King Viserys: When Is He Going to Die in House of The Dragon?
King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine) isn’t very important in Westeros, but when will he die in the house of the dragon? The main plot of House of the Dragon is about who will take over as ruler of the Seven Kingdoms from Viserys. Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock), the teenage daughter of the King and the named heiress, is afraid that her half-brother Aegon, Viserys’ firstborn son by his second wife, Lady Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey), will take away her claim. Viserys’s bad health is making it hard for him to rule as king.
In House of the Dragon, Viserys has a disease without a name called “The Rot.” The king cut himself on the Iron Throne, which led to an infection that made him lose two fingers on his left hand. Hand. Viserys’s illness is getting worse in Episode 4 of “House of the Dragon.” His body is covered in bruises and wounds that won’t heal. The king is always in pain, which makes him feel bad and makes him drink wine to make the pain go away.
Viserys is king, so he has to deal with a lot of political pressure, and Rhaenyra and her brother, Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith), cause him personal problems. Viserys disease, on the other hand, is now known as “necrotizing fasciitis.” This is an infection that causes black spots and blisters on the skin that need to be surgically removed. In House of the Dragon, King Viserys is going to die, but when will it happen? In George R.
Viserys dies in 129 ADS, which starts the Succession Crisis that leads to the Dance of the Dragons, the war between Rhaenyra and the Alicent factions (and their dragons) over the Iron One’s Throne. In the fourth episode of House of the Dragon, Rhaenyra and Alicent were both in their teens. This was around 117 or 118 AC.
This means that Viserys will have to suffer for about 10 more years before he dies in AD 129, if the HBO show stays true to the book’s timeline. However, House of the Dragon already breaks the book’s timeline and makes its own Has. Episode 9, if not sooner.
Why Does King Viserys Need to Die Before House of the Dragon Season 1 Ends?
The death of Viserys, which the House of Dragon has been planting and growing since the beginning of the series, is the turning point that makes House Targaryen go in a different direction. Once the king is dead, the dramatic arc of the House of the Dragon series, called the Dance of the Dragons, starts.
Because of the time travel in House of the Dragon, there will soon be a big change in the cast. Young Rhaenyra and Alicent, who viewers have come to know and love, will leave the show. She was replaced by Emma D’Arcy, who plays Rhaenyra, and Olivia Cooke, who plays both Alicent and Rhaenyra when they are around 30 years old. Now that House of the Dragon has been officially redone, it’s possible that most of the Dance of the Dragons will happen in Season 2, with Season 1 being mostly about setting up the Targaryen Civil War.
No matter what happens, King Viserys’s time is running out. This is like how King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) and Ned Stark (John Bradley) died in Season 1 of Game of Thrones (Sean Bean). The real story of House of the Dragon can’t start until Viserys dies, either from his horrible illness or for some other reason (Fire and Blood aren’t clear about what killed Viserys). House of the Dragon will be very different and will focus on many new characters, especially Rhaenyra and Alicent’s children.
King Viserys’ death in ‘House of the Dragon’ produces two factions in the Targaryen family
This problem is never solved. So, when King Viserys dies, there will be a fight between two parts of House Targaryen for the Iron Throne. The family splits in two, and each side gets its own friends and servants. “The greens” back Alicent and her son Aegon’s claim, while “the blacks” back Princess Rhaenyra.
This happens when the Targaryen family is in charge of dozens of dragons. So, when the family breaks up and starts fighting, there are dragons and dragonriders on both sides.
The civil war is known as ‘The Dance of the Dragons’
Because dragons are on both sides, the battles in this civil war take place in the sky. Because of this, the war is called “The Dance of the Dragons.” This war was talked about in both Game of Thrones and Martin’s original books.
Since the war doesn’t start until after King Viserys dies, it’s not clear how much the character will be in the series. Will he only be in the first couple of episodes? Will the Dance of the Dragons even happen in season 1? There are still no answers to these questions.
Because Viserys’s rule and what happens during that time are so important to why the civil war starts, it’s possible that this could be the main focus of the whole first season. Fans may have to wait until season 2 or later for the real war to start.
House of the Dragon starts on HBO on Sunday, August 21. On HBO Max, you can watch all eight seasons of Game of Thrones.
