Aegon Targaryen was the first king of the Targaryen dynasty of Westeros. As a result, many of his descendants were named after him, including four other kings who sat the Iron Throne.

Characters named "Aegon Targaryen" include:

  1. King Aegon I Targaryen, also called Aegon the Conqueror, unifier of six of the Seven Kingdoms.
  2. Prince Aegon, eldest son of Aenys Targaryen, elder brother of Jaehaerys I Targaryen and grandson of Aegon the Conqueror. Had he ascended the throne, he would have ruled as "Aegon II" instead of his brother's great-grandson a century later.
  3. King Aegon II Targaryen, son of King Viserys I Targaryen, who usurped the throne from his half-sister Rhaenyra Targaryen during the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.
  4. King Aegon III Targaryen, son of Rhaenyra and half-nephew of Aegon II.
  5. King Aegon IV Targaryen, also called "Aegon the Unworthy". Son of Viserys II Targaryen and nephew of Aegon III. A glutton and one of the worst kings of the Targaryen dynasty. Legitimized his bastard son Daemon Blackfyre on his deathbed, resulting in the creation of the cadet branch of House Targaryen known as House Blackfyre.
  6. King Aegon V Targaryen, son of King Maekar Targaryen. Brother of Maester Aemon and father of Aerys II Targaryen, who later became known as "the Mad King".
  7. Prince Aegon, the first son of Rhaegar Targaryen and elder half-brother of Jon Snow. He was murdered along with his mother and sister during the Sack of King's Landing. Had he lived, he would have ascended the throne as "Aegon VI".

Over the centuries, many other noble families have named their children "Aegon" in honor of the Targaryens. Other characters named "Aegon" but with a different surname include:

  • Aegon Blackfyre, eldest son of Daemon Blackfyre, who was himself the bastard son of King Aegon IV Targaryen. As a result, Aegon Blackfyre was also a descendant of Aegon the Conqueror.
