Aerys Targaryen Biographical Information VideoAerys II: The Mad King PART 1
Content with this fact, Aerys never made it his goal to learn the ways of leadership and instead took to the sword. From a young age, Aerys swung his stick around.
Fighting with his elder brothers, their friends and his friends, he sought to become to best swordsman in the realm.
He found in his training that the sword felt not like a piece of equipment, but an extension of his arm. Soon, he'd be practicing with real swords with real swordsmen.
After purchasing the best one he could find and hiring a tutor, he took to it quickly. Later that year he begins to compose his own songs for the harp.
Wildfire was his signature weapon, as he had his pyromancer place caches of wildfire in highly populated places in King's Landing during his final stand.
Aerys was ruthless in this, not caring whether the wildfire explosions killed his subjects or his enemies or even his allies.
Aerys was completely insane when it came to fire, shown by megalomaniacal belief that, after he intentionally perished in the impeding destruction of King's Landing, he would be resurrected as a mighty and powerful dragon to incinerate his enemies and rise anew.
He was so unstable that, even after being fatally stabbed in the back, he continuously screamed " Burn them all! Aerys may have been intelligent and charming to begin, but he lacked a considerable amount of common sense as a result of his madness: he demanded Jaime Lannister to kill his father Tywin, believing that Jaime would undoubtedly prioritize his loyalty to Aerys over his loyalty to his own family.
He also took the advice of sycophants incredibly easily, ignoring the sound advice of Lord Varys and others not to so much as let Tywin through the gates of the city, instead bowing to the cunning advice of Pycelle, who had turned into a supporter of House Lannister and wanted Tywin to sit on the Iron Throne, because Tywin had been able to keep the King's peace for 20 years.

In his youth, Aerys had an undeniable charm. He was generous, resolute and ambitious, and during the early part of his reign was an active and lively king.
Aerys liked music, dancing, masked balls, and young women. However, at the same time, Aerys was not the most intelligent or the most diligent person, and was somewhat quick to anger.
He was vain, proud, and changeable, which made him an easy target for lickspittles and flatteners. As his reign continued, Aerys's mood swings became more frequent and his behavior increasingly erratic.
He became more and more jealous, suspicious and violent as the years went on, prone to furious outbursts.
Aerys loved fair maidens and took multiple mistresses. Although most historians doubt the accuracy of it, some believe Arys had as many mistresses as Aegon the Unworthy.
Regardless, he would often quickly lose interest in these women. While a healthy son was born the following year, this only increased Aerys's obsessive behavior and fear for his child's life.
After the Defiance of Duskendale , these characteristics became more pronounced. He began to see every unexplained event or act of minor defiance as evidence of fearful conspiracies against him, and devised sadistic punishments for those he imagined to be his enemies.
He developed a fascination with fire , which eventually grew so consuming that he could only become sexually aroused by watching someone burn to death.
His marriage to his sister-wife Rhaella was never a happy one, and became sexually abusive late in his reign. Also following the Defiance of Duskendale, Aerys became more and more obsessed with dragonfire , and like his ancestors, Aerys too began to attempt to hatch dragon eggs.
When these attempts proved futile, he became obsessed with wildfire. Aerys was born to Prince Jaehaerys , the second son of King Aegon V , and his sister-wife, Princess Shaera.
While still a teenager, Aerys was married to his sister Rhaella , in accordance with the family tradition of dynastic incest. While Aerys's grandfather, King Aegon V Targaryen was against this incestuous marriage as he had been against incestuous marriages for his own children , Jaehaerys was allowed to arrange it.
Jaehaerys's motivation for the marriage was a prophecy made by a woods witch , which had been interpreted to mean that the prince that was promised would be born of the line of Aerys and Rhaella.
During his youth, Aerys befriended the young heir to Casterly Rock , Tywin Lannister , who served as a page at the royal court. Aerys also befriended the heir to Storm's End , his cousin Steffon Baratheon.
The three became inseparable. It would later be rumored that, on the night of Jaehaerys's coronation, Aerys took the maidenhead of Lady Joanna Lannister , who had come to court for the celebrations.
Aerys was a squire during the War of the Ninepenny Kings , and fought on the Stepstones. There, at the age of sixteen, he received his knighthood.
Aerys chose to be dubbed a knight by his friend, Tywin. Aerys replaced many of them with younger men, including his friend Ser Tywin Lannister , impressed by the ruthlessness the man had shown in dealing with a rebellion against House Lannister.
Aerys named Tywin his Hand of the King. Aerys declared upon his coronation that it was his wish to be the greatest king in the history of the Seven Kingdoms.
Some of his friends encouraged this by suggesting that one day he would be known as Aerys the Wise or Aerys the Great. During the early years of his reign, Aerys took an active part in his rule.
He was ambitious during these years, and boasted about many grand plans, although he lost interest in them quickly as well.
Regardless, the Seven Kingdoms prospered during these years, thanks to Aerys's Hand, Tywin Lannister. Shrewd enough not to make an enemy of the Iron Bank, Tywin settled the dispute with Braavos by paying back the loans owed to them by the Iron Throne with the gold of Casterly Rock.
He appeased the high lords by repealing all the laws, rights and protections that were granted to the smallfolk by King Aegon V Targaryen. He also won the support of the wealthy merchants by reducing tariffs on shipping to Oldtown , Lannisport and King's Landing, which in turn increased trade.
He sternly punished criminals, improved the infrastructure, and organized tournaments. Although Tywin remained little loved, he proved to be a brilliant administrator, and as Hand his reputation for brutal effectiveness became so well-known and so widely respected that popular rumor held it was Tywin, not Aerys, who truly ruled the realm, eventually causing Aerys to regret his choice of Hand.
The relationship between Aerys and Tywin was further complicated due to Tywin's wife, Joanna Lannister. It was rumored that she briefly "reigned as his paramour " when Aerys first came to the throne.
Whether or not this was true, the following year she married Tywin, with Aerys being present at the wedding. At the feast, a drunken Aerys joked that it was a great pity that the lord's right to the first night had been abolished and took certain liberties during the bedding ceremony.
It is said that Tywin did not forget Aerys's behavior during this night. Aerys's marriage to his younger sister, Rhaella , was less happy than Tywin's.
Aerys was known to keep many mistresses, and whilst Rhaella turned a blind eye to her husband's infidelities, she objected heavily against "turning my ladies into whores".
Whilst no official reason was given for Joanna's abrupt dismissal, she was not the first of Rhaella's ladies to be dismissed in this fashion, nor was she the last.
Rhaella's difficulties with childbirth played their part as well. He died the following year. He soon confined Rhaella to Maegor's Holdfast , and ordered that two septa 's would sleep in her bed from that moment forth, to ensure she would remain faithful.
Meanwhile, Aerys's relationship with his Hand was breaking down as well, the pair's friendship fraying. Where previously Aerys had heeded Tywin's counsel, he now often disagreed with his Hand and did the opposite of what Tywin suggested.
When Myr and Tyrosh became involved in a trade war against Volantis , Lord Tywin suggested that Westeros remained neutral.
King Aerys, in response, provided gold and arms to the Volantenes. When House Bracken and House Blackwood had a border dispute, Lord Tywin wanted to act in the favor of House Blackwood, leading to Aerys siding with House Bracken.
Over Tywin's objections, Aerys doubled the port fees for Oldtown and King's Landing and tripled them at Lannisport and other ports in Westeros. Trade suffered and a delegation of merchants arrived before the Iron Throne to protest.
Aerys lied to them and blamed the matter on his Hand of the King stating. Aerys objected to many of Tywin's appointments and filled the offices with men of his own choosing.
When Tywin suggested his own brother, Ser Tygett Lannister , as master-at-arms for the Red Keep , Aerys appointed Ser Willem Darry instead.
By now, Aerys had become aware of the tales being told in his kingdoms; that it was Lord Tywin who truly ruled the Seven Kingdoms and that Aerys was but a hollow figurehead.
These statements greatly angered the king. When Lord Tywin's captain of the guard, Ser Ilyn Payne , had been overheard to repeat this statement, Aerys had the man's tongue torn out with hot pincers.
Lady Joanna Lannister returned to the court for this event, bringing with her six-year-old twins, Cersei and Jaime.
Drunkenly, Aerys asked Joanna if nursing her children had ruined her breasts. Whilst the question was a great amusement for Lord Tywin's rivals, it humiliated Lady Joanna.
Lord Tywin attempted to resign the next morning, but Aerys refused to accept. And thus, Tywin Lannister remained Hand of the King. Courtiers at the court who wished to win the king's favor and gain advancement soon learned the best way to gain the king's eye was to mock and make japes about Lord Tywin.
King Aerys continued to undermine and slight his Hand, which amused many lords who were rivals of Lord Tywin or who simply disliked the humorless man.
Tywin Lannister suffered all these slights in silence, never showing any public display of weakness. These reports would reach Casterly Rock , where Lord Tywin was in mourning.
