Aemon was Viserys II's youngest son and was born circa 138 AL. Aemon grew up to be a skilled swordsman, outshining his elder brother Aegon IV and gaining praise for his martial abilities. Aemon was said to be very much in love with his sister Naerys, and supposedly cried when he heard that his brother was to wed her. Aemon was named to the Kingsguard when he was only seventeen, where he would serve his cousin Daeron I in his conquest of Dorne. Unfortunately for Daeron and Aemon, after succeeding in conquering Dorne, it later fell back into Dornish hands in an uprising that would eventually claim Daeron's life. Aemon himself was taken prisoner, but eventually freed by his cousin Baelor the Blessed,who had become king after Daeron's death. Aemon continued to serve in the Kingsguard, under Baelor, Viserys II, and lastly Aemon's elder brother Aegon IV.
Lord Commander of the Kingsguard
Aemon was eventually named Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, a position he held until he died defending Aegon IV from two brothers of the House Toyne who sought to assassinate the king in retribution for his execution of their brother, Ser Terrence Toyne.
Aemon is widely remembered by the rest of Westeros as being the most noblest knight who ever lived. He once defended the honor of his sister Naerys from the slanders of the knight Ser Morgil. He also won a tournament, disguised as a mystery knight known only as the Knight of Tears. With his victory, he named his sister the Queen of Love and Beauty. Though Aemon's reputation was somewhat tarnished by the claims of his brother Aegon IV and nephew Daemon that he was actually the father of Daeron II, not Aegon, he is considered one of the greatest knights to ever live.
