Biography

Background

Daenerys was the daughter of King Aegon IV Targaryen and Queen Naerys Targaryen, born on the year 182 after Aegon's Landing. She was the sister of King Daeron II Targaryen. He also had a half-brother, Daemon Blackfyre, born of the affair between his father and Queen Daena Targaryen, the sister-wife of Baelor I Targaryen. She married the Prince of Dorne, Maron of House Martell.

Through her brother King Daeron II, Daenerys was the aunt of King Maekar, and thus the great-aunt of both King Aegon V the Unlikely and Aegon V's brother, Maester Aemon of the Night's Watch.

Season 1

Daenerys, along with her family, is mentioned in the House Targaryen's entry of the book The Lineage and Histories of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Princess Daenerys was born well after her older brother, Daeron II, to the point that Daeron had already married and had a son, Baelor Breakspear. Her betrothal to the Prince of Dorne, Maron Martell, was brokered by her brother Daeron as part of the treaty bringing Dorne under the authority of the Iron Throne. Daenerys supposedly loved her bastard half-brother, Daemon Blackfyre. It was said the main reason Daemon rose in rebellion against Daeron was that Daenerys was denied to him. A year after the rebellion concluded, in 197 AL, the marriage between Daenerys and Maron was carried out and Dorne formally joined to the rest of the Seven Kingdoms.

After Daemon's death, Prince Maron built his new bride the Water Gardens, a place of beauty made of colored marble with pools and trees. Her children played in the pools along with the children of other highborn lords. One day when the sun was hot, she took pity on the children of the servants and guards and allowed them to play in the pools with the highborn children, starting a tradition that is still kept in Dorne to this day.

While her descendant Daenerys Stormborn is the second member of the Targaryen family to be named "Daenerys", Daenerys Stormborn is not called "Daenerys II", because "Daenerys, daughter of Aegon IV" never ruled as a queen. In fact, there has never been a ruling Targaryen queen before. When Daenerys Stormborn proclaims herself the rightful heir of the Targaryen dynasty (after her brother dies), she is officially styled as "Daenerys of House Targaryen, First of Her Name" (this has been confirmed in the TV series, as Xaro refers to her as this in "The Ghost of Harrenhal").
