Warning: SPOILERS for the finale of the first season of House of the Dragon, “The Black Queen”, follow …

How House of the Dragon completed its first season finale, with 9.3 million viewers Sunday night across all HBO platforms, making it the most watched HBO finale since game of Thrones Series Finale 2019: War has come to Rhaenyra Targaryen’s doorstep. While the penultimate episode, “The Green Council,” centered on Queen Alicent and the coup to quickly put her son Aegon on the Iron Throne, “The Black Queen” centered on the Targaryens. about Dragonstone and their various reactions to the news that their lives were now all in danger.


This little storyline, along with the massive tragedy that unfolded at the end of the episode, helped the Game of Thrones wiki grow 214% day by day, which was the highest peak. peak of the season.

The other queen
who has never been

Rhaenyra herself has captured the interest of fans like no other character, who has not only been the most searched page for this episode, but also for the entire season, as we’ve been following her (through multiple time hops) since she’s was named heir to Iron Throne as a child. it’s up to her to be a mother now, several times, with children that her kingdom considers illegitimate successors. “The Black Queen” began with Rhaenya prematurely giving birth to a stillborn daughter, then ended with the grave news of her son Lucerys.

With two children lost in one episode, Rhaenyra’s face carried a violent punishment written all over it, knocking us out of the season and taking her to number 1 in the Top 10 …

  1. Rhaenyra Targaryen
  2. Lucery Velaryon
  3. Aemond Targaryen
  4. Targaryen demon
  5. Viserys I Targaryen
  6. Aerys II Targaryen
  7. Vagar
  8. Aegon II Targaryen
  9. The house of the dragon (series)
  10. Jacaerys Velaryon

With Rhaenyra now showing signs of Targaryen Manuals anger, it’s easy to imagine that she will also continue to win her pages throughout Season 2. She had left King’s Landing to escape an “impending storm”. but she now she looks ready to fly right in the middle.

The lost boy

Of course, it’s hardly surprising that Lucerys was number two (followed by Aemond at age three) as that was his unfortunate, uh, accident (it’s really an accident if you put the biggest dragon in all of it. existence on someone during a massive thunderstorm?) gave the finale its action-packed great calamity. Aemond chased after Lucerys, who was riding his (much smaller) dragon Arrax, as he left Storm’s End, on the mammoth Vhagar and the pursuit was so intense that the two dragons got into business, ignoring the orders of their looters.


Vhagar gnawed at Arrax and that’s all he wrote for poor Lucerys, who was tasked with visiting Lord Borros Baratheon because it seemed like Dragonstone’s easiest (and closest) priority. But Lucerys’ mission ended in a massive death (another unwitting blow to decades of catastrophic misunderstanding) and she has no turning back.

Vhagar, in all his gargantuan glory, was also in the Top 10 at number seven, as readers wanted to know all about the larger dragon now that we’ve seen him grow from Laena Velayron’s war steed to a tormented sky tyrant mounted by the prince. Emondo.


However, despite his first appearance in the series, the dragon Vermithor, which Daemon went to find and sing, eventually failed to make it into the Top 10. It’s possible that it was because viewers didn’t know exactly which dragon it was. as HBO only confirmed it was Vermithor, who dates back to the reign of Jaehaerys Targaryen, the next day.

Classics never go out of style

As mentioned, Rhaenyra was the most searched GoT Wiki page all season. And even if others House of the Dragon characters like King Viserys, Daemon, and Laenor Velaryon made the Top 10, as well as game of Thrones‘Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. Regularly enough that by the end of the season, Jon was the sixth most popular page on the wiki and Dany the seventh.


So it’s clear that readers are still holding a fire (or torches) for these two and all the talk of Aegon’s dream and the “prince who was promised” has fueled extra fervor for this pair of grandchildren. -aunt. Although, it must be said that game of Thrones as one series has never given us a complete answer as to who Azor Ahai’s reincarnation is, be it Jon, Dany or Arya Stark. All we know for sure is that it wasn’t Stannis Baratheon.
