Prince Aemon Targaryen is the cousin and second husband of Rhaenyra I Targaryen. The two--alongside Rhaenyra's first husband and Aemon's lover, Laenor Velaryon--married for love. Because of their polygamy, it is unknown which man is the father of the younger six children. Despite this, Aemon deeply loves all of the children, including Rhaenyra and Laenor's firstborn Jacaerys. He is a dragonrider who rides the dragon Terrax.
