The Story is taken from “Fire & Blood”
We are back on our Dragonscat, long ago the person who recapped Game of Thrones for NPR, according to writer he has written a couple of primers at NPR. He has written to help us with the right headscape, after 200 years the House of Dragon opens events of Game of Thrones. The story is about 10 full-grown dragons, now the dynasty Targaryen is 100 years old, and the dynasty is at its height, the royal family holds the reins of the dragons.

In this corner: The King’s granddaughter “Rhaenys Targaryen” is standing besides her husband, whose name is Corlys Velaryon all call him with a name Sea Snake-in the film we will notice a lot more of him in the film.
In that corner: the Aemma Arryn is a wife of king’s grandson Viserys Targaryen, he is standing beside his wife, the Aemma Arryn is pregnant with their daughter Rhaenyra Targaryen. ( it is same characters which sporting the same long, Edgar Winter is coming.)
Rhaenys is older than Viserys, the Great Council should pick the queen Rhaenys but the Council chooses Viserys, since Patriarchy is nothing, so you cannot predict the Council.
