Aegon, Rhaenys & Visenya - by Douglas Wheatley - Illustration for "Fire & Blood"
"Aegon was tall, broad shouldered and powerful in appearance, with purple eyes and short-cut silver-gold hair. He was very charismatic and commanding. During the Conquest he typically wore a shirt of black scales into battle and wielded his Valyrian steel sword Blackfyre.
Aegon was seen as an enigma. He was a solitary person whose only friend was Orys Baratheon. He was a great warrior who wielded a sword called Blackfyre but only rode his dragon for battle or travel and never entered tourneys.
Rhaenys was a year or two younger than Aegon. She had the silver-gold Targaryen hair which she kept long and wore loose. Physically she was more slender and graceful than her sister. She was known as less stern and more playful and curious than her older sister, Visenya. She was also interested in music and poetry.
Rhaenys loved to ride her dragon, Meraxes, and spent twice as much time riding than her siblings. She surrounded herself with comely young men and there were whispers that she entertained men while Aegon was with Visenya - yet Aegon spent ten nights with Rhaenys for every one with Visenya.
Aegon the Conqueror's eldest sister was a passionate, temperamental woman. Visenya was both stern and sensual, more voluptuous than her sister Rhaenys, more passionate, but with a dark and unforgiving side. Even those who loved her best found her stern, serious and unforgiving. Visenya was described as having a "harsh beauty" and was reputed to have dabbled in sorcery. While Rhaenys was the flirt, Visenya was the seductress. Although they shared their brother Aegon between them, they competed for him each in their own way. It is said that Aegon spent ten nights with Rhaenys for every one with Visenya."
