Game of Thrones is filled with cool stuff and legends but if there’s one thing we love more than anything else, it’s Daenerys’s dragons. Why? Because they are dragons, for crying out loud! George R.R. Martin’s new book Fire & Blood was reported to have important details about the origins of Drogon and his brethren and the mystery surrounding the last known dragon eggs.
Esquire reports that in the book, it is revealed that a certain Lady Elissa Farman, a noblewoman who appears to be part of Queen Rhaena Targaryen’s entourage also happened to ride one of the last living dragons who was named Dreamfyre. The noble lady, being the adventurous sort, seems to have sailed off to Braavos without informing anyone and most possibly made off in secret with three dragon eggs.
When Queen Rhaena discovers that three dragon eggs are missing, Esquire reports, she tells King Jaehaerys who simply states: “Some spicemonger in Pentos will find himself possessed of three very costly stones.” The book goes on to explain that when taken out of the custody of Targaryen keepers, dragon eggs turn to stone.
Now, we know that Daenerys received three dragon eggs from Magister Illyrio Mopatis who gifted them to her saying, “the eons have turned them to stone, yet still they burn bright with beauty.” And the rest, as they say, is history.
