That would just mean the Targaryen’s dragons burned up Gandalf during their conquest of Westeros.

Given the way prop houses reuse props and molds probably every “significant” sword in fantasy history is in that thing somewhere.

+ the Hyborian Age

Does that mean we should also start looking for Conan's 5-foot yataghan in there, too?

Considering that Once Upon a Time has the Wicked Witch of Oz as the sister of Regina, the Evil Queen, and Rumplestilskin's father as Pan, anything is possible in TV/Movieland.

If his sword ended up melted into the Iron Throne, he sure did!

As memory serves, I have...or at least had; have to go looking...a paperback (Ace?) that had a white walker on the cover illustration, which looked a lot more like a yeti.
