House of the Dragon, like its predecessor Game of Thrones, have not been oblivious to showing small details that can escape the eyes of the viewers. Prequel fans discovered one on the banners of Rhaenyra and his brother Aegon Targaryen. According to them, they managed to decipher a deep message.
House of the Dragonthe streaming network’s fantasy series HBO which premiered in August of last year, remained on the air with its first season until the end of October and was in charge of narrating the events that occurred within the House of Targaryens. It is about the events that provoke the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons, which will take place in the second installment.
The hit series House of the Dragon is the prequel to game of Thrones set almost 200 years before the birth of Daenerys Targaryen (Emily Clarke). Both shows have enormous similarities, but the plot of the spin-off is characterized mainly by the constant fight between the members of the Targaryen family for the coveted Iron Throne.
While awaiting the arrival of the second season of House of the Dragon, which is currently in the middle of production, fans of the universe created by the author of the novels, George RR Martin, began to speculate on Reddit about a small but significant detail found. on the banners of the House of Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) and that of Aegon II Targaryen (Tom Glynn-Carney).
According to a House of the Dragon fan discussion on Reddit, Rhaenyra’s banner features a four-legged dragon, while her half-brother Aegon’s only has two. As expected, this generated intrigue in the viewers, so they began to speculate deciphering the true meaning of the symbols.
Fans of the HBO prequel find it strange because all the dragons featured in both House of the Dragon and Game of Thrones only have two legs. However, some viewers put forward various theories as to what it could mean. According to them, one of the most obvious is that it simply shows that Rhaenyra and her allies currently have more dragons than their rivals.
Other fans said so too it could be given the possible existence of other dragon races that have not appeared on the screen so far. Other speculation suggests that Daenerys Targaryen used the banner of a two-legged dragon until she set sail for Westeros in Game of Thrones, before changing it to the four-legged one. Viewers believe it was a continuity error that the writers are trying to fix by introducing two versions: the original four-legged one and the new two-legged one, with Daenerys going back to her roots when she’s ready to take the Iron Throne. .
