The princess objected to the marriage but agreed when King Viserys threatened to appoint her half-brother Aegon as his heir.

Rhaenyra and Laenor had three sons: Princes Jacaeyrs, Lucerys, and Joffrey Velaryon. When Rhaenyra's father died, the young princes were near adulthood and had their dragons. It was rumored that those three sons of Rhaenyra were fathered by her lover, Ser Harwin Strong.

Rhaenyra Targaryen, daughter of King Viserys, was first married to Laneor Valaryon and had three sons with him. During the marriage, Sir Laneor fathered three sons, Jacaerys, Lucerys, and Joffery. Rhaneyra later married her uncle, Pince Daemon Targayerean, and had three kids with him.

Before his marriage to the princess Rhaenyra, Laneor had never been with a woman before and was always acquainted with men. This probably led to the rumors that Rhaenyra and Harwin were lovers.
