A goatherd from Meereen is an unnamed minor character who appears in the fourth season. He is played by Philip Arditti.


Season 4

Along with his son, he is tending goats on a hill near Meereen. They witness Drogon scorch the fields where the goats are grazing, before snatching one away in his talons. The goatherd brings a sack of charred remains before Daenerys in her throne room atop the Great Pyramid of Meereen. She promises him he'll be repaid thrice the value of his lost livestock in compensation. Grateful for her generosity, he stumbles away backwards out of the throne room.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Daenerys hears cases from several shepherds and goatherds of their livestock being carried away by her dragons, all of whom are promised fair compensation for their losses. As the number of claims increase, some of them are false, so Daenerys decrees that claimants must present themselves at the Temple of the Graces and swear a holy oath before the gods of Ghis that their claims are genuine.
