'Game of Thrones': The History of House Targaryen Revealed

'Game of Thrones': The History of House Targaryen Revealed”

"Game of Thrones" has a long - a very, very long - built-in history that is sometimes hard to follow.

Game of Thrones may be focused on the war for the Iron Throne, but there's another epic battle in the past that's just as iconic, and it's finally getting a miniseries of its own.

As we know though, House Targaryen survived.

Of course, here in the gap between seasons, it's as much fun to look back as it is to guess at what lies ahead.

Game of Thrones season seven Blu-ray and DVD will have a 45-minute bonus feature that will bring you the never-before-seen story of the turbulent events that shaped Westeros for thousands of years before the start of the television version of the series.

Bonus: The episode is narrated by Game of Thrones actor Harry Lloyd, in-character as Daenerys' dickish brother Viserys. This golden age of House Targaryen, replete with a glorious homeland and manifold dragons, has oft been cited as a potential era to explore in a spinoff series.

Game of Thrones has offered hints and teases about the man who conquered Westeros with fire and blood for years, and the show name-checked Aegon the Conqueror in almost every episode.

However, it's slightly frustrating that this video cuts out just before proceedings get bloody and brutal: as the clip ends, Aegon Targaryen (Jon's namesake, and an ancestor to him, Dany and Viserys) is planning his conquest. The family remained quiet until Aegon Targaryen made a decision to conquer the west, along with the seven ancient houses that ruled. Luckily, HBO is hoping to catch you up before the final season with a new animated history lesson.

Season eight of Game of Thrones is still far away with the premiere dates being speculated to be scheduled in late 2018 or early 2019.

The Game of Thrones season 7 DVD and Blu-ray will be released December 12.
