It’s a treat for the GOT fans as the prequel to the infamous fantasy drama, Game of Thrones, is coming to screens soon. Marketed as Game of Thrones: House of the Dragon, the series originally goes by the name ‘House of the Dragon’ and is adapted from the excerpts from Fire & Blood, the novel by the best-selling author George R. R. Martin. The show is expected to put and keep the audience on the very edges of their seats as the critics have reviewed the show being the one that might as well surpass the excitement and thrill of GOT. Keep reading to know more. 

House of the Dragon: Plot and Cast

House of the Dragon narrates a tale of events that took place two hundred years before the affairs of Game of Thrones. It chronicles the inception of the end of House Targaryen, which leads up to and covers their war of succession, namely, “Dance of the Dragons”, the civil war between Aegon II and Rhaenyra. The siblings are up against each other to throne themselves following the death of Viseys I, their father. All of the houses of Westeros, the Starks and the Lannisters to name a few, took either side of the war in which a number of compelling dragons perished. Following the war, the dragons go extinct leaving three eggs behind which remain dormant for a century until one fine day, Daenerys Targaryen, a.k.a. the Khaleesi, hatches them all, thus being pronounced the Mother of Dragons.
