30 Sec Answer: We do not know where Drogon took Daenerys Targaryen, though there are several theories about what happened.
Where did Drogon Take Daenerys?
Since the finale of HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones aired in 2019, one of the biggest questions has been what happened to Daenerys Targaryen after her death at the hands of her lover-nephew Jon Snow. As viewers witnessed, moments after Daenerys’ death, her dragon, Drogon, roared with grief and flew off into the sunset with his mother’s body still clutched tightly in his claws.
So, where did Drogon take Daenerys? Let’s explore this mystery further!
What Did We See on Screen?
As we discussed, viewers were left with a mysterious cliffhanger as they watched Drogon fly away with Daenerys’ corpse. After being denied the ability to revive his mother through fire—thanks to a cleverly placed Dragonglass weapon by Jon Snow—Drogon seemed determined to protect her body. Taking matters into his own hands (or talons), he carried her off beyond our view. This is all we got from the show itself; any speculation or theories about where Drogon took Daenerys must come from other sources.
What Can We Learn From Other Sources?
We can learn quite a bit from sources outside the show, both official and fan-created. While none of these have been officially confirmed by anyone associated with the show itself, let’s look at some popular theories about what could have happened to Daenerys and Drogon post-death.
Theory 1: Drogon Flew South Towards Essos
Many fans believe that Drogon flew south towards Essos, most likely aiming for Vaes Tolorro—the same city where Khal Drogo and their son Rhaego were buried many seasons ago. It makes sense that if given the choice between Westeros and Essos, Drogon would opt for the latter as it held more significance for him and his mother than Westeros ever did. This theory also explains why we never saw them return after flying away—they simply kept going until they reached their destination.
Theory 2: They Flew North Beyond The Wall
Other fans theorize that Drogon was headed north beyond The Wall when he left King’s Landing with Daenerys’ corpse in tow. He may have taken her there either out of nostalgia for their time together past The Wall during season seven or because he believed that it was the best place to protect her remains from those who might want to harm them in Westeros. If true, then they may never be seen again by anyone but Wildlings and whatever creatures live beyond The Wall in George R.R Martin’s world.
Theory 3: They Were Both Killed By White Walkers
This theory isn’t quite as optimistic as the others, but it does provide an answer to our original question: Where did Drogon take Daenerys? In this scenario, viewers believe that once Drogon crossed over The Wall with Daenerys’ body, he was attacked by White Walkers and killed alongside her before they could reach safety. Though dark, this theory would explain why we never heard from them again or saw any evidence of where they went post-finale.
Was Any Official Word Ever Released About Where They Went?
Unfortunately no official word was ever released regarding what happened to either Daenerys or Drogon after she died and he flew away with her body in hand. Even during recent interviews conducted with actors Emilia Clarke (Daenery) and Kit Harrington (Jon Snow), neither actor gave any hints as to what became of them after they disappeared from our screens forever back in 2019. So while there is plenty of speculation out there surrounding this mystery, nothing has been definitively proven yet so we must keep speculating until such a time arises!
So ultimately where did Drogon take Daenerys? Well while we may never know exactly what happened to them both following her death at Jon Snow’s hands—as neither actor nor author has shed any light on this subject yet—we can make some educated guesses based on what we know about their characters and their respective stories up until that point in time. However only time will tell if any of these theories prove correct or if another explanation arises sometime down the line!
