Prince Aemon Targaryen was a member of House Targaryen. He was the eldest son of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen and Queen Alysanne Targaryen. Aemon was married to Lady Jocelyn Baratheon during his father's reign. Together, they had a daughter, Princess Rhaenys Targaryen. Rhaenys would later be known as "The Queen Who Never Was".
Aemon had been his father's eldest son, and thus heir, until his death in 92 AC. Aemon's death caused Jaehaerys I to choose a new heir. The two Targaryens he had to choose between were Aemon's daughter, Princess Rhaenys, and Aemon's brother, Baelon. Baelon was eventually chosen.
Aemon and his wife had one daughter, Rhaenys Targaryen. Rhaenys was married to Lord Corlys Velaryon. This marriage led to two grandchildren for Aemon: Laena and Laenor Velaryon. Laena would later have two daughters, Rhaena and Baela, while Laenor would have three sons, Jacaerys, Lucerys and Joffrey. Though no one questioned the paternity of Laena's children, there were rumours that Laenor's children were not actually Laenors, but that the three boys had been fathered on Laenor's wife Rhaenyra Targaryen by Ser Harwin Strong. These rumours were never proven.
