Princess Elaena Targaryen was the third daughter and youngest child of King Aegon III Targaryen and his wife, Queen Daenaera Velaryon.

Appearance and Character

According to semi-canon sources, Elaena was not a great beauty like her sisters, and at age eleven was even described as a skinny little thing, though her beauty matured as she got older, and men said that she was more beautiful at age seventy than at age seventeen. Her eyes were a soft lilac, her mouth thin-lipped and often angry. Her hair was a platinum white with a bright golden streak down the middle, an unusual color even for the Targaryens. She wore it long, pulled back, and braided, and was always being told it was her crowning beauty. She did however cut it off, in retaliation against her brother Baelor, for imprisoning her in the Maidenvault. Afterwards she wore her hair in short for years. While appearance-wise she differed much from her sisters, character-wise, she had more than a little of her sister Daena's wilfullness, as she would prove when she grew older. She liked to dress in black as a child, simply because Daena also dressed in black.[2]

History

Elaena was the third daughter and youngest child of King Aegon III Targaryen and Queen Daenaera of House Velaryon, and was born in 150 AC. She had two older brothers, Daeron and Baelor, and two older sisters, Daena and Rhaena. Elaena's most cherished possession was a dragon's egg whose stony shell showed the same colors as her hair.

Elaena and her sisters were the infamous sisters of King Baelor I who were housed in the Maidenvault. The three sisters were known aftwerwards 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. Elaena was locked away at age of eleven. Overall, she married three times in her life, twice at a king's behest and once for passion, and gave birth to seven children in total. 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, She wished to marry him but he later disappeared at sea. She had two bastard children, Jon and Jeyne Waters. These were for first two children.

She married her first husband the wealthy but elderly Ossifer Plumm in 176 AC. He died on their wedding night (supposedly after seeing her naked), she claimed he impregnated her though and gave birth to a son called Viserys Plumm (her third child), though many were dubious of his parentage, and had suspicions on who might actually be the boys father, none dared speak their suspicions aloud however.

Her second husband Ronnel Penrose she wed in the reign of Daeron the Good. He sat on the king's small council as Master of Coin, they had four children together. It was widely known that she was the one performing the duties as the Master of Coin, as she was very shrewd and intelligent with money while Ser Ronnel while being a good man was one without a great facility for numbers. King Daeron trusted her with many important matters of state and she grew influential.

After her husbands death her third and final marriage was for love and by her own choosing. Ser Micheal Manwoody who was an envoy on behalf of the Iron Throne to the Iron Bank of Braavos. Elaena said it wasn't Micheals intelligence or wit she fell in love with but his love of music. [3]
