Silver Denys claimed he was Maegor I’s son

Silver Denys is one of the most peculiar characters in Fire and Blood. He is a resident of Dragonstone who claims he has descended from King Maegor I Targaryen. To be precise, his exact claims are that he is the son of Maegor I’s bastard.

However, his claims are met with suspicion and even rebuke as Maegor famously did not produce any heir. Denys says he was a descendant of man-at-arms. The man-at-arms had apparently claimed he is Maegor’s natural son during the Great Council of 101 AC.

Denys silver hair makes people believe that he could be from Valyrian blood. However, his claims of being related to Maegor remain wobbly.

In Fire and Blood books Denys has his arm ripped off for attempting to steal the dragon – Sheepstealer.
