The Cursed History Of Harrenhal Explained

History is all the pieces in “House of the Dragon” and people who do not be taught from it … effectively, you understand how the saying goes. No location in all of Westeros supplies a starker instance of this than Harrenhal, which has stood as an enduring reminder to by no means mess with the Targaryens and their dragons. Built as the most important and mightiest fortress in all of the land, King Harren “the Black” named it after himself and made this his house 300 years previous to the occasions of “Game of Thrones,” again when the Seven Kingdoms really had that many rulers and kings (and extra!) all vying for energy … till they have been invaded by Aegon Targaryen and his sisters in the course of the period that may turn into often known as the Conquest.

While different lords both died combating or bent the knee to the unstoppable may of three full-grown dragons, Harren determined to place his belief within the power of Harrenhal to outlast any assault that Aegon may throw his method. As you’ll be able to in all probability think about, that did not go so effectively when Aegon merely mounted Balerion the Black Dread (whose large cranium we have seen in each “House of the Dragon” and “Game of Thrones” earlier than) and actually roasted the defenders inside, melting the very fort itself and ceaselessly casting a pall over the encircling space.

Even if that have been the final notable occasion of Harrenhal popping up in Westorosi historical past, it could’ve remained an instance for everybody to be taught from … however that was solely the start of the dangerous luck attributed to the fort and people unlucky souls who would dare to take up residence as castellan of Harrenhal.
