A thrilling history 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones.
House Targaryen, the only house of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria, settled on Dragonstone centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones. Fire & Blood begins with the famous Aegon the Conqueror, architect of the Iron Throne, and goes on to describe the generations of Targaryens that struggled to keep that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.

What actually took place during the Dragon Dance? Why was returning to Valyria so risky after the Doom? What was life like in Westeros when dragons reigned supreme? These are only a few of the topics addressed in this critical history, as narrated by a Citadel scholar and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white photos by artist Doug Wheatley, five of which are exclusive to this edition. Readers have glimpsed fragments of Targaryen history in novels like The World of Ice and Fire, but now, for the first time, the entire tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.
“This remarkable masterpiece, which inspired HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon, brings the fascinating history of the Targaryens to life.”
