Game Of Thrones Fire And Blood Targaryen Prequel Series In The Works
| Last updated
We all bid farewell to Game of Thrones earlier this year and there were a lot of opinions on whether it was a fitting end.
Then came news a prequel series was being concocted, delving thousands of years in the past from where we left the Starks and Targaryens.
But now we've been given news that could get people very, very excited.
According to Deadline, HBO is working on producing a prequel series that focuses entirely on the Dragon family known as the Targaryens.
Of course we were all obsessed with Dany and her dragons, but the history of her bloodline is one filled with a lot of death, destruction and conquering.
Author behind the original series, George R. R. Martin, has already released a book detailing the history of the Targaryens called Fire and Blood, meaning HBO has plenty of source material to work with.
Deadline reports the prequel series would be set 300 years before Game of Thrones and would track 'the beginning of the end for House Targaryen'.
Fire and Blood begins with Aegon the Conqueror, who also was the ruler that created the Iron Throne that everyone in Westeros was so bloody keen to have.
The book goes into detail on how the dragon family held off repeated attempts to take the throne as well as from within their own ranks.
A civil war known, known as the Dance of the Dragons, nearly destroyed their family and could have prevented Dany from ever being born.
