Countdown To House of the Dragon Season 1 - Release Date

Hurry Up!

In the beginning of the prequel series, the Targaryen dynasty has more than 15 dragons under their control, and they are at the absolute pinnacle of their power.

From such heights, the majority of empires, both actual and imagined, fall. The decline of the Targaryen dynasty begins almost 193 years before the events of “Game of Thrones” when King Viserys Targaryen goes against a century’s worth of custom by declaring his daughter Rhaenyra to be the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.

This decision marks the beginning of the family’s long and painful descent into disgrace. However, when Viserys subsequently has a son, the court is taken aback when Rhaenyra continues to hold her position as his heir, and these events sow the seeds of division and discord throughout the realm.
