Daenerys Targaryen (Daughter of Aegon IV)
Princess Daenerys was born in 172 AC, some nineteen years after the birth of her brother, the future King Daeron II Targaryen, who had been born in 153 AC, the year their parents had been wed. Daenerys had a twin brother, who was stillborn. Her mother, Queen Naerys, lingered near death due to the difficult birth, but eventually recovered. At the time of her birth, Daenerys's brother Daeron was already married and had a son of his own.
Daenerys's betrothal to the Prince of Dorne, Prince Maron Martell, was brokered by her brother Daeron as part of the treaty bringing Dorne into the realm of the Iron Throne, after negotiations lasting two years. It was said that Daenerys loved Daemon Blackfyre, and that the main reason Daemon rose in rebellion against Daeron was that Daenerys was denied to him. Yet, it must be said that Daemon did not rebel until eight years after the wedding, and that Princess Daenerys is not recorded to have ever mourned her half-brother. By the time Daemon rebelled, he had been married to Rohanne of Tyrosh for years and had at least nine with her, and Daenerys had already given Maron multiple heirs.
Daenerys's wedding to Prince Maron was held in King's Landing in 187 AC.
Prince Maron Martell built his new bride the Water Gardens, a place of beauty made of colored marble with pools and trees, to free her from the heat and dust of Sunspear.
