BiographyEdit

BackgroundEdit

Maekar was a King in the Targaryen dynasty. Unlike the majority of their forbears, Maekar and his siblings - Baelor, Aerys, Aelinor, and Rhaegel - were not born out of marriage between brother and sister. Instead, their father Daeron II and his sister Daenerys respectively wed Myriah and Maron Martell in order to unite Dorne with the Iron Throne.[2][3] Since his only sister Aelinor married Aerys, Maekar wed another woman of Dornish nobility, Dyanna of House Dayne. He was the father of Aerion, who ultimately killed himself drinking wildfire; Aemon, who would become a Maester at Castle Black and a member of the Night's Watch; and Aegon V Targaryen, who would succeed him to the Iron Throne.[4] Although he was the fourth son, it eventually fell on Maekar to assume the throne and further the Targaryen dynasty after the subsequent deaths (one of which was actually caused by Maekar himself) of his three elder brothers. Maeker killed his oldest brother Baelor in the Trial by seven of Duncan the Tall, which was ironically provoked by his eldest son Aerion.[5][6]

Season 1Edit

When revealing Jon Snow his true identity and origins, Maester Aemon mentions the name of his father.[7]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Maekar Targaryen is the fourteenth Targaryen to sit the Iron Throne. He was the fourth son of King Daeron II and Myriah Martell. As the son of Daeron II, he was also the grandson of King Aegon IV Targaryen. Maekar was given the Targaryen seat of Summerhall, and was a capable army commander who served in the Blackfyre Rebellion. After a number of unexpected deaths in the royal family, he came to the throne in 221AL. He ruled until 233AL, when he fell in battle against a rebel lord.

He was the father of Daeron, Aerion, Aemon, Aegon, Rhae and Daella.

Maekar appears as a major character in the Tales of Dunk and Egg prequel novellas, and would appear in any potential live-action adaptation.
