Could Rhaenyra pass on Aegon’s dream? Here’s why we don’t see him in Game of Thrones


King Viserys has made sure his daughter Rhaenyra Targaryen fully understands the importance of Aegon the Conqueror’s motives for installing the Iron Throne and uniting the Seven Kingdoms. In House of the Dragon, Aegon I Targaryen is shown to have had a prophetic dream, in which he may have seen the loss of Westeros to the Army of the Dead. Although it wasn’t specifically mentioned, Game of Thrones fans fully understand what King Viserys was trying to explain to Rhaenyra Targaryen.

Game of Thrones fans also know that Aegon The Conqueror’s dream hasn’t even been mentioned once in the show and that could mean two things for House of the Dragon. Either Rhaenyra passed on this precious knowledge, but it was lost some time later. Or, Rhaenyra was unable to deliver the message, which directly explains why we don’t see him in Game of Thrones. We know that Daemon Targaryen Doesn’t Know Aegon’s Dreamso it’s possible that Rhaenyra will give this knowledge to one of her children, after all, knowledge is power (back to Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish).

The most important thing to note is that neither Danaerys nor Viserys Targaryen from Game of Thrones knew anything about Aegon’s dream. So if none of the Targaryens after The Mad King knew about it, what happened to the prophecy? Let’s find out.

Rhaenyra Targaryen Doesn’t Pass It On According to Game of Thrones Story

While Rhaenyra’s children may not pass the prophecy on to future generations, Rhaenyra herself will almost certainly charge her proclaimed successor with Aegon’s dream. Viserys has frequently emphasized the gravity and importance of Aegon’s dream, so Rhaenyra is unlikely to keep it a secret as he has the possibility of being killed in the Targaryen Civil War. As a result, Rhaenyra will most likely inform her heir Jacaerys Velaryon of the prophecy in House of the Dragon season 2. But who’s to say Jace spread the word before he died?

Rhaenyra’s only known living successor at the time of her demise is her son Aegon the Younger, who eventually followed Aegon II Targaryen to the Iron Throne. It is therefore assumed that Rhaenyra telling the Great Council of House of the Dragon episode 1 is her explaining to her son the story of Aegon’s dream. Although Rhaenyra can inform Aegon III of the prophecy before dying, Aegon is only ten years old when Rhaenyra Targaryen dies in Fire & Blood, so he is too young to understand or remember it in the future. He may even voluntarily reject the dream after the tremendous horrors of family infighting and the loss of many loved ones.

Why does Game of Thrones not mention Aegon’s dream?

Rhaenyra Targaryen couldn’t restore what her father gave her, and so we don’t hear anything about it in Game of Thrones. This may also be the reason why no one south of the Wall, or even most Wall people, treats White Walkers and the Undead as mythology.

It was clear that the further south you traveled in Game of Thrones’ Westeros, the less people believed in White Walkers. Even in House of the Dragon, most people don’t seem to care what lies beyond the Wall.
