Aemon Targaryen, called the Dragonknight, was the second son of King Viserys II Targaryen and a prominent member of the Kingsguard.

History

Aemon joined the Kingsguard at the age of seventeen.[2] He served under four kings: Daeron the Young Dragon, Baelor the Blessed, his father Viserys II, and lastly his own brother, Aegon IV. He eventually was named Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, a position he held until he died defending his elder brother and king, Aegon IV, from two brothers of House Toyne who sought to assassinate the king in retribution for the execution of their brother, Ser Terrence Toyne.[3]

Prince Aemon has been referred to as the noblest knight who ever lived, and his skill with a sword is legendary throughout Westeros. He bore the Valyrian steel sword Dark Sister, previously wielded by Aegon the Conqueror's sister-wife Visenya.

Songs speak of his doomed love for his brother's queen, his own sister, Queen Naerys. He supposedly cried when Naerys married their brother.[4] It is rumored that Prince Aemon was the father of King Daeron II Targaryen. He defended the honor of his sister, Queen Naerys, against the slanders of the "evil" Ser Morgil.[5] He also won a tournament, disguised as a mystery knight, known only as the Knight of Tears, so he could name his sister, Naerys, the Queen of Love and Beauty in place of the king's mistress. He once fought Cregan Stark. Prince Aemon claimed he never faced a finer swordsman.
