House Of The Dragon Character Gets Roasted On Twitter—It's Hilarious

House Of The Dragon Character Gets Roasted On Twitter—It’s Hilarious

In general, it felt like fans had just been biding their time until they could roast Aegon on social media, and they really went for it. One user, @moreybnett, even made an unflattering comparison to Aegon’s late nephew Lucerys Velaryon (Elliot Grihault), the son of Aegon’s royal rival Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy), who was killed in Season 1: “lucerys being a better valyrian speaker than both aegon and aemond combined at only 14 is crazy.”

@leylanocontext made yet another negative comparison, this time to Kieran Culkin’s chaos goblin Roman Roy from another hit HBO series “Succession,” saying, “aegon on the throne is kinda like if roman roy had won the succession.”

@PoorQuentyn just thought the whole thing was really funny, writing, “Aegon failing at Valyrian might honestly be the funniest joke in either of these shows” (presumably meaning both “House of the Dragon” and “Game of Thrones”).

@nyraslore noticed a small detail that really sells Aegon’s poor Valyrian skills from the Battle at Rook’s Roost that takes place at the episode’s climax, writing, “i really liked the detail of everyone speaking to their dragons in high valyrian except for aegon.”

Perhaps it was @ManuclearBomb, though, who provided the sharpest analysis. “What’s especially fun about Aemond’s High Valyrian is not just that Aegon can barely form a cogent response, but check out Aemond’s word choices: ‘sobriquet,’ ‘imbecilic lickspittle,’ probably not commonly taught words, Aemond studied deep in the dictionary to show up his bro,” they wrote.
