Rhaenyra and Daemon Targaryen have become two of the most beloved characters in The House of the Dragon. But what will his future be?
Many viewers are wondering what will happen to the love story between Rhaenyra and Daemon Targaryen in The House of the Dragon.. The romance between the two characters is complicated at the end of the first season of the HBO series. But we can already anticipate that the couple will continue to distance themselves throughout the Dance of the Dragons.
While the Targaryen uncle and niece began their marriage after a decade of falling in love, intermarriage and the birth of several children, Rhaenyra and Daemon seemed to be one of the few House of Dragon couples who were bound by both love and politics.. However, in the last episode of the first season, the Rogue Prince strangles his wife in the midst of his anger and her grief. This shows a completely different perspective of her romance.
Things will get complicated for the two Targaryens
Despite seeming like the most established couple in the House of the Dragon, Rhaenyra and Daemon’s marriage continues to take a turn for the worse in the Targaryen Civil War. If the accounts of the narrators in George RR Martin’s book Fire and Blood are accurate, then the Scoundrel Prince will cheat on his partner with two characters significant in history.
Also, even though the two are still married and ruling together, Daemon and Rhaenyra will spend much of the war apart.. Fire and Blood suggests that she doesn’t care much for her absence or flirtations with her. Although they remain the most prominent couple in the future of House of the Dragon, their romance reflects the increasingly gray nature of the characters’ morals. A perfect exponent.
What will happen during the Dance of Dragons in the future?
The unpredictable Daemon has always been a thrill seeker, as the character quickly becomes bored with what he perceives as monotony. So it is not surprising that he distances himself from Rhaenyra to find pleasure with women like Mysaria.. She was the first romantic interest of the Rogue Prince in The House of the Dragon. And now that she runs the most important spy network in King’s Landing, she will be important to the political strategy of “Los Negros”. As she works with Mysaria to get revenge on “The Greens” and discover her secrets, they will also become lovers again.
Fire and Blood also suggests that Daemon is having an affair with Nettles, a future House of Dragon character. Nettles is a 17-year-old bastard who claims the Sheepstealer dragon for “Los Negros”. Rhaenyra sends her husband and Nettles together to the Trident to find Aemond and Vhagar, and the couple are rumored to have begun an affair while at Maiden’s Pool.
Mysaria even tells Rhaenyra that Daemon has taken Nettles as a lover, to which the Queen of the House of Dragons angrily replies that her husband would not take a lowborn girl without dragon blood to his bed. Although another source denies his affair and claims that the Rogue Prince simply treated Nettles like a daughter, it is likely that the Targaryen was impressed by his bravery. Something similar to what happened with Rhaenyra.
