Was Ser Dunk really a knight? - Dunk and Egg
This 'Game of Thrones' Finale Easter Egg May Hint at a 'Dunk & Egg' Spinoff
By the time Tormund started applauding and Tyrion started toasting and Brienne started smiling — Brienne! Of Tarth! Of course. But it was the dialogue that truly drove the momentousness of the scene home to me, because it was dialogue I recognized as a reader of George R. A bit about the source material, not that it matters that much.

This Easter egg is almost impossible to catch, but it would be oh so great if true.
Few authors have as much power to draw you in with fun characters and thrilling adventures—and then crush your spirit utterly—as George R. But the latest way that Martin managed to make me lose all hope for humanity was especially sneaky.
T he Game of Thrones series finale took up some emotional real estate close to the very end to focus on the noble deeds of dead knights like Jaime Lannister, but hidden among nods to heroes like Barristan Selmy and Arthur Dayne is one entry that Brienne reads about her own ancestor: Ser Duncan the Tall. Game of Thrones author George R. He probably also provided the genetics needed to make Brienne so tall and badass, making this a subtle act of fan service connecting the fan-favorite fighter with her tall ancestor. But it also serves as a reminder that Game of Thrones author George R. Martin has clamored for a prequel series about Duncan for years now. Tales of Dunk and Egg is a series of novellas written by Martin that explores their adventures traveling Westeros as commoners performing heroic deeds.
Though Egg is a boy at the start of the series he will eventually grow up to become King Aegon V, or "Aegon the Unlikely". The Tales of Dunk and Egg may potentially be made into a live-action project which will be a prequel to the main Game of Thrones TV series. Thus far, however, nothing has been confirmed. The realm is still recovering from the First Blackfyre Rebellion thirteen years before, a great civil war that tore the Seven Kingdoms in half. Daeron II's bastard half-brother Daemon Blackfyre had tried to seize the throne in the rebellion, but was killed in the final battle of the war. Several of his sons survived by fleeing into exile, and across the Narrow Sea , House Blackfyre is continually plotting all manner of intrigues against the main branch of the Targaryen dynasty , hoping to gain support for new rebellions.
