Vaemond Velaryon was a knight from House Velaryon during the reign of King Viserys I Targaryen. He had two sons, Daemion and Daeron Velaryon.
In the television adaptation House of the Dragon, Vaemond is the younger brother of Lord Corlys Velaryon instead of his nephew and he is portrayed by Wil Johnson.
In 126 AC, when Lord Corlys Velaryon, the Lord of the Tides, was struck by a sudden fever and fell gravely ill, a discussion began about the succession to Driftmark. Both of Corlys' children, Laena and Laenor, had died six years before. Laena's two daughters and Laenor's three sons still lived, but regardless, Lord Corlys' eldest nephew Vaemond insisted he should be Corlys' chosen successor, claiming that Laenor's three sons were not fathered by Laenor at all, and accusing their mother Rhaenyra Targaryen of committing adultery (this would also have simply ignored the fact that Laena's daughters still stood ahead of him in the line of succession). In response, Rhaenyra dispatched her new husband, Prince Daemon, to seize Ser Vaemond. She had his head removed, and fed his carcass to her dragon, Syrax. His five younger cousins had their tongues removed afterwards by King Viserys I Targaryen for repeating the rumors about Rhaenyra's three sons by Laenor.
