House of the DragonThe first big revelation of the year has already sent the Game of ThronesFandom has turned into a hysterical frenzy, but it was combined with a quote by George R.R. Martin, this may be the most important news the franchise has received in years. Be aware: There may be mild spoilers House of the DragonEpisode 1 is below.
Many fans predicted it would happen, House of the DragonEpisode 1 revealed that Targaryen kings knew secretly about a prophecy concerning the Long Night. King Viserys the I Targaryen (Paddy Considine), explains to his daughter, that certain members of their family have been gifted for centuries with prescient dreams and that King Aegon is one of them. “The Conquerer”Targaryen was among them. He explained that the reason they conquered Seven Kingdoms was to unify the realm against the White Walkers and to secure power to dragonriders to be able to fight this threat when it comes. He also reveals that the Targaryen rulers are aware of this prophecy. “The Song of Ice and Fire.”
This is what it was Fan theories discussedThis is heavily implied in the text. Virtually confirmed by the authorIt was already known, so it wasn’t really a surprise. The fact that this prophecy was a real consideration for Targaryen kings comes with all kinds of potential implications for the story – which, again, have been discussed on fan forums ad nauseam. The truth “revelation”Martin actually did an interview with Martin. Vanity FairLast week.
When was the prophecy about in? House of the DragonMartin said: “I don’t want to give too much away, because some of this is going to be in the later books.”This sentence alone is enough to set a hardcore fan’s pulse racing. Martin has confirmed this old fan theory to be true. It will also have an immediate impact on. Winter’s Winds Dream of Spring – that we may see characters learn about it and that it may help turn the tide of battle. This could make it the most important. ASoIaF Since the confirmation that Jon Snow is truly the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, it has been revealed. (R+L=J).
We can now look at Martin’s rest to see what he doesn’t consider to be spoilers for his two upcoming books. He said: “There was no sell-by date on that prophecy. That’s the issue. The Targaryens that know about it are all thinking, ‘Okay, this is going to happen in my lifetime, I have to be prepared!’ Or, ‘It’s going to happen in my son’s lifetime.’ Nobody said ‘it’s going to happen 200 years from now.’ If the Dance of the Dragons had not happened, what would’ve happened to the next generation? What would’ve happened in the generation after that? Yeah, there’s a lot to be unwound there.”
This tells us much about Targaryen prophecy and what it leaves out. This also sheds light on the actions and decisions of all Targaryen rulers from the Conquest to Daenerys’ father. “The Mad King.”
The show showed us that the prophecy was known only by the rulers. Some viewers speculated that House Targaryen may have had access to this information. Maester Aemon’s conversation with SamIn A feast for the Crows. However, House of the DragonViserys tells Rhaenyra, “The prophecy is jealously protected and is only passed from monarchs to monarchs.” This proves that characters such as Dany’s older brother, and the novellas’ are real. Daeron “The Drunken” TargaryenThey were unaware of the coming apocalypse.
The most important thing is that Martin’s interview with Martin gives us an insight into how HBO’s Westeros media empire will enhance the story in its main series of novels. These spinoffs are not necessarily connected. They do not have to be related to the fight against the Others. These shows are more appealing because they can be tied together with the books that many love. This alleviates any concerns about them being a cash grab.
