A Dragon Horn

A dragon horn is a sorcerous horn that is used to control dragons.


Dragon horns originate from Old Valyria, prior to the Doom. The dragonlords of old sounded such horns, before the Doom devoured them. [1] [2]

It is not known if one horn can control more that one dragon, or how many dragons one horn can control. Euron Greyjoy is confident he can control more than one dragon with Dragonbinder but he has yet to be proven correct.

It has not been mentioned how exactly the Targaryens controlled their dragons. The dragon skulls still remain in the Red Keep but no mention of dragon horns in Westeros has been made.
