The largest and oldest dragon of its day, Vhagar, is a living weapon large enough to swallow smaller dragons whole. Interestingly, though, despite it being said several times in the TV series, fans want to know whether Vhagar is a girl or a boy. Well, don’t say we never do anything for you; here’s the answer you seek.
Is Vhagar a girl?
Yes, Vhagar is a she-dragon, but not just any old she-dragon. She’s the greatest she-dragon in the history of Westeros. You see, Vhagar, like Balerion and Meraxes, was one of the dragons used by Aegon the Conqueror and his sister-wives to conquer the individual fiefdoms of Westeros and forge them into the Seven Kingdoms we know and love.
