Welcome back for another Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire video. Today I am talking about the Night King’s lineage. Ever since the Night King took control of Viserion, people have been wondering if he has the blood of Old Valyria, or the blood of the dragon. Some people would even say the Night King is the true Song of Ice and Fire, but I disagree. Like I have said many times before, I think the Night King comes from the north, and more specifically, House Stark. We saw the Children of the Forest create the Night King, and they even told us why they did this. Based on the timeline, the Night King should have been created around the Age of Heroes, which was roughly 10,000 to 8,000 years ago. The dragons weren’t discovered until 5,000 years ago, which was several thousand years after the Long Night. Daenerys had to form a special bond with her dragons in order to ride one, but the Night King was able to bypass that with his magic. Once Viserion was taken out of the sky, the magic that made him a normal fire breathing dragon ceased to exist. Viserion is now operating under the Night King’s command, which is basically a high level of warging, like we’ve seen with Bran Stark. With this type of power and magic, the Night King does not need the blood of the dragon to ride one, but this is just my opinion. Let me know how you feel about this idea. Leave some comments or questions down below. Thank you for watching the video!
