Prince Daeron Targaryen is the youngest child of Viserys I Targaryen and his second wife, Alicent Hightower. Daeron was born into a divided family as his mother and brothers worked to try and steal his sister Rhaenyra's birthright as heir to the Iron Throne. For his early childhood, he was supportive of their endeavors. However, in an effort to foster relations among his children, King Viserys had Daeron fostered on Dragonstone alongside Rhaenyra and her family. This plan worked and Daeron alone of his siblings supported Rhaenyra's claim to the throne. He is a dragonrider of the dragon Tessarion.
