House Of Dragons: The Origin

House of the Dragon is based on Fire and Blood, a novel by George RR Martin covering the rise and fall of the Targaryen dynasty as recorded by a maester in pre-Game of Thrones time. Since that book has been out for about two years, we have a pretty good idea of what we can expect to see from House of the Dragon’s plot.

The book picks up with Aegon’s Conquest, which marked the very beginning of a new world order, the establishment of King’s Landing as the world capital, and the physical formation of the Iron Throne.

Together with the help of his twin sisters, Rhaenys and Visenya (not to mention their three dragons), Aegon Targaryen I successfully subdued six of the seven kingdoms of Westeros, whether by conquest or their voluntary submission. Dorne was the only kingdom to successfully resist Targaryen rule. The only kingdom to prevail unconquered was Dorne, which Rhaenys left unharmed after finding its castles abandoned and only women and children occupying its seat.
