Therein ended the line of dragons. King Aerys II was dethroned by Robert Baratheon’s rebellion. Crown Prince Rhaegar was slain by Robert Baratheon on the Trident, and Aerys was murdered by a member of his own Kingsguard, Ser Jaime Lannister, during the Sack of King’s Landing. Princess Elia Martell, wife of Prince Rhaegar, was also murdered during the Sack of King’s Landing, along with her young daughter, Princess Rhaenys, and her infant son, Prince Aegon. Queen Rhaella Targaryen fled to Dragonstone, with her son, Prince Viserys. There, she gave birth to Daenerys, but died in childbirth.
