Why Game Of Thrones Fans Need To Give ‘House Of The Dragon’ A Chance

Game of Thrones, a popular American fantasy drama series, ended in 2019. Since the announcement of the prequel to Game Of Thrones, House Of The Dragon, fans have been eager to learn more about the heavily hyped fantasy series. Some fans, on the other hand, believe that the show would be better off if it were left alone, as they want the show’s heritage to be preserved. House Of The Dragon, on the other hand, was designed by George RR Martin and Ryan J Condal, which means it might be the answer to many of Game Of Thrones’ unresolved problems. Here’s why Game of Thrones fans should check out ‘House Of The Dragon’:

1. It will have more amazing dragons:

Daenerys Targaryen’s 3 dragons were featured in some of the most memorable scenes from Game of Thrones. They were both saviors and children to Daenerys Targaryen as well as  the breakers of armies and cities of her foes. Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion were the final dragons to be born, decades or centuries after dragons first appeared in the world. Because there were only three of them, seeing them on TV was always a pleasure. Consider a veritable army of dragons serving the Targaryens. It would be the ultimate kind of visual chaos.

2. We’ll get to know the history of Alys Rivers

Low-born characters, like as Alys Rivers, the strange witch figure from the Dance of the Dragons, are frequently overlooked in Fire and Blood. Alys appears to conjure magic, receive visions, and mesmerise other characters, including members of House Targaryen, throughout the novel. Some even speculate that she, like Melisandre in the TV series, is considerably older than she looks. Alys has a sexual relations with Prince Aemon Targaryen, who acts strangely when he is with her. Hopefully, there will be more chance to learn more about Alys and her abilities.

3. It’s a chance to explore the backgrounds of the houses

The Lannister clan seems to be the cruel overlords of Westeros for the majority of Game of Thrones. The Starks are a noble line that have faced numerous tragedies while serving the realm. Daenerys Targaryen looks to be the outcast and saviour of Westeros, banking on her charisma, a devoted army, and dragons to reclaim the Iron Throne. Despite the fact that Game of Thrones has provided viewers with eight seasons of bloodshed, passion, and court politics, there is still more to be discovered. A spinoff/prequel could do wonders for the fans.

4. A deeper look into the Targaryen’s rise to royalty

“Dreams didn’t make us kings, dragons did,” Daemon Targaryen declares in voice-over in the first House of the Dragon preview. This comment could have significant ramifications on a number of levels. We only know Daenerys from her house so far. Several more Targaryens with a well-documented gift for prophecy are mentioned in Fire & Blood and The World of Ice and Fire. Some fans believe that because Dany was raised separately from the other Targaryens, she was denied access to a special learning which only the dragon’s blood was permitted to receive, and that we will discover more about it in the new series.

5. We will return to our favourite Westoros again

Coming back to Westeros may be enough to convince viewers to give Game of Thrones spinoffs a shot. From the cold north to the exotic country of Dorne in the south, Westeros is a complete universe. Despite the fact that Game of Thrones is a relatively new book and TV phenomenon than many others, Westeros has instantly become one of the most popular fictional settings in recent years. Taking people back to a site that has given them so much pleasure may be a jackpot in itself.
