  • Why am I saying this ? Just think about it.Dragons are so huge and powerful and they can overwhelm Uther's army in a matter of days.How the hell also he killed every dragon ? That would take him over 10.ooo years to do that.Also there are so many dragons and dragon species around the world and all of them would had burnt Uther in no time.But NOPE.They made up some random stuff without explaination.I mean seriously are they expecting us to believe that ? This is also really stupid.

    My theory is that Uther just wanted to play it brave to his people and he had set up this goal to murder every dragon.Soon he realized he was all wrong because he saw his army getting burned,butchered,eaten,destroyed and slaughtered by the dragons.Uther lost many men and the dragons were overwhelming his forces.Uther returned to Camelot in two weeks with only five teams of knights.The rest of the knights were killed by the dragons.Uther had kept a promise to his people to kill all the dragons but he failed so he lied to them that he killed every dragon in existance.Also to make himself even more famous he stole an egg from a dragon nest and he raised the young dragon inside the cave beneath Camelot.That dragon was Kilgharrah.Uther was brainwashing him that he killed all his kind and Kilgharrah with sadness and fear believed Uther's lies and he made him think that he's the last remaining dragon on Earth which is totally wrong and dragons still inhabit the world but they don't know that Uther has trapped a dragon in his kingdom

    • Hi MongerCrow, welcome to the Merlin Wikia.

      Interesting ideas. I agree that Uther wiping out all dragons is actually quite unlikely, even with the help of all dragonlords. We dont know how many dragons existed in Albion but I suppose they were more than just five or ten.  In case there were indeed only a few dragons inhabiting Albion, there is still the question how Uther managed to make the dragonlords help him, for I doubt that most of them were on Uther's side.

      Another question is how he managed to capture Kilgharrah in the first place. Since he was chained up with a magical chain, Uther must have somehow used magic while Kilgharrah was incapable to defend himself. How in the world could this have happened? I doubt that Balinor demanded Kilgharrah to go into the cave and let himself being chained up by some sorcerer who surprisingly worked for Uther...

      However, we will never know whether or not Uther just claimed to have defeated the dragons. Personally, I doubt that it was a lie since we never saw another dragon up until Aithusa was hatched.

    • I wonder how the other dragons compared to the "Great" Dragon. The only other example of a dragon we have is Aithusa, who was very young and crippled. If the others were much smaller and weaker, maybe Camelot's army was able to take them out.

      As for Kilgharrah, I wonder what Balinor ordered him to do. If, for example, he believed that Uther was serious about peace and wanted to make sure that Kilgharrah didn't destroy any hope for a peaceful resolution, he might have commanded him not to harm Uther or his people. In theory, that would mean that, if Balinor was unable to rescind his order, ie. if he was knocked out, Kilgharrah would be unable to defend himself when Uther and his men attacked him but it wouldn't explain why he didn't fly away. I can't see Balinor ordering Kilgharrah to allow himself to be imprisoned, even if his own life was threatened.

      Short of there being a second Dragonlord who ordered Kilgharrah into imprisonment once Balinor had him in Camelot, I can't see how Uther managed to get a huge dragon to go down to the cavern and be chained up, especially as the chains themselves would have to have been magical and magic used to bind Kilgharrah with them.

      To be honest, I'd say that little, if any thought was given to how Uther imprisoned Kilgharrah, and one of the writers pulled the Dragonlord thing out of their backside so that they could (a) have Kilgharrah go on a rampage but stopped within an episode, and (b) give Merlin an extra power.

    • Btw also except Albion other dragons and more of their species possibly inhabit and other countries over the world and there are so many species (Hydras,Drakes,Asian ones,Wyverns (Not the ones in the series.I mean the normal ones),Europeans etc.) which are also even more powerful than Kilgharrah (Btw I think Kilgharrah is possibly a european dragon).Also is pretty much annoying that Kilgharrah is the "Great Dragon" because there are also possibly dragons around the world more powerful and stronger than him

      Maybe they were already a dying race, a hairbreadth from extinction, with Kilgharrah as one of very few healthy ones - if not the only healthy one - while Aithusa was the last egg.

    • No.I don't accept that all dragons are dead.I still believe that dragons still inhabit the world no matter what everyone says.Either way they are an incredibly strong race

      Probably, but I think the show wanted us to believe that Uther indeed wiped out the entire race, except for Aithusa and Kilgharrah. I would have found it very interesting if this all had only been a lie or even only a misconcpetion because it would make it all less cruel and at the same time show that Uther either didn't have the nerve to kill almost an entire race or that a single person is incapable of eradicaing a race.

      However, I agree with you, Monger and believe that it referred to Albion's dragons only. The way Albion was presented to us, it often seemed as if it was the world when it actually was only a small part of it.
