"Rhaenyra Targaryen was murdered by her brother, or rather, his dragon. It ate her while her son watched. What's left of her is buried in the crypts right down there."
―King Joffrey Baratheon points out what little remains of Rhaenyra in the Great Sept of Baelor[src]

Aegon II Targaryen is an unseen character in Game of Thrones. He is long dead by the time of the series. He was a King of the Targaryen dynasty.



Aegon II was a King of the Targaryen dynasty. He was the half-brother of Rhaenyra Targaryen.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Aegon II took the Iron Throne at the behest of Lord Commander Criston Cole of the Kingsguard, thereafter known as Criston the Kingmaker, even though his father, Viserys I, intended Rhaenyra to succeed him. Rhaenyra disputed his ascension and claimed the throne for herself, leading to the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons. Aegon managed to defeat his sister, and fed her to his dragon. Shortly thereafter he died himself, leaving no male heirs, which led to his nephew Aegon III, Rhaenyra's son, taking the throne.
