"Illyrio and I grew so rich that Illyrio wed a princess of Pentos."

Illyrio Mopatis's first wife was a princess of Pentos.


The princess married Illyrio Mopatis due to the wealth he had gained through robberies he had committed with his friend Varys.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Illyrio Mopatis' first wife was a cousin of the Prince of Pentos and the daughter of a Magister. She was willing to marry him after he gained a respectable position with the help of Varys. The marriage eventually ended (it is not specified whether she died or left Illyrio) and Illyrio then married a former bedslave named Serra, for which the prince banished him from the palace.
