Silverwing was the dragon of Queen Alysanne Targaryen when she visited the Wall 200 years ago.[1][2] [3] Silverwing later fought in the civil war called the Dance of the Dragons.


Silverwing’s appearance has not been mentioned. Samwell Tarly wonders if Silverwing may have left an egg at the Wall so it may have been a female but Sam does not mention the dragon's gender. [3]

  • Bran mentions Silverwing to the Reeds when they arrive at Queenscrown explaining to them that Queen Alysanne stopped at Queenscrown on her the way to visit the Wall. [4]
  • Jon Snow tells Ygritte of Queen Alysanne’s visit to the Wall many years ago. When the queen was visiting Winterfell with her husband she grew bored, so she mounted her dragon Silverwing and flew north to see the Wall, stopping at Queenscrown village on the way. [5]
  • While riding in the chain winch at the Wall Samwell Tarly ponders that there were dragons at the Wall two hundred years ago.

Sam wonders to himself, could Silverwing have left an egg behind? [3]
