Also recognised as Luke, Lucerys Velaryon is Rhaenyra’s next child and is primarily unremarkable in this episode. He does take place to bear a hanging resemblance to Ser Harwin Solid, his mother’s closest good friend and notably not her partner.

Joffrey Velaryon (a little one)

Born at the commence of episode 6, Joffrey is Rhaenyra’s youngest little one, for now, and only a child — and hence fairly unremarkable on his very own conditions. He is also likely a bastard fathered by Ser Harwin Powerful. Joffrey is named in honor of Laenor’s useless lover, who was overwhelmed to dying at their marriage by Rhaenyra’s previous lover, so there is a large amount likely on there.

Aegon is one particular of the little ones who was not new to this episode, as we had seen a very little of him prior to the time skip. He is the oldest son of Viserys Targaryen and Alicent Hightower. Any person who is aware even a minimal about Targaryen historical past appreciates Aegon is a daring identify to give a boy or girl. The title of the Westerosi dynasty’s initially king, Aegon usually carries with it a specified implication of acquired (or conquered) kingship. Regrettably, as opposed to the conqueror, the model of Aegon we see in this episode is mainly just a bizarre, spoiled brat.

As we see in this episode, Aemond does not have a dragon, a actuality that he spends considerably of his young lifetime incredibly self-mindful about.
