Viserys Targaryen: Will I be remembered as a good king, Lyonel?
Lyonel Strong: Your Grace?
Viserys Targaryen: What will they say of me when the histories are written? I have neither fought nor conquered, nor suffered any great defeat.
Lyonel Strong: Some might call that good fortune.
Viserys Targaryen: It hardly makes a good song, does it? To be sung at feasts in a hundred years... five hundred.
Lyonel Strong: You have carried King Jaehaerys's legacy. And kept the realm strong. Is it not better to live in peace than to have songs sung after you are dead?
Viserys Targaryen (to Corlys): Upon their birth, Ser Laenor and Rhaenyra's children shall take their father's name, Velaryon... in keeping with our traditions. However, at such time when their firstborn ascends the Iron Throne, he or she will do so bearing the name Targaryen. Dragons will rule the Seven Kingdoms for the next hundred years, just as they did the last.
Viserys Targaryen: It is a war started by two malcontents, unhappy with decisions I made. If I now provide Daemon and Corlys succor, what will that say of their king?
Alicent Hightower: Perhaps, that he is a good man who loves his brother.
Viserys Targaryen: Well, if you truly believe that, my dear... then you possess a generous spirit.
Alicent Hightower: What do you believe, Viserys?
Viserys Targaryen: That I am forever doomed to anger one person in the pleasing of another.
Viserys Targaryen (to Rhaenyra): Aegon foresaw the end of the world of men. 'Tis to begin with a terrible winter gusting out of the distant north. Aegon saw absolute darkness riding on those winds. And whatever dwells within will destroy the world of the living. When this Great Winter comes, Rhaenyra, all of Westeros must stand against it. And if the world of men is to survive a Targaryen must be seated on the Iron Throne. A king or queen strong enough to unite the realm against the cold and the dark. Aegon called his dream "The Song of Ice and Fire."
