The action takes place around 200 years before the events of “Game of Thrones” and tells of the heyday of the house of Targaryen and their dragons, which they use without hesitation in their quest for power for the Iron Throne of Westeros in the fight against their enemies.
In the season one pre-finale, The Green Council, the signs are pointing to war: with the Death of King Viserys (Paddy Considine) reignites Power struggle in the house of Targaryen to the succession to the throne and the claim to the Iron Throne.
After it last seemed like the dispute between Queen Alicent (Olivia Cooke) and the designated Heir-Empress Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) was settled to please the king Visery’s Prophecy everything changed.
The dying king’s last words come true fatal misunderstanding from Queen Alicent, since she her son of Aegon as future king sees. Actually, Viserys’ words were “You are the promise” actually addressed to Rhaenyra. However, Queen Alicent understands the statement differently and will use all her strength to place her son Aegon on the Iron Throne: “He wanted Aegon to be king!”
However, connoisseurs of the GoT series know how the prophecy The Song of Ice and Fire is to be interpreted correctly: Accordingly is Jon Snow aka Aegon Targaryen the rightful heir to the throne who caused the fall of Westeros by a army of undead from the north can prevent: “Winter is coming!”
Instead, the never-ending power struggle for the Iron Throne takes on new dimensions and will certainly Season finale with the waralso known as the Dance of the Dragonsfind its climax.
