The eternal waters referred to on this episode of House of the Dragon are described as “the dominion of the Merling King.” But who is the Merling King? Well, he’s one of the gods of the sea in the writings of George R.R. Martin, the creator of Game of Thrones and all of the happenings in Westeros. The Driftwood Throne that appears in this episode was supposedly gifted from the Merling King.
