Where the author of the universe, George R.R. Martin, was only a consultant for Game of Thrones, he is more involved in the production of this derivative series - House of the Dragon is again produced at HBO . But, by the way, what is the original material?

Fire & Sang (At I have read in France)

House of the Dragon acts from Prequel to Game of Thrones , entirely centered on the Targaryen family - from which Daenerys came. The spin-off will be more precisely interested in a historical episode, that of the wars of succession, the "dance of the dragons". All of this conflict comes from a book written by George R.R. Martin: Fire & Sang.

George R.R. Martin had presented this work as "fictitious history", because, within the world of Game of Thrones, Fire & Sang is a book that exists. The author is the archimeter Gyldayn, of the citadel.

Note that if the work is cut into two volumes in France, it is actually two volumes, a choice of the original French publisher (Pygmalion). Because a second volume strictly speaking is envisaged by George R.R. Martin. Maybe someday. It is therefore not impossible that the series will one day, if it is renewed on several seasons, imagine again its own and end.

The series, in any case, will take us to meet characters present in this prequel book, like Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, King Viserys, Prince Daemon, or even "Sea Sea" Corlys.
