Everything you need to know about Alicent children

Alicent Hightower is a fictional character from George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series. She appears in the “A Dance with Dragons” and “The Princess and the Queen,” which are part of Martin’s wider world of Westeros.

Alicent Hightower was the daughter of Ser Otto Hightower, who served as Hand of the King to King Viserys I Targaryen. She married King Viserys I Targaryen and became his second wife. Together, they had several children:

King Aegon II Targaryen: Aegon II was the eldest son of Alicent and Viserys I. After his father’s death, he contested the throne against his half-sister, Rhaenyra Targaryen, in the infamous Targaryen civil war known as the “Dance of the Dragons.”

Queen Helaena Targaryen: Helaena was Alicent’s daughter and married to Aegon II. She suffered greatly during the civil war, and her tragic fate was a significant part of the conflict’s narrative.

Princess Jaehaera Targaryen: Jaehaera was another daughter of Alicent and Aegon II. She was married to her cousin, Aegon III Targaryen, to help end the civil war and unite the realm.

Princess Maelor Targaryen: Maelor was the youngest child of Alicent and Aegon II. He was just a baby during the civil war and tragically lost his life when he was caught in the crossfire of the fighting.

The civil war known as the “Dance of the Dragons” tore the Targaryen dynasty apart, leading to the eventual downfall of House Targaryen’s rule over the Seven Kingdoms. Alicent Hightower and her children played significant roles in the events that shaped the history of Westeros during this tumultuous time.
