HOUSE TARGARYEN | Rhaena and Baela Targaryen; aka the Twins of Pentos
Rhaena Targaryen, daughter of Prince Daemon Targaryen and Lady Laena Velaryon. Rhaena and Baela each had a dragon egg. Rhaena’s hatchling was unhealthy and died within hours of emerging from the egg. An egg from another clutch, laid by Syrax, was given to Rhaena, and it was said that she slept with it every night and prayed for a dragon to match her sister’s. During the Dance of the Dragons, Rhaena was chosen to accompany Prince Joffrey Velaryon to Gulltown for their protection, although they were told it was to defend the Vale of Arryn against King Aegon II Targaryen’s dragons. Rhaena brought three dragon eggs with her to the Vale and eventually she bonded with the dragon Morning, towards the end of the Dance.
Baela Targaryen, twin sister to Rhaena Targaryen. During the Dance of the Dragons, as Dragonstone fell to King Aegon II Targaryen, Baela was able to escape from her bedchambers as the door was being smashed down. She managed to reach Moondancer and as Aegon II flew Sunfyre and made his descent, Baela rose up on Moondancer to meet him. The dragons fought, eventually slamming into the ground still fighting. Aegon jumped from the saddle twenty feet from the ground but Lady Baela stayed with Moondancer all the way down. Burned and battered she still found the strength to undo her saddle chains and crawl away from her dragon as Moondancer coiled into her death throes. Ser Alfred Broome drew his sword to slay Baela, but Ser Marston Waters wrenched the blade from his hand. Tom Tangletongue carried her to Maester Hunnimore.
