It’s the reign of House Targaryen:
House of the Dragon, the prequel to Game of Thrones, is here. Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series tells the story of House Targaryen.
In this first novel in a series of four, we follow the rise and fall of House Targaryen as they struggle to survive and thrive in Westeros. It all starts with Aegon III Targaryen, who becomes king after his father is killed in battle. The series tracks his adventures as he struggles to secure his throne and keep his family together as they are hunted by other houses for their bloodlines and for their ability to control dragons — a power that some seek to use for their own gain at any cost!
The first season stars Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, and Emma D’Arcy. The trio play King Viserys Targaryen, Prince Daemon Targaryen, and Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, respectively. House of the Dragon Season 1 was released on HBO Max on 21st August 2022.
The show follows King Viserys as he attempts to keep his family together while also attempting to protect his kingdom from a brewing civil war. The show’s central plot focuses on the king’s ongoing efforts to force Daenerys Targaryen into marriage before she can claim the Iron Throne for herself.
The show features lots of action and intrigue along with plenty of drama and romance – it’s definitely for fans of Game of Thrones!
