Viserys Plumm, by Riotarttherite ©
|Born||In 176 AC or 177 AC|
|Died||In or after 212 AC|
|Mother||Princess Elaena Targaryen|
Viserys's father, Lord Ossifer Plumm, was a wealthy but aged man when he wed Princess Elaena Targaryen in 176 AC. He is said to have died during the bedding, after seeing his wife naked for the first time. Nevertheless, Elaena did conceive, and Viserys was eventually born. However, rumors later suggested that Lord Ossifer had died before he was able to consummate the marriage, and that Viserys instead had been fathered by King Aegon IV Targaryen. The claim that Ossifer fathered a child after his death led to the saying that he had had "a cock six feet long".
A Feast for Crows
When Ser Jaime Lannister tells Queen Cersei Lannister that there is no worry that her son King Tommen I Baratheon could consummate his marriage with Margaery Tyrell, as Tommen is "much too young", Cersei replies that Ossifer Plumm "was much too dead", but that didn't stop him from fathering a child. She intends to explain that any child of Margaery's could be recognized as being fathered by Tommen, even if it was physically impossible for him to impregnate her.
A Dance with Dragons
Tyrion Lannister encounters Brown Ben Plumm, commander of the Second Sons, and speculates that he is descended from a younger son of Viserys Plumm. He guesses that Daenerys Targaryen's dragons were fond of Ben, which amuses Ben as it is true, and that he knows why. When Ben says his mother said his father had "a drop of dragon blood", Tyrion replies, "Two drops. That, or a cock six foot long", suggesting that Tyrion believes the rumors about Ossifer's posthumous child being fathered by Aegon IV Targaryen.
