Which 'Game of Thrones' Prophecies Have Come True And Which Are Yet To Happen?

As we near to the finale of the final season of 'Game of Thrones', we have seen a lot of prophecies seeing the light of the day, but these are the ones that are yet to happen.

There have been a lot of prophecies surrounding the characters of 'Game of Thrones' and at times, it seems like you don't even know what is going to happen next. The Game of Thrones universe was not built just in a matter of days. It was built with several thousand years worth of detailed history and he also plotted a lot of things out into the future using prophecy. As Martin said once, "Prophecy is a staple element in fantasy, but it's tricky… You want to play with the notion of prophecies coming true but in an unexpected way." Here are all the prophecies that came true and the ones that are yet to come true. 

1. Bran's Visions


Bran or now The Three-Eyed Raven had a lot of visions that came true. With the original Three-Eyed Raven, Bran saw his father, Ned Stark in the crypts at Winterfell. In real life, when he went down to the crypts, Maester Luwin informed him that his father has died. Recently, in season 4, he saw a dragon flying over King's Landing. In the latest episode, we saw Drogon flying over King's Landing, casting a similar shadow. 

2. Thoros of Myr


He is the Red Priest who is friends with Beric Dondarion and his group that call themselves 'Brotherhood Without Banner'. His prophecy states, "our champion will be reborn to wake dragons from stone and reforge the great sword Lightbringer that defeated the darkness those thousands of years ago." In his prophecy, it seemed for a while that he was describing Daenerys, but going by the looks of the last episode. It does not seem the case. This prophecy still remains unproven. 

3. Maggy the Frog


At the beginning of the fifth season, a flashback shows Cersei Lannister demanding to know her future from a woods witch known as Maggy the Frog. For her, there was both good and bad news in the store. She told Cersei that she would indeed become a Queen, until here comes another, younger and more beautiful, to cast you down and take all that you hold dear. Apart from that, Maggy also predicted the death of all her children. Maggy had also told Cersei, "And when your tears have drowned you. The Valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.” Valonqar means little brother in Valyrian. This automatically made Cersei think that it is Tyrion who will take her life. But, as we saw in the last episode, this prophecy never saw the light of the day. 

4. The Prince That Was Promised


This is probably one of the most long-standing theories. As the legend goes, it’s the legend of the Last Hero, who drove the White Walkers back during the last Long Night. After the battle of Winterfell, a lot of people thought that Arya Stark is the Prince who was promised as she managed to put an end to the Night King. Apart from that, Melisandre has also mentioned, "When the red star bleeds and the darkness gathers, Azor Ahai shall be born again amidst smoke and salt." One recent picture of Arya also emerged rising from the ashes, so she definitely fits the bill.
