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


Dragon horns originated from the Valyrian Freehold. The dragonlords of old sounded such horns, before the Doom of Valyria devoured them.[1][2]

According to Valyrian legend, the hellhorns brought death and destruction down on all those who heard their sound.[3]
