Sea Dragon Tower is a tower at Dragonstone.

Layout

Sea Dragon Tower is shaped like a dragon calmly gazing across the water.[1] The tower has apartments for nobles.[2][3]

The maester's chambers are located high atop Sea Dragon Tower.[1] The room has a long wooden table.[1] Steep iron steps lead up to the rookery, and beneath the rookery stair is a workroom with the maester's potions.[4] Gargoyles of a hellhound and a wyvern are found at the balcony outside the chamber.[4]

The turnpike stairs of the tower are narrow and twisting.[4][1] Noble prisoners can be held comfortably in Sea Dragon Tower's cells.[5] The tower also has a cellar.[6]

History

Dowager Queen Visenya Targaryen kept her chambers in Sea Dragon Tower during the reign of her nephew, King Aenys I Targaryen. [2]

Androw Farman killed Maester Anselm in the tower's rookery.[7]

After three days of labor in her apartments in Sea Dragon Tower, Rhaenyra Targaryen gave birth to the stillborn Visenya.[3] After King Aegon II Targaryen fed Rhaenyra to Sunfyre during the Dance of the Dragons, her ladies-in-waiting were confined to the tower's cells to await ransom.[5]

Recent Events

Pylos teaches Lord Davos Seaworth how to read in the maester's chambers. On one occasion, Davos reads a letter from Maester Aemon warning about wildling threats to the Night's Watch.[1]

While Pylos is teaching sums to Edric Storm, Davos arrives at Sea Dragon Tower with Ser Rolland Storm, Ser Gerald Gower, Ser Andrew Estermont, Ser Triston of Tally Hill, and Lewys the Fishwife. The king's men take Edric from Dragonstone so that he cannot be given to Melisandre's fires.[6]

Quotes

Castles are not friendly places for the frail, Cressen was reminded as he descended the turnpike stairs of Sea Dragon Tower.[4]

—thoughts of Cressen

The towers were dragons hunched above the walls or poised for flight; the Windwyrm seemed to scream defiance, while Sea Dragon Tower gazed serenely out across the waves.[1]

—thoughts of Davos Seaworth
