Maegor Targaryen (son of Aerion)
From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
|Born||In 232 AC|
Prince Maegor Targaryen was the son of Prince Aerion and Princess Daenora Targaryen.
Born in 232 AC, Maegor was given his name by his sire who died the same year he was born. According to a semi-canon source, this name was a provocation, since King Maegor I Targaryen had a poor reputation. Prince Aerion died later that year from drinking wildfire.
After the death of his grandfather, King Maekar I Targaryen, Maegor was one of the claimants in the Great Council of 233 AC. Only a few spoke for him, and his claim was turned down because he was an infant and there were fears Maegor would inherit his father's madness. His uncle Aegon V Targaryen was instead chosen king.
