Myriah Martell, by riotarttherite ©
|Alias||Myriah of Dorne|
|Born||In 146–158 AC, Dorne|
|Died||In 184 AC or after|
|Spouse||King Daeron II Targaryen|
Princess Myriah Nymeros Martell was the wife and queen consort of King Daeron II Targaryen.
Myriah had the typical dark hair and eyes of House Martell. Those traits were passed on to her eldest son, Prince Baelor Targaryen.
Myriah was the eldest daughter of the Prince of Dorne during the reign of King Daeron I Targaryen. She had a younger brother, Prince Maron Martell.
In 161 AC, after Daeron was killed during his attempted conquest of Dorne, King Baelor I Targaryen freed Dornish hostages in King's Landing and returned them to Dorne personally, walking barefoot. Once he reached Sunspear, Baelor spoke with the Prince of Dorne, and agreed upon a peace, which included the betrothal of Myriah to Baelor's cousin, Prince Daeron Targaryen. The two would marry once they were both of age.
Myriah eventually married Daeron, and they would have four sons together: Baelor (born 170 AC), Aerys (born 172–176 AC), Rhaegel (born 173–177 AC), and Maekar (born 174–178 AC).
In 184 AC, after the death of King Aegon IV Targaryen, Daeron succeeded him as King Daeron II Targaryen, and Myriah became queen.
Behind the Scenes
In A Song of Ice and Fire, the character was originally named Myriah Martell. However, when writing The World of Ice & Fire, George R. R. Martin changed her name to "Mariah". But when writing Fire & Blood, George changed back to the original spelling, "Myriah". The latest version of The World of Ice & Fire has been edited to change her name to "Myriah".
