Lady Serenei of Lys, also called Sweet Serenei, was the ninth and last mistress of Aegon IV Targaryen. There was one child of their union, Shiera Seastar, the last of the king's Great Bastards.[1]

Appearance and Character

Serenei was considered by many to be the most lovely of Aegon's mistresses.[1] She was cold and haughty towards others at court.[2]


Lady Serenei was the last daughter from an ancient but impoverished Valyrian noble family of Lys. She was brought to King's Landing by Lord Jon Hightower, the new Hand of the King. Rumors spread that Serenei was much older than the king, practicing dark arts to retain her youth and beauty.[2] She died giving birth to the last of the king’s bastard children, a girl called Shiera Seastar.[1]
