Rhaella Targaryen was the sister-wife of Aerys II Targaryen and the mother of Rhaegar Targaryen, Viserys III Targaryen, and Daenerys I Targaryen. She died during childbirth with Daenerys.

Marriage[]

She was not happy to marry her brother Aerys II Targaryen but did it due to the command of their family. They had a very bad marriage, and Aerys II Targaryen would only sleep with her after just having executed someone by burning, which aroused him perversely. He regularly abused her.

Death[]

Her son Rhaegar Targaryen died during the fall of House Targaryen, when she was pregnant. She later gave birth to Daenerys I Targaryen on Dragonstone. She died during childbirth, leaving behind only Viserys III Targaryen and Daenerys I Targaryen.
