i've tried respwaning the ancient dragon soul and it didn't work by burning an ascetic in either the place unbeknownst or dragon shrine, for some reason I can't edit this page. playing on pc version
The spider killed the dragon that's why the ancient dragon is there
Just gonna take a guess and say you don't get another.
Yea wrong place man, like guest said it's in the frejas room to access the dragon memory
?? You're ascending the wrong bonfires.. It's likely Freja's Bonfire In Lower Brightstone Cove, re-access the Dragon Memory nd reattain soul.
it does not respawn. I have used a ascetic on the lower bonfire and killed freja went back to the memory and nothing, nothing, nothing.
I updated the Wiki to : This soul will NOT be respawned by using an ascetic on the bonfire.
Go to new game plus...

If this soul will NOT be respawned by using an ascetic on the bonfire, so how can i do it? I need another dragon soul!
The thought of a dragon having a soul is a bit off to me. Dragons (especially those from the age of ancients) didn't have souls. Or at least shouldn't have. Souls as we know the late born of fire, so how could something that has lived forever without a trace of flame in the world, bear something that have never existed before.
Also, in the dks1 opening cinematic, you can see many ancient dragons that all look alike. Seeing this evidence suggests that they all looked alike beside a few minor things such as horns or fur patterns/colors. Example, all dragons from the age of ancients had four wings, two horns, beaks, etc, while the "ancient" dragons of dark souls two look nothing alike.
This dragon looks similar to the dragon atop the shrine that gives you the ashen must heart, so it's entirely possible that it was yet another of Aldias experiments to make a dragon with the soul of a giant. The dragon atop the shrine give you an ashen must heart, yes? So who's to say that other dragons made by giants souls do not contain one of their own, built by the ascension to An immortal state. I believe it's entirely possible that the dragon of the memory, contained an ashen must heart of its very own, used it to travel to a memory, (of whom I don't know), and die in the memory. No longer being tied to the curse, it wasent sent back upon death, (maybe even by the hand of Gwyn himself) and stayed in the memory.
I'm not doubting the fact that dragons can have souls, no, but I feel they cannot have a soul, that much is proven by Kalamet alone, not even mentioning Seath, but I don't feel they can have souls unless they take them from others, by killing, just as we do.

So to racap, the dragon of the memory was a creation of Aldia. Being born of the soul of a giant, like that of the dragon in the shrine, (based on apperence alone), the dragon had an ashen mist heart alike his brother at the shrine. He traveled to the past via memory of an unnamed entity. No longer being an undead, as is a dragon, when he was killed in the memory he did not travel back to the present time. Staying in the ruined land we find him in today.

Thank you all for reading this and taking it into consideration, some real thought and speculation went into this and I'm open to disscussion of you're willing. Thank you again

tl;dr
Midir has a soul but good teory you made there.
If they all look the same then what of Seath
After reading up on some more lore, I found that I actually now disagree with the points I made in my original comment. Sorry. -Zatheos
seath spent a thousand years to try to figure out why he didn't have scales
dragons have souls, obviously, because there is a soul called "Ancient Dragon Soul" in the game, thus in canon.
There's kindof a glitch, not sure how to put it, in SOTFS if you use a bonfire asthetic before grabbing the soul it will disappear from that NG cycle.
Git gud
Git gud? Are you dumb he didnt complain about the game moron he gave advice
with 99 giant souls in the inventory, the ancient dragon drops the anciente dragon soul!!!
It’s obviously the Everlasting Dragon, area tells us that alone, that’s CLEARLY Ash Lake from DS1, and the heads actually do look similar, it’s just that the DS1 version was covered in fur and feathers and stuff
Fyi, In ds1, the everlasting dragon in ash lake has one of its horn smaller than the other one
How can get again the acient dragon soul?
You can't, once you use it that's it until NG+. Bonfire ascetic won't respawn it.
