Stannis pulls Lightbringer from the burning effigy.

"Stannis Baratheon, Warrior of Light... your sword awaits you."

Lightbringer is the sword of Stannis Baratheon. At the behest of Melisandre, he pulls it out of the fire created by burning statues of the Seven.

According to prophecy, Lightbringer would be pulled from fire by the Lord's Chosen, the Prince That Was Promised, champion of the Lord of Light.

​In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Lightbringer is a sword of legend, forged and wielded by Azor Ahai, chosen by the Lord of Light to fight the darkness. The sword was said to glow and radiate heat, burning whoever touches it.

As in the TV series, Melisandre enchants Stannis's sword and dubs it Lightbringer, as she believes him to be Azor Ahai reborn. However, Melisandre is apparently unable to get the sword to radiate heat, and it only gives off bright light.

Thus there is a discrepancy between the "Lightbringer" of legend, and Stannis's sword "Lightbringer", named after the original.
