Bael's Bastard Posted October 17, 2013 Share Posted October 17, 2013 he did not, he was tested when he was older. Aemon is quoted in the opening post as saying, “Three times the gods saw fit to test my vows. Once when I was a boy, once in the fullness of my manhood . . ." So it is not just testing of Aemon, but a testing of vows that Aemon had presumably made. What vows? He was in his thirties when he declined to be made king and Egg was chosen, and nearly twice that age when the tragedy at Summerhall happened. Seemingly leaving either vows related to becoming/being a Maestar, or something else. And "boy" doesn't seem to last too long in Westeros, though I suppose it can be argued what Aemon (a 100 year old man, or close to it) would intend by using the word.
