Aegon Blackfyre was the eldest son of Daemon Blackfyre and the twin of Aemon Blackfyre. Aegon was Daemon's heir.[4]


Aegon was the oldest of the children of Daemon I Blackfyre. He had a twin brother, Aemon, and five younger brothers, Daemon, Haegon, Aenys, and two whose names are currently unknown. He also had at least two sisters.[5]

The twins liked to bully their younger brother Daemon and Daemon's friend, Alyn Cockshaw. Daemon once had a prophetic dream about the deaths of Aegon and Aemon, but the disbelieving twins only laughed at their brother.[5]

During the First Blackfyre Rebellion, Aegon was killed at the Battle of the Redgrass Field by the arrows of Brynden Rivers and his Raven's Teeth.[3] Daemon remained by his fallen son's side and was also struck down by arrows. Aegon's twin, Aemon, took up the sword Blackfyre from his father, but was then slain by the archers as well.[4]

Quotes about Aegon

The Raven's Teeth had gained the top of Weeping Ridge, and Bloodraven saw his half brother's royal standard three hundred yards away, and Daemon and his sons beneath it. He slew Aegon first, the elder of the twins, for he knew that Daemon would never leave the boy whilst warmth lingered in his body, though white shafts fell like rain.[4]

Aegon and Aemon. Wretched witless bullies, just like you. When we were little, they took pleasure in tormenting me and Daemon both.[5]

I dreamed it. This pale white castle, you, a dragon bursting from an egg, I dreamed it all, just as I once dreamed of my brothers lying dead. They were twelve and I was only seven, so they laughed at me, and died. I am two-and-twenty now, and I trust my dreams.[5]
