Warning: the following lines contain spoilers from House of the Dragon episode 6.

Played by Australian actor Ryan Corr, Harwin Strong is also known as Breakbones, as he is considered by many to be the strongest man in Westeros. His presence and development in House of the Dragon is giving a lot to talk about, especially in terms of the various theories that have been formed about him.

In the series' sixth episode, this character became the center of attention. The reason? The fact that one of the secrets that some of us already knew thanks to George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire has finally been revealed: Harwing Strong is no other than the biological father of the first three children of Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen. That is, he is the father of Jacaerys, Lucerys and Joffrey Velaryon.

As a result of the revelation, it is clear that Harwin Strong will, if anything, take on a greater role in what is to come. Up to 4 more episodes will arrive in the upcoming days and will complete the first season of House of the Dragon, the prequel series to Game of Thrones on HBO Max.
