The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring, two much-awaited volumes by George R.R. Martin, have been on the shelves for years. As time passes, rumors and theories have grown, including the potential that Martin may eventually provide an explanation for Aegon the Conqueror’s prophetic visions. The same is suggested by a previous interview with the Game of Thrones author.

Aegon’s dream will be discussed more in upcoming A Song of Ice and Fire books

Aegon’s prophetic dream has been a recurring topic amongst book lovers as well as fans of the original series. It saw its return in the Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon. Martin once told Vanity Fair, “I don’t want to give too much away, because some of this is going to be in the later books, but this is 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. There was no sell-by date on that prophecy. That’s the issue.”

Would the Targaryens be better prepared if the civil war never happened?

Martin further pondered if Westeros would’ve been better protected if the events of House of the Dragon never occurred:

“The Targaryens that know about it are all thinking, Okay, this is going to happen in my lifetime, I have to be prepared! Or, It’s going to happen in my son’s lifetime. Nobody said it’s going to happen 200 years from now. If the Dance of the Dragons had not happened, what would’ve happened to the next generation? What would’ve happened in the generation after that? Yeah, there’s a lot to be unwound there.”
