12th Level (Noble 6 / Commander 2 / Knight 4) - Deceased
Onetime heir to the Iron Throne and first son of King Aerys II Targaryen, Rhaegar was brother to Viserys and Daenerys Targaryen. Though married to Elia Martell and father to their two children, Rhaegar crowned Lyanna Stark the Queen of Love and Beauty after the tournament at Harrenhal. Later, she was spirited away by Rhaegar and died shortly thereafter. Robert Baratheon swore vengeance against Rhaegar for this, for Lyanna was to be his bride. Robert killed him not long thereafter in the waters of the Trident, fighting for the woman he loved. His wife Elia and his children, Rhaenys and Aegon, were brutally slain at the Sack of King’s Landing which followed Robert’s victory on the Trident.
In life Rhaegar was an excellent jouster, and wore glimmering black plate armour with a three-headed dragon set out in rubies upon the breastplate. Folks still comb the shallows of those waters, looking for stray rubies broken free from that armour by Robert’s warhammer.
