    People Are OBSESSED With Daemon Targaryen On "House Of The Dragon"

    Despite his controversial personality, it turns out House of the Dragon fans are loving Daemon and are already having a ball making jokes about how ~wicked~ and chaotic he is.

    If you tuned in for the premiere of House of the Dragon — aka the biggest show of 2022 — this weekend, then Daemon Targaryen probably needs no introduction to your world.

    For a refresher, Daemon is the younger brother of current Westeros ruler, King Viserys I Targaryen. He's also the uncle of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen who, by the end of the first episode, has been named heir to Viserys's throne.

    Given that Daemon was technically next in line to the throne and therefore the ~rightful~ heir (at least in his mind), you can imagine he's, well, kind of pissed off.

    Of course, even before all this family drama, we learned Daemon was something of a loose cannon within the Targaryen family already.

    He's hot-tempered, ambitious, and quite aggressively violent by nature.

    But what really did him in was the whole, ahem, "Heir for a day," thing. 👀

    Despite his controversial personality, it turns out House of the Dragon fans are KIIIIIINDA loving Daemon and are already having a BALL making jokes about how ~wicked~ and chaotic he is...
