Jaehaerys Targaryen was the fourth child of Aerys II Targaryen and Rhaella Targaryen.


Jaehaerys' birth seemed to cease the madness that his father, Aerys, was slowly descending into, as his father seemed as joyful as he was in his youth. However, when Jaehaerys died later in that year, Aerys fell back into his despair, going as far as to blame and punish Jaehaerys' wetnurse by beheading her. He later decided that the young mistress of one of his knights had actually poisoned his son, torturing and starving her and her family until they confessed, for which the confessions differed greatly between them. Afterwards, he fasted for a fortnight, made a walk of repentance, and prayed with the High Septon, before announcing that he would remain loyal to his wife.
