Princess Rhaenys Targaryen, also known as Rhaenys Velaryon, is a princess of the Targaryen dynasty and the wife of Lord Corlys Velaryon. She is a dragon rider, her mount is Meleys, the Red Queen.

Rhaenys Targaryen is the granddaughter of Jaehaerys I Targaryen and first cousin of Viserys I Targaryen and Daemon Targaryen. She is named after her great-great-grandmother: Rhaenys Targaryen, sister-wife of Aegon the Conqueror.

Rhaenys married Corlys Velaryon, admiral of the Targaryen fleets and currently the richest living man in Westeros, after becoming wealthy through trading expeditions and personally making his way to Essos further east. Rhaenys and Corlys have two children: their daughter Laena Velaryon and their son Laenor Velaryon.

Rhaenys' father, Aemon Targaryen, predeceased her grandfather, King Jaehaerys, and Jaehaerys made the decision to appoint his second son, Rhaenys' uncle Baelon Targaryen, as his heir. This proved controversial, as according to traditional inheritance law based on primogeniture, a lord's daughter should succeed before his younger brother. For this, Rhaenys is called "The Queen Who Never Was".

Baelon himself died a few years later, also during Jaehaerys' lifetime, leaving two rival male heirs to the Iron Throne: Rhaenys' own son Laenor or Rhaenys' first cousin Viserys. Fearing civil war, Jaehaerys resolved the issue by holding the Great Council of AD 101, at which all the lords of Westeros voted and elected Viserys heir to the throne. Jaehaerys died of old age a few years later and Viserys took the throne.

Rhaenys and her husband meet with King Viserys and propose a marriage alliance between the widowed monarch and her daughter Laena, uniting the greatest surviving houses of ancient Valyria. While Viserys is very hesitant about the idea of ​​marrying a child, he understands the importance of producing more heirs to secure his line.

Rhaenys later speaks with Rhaenyra - Visery's only surviving child and heir-designate to the Iron Throne - and teaches her a blunt lesson in politics: As much as the Lords of Westeros have sworn to uphold Rhaenyra's position as her father's heir, she knows from personal experience that that such vows are easily broken and that a woman on the throne is a far more contentious prospect than the young princess realizes.
