What Does Baela Targaryen’s Scroll to Daemon Say in House of the Dragon?

Baela’s scroll summarizes Vaemond Velaryon’s plan to petition the king (or his Hand) to be made heir to Driftmark by questioning the legitimacy of Rhaenyra’s sons with support from Queen Alicent. Since Lord Corlys was gravely injured offscreen, in a matter of weeks a new ruler could be sitting on the Driftwood Throne, making his succession an urgent matter.

Daemon and Rhaenyra quickly put plans into motion to counter Vaemond’s attempt to steal their son’s inheritance, namely a marriage offer between Baela and Rhaena and Rhaenyra’s oldest sons in exchange for Rhaenys’s support of Lucerys (Luke) as successor to the Sea Snake. Rhaenys accepts the offer after a dying King Viserys shows up during the proceedings to support Luke, so Vaemond loses.

That’s everything we have on what the scroll that Baela Targaryen sends to Daemon says in House of the Dragon. Check out some of our other content like who Aegon’s wife is in House of the Dragon, the time jump between episodes 7 and 8, and Otto’s second chance as Hand of the King.
