House of the Dragon has actually invested even more time politicking than dragon-riding up until now in its initial period, yet in episode 7 the genuine dragons of House Targaryen took spotlight for a quick time. With Laena dead, her dragon Vhagar lacked a biker, and also while everybody else was regreting throughout her funeral service, it ended up being the ideal time for a brand-new cyclist to declare the earliest continuing to be dragon in Westeros.

Now that Vhagar has a brand-new cyclist, it’s worth taking a 2nd to make up each of the dragons that House of the Dragon has actually established up until now, whose side they’re on, and also that their cyclist is.

[Ed. note: This story contains spoilers for episode 7 of House of the Dragon.]

Riders: Laena (deceased), Aemond Targaryen

The earliest and also greatest of the Targaryen dragons in Westeros, and also the just living residue of Aegon’s occupation, Vhagar was as soon as ridden by Visenya Targaryen when she, her sibling, and also her sibling joined the 7 kingdoms. Vhagar after that passed to Baelon Targaryen, prior to being declared by her newest (before episode 7) cyclist, Laena Velaryon. After Laena’s fatality, the dragon stayed riderless for just a brief time prior to being declared by Aemond Targaryen, whose dragon egg child present did not hatch out. Despite Vhagar’s age, she continues to be among one of the most fearful and also harmful dragons in Westeros, and also is currently ridden by among the Greens’ most ardent fans.


Rider: Aegon Targaryen

A bright-gold dragon with pink-membraned wings, Sunfyre is the dragon of Aegon Targaryen and also a speedy flier, though much from the greatest of the Targaryens’ continuing to be dragons.


Rider: Helaena Targaryen

Dreamfyre is a pale-blue dragon, older yet even more slim than a lot of the others. She goes to some factor declared by Helaena Targaryen, though it’s not truly clear if this has actually occurred yet since episode 7.

Rider: Rhaenyra Targaryen

Rhaenyra is most likely the initial cyclist of Syrax, a dragon she called after a Valyrian siren when the princess declared the dragon at 9 years of ages. Syrax was virtually as big and also harmful as Caraxes, though Rhaenyra has not ridden her right into a real fight.

Rider: Daemon Targaryen

Caraxes is among the biggest and also most harmful of all the continuing to be Targaryen dragons, many thanks partly to the truth that it’s seen battle most just recently. Caraxes has red ranges and also was ridden by Daemon Targaryen throughout the Prince’s lots of fights around the globe, most especially in the Stepstones.


Rider: Rhaenys Targaryen

Meleys is referred to as the Red Queen many thanks to her red ranges and also pink wing membrane layer. Meleys is currently an old dragon, yet in her more youthful days she was probably the swiftest and also most active of all the Westerosi dragons. Despite her age, nonetheless, she continues to be fearful in fight.

Rider: Jacaerys Velaryon

Vermax hatched out from the egg that was offered to Jacaerys when he was a baby in a feat partly developed to reveal his condition as a true-born Targaryen. Because of this, the dragon continues to be relatively tiny by the time House of the Dragon gets with Jace.


Rider: Lucerys Velaryon

Just like his sibling’s dragon, Luke’s was hatched out from an egg he was provided at birth. This indicates that the dragon is rather tiny at this moment, yet will certainly enlarge in time.
