In the 'House of the Dragon' series premiere, the blood of the dragon runs thick

I've composed a couple convenient preliminaries to assist us with all getting in the right headspace, however basically Forget what you know, you won't require it much.

Place of the Dragon opens around 200 years before the occasions of Game of Thrones. The now 100-year-old Targaryen Dynasty is at its level, as the imperial family holds.

We open at Harrenhal, the huge destroyed palace that got broadly dracarysed by Aegon the Conqueror, organizer behind the Targaryen Dynasty, 100 years prior.

We're seeing the Great Council of 101 AC, where the inheritor of the Iron Throne will be chosen.

In this corner: Rhaenys Targaryen, the lord's granddaughter (she's remaining next to her significant other Corlys Velaryon, otherwise known as the Sea Snake — we'll be seeing much more of him).

In that corner: the lord's grandson Viserys Targaryen, remaining next to his better half Aemma Arryn, who is pregnant with their girl, Rhaenyra Targaryen.

(I know, I know — we're not so much as two minutes in and as of now there's a Rhaenys and a Rhaenyra to battle with.

 Also the way that the vast majority of the characters are donning the equivalent long, plantinum-blonde hairpiece. Welcome to the Targaryen Dynasty. Edgar Winter is coming.)

The Great Council picks Viserys, despite the fact that Rhaenys is more established, on the grounds that the male controlled society isn't anything while perhaps not completely unsurprising.
