Talk: Rhaenyra Targaryen
Claimant or Holder?
The PatQ confirms that Rhaenyrs did hold the Iron Throne for brief period of time. It is only by Aegon II's decree that she should not be called Queen. I propose we change her status from claimant to holder. Any thoughts? LordStoneheart 17:34, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Coat of Arms anyone?
Rhaenyra's personal arms are described in detail, and if there is any character who needs there own made it is her. I'd like to help but I don't have access to decent image editing software, could anyone do this?
I did cobble together a square-shaped banner: http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/File:Rhaenyra_crest.png
But I don't know how to make it shield-shaped.--The Dragon Demands 16:56, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Should it be pointed out in the Legacy-section that the experiences with Rhaenyra enforced the beliefs that women shouldn't rule, in a already patriarchialic society? --Exodianecross (talk) 21:42, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
Not just a claimant
Fire & Blood consistently refers to Rhaenyra as "Queen Rhaenyra", "the queen", etc. Moreover, both she and Aegon were crowned and sat on the Iron Throne. And the Blacks ultimately won the war, with Rhaenyra's descendants, not Aegon's, inheriting the throne. So instead of calling Rhaenyra a claimant we should consider both Rhaenyra and Aegon as contemporary disputed monarchs. --Potsk (talk) 10:08, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
- The line of succession at the end of Fire & Blood does not regard her as a monarch, her "half-year reign" is not considered official. Plus she is never called "Rhaenyra I" or "Rhaenyra First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men" in the text, only her supporters called her a queen. --Thomaerys Velaryon (talk) 12:48, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
- Part of the peace agreement was, to placate the surviving Greens, the Blacks agreed to not refer to Rhaenyra as an official monarch.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 20:09, 6 March 2021 (UTC)
