We know that the Targaryens have two Valyrian Steel Blades. And asoiaf wiki entry on Valyrian Steel lists the two blades under those who have unknown fates. Is there any canon where we could at least infer what happened to those two blades? Specifically, when was the last time these blades were seen in the canon, worldbook?

EDIT: Also, do we have reason to believe that there would be a momentous event that at least one of them will be found and the one who wields it will play a big badass role in the fight agains the Others?

    I'd assume if the ASoIaF wiki states their fates are unknown, that there is no hint in the canon about their current whereabouts :)

    IMHO this should be closed. I see no point in repeating what it says on awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Blackfyre and awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Dark_Sister ; anything else is unsubstantiated guesswork.

    @BCdotWEB I disagree. It is a highly interesting topic, and GRRM is known for leaving hints. It might even be that TWOW or the next Dunk & Egg novel gives some clue or proof.

    @TLP: That sounds like you're stretching things to the point they break (and then some), with the R+L=J comment.

    @BCdotWEB This is neither a chatty, nor an open-ended question. The wiki entries only contain what is known, so it is fair to assume that hidden clues might still be available.

1 Answer 1


The most probable answer is that Blackfyre is with the Golden Company (given its roots with Aegor "Bittersteel" Rivers).

Dark Sister is either at Summerhall (may have been confiscated from Brynden "Bloodraven" Rivers when he was banished) or be somewhere at The Wall or with Bloodraven himself.

The slightly disappointing but very realistic answer would be that they are simply lost or hidden and have become irrelevant to the story.
