What about the dragons?
Though Daenerys is referred to as the “Mother of Dragons” throughout Game of Thrones, there really aren’t that many dragons left alive in late 200 AC. In the series, Daenerys laments the fact that the dragons were held captive in King’s Landing after the Dance of the Dragons nearly drove the species to extinction.
“A dragon is not a slave. They were terrifying, extraordinary,” Daenerys tells Jon about the dragons in season seven. “They filled people with wonder and awe, and we locked them in here. They wasted away. They grew small. And we grew small, as well.”
You can see the dragons in their full glory in House of The Dragon. After all, it’s in the name.
Who wins the Dance of the Dragons?
We have King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) to thank for this reveal. During a season three scene, Joffrey tells his fiancée Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), “Rhaenyra Targaryen was murdered by her brother, or rather his dragon. It ate her while her son watched.”
While Game of Thrones hints that Aegon eventually defeats Rhaenyra, fans of the book might defend that her side ultimately wins. Why? Well, because Rhaenyra’s son with Daemon, Aegon III, inherited the Iron Throne after his uncle (also named Aegon) died.
