Betting On Who Will Sit The Iron Throne In House Of The Dragon

  • House of the Dragon has captivated viewers, and sportsbooks have odds on the show.
  • Aegon Targaryen has -135 odds to sit the Iron Throne at the end of season 1.
  • His sister Rhaenyra is next, with +225 odds to do so.

LAS VEGAS – The first episode of House of the Dragon released on Sunday, and with nine episodes to go, sportsbooks have odds on who will sit on the Iron Throne at the end of season 1.

House Of The Dragon – Odds To Sit On Iron Throne End Of Season 1

  • Aegon Targaryen -135
  • Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen +225
  • Prince Daemon Targaryen +300
  • Otto Hightower +800
  • Alicent Hightower +1000
  • Corlys Velaryon +1400

Remember that this story is based on in-world history that has already been written by George R.R. Martin, so some plot points are potentially predictable.

However, it is unclear to what degree the show will follow the established story and history, and that may cause issues in terms of how the show plays out.

For example, in Game of Thrones, Jaime Lannister goes to Dorne in season 5, but in the original books, an entirely separate character, Arys Oakheart, is the person who does this.

Something similar could happen here, wherein the showrunners take liberties with what is currently known about the story this show is based on.

That said, looking at what we know about the general events that occur in this time period in Westerosi history, it is possible for entertainment bettors to make some educated guesses.

Warning: Potential House Of The Dragon Spoilers Ahead!

Aegon Targaryen, -135

Aegon Targaryen, who has not even been introduced in the show, is the son of King Viserys I Targaryen, who is the reigning king at the time of the show.

He is a product of the union between Viserys I and Alicent Hightower – a union that the show took pains to set up in the first episode – after the death of Viserys’ first wife.

In Martin’s lore, Aegon is born shortly after Rhaenyra is declared the heir to the Iron Throne, and, by the time of Viserys’ death 23 years later, he challenges Rhaenyra for the succession.

Rhaenyra, away at Dragonstone, is unable to stop Aegon from being crowned king – an act that starts The Dance of the Dragons, the war that House of the Dragon will chronicle.

It makes sense that this would happen early in the show’s run, similar to how the first season of Game of Thrones was about political intrigue, but later seasons were about open warfare.

Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen +225

Rhaenyra does not claim the throne until a year after Aegon, making it unlikely that Rhaenyra is the legitimate answer to this question unless the show moves very quickly.

However, she is one of the two characters on this list who actually does sit the Iron Throne in the lore, along with Aegon.

If this does happen, it will be due to the showrunners taking liberties with the history, which is entirely possible, but less likely.

Prince Daemon Targaryen +300

Daemon Targaryen was introduced to the show sitting on the Iron Throne – a throne that belongs to his brother, Viserys.

In the current lore, he continues his current trajectory by conquering the Stepstones, although he gives up his crown to his brother, Viserys.

After this, he ends up marrying his niece, Rhaenyra Targaryen, and supporting her claim to the Iron Throne.

He never ends up sitting on the Iron Throne in the lore, but sports betting fans should remember that he may in the show, given this foreshadowing.
