Alysanne and Silverwing at a heart tree, in the North of Westeros

Queen Alysanne Targaryen, riding her dragon Silverwing, visited the Night’s Watch and the Wall;
at the time when she traveled the North of Westeros, as narrated in the Targaryen history book, Fire & Blood, by George RR Martin

Fire and Blood

[…] the queen herself noted that Silverwing “does not like this Wall”.

Though it was summer and the Wall was weeping, the chill of the ice could still be felt whenever the wind blew,
and every gust would make the dragon hiss and snap.

“Thrice I flew Silverwing high above Castle Black, and thrice I tried to take her north beyond the Wall,”

Alysanne wrote to Jaehaerys,

“but every time she veered back south again and refused to go.
Never before has she refused to take me where I wished to go.

I laughed about it when I came down again, so the black brothers would not realize anything was amiss,
but it troubled me then and it troubles me still.”
