Aemon, born Aemon Targaryen, is the third son of King Maekar I Targaryen. He has served as a maester to the Nocna Straż at Czarny Zamek for so long that the rest of the Siedem Królestw has forgotten about his Targaryen blood. In the TV series he is played by Peter Vaughan.[1]

Character and Appearance

An ancient man of a hundred years old at the beginning of the novel, Aemon is bald, wrinkled, shrunken and blind.[2] He speaks softly but his counsel is so valued and respected that many fall silent to hear it. Despite his age his mind is still sharp as is his hearing. Aemon is a wise, humble and capable man. See also this collection of images.


Aemon Targaryen was the second of his name, and the third son of Maekar I. He was named after his great-great-uncle, Prince Aemon the SmokRycerz, by his grandfather, Daeron I Targaryen.[3] At this time, King Daeron I Targaryen had four grown sons, three with sons of their own, and so felt that having too many potential Targaryen heirs was dangerous and sent Aemon to the Cytadela.[4]

Aemon forged his chain, and earned the title of Maester Aemon. He served an unidentified lord until his father, now King Maekar I, summoned him to court to serve the Żelazny Tron. Not wanting to sit on the Mała Rada as he felt that would displace the Wielki Maester, Aemon chose instead to serve at the keep of his eldest brother, Prince Daeron. After Daeron's death, Maester Aemon's whereabouts are unknown until the death of King Maekar I, when Aemon was summoned to court in the year of the Wielka Rada. He was offered the crown but quietly refused ceding rule to his younger brother, Aegon V.

He then chose to go to the Mur to take the vows of the Nocna Straż for fear that he may be used in a plot to usurp his brother. On his journey King Aegon provided him with an "honor guard" (emptying the dungeons) to take the vows of the Night’s Watch with him. Among them was Bloodraven, who later went on to become Lord Commander of the Watch. Ser Duncan the Tall accompanied them aboard the ship, Golden Smok on the way to Wschodnia Strażnica.[5]

Rhaegar Targaryen sometimes corresponded with his ancient great-great uncle via raven messages. Aemon claims that every man who has ever joined the Watch has been tested on keeping his vows at least once. Aemon stated that he was tested three times and that the hardest time for him was hearing about the destruction of Ród Targaryenów during the War of the Usurper[3].

Recent Events

Gra o Tron

Peter Vaughan as Maester Aemon (TV series)

Maester Aemon is present at the feast when the Lord Commander Jeor Mormont welcomes Tyrion Lannister to Mur. Aemon recognises the intelligence of Tyrion and describes him as "a giant come among us," rendering Tyrion, a dwarf, uncharacteristically speechless.[2]

Aemon aids Jon Snow in helping his friend Samwell Tarly become a steward of the Nocna Straż, fearing for the boy's safety if he remains a recruit under the brutal training of Ser Alliser Thorne.[6][7] Aemon counsels Jon Snow when he learns Jon's family is in danger, for he knew Jon was having thoughts of deserting to come to his family's aid, just as Aemon had during Rebelia Roberta.[3]

Starcie Królów

Aemon, being too old to accompany the ranging, remains at Czarny Zamek . The duty of writing and sending messages falls to Samwell Tarly. Jeor Mormont reveals much of Aemon's history to Jon, including the fact that Aemon could have been king, but refused the crown. Mormont has a very high opinion of Aemon and his abilities, an opinion Jon shares.[8]

Nawałnica Mieczy

When Jon Snow returns to Czarny Zamek , badly wounded by an arrow, Maester Aemon treats his injury; despite being blind, his hands are steady and he treats the wound successfully.[9] Donal Noye and Aemon hear and believe Jon's report of Dzicy about to attack. When Donal Noye is killed defending the gates from Olbrzymy, Aemon tells Jon he must lead the men while Aemon provides guidance to him and the other men of Mur. Aemon also comes to Jon's defense when Janos Slynt and Ser Alliser Thorne want Jon executed for allegedly breaking his oaths and becoming a Dzicy.[10] During Stannis's occupation of Mur, Aemon is dubious of Melisandre's claim that Stannis is Azor Ahai reborn.[11]

Uczta dla Wron

The new Lord Commander Jon Snow sends Aemon to Stare Miasto with Samwell Tarly and the Dzicy girl Goździk, carrying Mance Rayder's infant "Dzicy prince", to remove all "royal blood" from Melisandre's grasp. Jon fears that Melisandre might kill Aemon for his "king's blood" to use in a spell. However, the sea voyage on the Blackbird is hard for the old man and Sam struggles to tell him what to do, leaving him out on the deck, in the rain for too long whilst he is lost in his reminiscences. He is bedridden and near death when arriving at Braavos.

Aemon, upon hearing of Daenerys Targaryen and her smoks, is convinced she is the Prince that was Promised, the Valyrian word translated "prince" being gender neutral. He curses his age, gutted that he is too old and feeble to seek her out to help with counsel and smok lore -- a fourth testing of his dual vows. During the voyage from Braavos to Stare Miasto he dies of a chill at the age of one hundred and two. According to Alleras, a novice at the Cytadela, he was the oldest living man in Westeros.

Taniec ze Smokami

Trying to sleep Jon Snow broods on Master Aemon’s final words to him:

"Allow me to give my lord one last piece of counsel,

” the old man had said, “the same council that I one gave my brother when we parted for the last time. He was three-and-thirty when the Wielka Rada chose him to mount the Żelazny Tron. A man grown with sons of his own, yet in some ways still a boy. Egg had an innocence to him, a sweetness we all loved. Kill the boy within you, I told him the day I took the ship for the Mur. It takes a man to rule. An Aegon, not an Egg. Kill boy and let the man be born.

The old man felt Jon’s face.

“You are half the age that Egg was, and your own burden is a crueler one, I fear. You will have little joy of your command, but I think you have the strength in you to do the things that must be done. Kill the boy, Jon Snow. Winter is almost upon us. Kill the boy and let the man be born.”

Jon remembers Aemon's words throughout his command.


He was a good man... No. He was a great man. A maester of the Cytadela, chained and sworn, and Sworn Brother of the Nocna Straż, ever faithful. When he was born they named him for a hero who had died too young, but though he lived a long long time, his own life was no less heroic. No man was wiser, or gentler, or kinder. At Mur, a dozen lords commander came and went during his years of service, but he was always there to counsel them. He counseled kings as well. He could have been a king himself, but when they offered him the crown he told them they should give it to his younger brother. How many men would do that? He was the blood of the smok, but now his fire has gone out. He was Aemon Targaryen. And now his watch is ended.
Aemon's eulogy by Samwell Tarly[12]

Quotes by Aemon

"I have been called many things, my lord, but kind is seldom one of them". [2]

- Aemon, in response to Tyrion Lannister thanking him for his kindness.

"Egg? Egg, I dreamed that I was old". [12]

- Aemon upon awaking from a dream

Maester Aemon: Jon, did you ever wonder why the men of the Nocna Straż take no wives and father no children?

Jon Snow: No.
Maester Aemon: So they will not love, for love is the bane of honor, the death of duty. [3]

"What is honor compared to a woman's love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms...or the memory of a brothers smile? Wind and words. Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy". [3]
