As stated during Game of Thrones season 1:

The only thing left of the race are petrified dragon eggs

There is a possibility of more eggs existing. Why hasn't Daenerys tasked other to search for more dragon eggs?

    Posting as a comment as I don't feel I have enough to answer this question, and I'm not sure the question really belongs here. I believe the reason is that Daenerys simply isn't a greedy person. The only thing she wants is the throne, as she believes that it belongs to her, but she's really an empathic and generous person, so it's not really in her nature to greed for more than what she's already got. Her three dragons are also like children to her, and one doesn't really just go out and look for new ones.

1 Answer 1


Because the night her dragons hatched was magic...

The birth of Dany's dragons was unique, magical, wonderous, a miracle. She is called The Unburnt because she walked into the flames and lived.

Dragons have been always been associated with magic. It said that magic died when the dragons did. Hence it would take magic to bring them back.

The night Daenrys lights the funeral pyre for Khal Drogo is the same night the "Bleeding Star" appears. Without the right magical conditions, trying to find dragon eggs so that you can hatch them is a fools errand as many of the Targaryens proved over the years...

For more background (from the books) on the magic it took to hatch the eggs you can see this answer on SFF. So knowing the high price it takes to hatch the eggs, there is no need to find more as she is not willing to pay that price again.

    So your answer is basically that she doesn't think it's worth the time? Better things to do? Commented Aug 18, 2017 at 16:54

    @TheFamousDirector No, his answer is basically that Without the right magical conditions, trying to hatch a dragon's egg is a fools errand. Kind of unfair of you to just disregard his entire answer like that, merely because it doesn't satisfy you personally. Commented Aug 18, 2017 at 17:00

    @GhotiandChips How are my questions and his answer that different? I am just asking for clarification. Commented Aug 18, 2017 at 17:11

    It is not explicit as "thou shalt use your husband corpse to hatch thy egg", but it is clear that hatching egg is difficult and not without risk (i am looking at you summerhall). Plus, the funeral pyre (and the fact that she survive) is clearly linked to magic

    If she's not going to hatch them, why would she want to find them?
