Things are heating up on Season 7 of Game of Thrones. The Red Woman or Melisandre recently met with Daenerys Targaryen and made her motives known. She wants the Lord of Light’s prophecy of The Prince That Was Promised to come true. This would be the savior, Azor Ahai, who pulls a flaming sword from the flames and fights off winter.
The dragon mother was suspicious of this prophecy at first, but Missandei makes it clear that this could be a prince or princess. Since the prophecy is so ambiguous it leaves it open to interpretation with the character and fans. But there is one theory that is going around that is pretty surprising.
So which one of these characters could be the prince or princess that was promised? Here is the theory and reasons why it’s possible and vice versa.
1. The Hound could be The Prince That Was Promised
Many might jump to the conclusion that Daenerys Targaryen or Jon Snow could fulfill this prophecy. They are some of the original main characters from the show. They also check off a lot of things on the list that describes the savior.
But there is a minor character that has been the subject of many theories lately — Sandor “The Hound” Clegane! A Reddit user, BeautifulMania came up with this theory and it has picked up steam. The warrior’s story has certainly steered more that way lately since he has been working closely with Beric Dondarrion and other followers of the Lord of Light.
But there is one moment in this season’s premiere, “Dragonstone” that sparked more people to believe this theory.
