Prince Gaemon Targaryen was the eleventh child of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen and Queen Alysanne Targaryen.[2]

Appearance

When he was born, Gaemon was a scrawny thing, almost half the size his brother Vaegon had been at birth.[1]

History

Gaemon was born to King Jaehaerys I Targaryen and Queen Alysanne Targaryen in 73 AC at the Red Keep in King's Landing. He was named in honor of Gaemon the Glorious, the greatest of the Lords of Dragonstone before the Conquest. Gaemon was born early, following a long and difficult labor. Gaemon died a few days into 74 AC, less than three months old.[1]
