New photos from the House of the Dragon set give us a clearer look at [redacted]’s sigil and more

New photos have surfaced from Cornwall where production for House of the Dragon has “allegedly” (lol, it definitely has) begun, giving us a clearer look at House [redacted]’s sigil and hinting at nautical shenanigans.

Twitter user @vv408vm (whom you can also follow on Instagram for ongoing coverage) recently tweeted several photos from Cornwall, one of which gives us a gloriously high-def view of House Velaryon’s sigil.

This essentially confirms strongly supports speculation that St. Michael’s Mount is going to serve as Driftmark, the island home of House Velaryon.

Other photos (@vv408vm doesn’t specify whether they were taken at St. Michael’s Mount or Holywell beach) show the transport and installation of a stone coffin bearing the effigy of a woman.

Whether this is the tomb of a recently deceased character or a long dead member of House Velaryon or Targaryen remains to be seen.

@vv408vm also noted that the wreckage of a ship is under construction and that a wooden rowboat was used in a shoot, which opens the floor to speculation as to when exactly these scenes take place in the timeline.

Off the top of my head, I can’t think of any singularly significant shipwrecks in Targaryen or Velaryon history, though of course Corlys Velaryon loses a nice chunk of his fleet during the Dance of the Dragons … uh, spoilers.

What do you think? Tell us below.

      Maybe Queen Aemma?

    2. Adrianacandle,

      That’s precisely what I was thinking but what would she be doing in Driftmark?

      The only Velaryon of importance would be Jaehaerys I’d mother, Alyssa Velaryon, right?

      It’s so exciting!!

    3. If you look at the photo where they’re carrying the coffin up the stairs, it seems that there is another seahorse carved near the place where her feet should be.

      So it has to be a Velaryon, either by birth or marriage. That would rule out Aemma Arryn, but Laena Valryon makes perfect sense.
