If you have watched Game of Thrones from the beginning, you know that there is a rich history before the series even takes place that is hinted at.
On Thursday, HBO release this 4 and a half minute clip from “Game of Thrones Conquest & Rebellion: An Animated History of the Seven Kingdoms,” that takes a look back into the history that shapes current events in the series.
Chapter 1 starts at the very beginning of course, before the Targaryens even got to Westeros. Daenerys’ ancestors came from Valyria, an ancient and advanced city where the people tamed dragons and used magic. But where are the Valyrians? We havent seen them on the show. That’s because of something called the Doom occurred and while we dont know exactly what it is, we get some hints.
Unfortunately the video doesnt cover everything nor was it intended to. A full 45-minute version will be available with the Season 7 DVD box set.
Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere on HBO in 2019 ugggh (we belivee as no date has been announced). Season 7 comes to DVD and Blu-ray on December 12.
Did the video whet your appetite to see the rest? Will you be getting the Season 7 DVD?
