what to expect from the plot of House of the Dragon?
Adapted from Martin’s Targaryen history book Fire and Blood, House of the Dragon is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. The show will focus on an infamous event in Westeros history known as the Dance of the Dragons.
It is a civil war that took place between the siblings Aegon II and Rainera on the throne after the death of their father, Viserys I. The war turned all of Westeros against itself, with other houses such as the Starks and Lannisters joining on either side.

Many of House Targaryen’s mighty dragons perished – and would soon become extinct until Daenerys Targaryen lays three eggs hundreds of years later.
We see bits and pieces from the action in the first teaser for House of the Dragon, running down dramatically long hallways with some classic, GOT-style sword-fighting, out-and-out, dramatics.
Plus, we see Matt Smith’s Prince having some thoughts on the shoreline. Really, though, the trailer seems as though it’s meant to whet our appetites, with the bigger story coming down the line.
