Harkon suddenly died from unknown causes. The maester announced that Harkon died from an old age. However, his son, Garth, later revealed that he had poisoned his father with the Tears of Lys, a deadly and costly poison that can simulate fever and almost never leaves a trace of a murder. Garth's motives of killing his father were unknown, as he was killed himself before he could explain anything properly.


Jaran Dragen: "You give him no credit and yet he tries to do your will. He loves you, Father. "
Harkon Dragen: "Do not trouble me with Garth. I know his uses and they are few. "
