House of the Dragon, What to Expect

The prequel will follow House Targaryen, in a time set 200 years before the events in Game of Thrones. It’ll depict the rise of the era fire, showing the legacy Daenerys Targaryen inherited. As the House Targaryen is infamous for being the masters of dragons, fans are expecting that they’ll get to see a ton more of them in action.
