Top ‘House of the Dragon’ GOT Prequel Fan Theories

Everyone and their dog looked at the premiere episode of house of the dragonHBO game of Thrones prequel But did you (or your dog) catch the not-so-subtle references to the original series?

Focusing on the “Age of Dragons”, a period of time in Westeros when the Targaryen family reigned, house of the dragon Occurs approximately 200 years before game of Thrones begins The series takes note of the chronology in the opening, stating that our story begins “before the death of the mad king, Aerys, and the birth of his daughter, Princess Daenerys Targaryen.” However, some fans believe that the wink was not meant to connect the new series with game of Thrones, but to the original George RR Martin novels, A song of ice and fire.

At the end of the premiere episode, King Viserys Targaryen speaks with his daughter, Princess Rhaenyra. Viserys informs her that he intends to make her his heir to her throne, and shares with her a doomsday prophecy passed down through five generations of Targaryen rulers. According to Viserys, the legendary Targaryen Aegon “the Conqueror” had a vision that presaged a terrible winter and an enemy that could only be defeated if a Targaryen united the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Aegon supposedly titled the prophetic dream, “A Song of Ice and Fire”.

This reference, possibly just a way to connect house of the dragon to the events of thrones even more, it just created more questions. Viewers may remember that at the end of thronesSamwell Tarly tied the series with a nice bow by naming his written account of the events A song of ice and fire. Tarly then claims that he came up with the name himself. game of Thrones However, he never mentions Aegon’s prophecy, and Daenerys didn’t seem to be aware of it in the show either. Is this supposed inconsistency simply a form of fans to pick up the last two seasons of game of Thronesor is this the plain truth of the house of the dragon equipment also?

Theory may have legs to stand on. In an interview with vanity fair, Showrunner Ryan Condal confirmed that the idea for Aegon’s prophecy came from the writer himself. In the novels, Daenerys has a vision in the House of the Undying that mentions Aegon’s dream. Although this was not represented in game of Throneshe hears a voice belonging to his late brother Rhaegar, saying, “Aegon. What better name for a king… He is the promised prince, and his is the king.” Song of ice and fire.”

In hindsight, the statement almost pointed to Jon Snow. He has yet to be resurrected in the books (an insane fail for Martin for leaving us for so many years!) but thrones he eventually reveals that Jon is actually Rhaegar Targaryen’s son, Aegon. Martin also stated that he intends to incorporate the prophecy into The winter winds-if I ever finished writing!—which will also have a “very different” ending.” Is this his way of adding new ideas to a series of decades in the making, or is the title of the prophecy a way of separating his work from thrones’ disappointing conclusion?

“What we’re doing at this point in the history of A song of ice and fire…we have two canons”, author George RR Martin declared in a video broadcast live. “The show (game of Thrones) canon, and the book (The song of ice and fire) canon”. For fans of the series, it’s a welcome distinction. Though it’s almost impossible to see the new prequel series as anything more than a continuation of HBO. thronestheory allows the public to watch technically house of the dragon like a prequel to the beloved novels. Works for me. Whatever it takes to erase game of Thrones‘s running out of our minds!
