House of the Dragon Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Corlys Velaryon: We are the realm's second sons, Daemon. Our worth is not given. It must be made.

Daemon Targaryen (to Corlys): I will speak of my brother as I wish. You will not.

Viserys Targaryen: Ever since my name was read by the archmaesters at the Great Council, I have felt Corlys Velaryon's envious gaze staring at me from across the Blackwater.

Lyonel Strong: You sit upon the highest seat in the realm, Your Grace. Proud men don't like having to look up.

Daemon Targaryen (about Mysaria): Our love does not know titles and traditions.

Daemon Targaryen: Where is the King? I don't see him.

Otto Hightower: His Grace would never lower himself to entertain such a mummer's farce.

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.

Corlys Velaryon (to Viserys): To elude a storm, you can either sail into it, or around it. But you must never await its coming.

Viserys Targaryen (about Rhaenyra): There are times when I would rather face the Black Dread himself than mine own daughter of 15.

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."

Viserys Targaryen (to Rhaenyra): A dragon's saddle is one thing, but the Iron Throne is the most dangerous seat in the realm.

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.

Daemon Targaryen: You're weak, Viserys. And that council of leeches knows it. They all prey on you for their own ends.

Daemon Targaryen: Ten years you've been king and yet not once have you asked me to be your Hand!

Viserys Targaryen: Why would I do that?

Daemon Targaryen: Because I'm your brother. And the blood of the dragon runs thick.

Viserys Targaryen: Then why do you cut me so deeply?

Viserys Targaryen: Daemon has ambition, yes, but not for the throne. He lacks the patience for it.

Otto Hightower: The gods have yet to make a man who lacks the patience for absolute power, Your Grace.
