Aemon Targaryen

"You don't know," Jon said bitterly. "No one knows. Even if I am his bastard, he's still my father . . . " Maester Aemon sighed. "Have you heard nothing I've told you, Jon? Do you think you are the first?" He shook his ancient head, a gesture weary beyond words. "Three times the gods saw fit to test my vows. Once when I was a boy, once in the fullness of my manhood, and once when I had grown old. By then my strength was fled, my eyes grown dim, yet that last choice was as cruel as the first. My ravens would bring the news from the south, words darker than their wings, the ruin of my House, the death of my kin, disgrace and desolation. What could I have done, old, blind, frail? I was helpless as a suckling babe, yet still it grieved me to sit forgotten as they cut down my brother's poor grandson, and his son, and even the little children . . . " Jon was shocked to see the shine of tears in the old man's eyes. "Who are you?" he asked quietly, almost in dread. A toothless smile quivered on the ancient lips. "Only a maester of the Citadel, bound in service to Castle Black and the Night's Watch. In my order, we put aside our house names when we take our vows and don the collar." The old man touched the maester's chain that hung loosely around his thin, fleshless neck. "My father was Maekar, the First of his Name, and my brother Aegon reigned after him in my stead. My grandfather named me for Prince Aemon the Dragonknight, who was his uncle, or his father, depending on which tale you believe. Aemon, he called me . . . "

Give Your Hair a Game of Throne Makeover
Kevin Alexander, the mastermind behind the Game of Throne hairstyle, created some of the most gorgeous and unique combination of twists, locks and braids hairdo. According to the hair designer, he spend a lot of time planning out the hairstyle to suit each character. One of his most challenging hairstyle is Daenerys Targaryen's character. The actress (Emilia Clarke) who played the character actually have very dark hair. Alexander would invest about two hours to put her hair together. This includes - tightly braiding the entire hair, carefully placing the wig on, and styling it. All of I have to say is Alexander is simply talented! If you're dying to want to replicate some of the GoT hairstyles, learn from the GIFs below! Daenerys Targaryen Split the back of your hair in half (horizontally) and tie the bottom half in a ponytail. Take a section of hair from the front of each side of the head and Dutch braid it back. Gather the braids together into a ponytail at the back of the head. Combine the braid with the bottom into one big Dutch braid. Catelyn Stark Part your hair in the center. Take a large section of hair from the front of both sides and begin twisting it until you reach the back of your nape. Clip it in place and combine the two twist into a big 3-strand braid. Sansa Stark Part hair in the middle. Take a small section on either side and begin French braiding until it reaches mid-length of your hair. Repeat with the other side. Gather the remaining hair from the front two sides and twist it to the back. Pin it to place and you're done! Cersei Lannister Take a small section of hair from the top of each side of the head and twist it to the back. Pin it in place. Gather a slightly bigger section under the first twist. Repeat the same process except you'll be combining it into a 3-strand braid.
