What Didn’t Viserys Tell Daemon in House of the Dragon? Answered

Bringing to light what Viserys didnt tell Daemon in House of the Dragon.

In the season finale of House of the Dragon, Rhaenyra and Daemon are at odds as to how to handle the usurping of the Iron Throne. Daemon wants to rush into war, but Rhaenyra, and rightly so, doesn’t want to rule over ash and bone. Rhaenyra reminds Daemon of her oath to Viserys, but Daemon seems ignorant of her secret duty. The question is: what didn’t Viserys tell Daemon in House of the Dragon?

What Did Rhaenyra Mean by ‘He Never Told You’ in House of the Dragon? Answered

Viserys did not tell Daemon about Aegon’s dream in House of the Dragon. This is despite Daemon being heir to the Iron Throne for quite some time until he was stripped of that claim and given to Rhaenyra Targaryen, Viserys’ daughter.

According to Aegon’s dream—which he dubbed A Song of Ice and Fire—a descendent with Targaryen blood will fight against an evil in the North that threatens every living being. While White Walkers weren’t specifically mentioned, the implication is clear.

This secret is only told to the heir of the Iron Throne, passed down from king to king or, in the case of Rhaenyra, from king to queen. As to why Viserys didn’t tell Daemon about A Song of Ice and Fire, that’s a bit of a mystery, but you can likely assume Viserys felt Daemon wasn’t ready for that responsibility.

There you have it: what Viserys didn’t tell Daemon in House of the Dragon. Targaryens have had a long history of prophetic dreams; Helaena has uttered a few strange sayings herself such as the “beast beneath the boards.” For more guides on House of the Dragon, decide if you believe King Viserys thought he was speaking to Rhaenyra instead of Alicent before he died.
