known that she was the one performing the duties.[3]
