History

About 257 AC Kaeth was made Grand Maester at the age of eighty and sent to serve the court of King Aegon V Targaryen in King's Landing. He died within a year of his appointment and was succeeded by Grand Maester Ellendor.[2]

Grand Maester Kaeth wrote the well-regarded work Lives of Four Kings, a detailed history of the reigns of Daeron I, Baelor I, Aegon IV, and Daeron II. Kaeth scants Viserys II terribly, however, as his short reign as king came after Baelor's.[3]

The book is considered to be an excellent treatise of the art of rulership. Ser Kevan Lannister[3] and his nephew Tyrion Lannister[3] are amongst its appreciators, as is Prince Oberyn Martell.[3]

Quotes

Aenys was weak and Maegor was cruel, and Aegon II was grasping, but no king before or after would practice so much willful misrule.[4]

—Kaeth on King Aegon IV Targaryen
