After years in the making, the eagerly anticipated House of the Dragon prequel will finally be available on August 21. Many fans of the infamous HBO series “Game of Thrones” felt underwhelmed by the contentious eighth series and have been eagerly anticipating a return to Westeros.
The Targaryens, the House of the Dragon, who governed Westeros for three centuries prior to the events of Game of Thrones, are the main subject of the new television series. The forthcoming series will be based on George R.R. Martin’s story collection “Fire and Blood,” which includes some important details about the Targaryen family’s past.

However, as viewers will soon learn, the incestuous royal family is made up of murky familial ties and a profusion of Aegons, Aemonds, and Daemons.

The artist admitted to being displeased with the Targaryens’ lack of uniqueness in a 2016 interview with Vox. Approximately midway between Aegon Targaryen’s conquering of Westeros and the passing of Daenerys Targaryen in the Game of Thrones conclusion, the forthcoming series takes place in the midst of the family tree. The “Targtree” can now accomplish its main goal and assist us all in getting ready for the upcoming series!

Who will appear in House of the Dragon as a Targaryen?
The years are classified as either “Before Conquest” (BC) or “After Conquest” under George R. R. Martin’s unique dating system, which he devised in the course of creating the universe in which both Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon take place (AC). The conquest in question is Aegon’s use of his dragons to unite the seven kingdoms of Westeros. Viserys I Targaryen’s tenure, which started in 103 AC when he succeeded his grandfather Jaehaerys, is where House of the Dragon starts.
Instead of his younger brother, Daemon, Viserys picked his daughter, Princess Rhaenyra, to take over as ruler of Westeros. Aegon the Younger, Viserys, and Visenya, a stillborn child, are the three offspring the two siblings have after their respective marriages pass away.
Aegon II ascends to the throne after Viserys dies, despite the intentions of his father, who later uses his dragon to slay Rhaenyra. Jaehaera, the only surviving child of Aegon II, is engaged to Aegon the Younger, Rhaenyra’s oldest son. By the end of the series, the two are recognized as his heirs and go on to jointly rule the kingdom.
On August 21, 2022, the premiere of House of the Dragon will air on HBO and HBO Max, and Sky and NOW TV in the UK will carry it.
