Buy Game of Thrones Merchandise


George R.R. Martin, the creator of Game of Thrones universe, almost didn’t include the dragons in his novels. Speaking to Meduza, Martin revealed that during the early stages of writing A Song of Ice & Fire books, he considered ‘not having the dragons’ but decided otherwise:

“I did consider in the very early stages not having the dragons in there. I wanted the Targaryen’s symbol to be the dragons, but I did play with the notion that maybe it was like a psionic power, that it was pyrokinesis — that they could conjure up flames with their minds. I went back and forth. My friend and fellow fantasy writer Phyllis Eisenstein actually was the one who convinced me to put the dragons in, and I dedicated the third book to her. And I think it was the right call.”
