10 Things We Want From Game of Thrones Prequel ‘House of The Dragon’

Published

on

Game of Thrones ended last year in May once and for all. During the Emmys of 2018, the author George R.R. Martin had revealed show could have spanned for at least thirteen seasons. We too felt the same way after watching the final season of Game of Thrones –  it was rushed, and many fans couldn’t take ending well. Though the series has ended for good now, hopes are high for the prequel ‘House of the Dragon’ currently in development. 

House of the Dragon is expected to premiere in 2022 and George R.R. Martin will once again come aboard for it as a co-executive producer. Hopefully, with George coming back for the new series, it will be something better, leaving the fans more contended. Moreover, the series will be written by Ryan Condal –  known for major movies like Rampage, Colony, and Hercules. This is something fans will truly look forward to. 

The wait for House of the Dragon is long. We don’t have any more clues about it apart from the fact that it will be set 300 years prior to the events of Game of Thrones. Moreover, it will also be based on George’s 2019 book ‘Fire and Blood’ –  a book based on Targaryen history narrated from the point of view of a Maester. Yet, apart from these little details, here are 10 things we would definitely want the new series to cover: 

1. The story of King Jaehaerys and Queen Alysanne

The story of the noble Targaryen King Jaehaerys and Alysanne is worth telling. King Jaehaerys is told to be wise whereas his consort Alysanne is said to be high-spirited, charming and keenly intelligent. And the best part is that both of them were dragon riders. While Jaehaerys rode Vermithor – the third-largest dragon known after Balerion and Vhagar, Alysanne’s mount was Silverwing described as the most beautiful dragon. George’s book Fire and Flood even covers the story of the duo travelling North and how Silverwing refused to go beyond the Wall. 

This story rhymes with the most recent events in Game of Thrones. In Season 7, even Daenerys Targaryen rode her dragons far North much like her ancestor Alysanne. HBO should definitely cover this storyline in the new series House of the Dragon. 

2. Other Houses Involved Apart From Targaryens

The upcoming prequel series is named House of the Dragon. This essentially means that it will be a historical account of House Targaryen but wouldn’t we want to know which other houses were involved? A history and lore video from Game of Thrones already gave us a glimpse of all major houses during Aegon Targaryen’s Conquest – House Darrindon, House Stark, House Lannister, House Gardener, and others. We would love to see other major and minor houses during the reign of the Targaryens. 

3. Any Mention Of White Walkers in House of the Dragon

The White Walkers remained a mystery throughout the course of all eight seasons of Game of Thrones. The opening scene which shows two of the Night’s Watch members ambushed and brutally killed by them, teased we would learn a lot about them in the series. But before we could learn more, the series was over with Arya Stark being the one who puts an end to the Night King and his Army of the Dead. So, did those symbols, Children of the Forest, and the Three-eyed Raven meant nothing? 

We briefly got a glimpse of a First Man being stabbed with a dragonglass in the heart, which transforms him into the Night King. But there’s definitely something more to it we need to know out there. Since the ‘Bloodmoon’ prequel has been cancelled, we would definitely want to know if the Targaryens knew anything about the White Walkers at all?

4. Daenys The Dreamer and Her Dream

The Targaryens were one of the prominent houses in Valyria –  the mightiest of all kingdoms known for its prosperity and their knowledge of mystic arts. But, the Doom of Valyria left it in ashes. House Targaryen was the only house that survived it, thanks to Daenys the Dreamer who dreamt of it twelve years ago. Targaryens then settled down in Westeros choosing Dragonstone as its seat of power. 

Much like Daenerys Targaryen, there’s much to Daenys’ dreams too. We would definitely love to see this chapter in the chronicles of Targaryen history in House of the Dragon.

5. Aegon Targaryen As Focus Point Of House of the Dragon

House of the Dragon is meant to show accounts of the Targaryens as narrated in the Fire and Blood. After the Doom of Valyria, Targaryens settled down in Westeros choosing Dragonstone as its seat of power. Years later, Aegon along with his sister-wives Visenya and Rhaeneys began his conquest of Westeros.

Aegon rode Balerion the Dread and all the major houses of Westeros bowed to him and he finally became the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. We would definitely like to see this storyline being covered by the series.

6. Mystery Behind The Death Of Maegor the Cruel

Maegor Targaryen, also known as Maegor the Cruel, was the third Targaryen King to sit on the Iron Throne. He was the son Aegon the Conquerer and Visenya Targaryen. He is called Maegor the Cruel as he was a ruthless ruler much-like Cersei Lannister.

He was the one who torched Harrenhall and much like Cersei destroyed the Sept of Remembrance once the Faith of the Seven turned against the Targaryens. Though how he died always remained a mystery as he was found dead, seated on the Iron Throne. Some say he was killed by Queen Elinor, while others say he was killed by a knight of his Kingsguard. House of the Dragon should definitely cover Maegor’s storyline.

7. The Tragedy of Summerhall

The Tragedy of Summerhall was an important event in the chronicles of House Targaryen. It was a fire where King Aegon V Targaryen, his eldest son, Prince Duncan Targaryen, and Ser Duncan the Tall, were killed in a fire. It is said that the fire at the castle of Summerhall occurred due to a failed attempt of hatching petrified dragon eggs.

The tragedy also marked the birth of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen – the elder brother of Daenerys and biological father of Jon Snow. It’s a storyline worth getting a sight to the lovers of Game of Thrones.

8. Dance of the Dragons – the Targaryen Civil War

Dance of the Dragons – a civil war that broke out between Aegon II Targaryen and his half-sister Rhaenyra Targaryen for the Iron Throne. They both were the issues of King Viserys Targaryen. As a result of the two-year-long war, both of the rivals died and Aegon III was crowned the King of the Seven Kingdoms.

George RR Martin’s book Fire and Flood closely follows the story of Dance of the dragons and since the series House of the Dragon is based on it, there’s no doubt we don’t see this civil war in House Targaryen.

9. Daemon Blackfyre and How He Founded House Blackfyre

Daemon Blackfyre was a Targaryen bastard child of King Aegon IV Targaryen and he founded the House Blackfyre after Aegon Targaryen’s sword of the same name. He was legitimized by his father while dying and this started an event in Targaryen history known as the ‘Blackfyre Rebellion’.

The story of Daemon Blackfyre and House Blackfyre would be an interesting story to follow if the series House of the Dragon decides to go beyond the book Fire and Blood.

10. And, What Would ‘House Of The Dragon’ Be Without Dragons?

And finally, dragons! What would a prequel series to Game of Thrones based on Fire and Blood look like without dragons? After seeing Daenerys Targaryen’s three dragons – Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal, the fans would die to see more dragons. Balerion the Dread, Vhagar, Meraxes, Sunfyre, Moondancer – the list goes on for the new ones we expect to see in House of the Dragon.

It’s a long way until we see House of the Dragon premiere on our TV screens. With the series finally getting a nod from HBO, more and more news about it will surely surface. Don’t worry, we at Wiki of Thrones will definitely keep you posted about the same!

So, how excited are you for House of the Dragon and will it be better than Game of Thrones? Share your thoughts in the comments section down below.
