Do Rhaenyra and Daemon tie the knot?

In the source material, Rhaenyra marries Corlys Velaryon’s son Laenor, with whom she shares three children. However, the book suggests that the children are not biologically related to Laenor; instead, the kids are from Rhaenyra’s adult love interest Ser Harwin Strong, the successor of Harrenhal, the largest castle of the Seven Kingdoms.

Laenor, in the books, was not interested in women, so his marriage with Rhaenyra was nothing more than a political arrangement. Meanwhile, Rhaenyra keeps on developing feelings for her uncle, Daemon.

So, after the death of Laenor, Rhaenyra and Daemon got married secretively in the Dragonstone. The duo also shared three children named Prince Aegon Targaryen, Prince Viserys Targaryen, and Princess Visenya Targaryen. However, as their marriage was against the wishes of King Viserys I Targaryen, big controversies took place in the family.

After getting frustrated with everything that’s happening, Rhaenyra gets an opportunity to escape from the castle and experience a normal life at least once.

The moment when Rhaenyra entirely gets involved, Daemon pulls himself back and runs away, leaving her alone.
