Daemon Velaryon was a Lord of the Tides and head of House Velaryon. He served as the master of ships to Aegon the Conqueror during Aegon's Conquest.[1]

History

Lord Daemon was counted as one of the oldest supporters of Aegon I Targaryen when he was crowned after Aegon's Landing. Daemon was therefore given the honor of becoming Aegon's master of ships, in control of the new royal fleet.

After House Arryn refused to bend the knee, Aegon sent his admiral to take the coastal city of Gulltown, but the fleet of the Vale of Arryn managed to repel the Targaryen fleet. Daemon perished during the battle in the waters off Gulltown.[1]
