Is there House Baratheon in “House of the Dragon?” Let’s Find out.

A prequel novel situated in the same universe was written by the name of George R.R. Martin to put off finishing the eagerly awaited next book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series. This prequel book has now been turned into a House of the Dragon television series, which will premiere on HBO on Sunday, August 21, 2022. The Targaryens will be the series’ main emphasis, as shown in the teaser, but will any other notable houses, such as House Baratheon, have any significance? So has got you covered.

Is there House Baratheon in “House of the Dragon?” Let’s Find out.

The civil war known as Robert’s Rebellion, which saw House Baratheon displace the Targaryens as the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros’ rulers, took place decades before the events of the television series Game of Thrones. In House of the Dragon, there is a brief reference to the Baratheons They do not, however, play a significant role in the Game of Thrones prequel series (at least not yet). House of the Dragon takes place two centuries before Game of Thrones, as we know that. The Targaryen family, specifically, is at the center of House of the Dragon’s main struggle.

When King Viserys I (not Daenerys’ cousin) announces that his eldest daughter Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) will inherit the Iron Throne, the seeds of civil war are sowed among the members of our favorite silver-haired, dragon-riding house. Matt Smith’s character, Prince Daemon Targaryen, is furious at the succession snub. Why didn’t his brother Viserys simply present him with the throne? So, Daemon makes the claim that he is the legitimate heir, just as any pampered royal would in this circumstance. Civil war breaks out.

The Stormlands on Westeros’ eastern coast aptly called for its frequent storms are traditionally ruled by House Baratheon of Storm’s End, a Great House of the continent. Their capital is Storm’s End. After Robert Baratheon led a rebellion against the Targaryen dynasty, House Baratheon was made the ruling house of the Seven Kingdoms (as House Baratheon of King’s Landing). Following Lyanna Stark’s passing, Robert assumed the throne as Robert I at the end of the rebellion and wed Cersei Lannister. After Stannis Baratheon and his family passed away, House Baratheon was declared defunct; but, it was resurrected when Gendry Baratheon, Robert’s last known bastard, was recognized as such by Queen Daenerys Targaryen. The house motto “Ours is the Fury” and the crowned black stag on a field of gold are those of House Baratheon.

Even though the Baratheons haven’t yet played a significant role in the disputes within the Targaryen dynasty, this doesn’t rule out the possibility that they will in a later season of House of the Dragon. After all, the Targaryen strife diminishes their family’s power as the rulers of Westeros to the extent that Robert Baratheon can intervene and overthrow them later on. The drama that started involved Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, but Game of Thrones has already told that tale. We’d be stunned if House of the Dragon terminated after Season 1, even though a second season hasn’t yet been ordered.

Until then, you may watch the House of the Dragon Season 1 Premiere on HBO and HBO Max on Sunday, August 21, at 8 p.m. EST. So when George’s top-notch procrastination project premieres this Sunday.
