House of the Dragon Quotes

Latest quotes added:

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.

Alicent Hightower: Listen to me, Aegon. Your grandfather, the Hand, will try to impress on you that Rhaenyra should be put to the sword. You must reject this counsel. We must not rule with cruelty and callousness. For all her faults, she is your sister, your father's daughter...

Aegon Targaryen: Do you love me?

Alicent Hightower: You imbecile.

Larys Strong (to Alicent): There is a web of spies at work in the Red Keep. Along its threads travels news of all our doings. Your father knows this, but has left it in place. More than once, it has proved advantageous to those willing to... feed the weaver.

Alicent Hightower (to Otto): Reluctance to murder is not a weakness!

Otto Hightower (to Alicent): A sacrifice made for the stability of the realm. No king has ever lived that hasn't had to forfeit the lives of a few to protect the many.

Otto Hightower: Well played.

Alicent Hightower: None of this is a game.

Otto Hightower: And yet you treat it as one. A charming contest, the prize, a pouch of silver. We have relied on one another these many years. And now it is the good of the family that we both desire. Whatever our differences, our hearts remain as one.

Alicent Hightower: Our hearts were never one. I see that now. Rather, I have been a piece that you moved about the board.

Mysaria (to Otto): There is no power but what the people allow you to take.

Rhaenys Targaryen (to Alicent): A true queen counts the cost to her people. And yet you toil still in service to men. Your father, your husband, your son. You desire not to be free, but to make a window in the wall of your prison. Have you never imagined yourself on the Iron Throne?

Otto Hightower: You'll not leave this room without declaring your intention.

Lord Merryweather: I am no oath breaker. I will not bend the knee.
