This page is about the denizen of King's Landing. For the Vale mountain clansman, see: Ulf (Moon Brother)

"A dragonseed must watch his own neck, when he has no white-cloaked guardsmen to do it for him."
―Ulf[src]

Ulf is a resident of King's Landing during the Dance of the Dragons. He claims to be the bastard son of Prince Baelon Targaryen, and the half-brother of the late King Viserys I Targaryen and Prince Daemon Targaryen.[3]

Biography[]

Background[]

Ulf is known as a sot and raconteur among the people of King's Landing.[1] He calls himself a dragonseed and claims to be a bastard son of Prince Baelon the Brave. He supports Rhaenyra Targaryen's claim to the Iron Throne and Jacaerys Velaryon as her rightful heir.[3]

House of the Dragon: Season 2[]

While walking the streets of King's Landing, Ulf steals a potato from another man's basket. He then sees the ratcatchers of the Red Keep who have been hanged on the orders of King Aegon II.[2]

2x3 Ulf Still

Ulf regales his companions with tales of his alleged Targaryen heritage.

Ulf visits a tavern in King's Landing as he reveals his claim as the son of Baelon the Brave to some of his friends. When Aegon II arrives at the tavern, Ulf is the first to herald the former's arrival.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

On December 2, 2023, HBO announced that Tom Bennett had been cast in the role of Ulf for House of the Dragon: Season 2.[4] His character description reads as follows:

"A denizen of Kings Landing known as a sot and raconteur among the smallfolk."[1]

In the books[]

In Fire & Blood, Ulf White, also known as Ulf the White and Ulf the Sot, was a man-at-arms in the garrison of Dragonstone. He had pale white hair and was known to be a heavy drinker. No information about his parentage - real or alleged - was given. While it was not impossible for him to be the actual bastard of a Targaryen prince (although his age is never specified), many of the dragonseeds on Dragonstone and Driftmark were actually descendants of other dragonseeds, and not the direct offspring of House Targaryen. For example, Silver Denys claimed to be a descendant of King Maegor I's bastard son.
