Rhaegar is so taken with Ned Stark's sister who was also Robert Baratheon's betrothed that when he wins the tournament, he gives the victor's wreath to Lyanna instead of his wife.
Several months later, Rhaegar allegedly abducts Lyanna, but we've known from season six and beyond that she actually goes with him of her own free will — and they secretly get married, as we found out back in Game of Thrones ' season seven episode "Eastwatch" though at the time the Game of Thrones characters still all think Lyanna was the victim of kidnap and assault.
This controversy is what spurs Robert Baratheon's rebellion, backed by the great Houses Arryn, Greyjoy, Stark, and Tully.
The Lannisters even eventually join the rebellion after the Battle of the Trident, which is where Robert kills Rhaegar with his war hammer.
This defeat is the beginning of the end of the Targaryens, which is why the Lannisters finally join Robert's side — like true Lannisters, they wait to see which side emerges victorious before they make a choice.
After Rhaegar's death, the Lannisters sack King's Landing. Jaime kills the Mad King thus his nickname, Kingslayer , bannerman Ser Gregor Clegane aka The Mountain kills Elia Martell and Rhaegar's two children, and the rebellion is complete.
Tywin Lannister marries his daughter Cersei to Robert, and King Robert takes the throne. However, Rhaegar's line lives on.
While all of this is happening during the rebellion, Rhaegar sends his pregnant new wife, Lyanna, to the Tower of Joy under the watch of Kingsguard members Ser Arthur Dayne and Ser Gerold Hightower.
Eddard tracks his sister there and is present when she gives birth to Rhaegar's son and heir, Aegon Targaryen. Ned passes the baby boy off as his own bastard because Lyanna asks him to protect the baby from King Robert who would surely kill Rhaegar's heir if he knew the truth , and that's how Jon Snow comes to be part of the Stark family.
Now, in season eight, there are a select few people privy to this information. Bran is the first to find out, since he initially sees the vision of Rhaegar and Lyanna marrying, and then later Lyanna giving birth.
Then Samwell Tarly reads about the union in the journals at the Citadel, and musters the courage to tell Jon himself in the season eight premiere.
Jon, not having a lot of foresight, then decides to tell Rhaegar's little sister, his aunt, and also his boo, Daenerys Targaryen.
And now Arya, Sansa, Tyrion, AND Varys all know, too. Naturally Dany's none too pleased to discover that Jon is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne when he divulges this shocking information in the Winterfell crypts in season eight's second episode, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" and she's still not keen on it in the fourth episode, "The Last Stark.
Will she attempt to kill him in next week's episode , since she's headed for Mad Queen territory? Before Jenny dedicated her life in service to the Seven she was in love with a man.
Unfortunately, her lover fell victim to sickness and died. She had hoped to bear his children but after the death of her one true love, she became a Septa.
Nonetheless, the love she held for children led her to take care of the orphans. After the war of conquest, there were many orphans in Crownlands and King's Landing.
She was only happy to lend in help in any way she could. But her work was hard with meagre contributions from the lords and wealthy merchants.
Many times she had petitioned the newly crowned King Aegon for aid but her pleas went unheard. But all hope was not lost as one day Queen Rhaenys held court and Jenny was heard by the Queen.
Sympathetic to the plight of the poor the kind-hearted queen aided Jenny's efforts and the queen released funds and land for building an orphanage.
Everything was going smoothly until one day the kind queen fell in Dorne leaving her twin children motherless. With the death of Queen Rhaenys, her hopes of building an orphanage remained a dream.
The following years were of great turmoil as King Aegon and Queen Visenya unleashed flames of vengeance upon Dorne.
After long years of war, an uneasy peace was negotiated between Dorne and the rest of Westeros. With the realm in peace, Jenny had hoped the King and Queen would contribute to the orphanage but she was wrong.
King Aegon was focusing on building his own castle while Queen Visenya was not sympathetic to her cause. Months passed by and Jenny cursed the Dornishmen for taking the life of Queen Rhaenys.
The late queen had granted them a lot of lands in the Rhaenys' Hill but the funds for building the orphanage was not enough to complete its construction.
She had to depend on tents to house the many children under her care and many a night she and the children slept on empty stomachs.
For Jenny hunger was bearable but what she could not bear was the wails of the children under her care. It burned her soul to hear the cries of children.
Oftentimes she would pretend to work the fires to deceive the children that food was being prepared. She and her fellow Septas would beg for any help but oftentimes they were turned away by the wealthy and powerful.
Desperate she was prepared to sell her body to provide for the children under her care but then he came. It was a chance meeting with the young Prince Rhaegar that changed the fate of her and the children.
Jenny along with a few children were looking for some sympathetic patrons in the Street of Silk. The children were so thin with barely any colour left to their skin.
Most of them were too tired to even walk but she hoped someone would be kind enough to give them a loaf of bread.
Till noon they wandered until finally, they received a half-eaten apple from a rich lord of the Reach. Her heart broke when some of the children eyed the apple with hunger.
Seeing that she cried and cried but the gods remained silent to her plight. She fell to her knees with the begging bowl in her hand.
The half-eaten apple silently mocked her but what hurt her most were the cruel comments by the Reach lord and his retinue.
They mocked her and the children and there were many in the crowd to laugh along with the miscreants.
It was then that a small boy moved near her and placed a pouch full of gold dragons in her bowl. Her dazed eyes found a small child in a black hood but she knew those purple eyes.
The same kind eyes of Queen Rhaenys. The silver hair she could see under the hood was another proof that she was before royalty. That was how Jenny met the second son of King Aegon the Conqueror.
The children under her care called him the Silver Prince and so did the people of King's Landing. The thundering of hooves broke her out of her musings of the past.
She could see two horses in the distance and immediately knew who that was. The white horse alone let her know that it was Prince Rhaegar and the other figure was most likely the trusted companion of the young prince, Ser Baelium Brune.
It has been three years since her chance meeting with Prince Rhaegar in the Street of Silk. Ever since that day the Prince would send gold, food and clothes to the orphanage.
The young prince was barely ten when they met and yet showed so much kindness for a street urchin like her. The young prince would even visit the orphanage from time to time bringing many gifts and toys for the children.
She prayed regulatory to the Seven to watch over Prince Rhaegar for he was an adventurous sort. While Prince Rhaegar was known for his kindness his adventurous streak was something of a legend.
At the mere age of five, the young Prince managed to ride Balerion the Black Dread. To this day she and many others had no idea how the young prince accomplished that especially when he has his own dragon, Starfyre.
As punishment, King Aegon confined Prince Rhaegar to his rooms but the playful prince escaped the room to the ire of many. The Prince escaped the guards by hiding himself on the roof of Aegonfort and doused his father with a bucket full of water when he was holding court sitting upon the Iron Throne.
It was alleged that the Prince shouted he did it to douse the flames of temper from his father to the whole court.
At the same time, the King failed to douse the adventurism of Prince Rhaegar. Prince Rheagar was adventurous, funny, intelligent and kind yet strong.
Good qualities for a good king but sadly he was the second son. The firstborn was Aenys Targaryen who was frankly sick for most of his life.
It was only now the crown prince regained some health. The crown prince was the exact opposite of Prince Rhaegar.
Prince Aenys preferred to stay in the castle with his books for company. Although, it was owed to the bad health of Prince Aenys. The silver-white horse trotted to a pause and Jenny greeted Prince Rhaegar with a bow and a warm smile.
The prince maybe ten and three namesdays old but he was very handsome. According to rumours, many ladies of court fawned over the Silver Prince for his affections.
Many maidens and even married women have tried in vain to draw the attention of the Prince to no avail. The Prince was courteous but he never showed interest in any woman save Alyssa Velaryon who he was friendly.
How have you been Septa Jenny? I hope you will join us for breaking our fast. You as well Ser Brune. If I jumped I would have drowned and what good I would be to you if I am dead.
Although, I wonder why you threw some poor tanner into the stream? I had to save that man from drowning in the river. Jenny smiled as the children happily surrounded Prince Rhaegar asking for new stories to be told.
She had to admit the Prince was a treasure trove of funny and adventurous stories that captured the attention of a large audience.
Her favourite was the story of a race between a rabbit and a tortoise. There was a useful lesson to be learned from that story. The spirit of the story was hard work always triumphed inborn skill which she wholeheartedly agrees.
Sometimes she wondered where the Prince gets his boundless energy from. Prince Rhaegar had barely stepped inside the orphanage and already he was in his element.
He smiled despite the pain he felt at the touch of his twin. Together they had come to this world but he was thankful to the gods not to curse his twin with the same sickness that he suffered from.
Without his brother's steady influence he doubted he would have lived this far. Aenys was three names days old when his mother died.
When he learned of his mother's death he had fallen ill and it was his brother that nursed him back to health. His twin would stay day and night by his side.
Rhaegar would entertain him with tales of faraway lands. It was Rhaegar that sparked his interests in books and songs.
Today was no different as he enjoyed the tender care provided by his brother. Rhaegar would not allow servants to take care of him claiming that he deserved special attention.
He admitted to himself when his brother stayed by his side he would feel half his discomforts disappear. You are more important.
Westerosi politics can wait for a few days because my brother needs my expert services. Family is all that matters sweet brother of mine. He had noticed that whenever he brought up the matter of their younger brother Maegor, Rhaegar would immediately evade or outright change the subject.
Aenys knew his brother held some form of animosity against Maegor. Both of them had seen Maegor less than six times in thirteen long years and all those times he never found any problems with his younger brother.
Maegor tends to be a little snobby sometimes but outside that his younger brother was a likeable person. Even his betrothed Alyssa Velaryon dislike Maegor for some reason.
The door to his chambers opened and Alyssa walked in gracefully. Aenys smiled at his betrothed amicably while his brother gave him a wink.
His future marriage to Alyssa was supposed to be a secret but his brother's constant teasing had exposed that tidbit of information. His father was not amused at that stunt as he was still in the process of negotiating the matter.
With the rumours abound regarding his match with Alyssa father was forced to announce the betrothal far sooner than he was comfortable.
Later Aenys thanked Rhaegar as he was free from all the attention of many daughters of the lords. Looking back on it that was probably why his brother publicised his betrothal with Alyssa.
It seems I am unneeded if my betrothed enjoy your company more than mine. King Aegon has been asking for you. He closed his eyes and enjoyed the soft hands of his betrothed on his legs.
I should have known this would happen. You have corrupted my innocent brother with your strange wicked wiles. Shall I bring Septon Murmison to save my brother's soul from the clutches of dear Alyssa.
Aenys had never seen his brother move so fast. In a blink of his eyes, Rhaegar was out of his room leaving him alone with Alyssa.
He looked at her in surprise. The fact that he enjoyed Alyssa's work on both of his legs was a testament to the validity of that statement.
He ought to listen to more of his brother's advice, he thought silently. Dragonspectre02 Dec 24, Reader mode New Threadmarks. This is really good keep it up.

Threadmarks CH2: At the edge of the Mander New Threadmarks. It almost felt like whining. Rhaegar gave his sworn shield a withering look.
I think even the dragon had enough of your stunts my prince. You're the one that tattled me to my father.
I thought you to be a good man but it seems Alyssa was right. You cannot be trusted. I was hardly responsible if your father saw what you were doing.
I knew it. You Ser are not a true knight. A true knight would not have betrayed the trust of a prince. You angered the king with your stunts when he explicitly forbids your usual activities during this journey.
And I would like to remind you that I am sworn to serve the King. You cannot expect me to lie to the king. He immediately ducked his head as the Black Dread made a dive.
His horse became spooked and threw him down from its back. The Kingsguard knights and his own sworn shield were conveniently keeping a distance when that happened.
You have no sense of what is fun at all father. Then he turned on the Lord Commander. Mark my words.
The Kingsguard and his sworn shield were quick to keep up lest the Prince rides away far from the royal convoy. It took the royal procession three days to see the edge of Mander.
Seeing the Mander let Rhaegar know that they have crossed into the borders of the Reach. The lack of roads was a problem and it made the journey difficult.
He wanted to take Starfyre and go on his merry way but after his latest stunt on the dragon, his father had grounded him so to speak.
He rode ahead of the convoy towards the Mander with Ser Baelium as his company. Rhaegar dismounted his horse and led it towards the river.
The horse happily drank the water and he rubbed the white mane of his horse affectionately. We do have a lot of ground to cover before you can properly rest in a stable.
The reason for his horse's discomfort landed on the ground with a thud kicking up dirt. Rhaegar just laughed as he gave the reins of his horse to a servant.
He walked towards his dragon who blew a puff of smoke to his face. Just like him, his dragons loved to mess with others something he suspected Starfyre learned from him.
He could hear Ser Baelium's laughter as he was drenched from head to toe in water from the Mander. I have to say this is fun and I see why you enjoy playing pranks on others so much.
Rhaegar glared at Starfyre who preened and looked at him smugly. He could feel the waves of emotions from his draconic friend in the back of his mind.
Starfyre was hatched in his crib when he was a baby. In many ways they were brothers and he had learned that he shared an empathetic bond with Starfyre.5/8/ · Rhaegar Targaryen is arguably the most important Game of Thrones character, and until the season seven finale, we had never even seen jaybird-designs.com death marked the end of a long and complicated Home Country: US. 1/1/ · Best case here is a Triarchy of Aenys (Executive), Rhaegar (Legislative) and Meagor (Judiciary) ruling with their children eventually serving as Magistrates once they've broken up the Kingdoms and the Lords serving in an Assembly (basically a modified Volantis system) to stop an Alt Dance from destroying Targaryen power down the line. 3/15/ · Rhaegar Targaryen The Latest News.
