|Pretenders' claims proven false
During the Dance of the Dragons, Prince Daeron the Daring fought for the greens and supported his older brother King Aegon II Targaryen. He died at the Second Battle of Tumbleton in 130 AC. However, the manner of his death is disputed among the sources — he may have been killed by Black Trombo's morningstar, or killed by a man-at-arms with a sword, or burned to death after his tent caught fire.
The different versions of Daeron's death, as well as the fact his body was never identified, left room for ambitious people to impersonate him in the following years. These pretenders were one of the incidents that created turmoil in the Seven Kingdoms after the Dance. In the end, King Aegon III Targaryen and his brother, Prince Viserys Targaryen, worked together to ably deal with the issue, and the claimants were conclusively shown to be imposters.
