The Conqueror was the flagship of the Northern Alliance. It was amongst the many ships gathering at Drago's hideout. Drago was first seen onboard silently observing his Bewilderbeast as it rested underwater. After being captured, the Dragon Riders (and Eret) were taken on board the ship to meet Drago. Upon learning of the existence of Berk's dragons and another "Dragon Master", Drago accelerated his plans and ordered his ships to prepare to attack Valka's Mountain.
While traveling to Valka's Mountain, the Dragon Riders were brought to the ship's stern to jump into the frigid waters. With the help of Eret, the Riders managed to overpower their guards and hid inside the domes of Drago's Dragon Catcher traps stored onboard.
The Conqueror was later moored near the shoreline of Valka's Mountain when the Northern Alliance laid siege on the dragon sanctuary.
About a year after Drago's defeat, The Conqueror was seen leading the Warlords' armada to New Berk. After capturing Toothless and the female Light Fury, Grimmel brought them to The Conqueror, where he subsequently betrayed the Warlords and prepared to kill Toothless, thereby ending the Night Furies once and for all. Grimmel was thwarted due to the intervention of Hiccup and the Dragon Riders, who boarded The Conqueror and fought with the Warlords' forces. Early in the battle, the ship was set ablaze by two of Grimmel's Deathgrippers. The battle ended after Astrid took control of the ship's helm, causing the vessel to collide with another ship and sink.
Drago's armada consists of plenty of massive ships, but its flagship is The Conqueror, which is much larger than all the other vessels.
Unlike most Viking longships, this ship is more elevated and consists of three masts and four sails. The sails depict a Monstrous Nightmare head with a sword through its middle.
Other ships in his armada don other designs, such as a similar dragon head with arrows or catapulted rocks around it, or the same logo viewed from its side view. The Conqueror has three main segments, each lined next to each other. The bowsprit for each of the segments are dragon heads. The Conqueror has numerous anchors, which Drago hits with his bullhook to attract his Bewilderbeast from underwater.
There are plenty of dragon cages on his ship, all of which are controlled by a rotating gear mechanism and hold captive dragons that are muzzled and held fast by ropes. It also transports several of his traps too.
The Conqueror is run by a small crew, along with Drago and is guarded by numerous pontoons of smaller battleships and smaller supply ships.
