Born in the year 145, Daena Targaryen, nicknamed Daena the Rebel, was the eldest daughter of King Aegon III Targaryen and his second wife, Queen Daenaera Velaryon.
She was married to her brother, Baelor Targaryen, who had the marriage dissolved once he became king. She had a son out of wedlock, Daemon Feunoyr. Stubbornly, she refused to give the name of the father.
With silver-gold hair and violet eyes, Daena was a true Targaryen, beautiful, wild and stubborn. Lively and energetic, she excelled at running, hunting, archery, horseback riding (she liked to say she was made to ride a dragon, but those were gone) and even jousting (though she never participated in a tournament). She adored her father, from whom she inherited her golden three-headed dragon pendant, and idolized her brother Daeron, the Young Dragon.
She was highly regarded for her beauty and courage.
