Lord Aenar Targaryen, known as Aenar the Exile, was a nobleman of House Targaryen from the Valyrian Freehold. He was the father of Daenys "the Dreamer" and Gaemon "the Glorious".[1]

History

Twelve years before the Doom of Valyria (114 BC), Aenar's daughter, Daenys the Dreamer, foretold the destruction of Valyria. In response to this, Aenar sold his holdings in the Valyrian Freehold and the Lands of the Long Summer and moved with all his family, wealth, slaves, and dragons to Dragonstone, a bleak island citadel beneath the Dragonmont, a smoking mountain in the narrow sea. The Targaryens were far from the most powerful of the dragonlords, and their rivals in Valyria saw their flight as an act of cowardice. However, because Aenar had moved his family away from Valyria, the Targaryens were the only dragonlords to survive the Doom and the following Century of Blood.[1]

Aenar ruled as Lord of Dragonstone until his death, after which his son Gaemon inherited the rule.[1]

By the time of the War of the Five Kings, it is believed visions written down by Daenys, Aenar's daughter, before the Doom were in a book called Signs and Portents, that is now lost. Archmaester Marwyn claims he found three pages from it in his Book of Lost Books.[2]
