In 2018, Martin released a book called Fire & Blood that documented the rise of the Targaryen family.

What is House of the Dragon about?
The future of the franchise lies in the past. The next story set in the Game of Thrones universe will occur 300 years before the events of the first season of Game of Thrones and features the reign of the Targaryen family in early Westeros. Martin and Ryan Condal executive produce the series, which stars Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon, Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower, Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower and more.
Rhaenyra and Daemon Targaryen (ancestors of prominent GoT character Daenerys Targaryen) were key players in the Targaryen civil war that was the focus of Dance of the Dragons, and House of the Dragon will explore the preceding events. Other familiar names and Houses line the roster for the show, as well as lesser-known Houses like House Velaryon, House Highwater and more.
At a recent San Diego Comic-Con panel for the series, the cast discussed the trials that come with living up to Game of Thrones, and the ways that the series will play into the events of the first series.
