The Stallion who mounts the world might be Dany?

Recommended Posts

When Dany eats the stallions heart, the crone makes a proclamation that basically says all the khals will join together to make one giant khalassar and they will conquer all. It says that when she looked at Dany she was almost frightened. Is Dany that Stallion? The one who will mount the world? I am rereading book one and just caught this. Thoughts? And no comparison to the show please(sorry if that sounds rude it’s not meant to).

I think she meant the child. But, considering how events unfold, she was mistaken, thinking it was the child when in fact, it is Dany. She just misinterpreted what she "saw".

The "prince" that "rode" inside Dany might be Drogon. Look at this passage from GoT:

Quote

Finally the crone opened her eye and lifted her arms. “I have seen his face, and heard the thunder of his hooves,” she proclaimed in a thin, wavery voice.
“The thunder of his hooves!” the others chorused.
As swift as the wind he rides, and behind him his khalasar covers the earth, men without number, with arakhs shining in their hands like blades of razor grass. Fierce as a storm this prince will be. His enemies will tremble before him, and their wives will weep tears of blood and rend their flesh in grief. The bells in his hair will sing his coming, and the milk men in the stone tents will fear his name.” The old woman trembled and looked at Dany almost as if she were afraid. “The prince is riding, and he shall be the stallion who mounts the world.”
“The stallion who mounts the world!” the onlookers cried in echo, until the night rang to the sound of their voices.

The sound of Drogon's wings is said to be thunder-like. He is a dragon so he can ride "swift like the wind." His casts a massive shadow. He is of course fierce and makes even the most hardened warriors (like the Tattered Prince lot in ADwD) "tremble in fear." Drogon can, and most likely will, fly over Essos and Westeros, "mounting the world."

The crone might have seen this, but she may have said the prophesy in a manner that the Dothraki understand. They explain things in terms of horses and khalasars and whatnot (the stars are horses made of fire, and all). Upon a re-read, the descriptions can apply easily to Drogon as well. 

There's a question whether Drogon is a "boy" of course, given that dragons are gender neutral. But outside of old Valyria, no one uses gender neutral terms and power is always associated with masculine language. It's always "men" not people or humans. So that might explain the "he" aspect of it. 

Dany is the mother of Drogon as well as Rhaego, so it explains the prince riding inside her. 

It's also possible that Rhaego, had he lived, would have been the Stallion. Dany does see him in her fever dream. But his existence is wiped out entirely by the blood magic. The Stallion prophesy is really old. Either the intervention of blood magic somehow made it possible to eliminate a prophesy, or, the prophesy was never about Rhaego, but about Drogon and his/her rider Dany. From where the story is going, it looks very much like the latter. Dany, in one of her visions, sees herself flying overhead while armies trembled in fear below. That matches up with this Stallion prophesy. 

We know that Dany goes back to the crones and they bow before her by the lake. So they might see the dragon and "correct" the prophesy possibly.
