Rife with infighting and overflowing with disparate dramas and tangled backstories, they’re the ideal focus for HBO’s new series House Of The Dragon, which takes place 200 years before the original show.

Though the Targaryens control the Iron Throne in House Of The Dragon, various family members are fighting over which of them will succeed as ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, seemingly one of the most popular pastimes in all of Westeros.

Crowned at the age of 14, Jaehaerys Targaryen had the longest and most peaceful reign of any Targaryen king.

The daughter of Jaehaerys’ eldest son, Aemon, and Jocelyn Baratheon (an ancestor of Robert Baratheon, the man eventually responsible for ending the Targaryen dynasty), Rhaenys would have been the logical choice as next in line for the Iron Throne, if only she weren’t born a girl.

Viserys (played by Paddy Considine) is the fifth Targaryen king to rule the Seven Kingdoms, succeeding his grandfather Jaehaerys after being chosen by the Great Council among at least 14 contenders with potential claims.

It’s also the closest the Targaryens will ever come to having a queen sit on the Iron Throne.

For an idea of just how much history exists between this series and the original, note that Jaehaerys is the fourth Targaryen king to rule the Seven Kingdoms.
