Who Is the Genuine Dad of Rhaenyra Targaryen’s Kid in ‘Home of the Dragon’?

Something is rotten in the city of King’s Landing.

The 6th episode of HBO’s Home of the Dragon raises suspicions about the family of Princess Rhaenyra’s 3 boys—Jacaerys, Lucerys, and Joffrey. Though Rhaenyra is wed to Laenor Velaryon, all 3 of the young princes have brown hair, rather of the signature platinum locks that the Targaryens and Velaryons are understood for.

Here, we discuss what to understand about her kids’ family tree.

So, who is the genuine dad of Rhaenyra’s kids?

In the program and in George RR Martin’s Fire and Blood unique, it is greatly suggested that Ser Harwin Strong, a knight and the captain of the City’s Watch, is the real dad of Jacaerys, Lucerys, and Joffrey. Harwin, who we initially get a peek of in Episode 3, bears the very same curly, dark brown locks that all Rhaenyra’s kids have.

The program likewise makes a point of subtly portraying Harwin and Rhaenyra’s love, with their sticking around appearances and softened gazes towards each other. Harwin’s strong protectiveness over Jacaerys and Lucerys throughout their sword training with Ser Criston Cole—and Harwin’s pounding of Criston after he teases that the princes are his boys—likewise suggests that Harwin himself understands that they share his blood.

Does everybody understand that Harwin is the dad?

The illegitimacy of Rhaenyra’s boys appears to be an open trick in the Red Keep. King Viserys, Rhaenyra’s dad, has actually disregarded to the family tree of his grand sons. When Queen Alicent presses him on the matter, Viserys merely chalks up the kids’s physical variations to the spontaneity and unpredictability of nature. Naturally, the remainder of the court has actually taken after Viserys. Even Laenor, Rhaenyra’s other half, tips that he understands the princes are not biologically his kids in Episode 6.

Regardless of the seeming approval of the kids’s real moms and dads, whispers in the Red Keep heighten following Harwin’s battle with Criston, the latter of whom teased the previous about his secret fathership. As a result, completion of Episode 6 sees Rhaenyra and Laenor leaving the city for Dragonstone in order to secure her boys.

Will Harwin return for future episodes?

It’s not likely. By the end of Episode 6, Queen Alicent’s political ally, Larys Strong, works with bad guys to set Harrenhal on fire. Harwin and his dad, Lyonel Strong, both pass away in the blaze.

Still, his tradition might yet continue. Episode 6 likewise reveals Rhaenyra’s oldest child, Jacaerys, fixing up with the reality that his paternal family lies with Home Strong instead of Home Velaryon.
