"The Prince That Was Promised",[1] also known as the Son of Fire and Warrior of Light,[2] is a mythic figure in the religion of the Lord of Light. According to prophecy, the Prince That Was Promised would be reborn "amidst salt and smoke"[3] and pull a flaming sword from the flames, Lightbringer, to combat the coming darkness.[4]

According to Lady Melisandre, priestess of the Lord of Light, Stannis Baratheon is the prophesied Prince.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Prince That Was Promised is implied to be the reincarnation of a hero known as Azor Ahai. He was a legendary warrior who rose up and defeated the Others - the books' name for the White Walkers - during the Long Night. He wielded a sword of fire, called Lightbringer. There is some debate amongst fans as to the interchangeability of "Azor Ahai" and "The Prince That Was Promised". It seems that Azor Ahai is the name given to the legendary figure, while the Prince That Was Promised is more properly his reincarnation. However, the books do not in fact make explicit the connection between the stories of Azor Ahai and the prophecies  of the Prince That Was Promised.
