“House of the Dragon” (“The dragon house” in Spanish) issued its tenth and final episode recently. One of the scenes that raised the most questions was when Daemon Targaryens approaches a mysterious dragon, which turns out to be Vermithor.
Recently, Ryan Condal, the showrunner of the HBO Max seriesconfirmed in an interview with Variety that is the beast of king Jaeharys I Targaryenwho appeared in the first episode.
During the Black Council, Matt Smith’s character mentions that they have many dragons in dragonstone to overtake the Greens, although the larger ones do not have riders.
Everything indicates that Daemon Targaryen plans to search new riders for dragons that lie beneath the fortress and his approach to Vermithor, where he sings a song to him in High Valyrian, the language of the Targaryens’ homeland, confirms this.
Next, we offer you the translation of the lyrics, thanks to Archive of Out Own.
TRANSLATION OF THE SONG IN HIGH VALYRIAN SINGED BY DAEMON TARGARYEN
but two heads
To a third they sing
From my voice:
The fires have spoken
And the price has been paid
with blood magic
With words of flame
with clear eyes
To unite the three
I sing to you
as one we meet
And with three heads
We’ll fly as we were meant to
WHAT DOES THE SONG IN ALTO VALYRIAN SING DAEMON TARGARYEN TO VERMITHOR MEAN?
The song Daemon Targaryen sings to Vermithor It is called ”Hāros Bartossi”, which in Spanish means “with three heads”. Although the music sounds good in its original language, which has been created for the series, the letter hides a powerful meaning.
The song is about Aegon the Conqueror and his two sister-wives. Together and with a total of three dragons they managed to conquer Westeros. Thus, The symbol of the Targaryens is a three-headed dragon. on a black background.
“Fire breather, winged leader” refers to a dragon and with “two heads to a third sing” may be describing Visenya and Rhaenys Targaryen following Aegon.
The next stanza talks about the “blood magic” and the “price has been paid”, which can allude to Valyriawhich was mighty to do those kind of spellswhich led to its total destruction.
“As one we gather and with three heads” clearly refers to the House Targaryensboth for its symbol and for the alliance between the brothers to conquer Westeros. After having achieved it, the Seven Kingdoms will be the place where dragons will rule and fly.
Just as Aegon the Conqueror used the dragons (Balerion, Vhagar, and Meraxes) to initially take possession of the Seven Kingdoms, so now Daemon could be asking Vermithor to help defend it from usurpers. This would be a new alliance between riders and dragons.
