About

Vhagar is the oldest living and largest dragon of the many owned by House Targaryen in the Game of Thrones spin-off TV show House of the Dragon, which is based on the 2018 book Fire & Blood. The she-dragon Vhagar was ridden by Visenya Targaryen, Laena Velaryon and Aemond Targaryen during her lifetime. The dragon has been mentioned since the first season of Game of Thrones but officially appeared on screen in September 2022 in the spin-off series (HOTD). Online, Vhagar has sparked significant discourse among fans of the show since her introduction, particularly after the dragon killed two characters with a sneaky strategy by ambushing them from below. Vhagar has also been the subject of numerous memes and fan art among the fandom.
