Jacaerys was fifteen-years-old at the start of the civil war which became known as the Dance of the Dragons. He rode his dragon, Vermax, to the Eyrie, Sisterton, White Harbor, and Winterfell to raise support for his mother's claim. After successfully gaining the Vale of Arryn for the blacks, he also gained the North through the Pact of Ice and Fire.

Jacaerys took part in the Battle of the Gullet where Vermax flew too low and crashed into the sea. It was said that Jacaerys leapt free and clung to a piece of smoking wreckage for a few heartbeats until some crossbowmen on the nearest ship began loosing quarrels at him. The prince was struck once, and then again. Finally, one quarrel took him in the neck and he was swallowed by the sea.
