After Daeron's death, Maester Aemon became a maester at the Citadel.
On his journey King Aegon provided him with an "honor guard" (emptying the dungeons) to take the vows of the Night's Watch with him.
Among them was Brynden Rivers, who later went on to become Lord Commander of the Watch.
Ser Duncan accompanied them aboard the Golden Dragon on the way to Eastwatch-by-the-Sea.

He has served as a maester to the Night's Watch at Castle Black for so long that the rest of the Seven Kingdoms has forgotten about his Targaryen blood.
In the television series Game of Thrones he is portrayed by Peter Vaughan.
He speaks softly but his counsel is so valued and respected that many fall silent to hear it.
Despite his age his mind is still sharp as is his hearing. Aemon Targaryen was the third son of King Maekar I Targaryen and his wife, Lady Dyanna Dayne.
At one point after his younger brother, Aegon V, became the squire of the hedge knight Duncan the Tall the pair visited Aemon in Oldtown. Aemon forged his chain, and earned the title of Maester Aemon, finishing his studies at the age of 19.
He served an unidentified lord until his father, now King Maekar I, summoned him to court to serve the Iron Throne.
Not wanting to sit on the small council as he felt that would displace the Grand Maester, Aemon chose instead to serve at Dragonstone, the seat of his eldest brother, Prince Daeron, until Daeron died of the pox.
