What’s more, The Winds of Winter — the sixth novel in Martin’s series — could offer some fascinating insights about Targaryens’ history with Dorne.

The Winds of Winter could give fans something to root for in the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series.

Despite the negative reception of the Game of Thrones’ series finale, HBO greenlit House of the Dragon, a prequel spinoff set 300 years earlier. Based on George R.R.

The Dance of the Dragons is referenced throughout Song of Fire and Ice books, but it’s unlikely the HBO spinoff will start there. It would make a lot of sense for House of the Dragon to start during the reign of Jaehaerys I Targaryen, who fought against Prince Morion Martell in the Fourth Dornish War.
