Did the Mad King point to the White Walkers when he said “burn them all”? 🥇



It really depends on what fan theories you tend to listen to and if you read the book series. But the most often common answer to this question is no. This particular action of Aerys Targaryen was just another part of his madness that has been plaguing him for many years. He did not go mad because of some visions of the future but as a result of his genetic history and other traumatic instances. It should also be noted that he shouted “Burn them all!” right before his death in relation to Lannisters because he had an unhealthy obsession with wildfire and wanted to blow up the capital.

It’s easy!
