Gaemon was the son of Lord Aenar Targaryen and had at least one sister, Daenys Targaryen. Gaemon was married to Daenys and together they had several children, Aegon, Elaena, and at least one younger daughter. Aegon and Elaena eventually inherited the rule of Dragonstone from Gaemon.
Gaemon was called "Gaemon the Glorious", and he is remembered as the greatest Targaryen Lord of Dragonstone during the Century of Blood. This may be because later rulers had fewer dragons: the Targaryens came to the island with five dragons, but four of them died off one by one over time, though two more later hatched. Thus Gaemon had five dragons, compared to the only three dragons of Aegon the Conqueror.
