pre-asoiaf characters ♔ Rhaegar Targaryen (259-283 AL)
Prince Rhaegar Targaryen was a member of House Targaryen. He was the eldest son of King Aerys II Targaryen and, as heir-apparent, Prince of Dragonstone and crown prince for the Iron Throne. Prince Rhaegar was tall and handsome, having dark lilac eyes and the silver hair of the Targaryens, and was also considered to be a talented musician and skilled knight. He was deeply affected by the shadow of Summerhall, because he was born in grief and was considered melancholic at times. He died in Robert’s Rebellion which was triggered in part by his alleged abduction of Lyanna Stark.
