Anna Targaryen is the secret great-granddaughter of Maegor I Targaryen and his niece/wife Rhaena Targaryen. Born to the secret Targaryen line hidden and protected by her great-grandmother, Anna grew up unaware of her royal heritage. She was raised in the town of Dragonstone alongside her younger brother Aric. When her parents died in a carriage accident, her elderly great-grandmother took her in and brought them both to the Princess of Dragonstone, Rhaenyra Targaryen. Rhaenyra took the two children in as her wards and raised them. Anna, at four-and-ten, was given a dragon egg which hatched into the dragon Stargleam and she bonded to it.
