- "Blessed by the Drowned God, the Grey King fought and slew Nagga the great Sea Dragon and took her fire for his own."
- ―Theon Greyjoy
In the booksEdit
It has never been established that "sea dragons" were ever real creatures. In a world where dragons once stalked the skies, there may be some kernel of truth behind the legends, which were later exaggerated to make Nagga big enough to drown entire islands. On the other hand, "Nagga's Bones", the ruins of the Grey King's old hall, still exist and were used as the site where kingsmoots were held to elect the new King of the Iron Islands (before the kingship became hereditary). Descriptions of Nagga's Bones are vague: according to legend it was made using the massive bones of Nagga as pillars, but the narration doesn't make it clear if these are just pillars of rock that resemble bones, or if "Nagga's Bones" actually are the remaining fossilized bones of some immense animal. Damphair refers to Nagga as the first sea dragon, and that the Drowned God turned her bones to stone.
Real-life connection Edit
When spelled with a single "g", naga refers to a race of serpentine creatures from the Indian sub-continent. Appearing in both Hindu and Buddhist tradition, nagas are associated with both water (similar to Nagga) and the Underworld.
