All dragons from House of the Dragon

All dragons from House of the Dragon

Speaking of a series based on the Targaryens, a certain curiosity about all the dragons in House of the Dragon is natural: what are their main characteristics and who has ridden them over the course of their long lives? These questions are answered by Georhe R. R. Martin in his works, such as Fire and Blood, on which this series is based. You can buy it here on Amazon.

A symbol of strength and unbeatenness for House Targaryen, dragons have been the protagonists of many battles, and some of them died right on the battlefield. As King Viserys (Paddy Considine) himself admits, without them the Targaryens are just mere mortals. Being, then, House Targaryen the only family of Dragon Lords survived the Disaster of Valyria, the dragons, for them take on an even more important meaning, as well as deterrent for anyone who wants to rebel against them and a source of pride.

All the dragons of House of the Dragon

Balerion, the dragon of Aegon the Conqueror and Viserys Targaryen Vermitor, the dragon of King Jaehaerys Targaryen and Hugh Hammer Caraxes, the dragon of Aemon and Daemon Targaryen Syrax, the dragon of Rhaenyra Targaryen Meleys, the dragon of Alyssa and Rhaenys Targaryen Sunfyre, the dragon of Aegon Targaryen Tessarion, the dragon of Daeron Targaryen Vhagar, the dragon of Aemond Targaryen Other dragons that may be present in House of the Dragon Dragons that may be excluded from the series

Balerion, Aegon the Conqueror's dragon and Viserys Targaryen

Balerion was also called Black Terror because its scales and wings were black in color. His name was a tribute to the Old Gods of Valyria and was the largest and most majestic dragon ever seen in all of Westeros. The first man to ride Balerion was Aegon the Conqueror himself; without him and his sister-wives' dragons, it would have been impossible to take control of Westeros.

After Aegon's death, Balerion passed to King Maegor the Cruel and, later, to Princess Aerea, before becoming the mount of Viserys Targaryen, when he was still a prince. At the time, however, Balerion was already very old, and he died only a year later. After that, Viserys no longer claimed any dragon.

Vermitor, the dragon of King Jaehaerys and Hugh Hammer

After living in solitude for several decades following the death of his Dragon rider, Jaehaerys, Vermithor will later be ridden by Hugh Martello.

Caraxes, the dragon of Aemon and Daemon Targaryen

One of the main characters of House of the Dragon will be Daemon Targaryen, played by Matt Smith. For this reason, it is obvious that he will also have a role of a certain importance his mount, Caraxes, one of the largest and oldest dragons of the Targaryen family. Caraxes has red scales, which is why it is also called "Bloodsucker".

Although Daemon rides it now, in the past Caraxes belonged to Prince Aemon Targaryen, the third son of King Jaehaerys, who was killed by a crossbow bolt. Left without a rider, Caraxes was chased after being claimed by Prince Daemon Targaryen.

Syrax, the dragon of Rhaenyra Targaryen

Rhaenyra Targaryen, played by Ella D'Arcy, is one of the other main characters in House of the Dragon and is the granddaughter of Daemon, as the daughter of her older brother, King Viserys. As with Caraxes, Rhaenyra's dragon Syrax will also be an important part of the series. While not as large or formidable in battle as Caraxes, Syrax is still larger than most of House Targaryen's dragons.

House of The Dragon Syrax's scales are yellow in color and its name was given to it by Rhaenyra in honor of a Valyrian goddess, which suggests that this dragon probably never had a previous owner.

Meleys, the dragon of Alyssa and Rhaenys Targaryen

Eva Best plays Princess Rhaenys Targaryen, the "Queen who was never" married to Corlys Velaryon, played by Steve Toussaint. Rhaenys is the cousin of King Viserys and, as Targaryen, she also has a dragon: it is Meleys. Meleys, like Caraxes, also has bright red scales, a characteristic that has earned her the nickname of the Red Queen. Meleys is one of the oldest and largest dragons after Vhagar, which we have already talked about.

However, Rhaenys is not the first Targaryen to ride Meleys: before her, she had belonged to the Princess Alyssa Targaryen, the fifth daughter of King Jaehaerys. Alyssa died due to the complications of giving birth to her son Aegon, younger brother of King Viserys and Prince Daemon Targaryen. Deprived of a knight, Meleys was finally claimed by Rhaenys.

Sunfyre, Aegon Targaryen's dragon

Another character in House of the Dragon has a namesake in Game of Thrones: Aegon Targaryen. Without going into too much detail to avoid spoilers, it is very likely that both Aegon and his dragon, Sunfyre, will play a very important role throughout the history of House Targaryen.

Despite being one Of the younger dragons, Sunfyre is still enormous in size and is known as Sunfyre the Golden due to its glittering golden scales. An interesting feature of Sunfyre is the flames it produces, of a golden color that matches the color of its scales.

Tessarion, the dragon of Daeron Targaryen

Daeron Targaryen, brother of Aegon , Rides a female dragon named Tessarion. A bit like Meleys is known as the Red Queen, Tessarion is also known as the Blue Queen due to the dark cobalt blue color of her wings. Like Sunfyre, Tessarion's brilliant blue flames match the color of its scales.

Tessarion is different from other dragons also because its claws and belly are bright bronze, in contrast to the dark blue of most of his body.

Vhagar, the dragon of Aemond Targaryen

Aemond Targaryen is the brother of the already mentioned Daeron and Aegon, and is, just like his two brothers , a dragon rider. Aemond rides Vhagar, who was one of the three dragons used by the Targaryens to conquer the Seven Kingdoms: Vhagar, during the period of the conquest, was ridden by Queen Visenya Targaryen, before being passed down to Baelon Targaryen and Lady Laena Velaryon, before passing her own to Aemond.

At the time of House of the Dragon, Vhagar is one of the largest dragons in Westeros, only beaten by Balerion in terms of size. Vhagar is a bronze-colored dragon with green / blue highlights and bright green eyes.

Other dragons that may be featured in House of the Dragon

Among all the dragons in House of the Dragon , those mentioned so far are the main ones. However, there will likely be many more in the series that could play a major role. Here's a quick rundown of some of the other dragons that may be featured in House of the Dragon.

Dreamfyre, the dragon of Rhaena and Helaena Targaryen: Dreamfyre is a blue and silver dragon and is ridden by Halaena Targaryen, the sister of Aemond, Daeron and Aegon. Dreamfyre was first ridden by Rhaena Targaryen, the niece of Aegon the Conqueror.

Moondancer, the dragon of Baela Targaryen: Baela rides Moondancer, one of the youngest dragons in House of the Dragon, being only as big as a war horse when Baela first rode it. Moondancer is a slender, green-colored dragon. He is described as very fast, both on earth and in heaven.

Silverwing, the dragon of Queen Alysanne Targaryen and Ulf White: White was a surname used for bastard children, so it is deducible that Ulf White is a Targaryen bastard; he rides the dragon Silverwing which, before him, had belonged to Queen Alysanne Targaryen, grandmother of King Viserys. As its name suggests, Silverwing was a silver-colored dragon, docile and very friendly to strangers.

Vermax, Arrax and Tyraxes, the dragons of Jacaerys, Lucerys and Joffrey Targaryen: It is likely that Vermax and Arrax will be featured in House of the Dragon, as the actors who will play their Dragon Riders Jacaerys (Harry Collett) and Lucerys (Elliot Grihault) have already been chosen. However, as we don't yet know who will play Joffrey, their dragons may not appear until future seasons of the series.

Seasmoke, the dragon of Laenor Velaryon and Addam of Hull: it's a silver-gray dragon which initially belonged to Laenor Velaryon, who loved riding it. Later, he went to live in Dragonstone, the ancient stronghold of the Targaryen, remaining without a knight for nearly ten years. Eventually, during the Dance of the Dragons, Seasmoke will be claimed by Addam of Hull, a bastard son who will later be legitimized.

Sheepstealer, the dragon of Nettles: Like Seasmoke, Sheepstealer is also a wild Rock dragon of the Dragon. He earned his name thanks to his fondness for mutton. Sheepstealer is mud brown in color and has had only one rider, Nettles, a bastard daughter of unknown origin who was the only one who managed to tame Sheepstealer: to do so, she offered him fresh sheepskin every day, until she gained his trust. br>

Dragons that may be excluded from the series

It has been confirmed by the House of the Dragon showrunners that we will see 17 dragons in the series. However, there are around 20 dragons in total in the Dance of the Dragons. As such, it appears that some dragons featured in the book may not make an appearance in the series. Here's what they are.

Cannibal: This is another wild dragon from Dragonstone who has earned this macabre nickname because he devours the corpses of other dead dragons. He may not be there because he has never been ridden by anyone.

Gray Ghost: he too has never been ridden, and his name derives from his nature, particularly elusive to him. He was killed by Sunfyre, Aegon's dragon.
