War wages in Westeros. The second season of House of the Dragon will continue to follow the Targaryen dynasty and their struggles for power in Westeros. “There is no war so hateful to the Gods as a war between kin,” Rhaenys Targaryen, the Queen Who Never Was, said in the teaser.
She added, “And no war so bloody as a war between dragons.” The more than a minute long teaser included a glimpse of Alicent Hightower acknowledging, “Many will die, and the victor will eventually ascend the throne.”
About the show
Set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, the Emmy-nominated House of the Dragon is based on events detailed in George RR Martin’s Fire and Blood, a chronicle of the rise and fall of the Targaryen dynasty. The series launched in 2022 with the coronation of King Viserys I, who eventually named his eldest child, Rhaenyra Targaryen, his official heir.
