In this installment of our collaboration with History of Westeros, we cover more dragons dancing (and dying), and more death, destruction, and disappointment in the Targaryen civil war. We also discuss some real world history parallels and make a few more chess metaphors!
Lady Gwyn and Aziz from History of Westeros continue a series analyzing the Dance of the Dragons. In this episode we explore the opening moves of the conflict, efforts at diplomacy, and the events that led to full scale civil war. Mini sections on Aegon II, the dragons, and the real world history that influenced GRRM complete the episode.
Lady Gwyn and Aziz from History of Westeros host the first of a co-produced series analyzing the Dance of the Dragons. In this episode we explore the real world influences for the saga, as well as the root causes and conflicts that led to the Targaryen civil war.
