"His name was Aemon Targaryen. He came to us from King's Landing. A Maester of the Citadel, chained and sworn, and sworn Brother of the Night's Watch, ever faithful. No man was wiser, or gentler or kinder. At the Wall, a dozen Lord Commanders came and went during his years of service, but he was always there to counsel them. He was the blood of the Dragon... but now his fire has gone out. And now his Watch is ended." ―Samwell Tarly
and now his watch is ended
Died of natural causes, in our world and in Westeros, the man was truly blessed.
'Egg, I dreamed that I was old.'
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 brother's 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.
He was the blood of the dragon. But his fire has gone out
I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure he was the only character shown in GoT who died of natural causes. Hoster Tully was mentioned but not shown. He did an excellent job playing Maester Aemon, I am saddened to hear of his passing.
Okay the GOT references are really cute and all but his name was peter Vaughan and he came to us from Shropshire and he was, like, a real person who actually died.
"I am a maester of the Citadel, bound in service to Castle Black and the Night's Watch. I will not tell you to stay or go. You must make that choice yourself, and live with it for the rest of your days. As I have."
RIP Maester Aemon
