Here’s What We Know About King Viserys’ Wife, Queen Aemma

Viserys I From 103 to 129 AC, Targaryen was the fifth Targaryen king to sit on the Iron Throne. Viserys became king when his grandfather, Jaehaerys I, died. He took over a peaceful and wealthy kingdom that had been run by his grandfather. Even though he didn’t mean to, he set the stage for a civil war, his rule was mostly peaceful.

Viserys Targaryen rode Balerion until Jaehaerys I’s reign, when the dragon died of old age. After Balerion died, Viserys never got close to another dragon. Viserys is played by Paddy Considine in the TV version of House of the Dragon. Who is Queen Aemma, the King’s wife?

All About Queen Aemma, King Viserys’s Wife

Viserys was engaged to his cousin Lady Aemma of House Arryn, who was 11 years old and the daughter of Princess Daella. Alysanne was Daella’s mother, and Jaehaerys I’s daughter Aemma married her own cousin Viserys because the Targaryens believed in the purity of blood. After two years of marriage, Viserys and Aemma tried to have a son, but she had several miscarriages because maesters thought she was bedded too soon.

In the year 97 AC, she lost a baby in the cradle but gave birth to Rhaenyra Targaryen, a healthy girl who was called “the Realm’s Delight.” But Viserys wanted a son to take over after him, so he kept torturing Aemma until she died. In the 105th year of Aegon’s rule, Aemma got pregnant again. This time, she was in a lot of pain. She prayed that this would be her last pregnancy, but maybe the gods didn’t hear her.

Aemma was taken to Maegot’s Holdfast, where she died while giving birth to a son who only lived for a day in the book. Viserys gave his son the name Baelon, which was his father’s name. The baby boy was stillborn, which was sad. It’s possible that Aemma’s bad health made it hard for her to give birth, but Viserys didn’t listen to her cries and made her have a son anyway.

The best parts of King Viserys’s early life

Viserys I is King Jaehaerys I Targaryen’s grandson. Aegon the Conqueror was Jaehaerys I’s grandfather. Rhaenys was Jaehaerys’s first son’s only child, and Viserys was Jaehaerys’s second son’s oldest son. However, the Targaryen dynasty was still young and did not have clear rules about who would rule after them. Also, if Rhaenys was passed over because she was a woman.

“House of the Dragon” is about King Viserys.

King Viserys I Targaryen is played by Paddy Considine. He is the fifth king of the Seven Kingdoms. Viserys was chosen by a council of lords to be king after his grandfather, Jaehaerys I Targaryen, died. He was known as “a warm, kind, and decent man.”

The Iron Throne was a powerful image in Game of Thrones. But House of the Dragon takes the seat of the sword to a whole new level. House of the Dragon takes place almost entirely in King’s Landing, while Thrones was a long book that told the stories of several important families in Westeros. One clan that seems to be getting more attention from HBO with each season is the Targaryens.

When the show starts, it’s not clear who will take over for King Viserys Targaryen (Paddy Considine). Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy), his only child, is a girl, and Viserys’s council doesn’t think that Viserys’s scheming brother Daemon (Matt Smith) is fit to rule. Even though Viserys’s wife is carrying a baby boy who could be an heir, both the baby and the mother die at the end of the first episode when the baby is born.

The end of King Viserys

On the third day of the third moon in the year 129 AC, Viserys died. Rhaenyra didn’t agree with her younger half brother Aegon’s claim to be queen, so the blacks backed her instead. In the middle of the war, Ser Perkin the Flea said that his squire, Trystane, was the dead Viserys’s illegitimate son.
