‘House of the Dragon’: Why is the egg stolen by Daemon so important? Understand!
the second episode of ‘The House of the Dragon‘ showed House Targaryen even more divided as Prince Daemon secluded himself in Dragonstone after Rhaenyra was named heir to the Iron Throne.
Furthermore, he even stole a dragon egg before departing the Royal Portal, which led to a conflict when it was revealed that the stolen egg had been chosen for the birthplace of Baelon, son of Viserys who died shortly after birth.
This egg was important to Viserys, but it could also be important to the general lore of the franchise created by George RR Martin…
When Rhaenyra and Viserys are informed of the theft, they discover that the egg came from a dragon named Dreamfyre, which is how they knew it was the egg of choice for Baelon.
Anyone familiar with Martin’s novels knows that Dreamfyre is of great importance as she is believed to be the mother of Daenerys Targaryen’s three dragons.
Dreamfyre was assembled by Princess Rhaena Targaryen years before the events of ‘The Dragon’s House. Rhaena married a man named Androw of Fair Isle, though she was more interested in her sister than he was.
Her sister-in-law was named Elissa Farman, and she had a very close relationship with Rhaena for quite a while in their lives.
However, Elissa wanted to sail away and see the wonders the world had to offer and had to beg Rhaena several times before receiving any kind of financial aid to be able to travel, which led to her taking something that belonged to her friend.
Elissa stole three dragon eggs from the Targaryens before embarking on her adventures, but the search for the eggs never came to anything, and Elissa ended up disappearing into the sea.
Corlys Velaryon swore he saw her many years after her disappearance, but there was never an official record of her whereabouts.
Although there is never any mention of which dragon Elissa stole the eggs or what happened to them, she used to ride Dreamfyre with Rhaena.
If there was one dragon she had access to, it was Dreamfyre, so many fans theorized that the eggs she stole belonged to that specific dragon.
If that’s the case, the dragon egg stolen by Daemon will give birth to Drogon’s brother Rhaegal and Viserion, the dragons that were used to bring Daenerys Targaryen to power.
