House of the Dragon Story
House of the Dragon follows the same vibe as Game of Thrones did. The story is about the ancestors of Daenerys Targaryen, and the family drama and turbulence are pretty much the same in this era too. The fight is about the same thing: succession, King Jaehaerys I Targaryen is sick and he wants an heir, The Westerosi lords choose Prince Viserys over Princess Rhaenys. Prince Viserys is enjoying his time as the main heir, he starts to celebrate because his wife Queen Aemma Arryn is pregnant. Prince Viserys is sure that it will be a male heir, which will take the throne afterward. But unfortunately, his wife Queen Aemma Arryn dies during childbirth, and their son Baelon also dies after a while.
Prince Daemon who is the brother of Prince Viserys is cruel and as brutal as a person can be. Prince Viserys dismisses Prince Daemon because he gets to know that Prince Daemon mocked the death of his child. Princess Rhaenyra who is the daughter of Prince Viserys is now the new queen. The situation is not at all nice because Prince Viserys is grieving, Lord Corlys is furious at Prince Viserys that he married Lady Alicent and not his daughter Laena, and he goes to support Prince Daemon. Meanwhile, Prince Daemon is trying very hard to gain people in his army after he was dismissed by Prince Viserys, he ends up stealing really precious things and claims that he is the true and real heir.
