The summary of the plot of House Of The Dragon

The series House Of The Dragon is about a conflict of who will be the real heir to the iron throne after the death of the king, Viserys l

The fight is between Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and her brother Aegon II. Both of them feel that they are the real heir to the Iron Throne but who actually will be taking over the throne is something to watch. While Prince Daemon Targaryen who is the younger brother of the king feels that he is the true heir of the Iron Throne and he should be the ruler of the seven kingdoms.

The king, Viserys I had one elder daughter with his wife but he always wanted a son so that when he dies, he can leave a true air for the throne as, in that era, women were not considered an heir. And being ruled by a woman was unacceptable thing for everyone.

The king remained without a son for a while, but after a while, the queen gave birth to a son and the situation became quite dire; everyone declared that either the son could live or that they would both have to die.

From then, the fight for the Iron throne started.

“These books, these characters, are like my kids, When you give your kids to people for adoption, you wonder how they will be treated, will you recognize them?”
