The series “House of the Dragon” focuses on the fall of House Targaryen and details the events leading up to the war for the right to sit on the Iron Throne, or as it is also called “The Dance of the Dragons.” The second episode, titled “The Rogue Prince,” sheds light on the beleaguered Prince Damon Targaryen, disparagingly named successor to King Viserys I.

Viserys chose instead to appoint his daughter Rhaenyra Targaryen as heir to the Iron Throne, breaking centuries of tradition. But the other half of House Targaryen disagrees with this decision since Lady Alicent and her children have the same rights to the throne.
The lack of a direct male heir and the breaking of a long tradition will be the cause of the conflict and the key theme of the second series of House of the Dragon, which is scheduled for release on August 28, 2022.
Where did it all begin?
In the first series, we were shown the transfer of power from King Jaehaerys to Prince Viserys Targaryen. The tragedy took both of his sons from him leaving his inheritance without an owner. Viserys had two wives, Aymma Arryn (her belly was cut open to deliver a boy, the intended heir to the throne) and Alicenta Hightower. The presence of both wives, whose children have equal rights to the throne, was the cause of the internecine wars for the throne
I should note that the childbirth scene, in which Viserys had to make a difficult choice (he literally allowed his wife to be killed) caused shock and heated discussion among viewers of the series. The first episode was watched by 10 million people, which is only slightly less than Game of Throne’s viewership. The release date of Episode 2 of series House of the Dragon will be August 28, 2022. The project has great potential and may surpass its predecessor in the final episodes.
