    Watch GoT, but have never read the books, so foe me I went Dayne based off a quick look up of both men’s skill and reputation. Perhaps I take this a bit too serious.

    Same here. I know very little about both but we at least know that Dayne is neck and neck with Selmy. That, combined with how much praise Selmy, Jaime, and Ned have given him has me leaning towards Arthur.

    I wanted to add more info for Aemon but I couldn't find any other info for him. Wasn't too difficult for Arthur since he died during Robert's Rebellion; Aemon on the other hand died around 150 years before the start of the series.

    am I the only one that thinks comparing live characters with dead ones that are vaguely mentioned is pointless? it is like arguing Milo of Croton vs Fedor and Jon Jones. one is hearsay while we have hours of combat footage available of the other two. we have scenes(or detailed descriptions in the book) of the Hound, Kingslayer, Bronn, etc fighting while all those guys are just mentioned.

    Agreed.

    I'm going under the assumption that best of any era are roughly on the same level. There's nothing to indicate that sword fighting techniques have at all evolved in Westeros, so I equate them relative to their own peers. If someone was fifth best in their generation, they'd probably be around fifth best in the modern day.

    That said, Aemon and Dayne are basically the same dude. They were the best of their era, peerless in skill, valor and chivalry.

    There's nothing to indicate a skill difference (if anything, Aemon would have the edge due to his younger Kingsguard placement). The only thing that distinguishes them is that Dayne has the superior weapon. Because of that, I have to give it to Dayne.

    pls

    wake me up when his sword consumes the soul of those of weak willpower who try to wield it, and if the wielder wills it, leaves a trail of black ash so as to disguise followup attacks

    Aemon met his end in Dorne did he not? Seems he cant handle the heat, or the dornishmen. I say Arthur Dayne takes this one.

    Dayne with Dawn may be the GOAT for swordsmen. I'll vote for him every matchup.
