'House of the Dragon': Every Targaryen You Need To Know

House of the Dragon takes place in the same King's Landing we got to know in Game of Thrones, but with an entirely new cast of characters. Just like Game of Thrones, House of

the Dragon's charactes, who are mostly Targaryens, have complicated relationships with one another. These can be overwhelming to follow at first: So many new faces, so little

screen time. If you've seen episode 4, King of the Narrow Sea, you know some family relationships can be more, uh, complicated than others. As the series ratchets up to the

Targaryen civil war, also known as the Dance of the Dragons, relationships will only get more complex. This list of key Targaryens should help make sense of the chaos as we

go along. Beware: House of the Dragon Episode 4 spoilers are included below.Aegon the Conquerer Aegon Targaryen isn't shown in House of the Dragon, but his legend is

frequently referenced. Often referred to as Aegon the Conqueror, Aegon was the first king of Westeros. He married both of his sisters -- the Targaryens were doing it way before

Jaime and Cersei Lannister -- Rhaenys and Visenya. The three of them each had dragons, which they used to unite the seven kingdoms of Westeros by force. Using the swords of his

fallen enemies, Aegon had his dragon forge the Iron Throne. If you delve into A Song of Ice and Fire lore, you'll note the terms BC and AC. That's Before the Conquest and

After the Conquest. Rhaenyra Targaryen, for instance, was born 97 AC.
