Princess Myriah Nymeros Martell was the wife and queen consort of King Daeron II Targaryen.

History

Myriah was the eldest daughter of the Prince of Dorne during the reign of King Daeron I Targaryen.[2] She had a younger brother, Prince Maron Martell.[1]

In 161 AC, after King Daeron I was killed in Dorne, King Baelor I Targaryen freed the Dornish hostages in King's Landing and returned them to Dorne personally, walking barefoot. Once he reached Sunspear, he spoke with the Prince of Dorne, and agreed upon a peace, which included the betrothal of Myriah to Baelor's cousin, Prince Daeron Targaryen. The two would marry once they were both of age.[2]

Myriah eventually married Daeron, and they would have four sons together: Baelor (born 170 AC), Aerys (born 172176 AC), Rhaegel (born 173177 AC), and Maekar (born 174178 AC).[4] Baelor took after his mother in appearance, with dark hair and eyes.[5][6]

In 184 AC, after the death of King Aegon IV Targaryen, Daeron succeeded him as King Daeron II Targaryen and Myriah became queen.[1]

Behind the Scenes

In A Song of Ice and Fire, the character was originally named Myriah Martell.[8][9] However, when writing The World of Ice & Fire, George R. R. Martin changed her name to "Mariah".[2][4] But when writing Fire & Blood, George changed back to the original spelling, "Myriah".[10] The latest version of The World of Ice & Fire has been edited to change her name to "Myriah".[11]
