The Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon, continues the tradition of its predecessor by showcasing complex characters who often embody moral ambiguity. Prince Aemond Targaryen stands as a pillar of strength for the Greens, with his formidable dragon, Vhagar. While he presents a stern and stoic exterior, internally, he conceals his emotions to maintain an appearance of strength. However, he craves for motherly affection.

Ewan Mitchell says Aemond’s needs a bit of love

In a previous interview, Ewan Mitchell admitted Alicent is not a good mother. Aemond needs love and care, as he reiterated in a recent interview with Variety, “He needs a bit of love. He’s a broken boy, needs someone to fix him. Season 1, it was a rich show full of morally compromised gray characters. I wanted to present a character who, in those three episodes, that time in his life was just complete darkness.”

Aemond seeks motherly love in Vhagar and brothel madam

Mitchell went on to say it is a mother’s love specifically that he is looking for. He added, “Someone asked me the other day whether or not I thought Aemond had mommy issues, and I don’t know if he had mommy issues or rather he just want it to be loved by his mom a little bit more.

Growing up, he never really felt that unconditional love. He had to find surrogates elsewhere. He sort of found it in his dragon, Vhagar, this older she-dragon, and he’s also found it with the madam. But whether or not it’s enough, if it’s a worthy enough surrogate, is questionable.”
