In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Kaeth was made Grand Maester at the age of eighty, and sent to the court of King Aegon V Targaryen. He died within a year of his appointment and was succeeded by Grand Maester Ellendor.
Kaeth's Lives of Four Kings is considered a literary classic, despite scanting Viserys II Targaryen, and his hand-drawn illuminations to be a masterpiece; only four original copies of his book survived, until Joffrey senselessly destroyed one at his wedding feast.
