Rhaenyra Targaryen Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Rhaenyra Targaryen: Were I born a man, I could bed whomever I wanted. I could father a dozen b*stards, and no one in your court would blink an eye.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: Your father accused me of something. That I drank wine? Left the castle after dark?

Alicent Hightower: That you f**ked Daemon in a pleasure house.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: This is a vile accusation.

Alicent Hightower: Is it? You Targaryens do have queer customs.

Daemon Targaryen: This is a tragic world. You cannot live your life in fear, or you will forsake the best parts of it.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: I have no desire to live in fear. Only solitude.

Daemon Targaryen: Marriage is only a political arrangement. Once you are wed, you can do as you like.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: For men marriage might be a political arrangement. For women it is like to be a death sentence.

Alicent Hightower: To have every young knight and lord in the Seven Kingdoms fawning over you... What misery. It is rare for girls in this realm to get a choice between two suitors, no less two score of them.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: Those men and boys don't fawn over me. They only want my name and my Valyrian blood for their offspring.

Alicent Hightower: I think it's rather romantic.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: How romantic it must be to get imprisoned in a castle and made to squeeze out heirs. Sorry.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: How lucky you are to have a say in your own life.

Criston Cole: Many in the realm would gladly trade positions with you, Princess.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: Only because none of them has ever held my position. I may be the Princess of Dragonstone, but I am toothless.

Viserys Targaryen: Jason Lannister is an excellent match.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: He's arrogant and self-serious.

Viserys Targaryen: Well, I thought you might have that in common.

Rhaenys Targaryen (to Rhaenyra): Here is the hard truth, which no one else has the heart to tell you. Men would sooner put the realm to the torch than see a woman ascend the Iron Throne.

Rhaenys Targaryen: Whether it's to my daughter or to someone else's, your father will remarry sooner than late. His new wife will produce new heirs, and chances are better than not that one of those will be male. And when that boy comes of age and your father has passed, the men of the realm will expect him to be heir, not you. Because that is the order of things.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: When I'm Queen, I will create a new order.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: Everyone says Targaryens are closer to gods than to men but they say that because of our dragons. Without them, we're just like everyone else.

Viserys Targaryen: The idea that we control the dragons is an illusion. They're a power man should never have trifled with. One that brought Valyria its doom. If we don't mind our own histories, it will do the same to us. Targaryen must understand this to be King... or Queen.

(Rhaenyra lies her head on Alicent's lap...)

Alicent Hightower: You aren't worried about your position?

Rhaenyra Targaryen: I like this position. It's quite comfortable.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: I want to fly with you on dragon back see the great wonders across the Narrow Sea and eat only cake.

Alicent Hightower: I'm being serious.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: I never jest about cake.

Aemma Targaryen: You will lie in this bed soon enough, Rhaenyra. This discomfort is how we serve the realm.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: I'd rather serve as a knight and ride to battle and glory.

Aemma Targaryen: We have royal wombs, you and I. The child bed is our battlefield. We must learn to face it with a stiff lip.

Rhaenyra Targaryen (narration): The only thing that could tear down the House of the Dragon was itself.
