In House of the Dragon, dragons will be shown being used as both protectors of different Targaryen factions and as mighty weapons in a war called the Dance of the Dragons, a campaign for succession among the different Targaryen claimants to the Iron Throne that lasts for years and ends tragically for all parties involved, dragon and human alike. The dragons who participated in the Dance of the Dragons are detailed here. Due to the lengthy periods of time covered in Fire & Blood, some have already made their House of the Dragon debut, while others aren’t likely to make an appearance for many more seasons. You can watch this amazing TV series on 123 movies.

Balerion the Black Dread

Balerion is the biggest and oldest of the Targaryen dragons, and he was ridden by Aegon the Conqueror and subsequently by King Viserys I. By the time House of the Dragon starts, the black and red mal dragon has already perished, but his enormous skull may be seen at the Red Keep.


Vhagar is an old female dragon and the second biggest of the Targaryen dragons; she was Queen Visenya’s horse during Aegon’s victory. They worked together to destroy the Arryn fleet at Gulltown. Vhagar, named after the Old Valyrian deity, will have a role in the events of House of the Dragon.

Syrax (Rhaenyra Targaryen’s Dragon)

The niece of Daemon Targaryen, Rhaenyra Targaryen (Ella D’Arcy), is one of the other important characters in House of the Dragon. Syrax, Rhaenyra’s dragon, will play a significant role in the show, much as Daemon and Caraxes did. Syrax is bigger than most dragons, yet he is not quite as enormous or powerful as Caraxes. Syrax has yellow scales and was named by Rhaenyra after a Valyrian goddess, both of which suggest that Rhaenyra was the first person to ever ride her.

Meleys (Rhaenys Targaryen’s Dragon)

Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, the cousin of King Viserys, will be portrayed by Eva Best in House of the Dragon. A dragon called Meleys flies with Rhaenys, just as it does with Rhaenyra and Daemon. Like Caraxes, Meleys has gained the nickname “The Red Queen” because of her brilliant red dragon skin. After Vhagar, who will be discussed in more detail below, Meleys is among the oldest and biggest dragons in existence.


There must be a Blue Queen if there is a Red Queen. Tessarion is a cobalt blue dragon with copper belly scales, claws, and a crest, and she is also known by her nickname, the Blue Queen. If you look closely, you’ll see that Tessarion, in contrast to Meleys, has flames that are the same cobalt blue as her hair and eyes. Daeron Targaryen, the Daring, youngest son of Viserys I and Alicent Hightower, is bonded to the dragon Tessarion. You can enjoy this series on 123 movies.


The three dragons belonging to Daenerys Targaryen are said to have been born to a dragon named Dreamfyre. The first granddaughter of Aegon the Conqueror, Rhaena Targaryen, was first connected to the light blue and silver she-dragon. After Rhaena’s death, she stayed in the Dragonpit and became close to Helaena, Viserys Targaryen’s daughter with Alicent Hightower.


Stormcloud, the Dance of the Dragons’ youngest participant’s dragon, has never been mentioned in canon. He’s married to Aegon III, Rhaenyra Targaryen’s third son. After an assault on the ship transporting Aegon III and Viserys to the safety of Essos, Stormcloud sails them to safety.
