The House of the Dragon plot
House of the Dragon takes place several hundred years before the events of Game of Thrones. It is based on Martin’s novel Fire and Blood, which chronicles the reign of House Targaryen from the beginning. The story begins with the conquest of the seven kingdoms of Westeros by Aegon I Targaryen.
House of the Dragon will focus on a specific part of Targaryen history: the Dance of Dragons. It was a bloody and brutal Targaryen civil war that takes place 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. (This a little more than a century after Aegon I’s conquest.)
Star Olivia Cooke has revealed that House of the Dragon will not have the gratuitous graphic violence against women that was common on Thrones. She told The Telegraph (opens in a new tab) that “I wouldn’t feel comfortable being a part of something that just has blatant graphic violence against women for no reason, just because they want it to be tantalizing in a way that appeals to viewers.”
The death of King Viserys I sets off a succession struggle between his daughter from his first marriage, Princess Rhaenyra, and his son from his second marriage, Aegon II. Princess Shireen Baratheon told this story in an episode of the fifth season of Game of Thrones.
“Brothers fought brothers, dragons fought dragons,” she reminded her father, Stannis. “By the time it was over, thousands of people were dead.”
As Shireen noted, the conflict took its toll on the Targaryens, as nearly all of their dragons died in the war. The beasts remained extinct for a century and a half until Daenerys Targaryen hatched her three dragons in Game of Thrones.
