Ancestral Dragon Eggs: The Hidden Connection Between House of the Dragon and Game of Thrones

Yes, those were the Dragon Mother's eggs in the latest House of the Dragon episode. Anyone familiar with Fire and Blood and the A Song of Ice and Fire series knows that the two narratives are separated by about two centuries of history. However, this separation doesn't prevent occasional narrative threads from crossing over, as demonstrated in the most recent episode of House of the Dragon.

Mashable has verified that the dragon eggs given by Emma D'Arcy's Rhaenyra Targaryen to Phoebe Campbell's Rhaena for safekeeping in Pentos are the same eggs that will ultimately end up with Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen, the Dragon Mother.

This serves as a prime example of how House of the Dragon takes certain creative liberties with George R.R. Martin's Fire and Blood. In the book, the eggs are implied to have made their way to Essos before the Dance of Dragons began, courtesy of a lover of a former Princess Rhaena who lived long before the events of the series.
