In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Dyanna Dayne was the wife of Maekar Targaryen and the mother of Daeron, Aerion, Aemon, Daella, Aegon, and Rhae Targaryen.
She is mentioned in "The Hedge Knight", the first of the Tales of Dunk and Egg novellas. When Egg offers to squire for Dunk at the tourney at Ashford, Dunk asks what his mother would say of it. Egg replies that she would not have anything to say, because she is dead. Her name is revealed in the companion book The World of Ice and Fire.
It isn't clear exactly when Dyanna died. Egg was around 10 years old at the time of the Tourney at Ashford in 209 AC, when he said his mother was dead. Egg also had one younger sibling, his sister Rhae, so Dyanna must have been alive until at least 201 AC - probably closer to 201 AC than 209 AC, given that Dyanna was old enough to interact with other characters by around 209-210 AC. Whatever the case, Maekar did not become king until many years after Dyanna died, so she was never a Queen Consort (indeed, in 209 AC Maekar's own father was still alive and king, and Maekar's elder brother Aerys I ruled after him, before Maekar succeeded to the throne).
