How The
Prophecy Of The
Song Of Ice And
Fire Will Tear
Westeros Apart
Beginning nearly 200 years before the events of "Game of Thrones,” HBO’s hit prequel "House of the Dragon" has already been renewed for a second season. Its time-jumping style can be a bit of a challenge to keep up with, but talk of a familiar prophecy wasn’t missed by fans
who know certain events are relevant
to both stories.
King Viserys tells his young daughter Rhaenrya about The Song of Ice and Fire which foretells the fate of Westeros, but it takes over a decade for her to realize its importance. While fans know the prophecy refers to Jon Snow, she mistakenly thinks he is saying one of her children is ‘the chosen one’ to unite the kingdoms.
As the ongoing war of succession between the King’s children and their enemies grows fierier with each passing year, he accidentally tells The Song of Ice and Fire to Alicent Hightower as well. Now, with Alicent given yet another reason to rebel against Rhaenyra as her father's heir, things are about to get even dicier for the competing kingdoms.
