House of the Dragon Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Daemon Targaryen: Aegon was in your grasp. You should've killed him yourself.

Erryk Cargyll: Arryk and I were named to the Kingsguard at just 8 and 10. And we swore the same oath: to defend the whole of the royal family. So what were we to do when they turned against one another?

Otto Hightower: All hail King Aegon! Aegon the Magnanimous, Second of His Name, King of the Andals, and the Rhoynar, and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and Protector of the Realm.

Martyn Reyne: Hail King Aegon!

Aegon II Targaryen (to Leon): "The Magnanimous"?

(Leon shrugs his shoulders)

Helaena Targaryen: I'm afraid.

Aegon II Targaryen: Don't be. They'd be fools to come with Vhagar protecting the city.

Helaena Targaryen: Not the dragons. The rats.

Aegon II Targaryen: The queen is an enduring mystery... is she not?

Daemon Targaryen: Fly with me. It is a command.

Rhaenys Targaryen: Would that you were the king.

Cregan Stark: Do you think my ancestors built a 700-foot wall of ice to keep out snow and savages?

Jacaerys Velaryon: What does it keep out?

Cregan Stark: Death.

Jacaerys Velaryon: The realm will soon tear itself apart... if men do not remember the oath sworn to King Viserys and to his rightful heir.

Cregan Stark: Starks do not forget their oaths, my prince. But you must know that my gaze is forever torn between north and south. In winter, my duty to the Wall is even more dire than the one I owe to King's Landing.

Cregan Stark: The North must stand ready. Winter is coming.

Jacaerys Velaryon: Coming? What is this, then, that falls from the skies and shivers my bones?

Cregan Stark: This is only a late summer snow, my prince. In winter, it will cover all you see, and all memories of warmth will be forgotten.

Cregan Stark: Duty is sacrifice. It eclipses all things, even blood. All men of honor must pay its price. The North owes a great duty to the Seven Kingdoms. One older than any oath. Since the days of the First Men, we have stood as guardians against the cold and the dark. Through its long tradition, the Night's Watch cultivated its strength from doomed men who had their life as their only possession. But my ancestor, Torrhen Stark, began a tradition by making an offering at the onset of winter: one in 10 men from our household was to be chosen to fortify the Watch. This is not a sentence but an honor. A duty embraced by all who serve the North. Even by mine own kin. The North must stand ready. Winter is coming.

Corlys Velaryon: Rhaenyra was complicit in our son's death. That girl destroys everything she touches.

Rhaenys Targaryen: That "girl" is holding the realm together at present. Every man standing 'round the Painted Table urges her to plunge the realm into war. Rhaenyra's the only one who's demonstrated restraint.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: You know my oath reaches beyond our personal ambitions. A Song of Ice and Fire.

Daemon Targaryen: What?

Rhaenyra Targaryen: The coming war against the darkness in the North, The Conqueror's Dream. Viserys shared it with me when he named me heir.

Daemon Targaryen: My brother... was a slave to his omens and portents. Anything to make his feckless reign appear to have purpose. Dreams didn't make us kings. Dragons did.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: He never told you... Did he?

Daemon Targaryen: The simple truth is this: we have more dragons than Aegon.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: Viserys spoke often of the Valyrian histories. I know them well. When dragons flew to war... everything burned. I do not wish to rule over a kingdom of ash and bone.

Bartimos Celtigar: There has never lived a Stark who forgot an oath.

Rhaenys Targaryen: The Greens are coming for you, Rhaenyra. And for your children.

Daemon Targaryen: That wh*re of a Queen murdered my brother and stole his throne. And you could have burned them all for it.

Rhaenys Targaryen: A war is like to be fought over this treachery, to be sure. But that war is not mine to begin.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: I wasn't ready to be Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. But... it was my duty. And, in time, I came to understand I had to earn my inheritance.

Lucerys Velaryon: I'm not like you.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: In what way, sweet boy?

Lucerys Velaryon: I'm not so... perfect.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: I am anything but. My father looked after me and helped to prepare me for my duties. Your mother will do the same for you.
