From the first episode of “house of the dragon‘, the HBO Max series referenced ‘game of Thrones‘ and solved one of the greatest mysteries of the Fans of George RR Martin’s work. Next we will explain what the prophecy of the “Song of Ice and Fire” consists of.

Before Viserys made Rhaenyra his heirtells him about one of the tasks that must be taken on in addition to the Crown and the Iron Throne: to fulfill The Dream of Aegon the Conquerorwho would it be one of the few Targaryens who have the gift of prophetic visions.

According to what the series tells, in which he worked closely George RR Martinthis dream is known as “Song of Ice and Fire”, the same name bearing the original saga that inspired the production of Game of Thrones.

Until then it was not known why the book collection had that title. Over the years, a few theories have toyed with the idea that ice portrayed Jon Snow and the Fire daeneryswhile others said that the ice were actually the White Walkers or also known as the Others.

King Viserys Targaryen explains to his daughter that Aegon’s true motive in conquering the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros was not just ambition but a prophetic dream. Like Daenys who dreamed of Valyria’s destruction, Aegon saw the end of the human world..

This destruction came in from the north a great winter that would bring darkness. The only way to fight it was All the kingdoms of the continent that were divided join the fight. Hence it was necessary to conquer them, and when that time has come, a Targaryen must have sat on the Iron Throne.

As Viserys mentions, it is not really explained in either the Fire and Blood books or the A Song of Ice and Fire books which prompted Aegon to conquer the entire continent after the Targaryens lived peacefully on Dragonstone for several generations.

The only thing recorded is that it arrived a suggestion by Argilac Durrandonthe king of the land of storms who offered one of his daughters in exchange for Aegon defeating Harren Hoare, the king of Harrenhal who was threatening his territory.

In an interview with Insider, one of the creators of House of the Dragon, Ryan Condal, said so The entire story of Aegon’s dream and his motivation to conquer Westeros comes from George RR Martin himself.. Therefore, it would not be a surprise that this will be introduced in the book “Wind of Winter” if one day the author manages to release the long-awaited sequel.


Basically, Aegon’s prophecy ensures that only a person of Targaryen blood, male or female, can save humanity from the White Walkers and the Long Night. it is something similar to the “prince who was promised” that was mentioned in “Game of Thrones” and that hinted at different characters throughout the seasons.

There will come a day when, after a long summer, the stars will bleed and the cold breath of darkness will fall upon the world. in this terrible hour A warrior will draw a fiery sword out of the fire. This sword will be called the Lightbringer, the Red Sword of Heroes, and the one wielding it will be Azor Ahai, and Darkness must flee from himdetails the Red Priestess Melisandre.

Also Aegon’s Prophecy It was engraved on the Valyrian steel dagger Viserys always carried., whose inscription was revealed with fire, in the style of The Lord of the Rings. This weapon is finished used by Arya Stark to kill the Night King.


The identity of the Azor Ahai has taken different directions throughout the series. At first, Melisandre stood by Stannis Baratheon thinking he was the Azor Ahai, but she turned out to be wrong. Although the Baratheons have magic in their blood, well the first of the family, Orys Baratheon, was the bastard brother of Aegon the Conqueror.

Others suggest so It was about DaenerysBut the bad ending they gave him in Season 8 of Game of Thrones put him off that path.

Hence, the person who fulfills all the requirements of both the prophecies of Aegon the Conqueror and Azor is Ahai Jon Snow, who is actually Aegon VI TargaryenSon of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, representing the fire and Ice. Likewise, wields the Valyrian steel sword Longclaw fused with dragonfire.

Although the series established that Arya Stark would be the one to assassinate the Night King, it was Jon Snow who managed to unite much of the kingdom, which was then divided after the War of the Five Kings.




One of the first moments of new series after “Game of Thrones” anticipated how brutal the production would be by recreating the tense moment when the queen dies in childbirth.

The scene takes place in front of one King Viseris I that he suffers when he loses his partner, a situation that has occurred for years in a dangerous process that Aemma describes in the series, pointing out: “The cot is our battlefield“. Learn more HERE
