Laena Velaryon (daughter of Alyn)
|Born||In 134 AC, Crownlands[N 1]|
|Father||Lord Alyn Velaryon|
|Mother||Lady Baela Targaryen|
Laena Velaryon was a noblewoman of House Velaryon, the daughter of Lord Alyn Velaryon and his wife, Lady Baela Targaryen, and the half-niece of King Aegon III Targaryen. She was named after her paternal great-aunt and maternal grandmother, Lady Laena Velaryon.
Laena was born while her father, Lord Alyn Velaryon, was on his voyage to the Iron Islands and then Lys. Alyn first met his daughter when he returned to King's Landing with the previously-missing Prince Viserys Targaryen. Laena and her parents departed soon after to return to Driftmark.
Laena had been presented a dragon egg upon her birth. At Driftmark in 135 AC, it hatched a blind and wingless wyrm, white as a maggot. After the monster tore a bloody chunk from young Laena's arm, Alyn Oakenfist hacked it to pieces.
- Fire & Blood does not specify the place of birth for Laena, but her mother, Baela Targaryen, is known to have spent her time between Dragonstone, Driftmark, and King's Landing at the time of Laena's birth. It should also be mentioned that Laena first met her father in King's Landing at a few months old. Unless Baela brought her daughter to court soon after childbirth, King's Landing seems the more likely place of birth for Laena.
