Do not watch House of the Dragon without first reading this

More than three years have passed since 'Game of Thrones' ended

but its fans continue to consume any kind of content connected to the hit HBO series. 

If you are one of them, you will soon be able to enjoy 'House of the Dragon', but there 

are several things you need to know before you watch the pre-sequel to your favorite series.

'House of the Dragon' will take place in the middle of the Targaryens' reign, about 130 years

after that dynasty conquered Westeros and almost 200 years before the events 

of 'Game of Thrones', so don't expect to see Ned Stark, Jon Snow or Robert Baratheon running around.

Yes and no. 'Game of Thrones' was based on the books 'The Chronicles of Ice and Fire' by George R.R. Martin.

'House of the Dragon' is not inspired by this saga, but by a derivative saga called 'Fire & Blood' consisting of two volumes, of which only one has been published so far.
