They brought with them a stolen crown: a band of yellow gold ornamented with seven gems of different colors. Sunfyre was the name given this dragon of the golden dawn. Munkun tells us the king flew thrice around the city before landing inside the walls of the Red Keep.

Shouts rang through the hall. On Dragonstone, no cheers were heard. She cursed the child inside her too. The dead girl had been named Visenya, Princess Rhaenyra announced the next day, when milk of the poppy had blunted the edge of her pain.

See a Problem?

They stole my crown and murdered my daughter, and they shall answer for it. Rhaenyra herself presided, with her uncle and husband Prince Daemon. That had always been deemed sufficient for a fortress of such strength. But the greatest lord to pledge his strength to the princess was Corlys Velaryon of Driftmark.

Mayhaps the Seven have preserved me for this one last fight. All their hosts combined could not match the power the Hightowers alone could field.

Every visible symbol of legitimacy belonged to Aegon. He lived in the Red Keep. Grand Maester Orwyle sat in his councils, and the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard had placed the crown upon his princely head.

And he was male, which in the eyes of many made him the rightful king, his half sister the usurper. Many a young lord and noble knight had sought her favor then … though how many would still fight for her, now that she was a woman wed, her body aged and thickened by six childbirths, was a question none could answer.

And her consort Prince Daemon, tried and tempered in the Stepstones, had more experience of warfare than all their foes combined. Last, but far from least, Rhaenyra had her dragons.

Dragons thrive best here on Dragonstone. King Aegon had his Sunfyre. A splendid beast, though young. Caraxes especially was fearsome, and no stranger to blood and fire after the Stepstones.

Moreover, six other dragons made their lairs in the smoky caverns of the Dragonmont above the castle. And back of the mountain dwelled three wild dragons, never claimed nor ridden by any man, living or dead. The smallfolk had named them Sheepstealer, Grey Ghost, and the Cannibal.

Aegon the Conquerer and his sisters had proved that knights and armies could not stand against the fire of dragons. Our nine must surely overwhelm his four. I will not be strong enough to fly for some time yet. And who is to ride Silverwing, Vermithor, and Seasmoke? You, my lord? I hardly think so. It will be five against four, and one of their four will be Vhagar. That is no advantage.

It is no easy thing for a man to be a dragonslayer. But dragons can kill dragons, and have. Any maester who has ever studied the history of Valyria can tell you that. There are other ways to use them, better ways. Afterward they would send out ravens, calling on the lords of the Seven Kingdoms to declare their allegiance to their true queen.

The lords of the Great Houses held the key to victory, Daemon insisted; their bannermen and vassals would follow where they led. Prince Daemon had good reason to hope that the Maid of the Vale might bring the Eyrie to their side as well. But the ironmen were notoriously fickle, and Dalton Greyjoy loved blood and battle; he might easily be persuaded to support the princess. The north was too remote to be of much import in the fight, the council judged; by the time the Starks gathered their banners and marched south, the war might well be over.

Which left only the riverlords, a notoriously quarrelsome lot ruled over, in name at least, by House Tully of Riverrun. We need a place where they can gather, a toehold on the mainland large enough to house a sizeable host, and strong enough to hold against whatever forces the usurper can send against us. Prince Daemon would lead the assault on Harrenhal, riding Caraxes. The Velaryon fleet would close off the Gullet, sallying forth from Dragonstone and Driftmark to block all shipping entering or leaving Blackwater Bay.

But Aegon is a green boy, and green boys are easily provoked. Mayhaps we can goad him into a rash attack. Only Targaryens ride dragons. Princess Rhaenyra forbade that; Joff was but twelve. But Jacaerys was fifteen, Lucerys fourteen; strong and strapping lads, skilled in arms, who had long served as squires. A hasty coronation was held the next day. Let them come to Dragonstone, bend the knee, and ask my forgiveness, and I shall gladly spare their lives and take them back into my heart, for they are of my own blood, and no man or woman is as accursed as the kinslayer.

Send me to her, that we may talk and reach an amicable accord. And so the first blood shed in the Dance of the Dragons belonged to Lord Lyman Beesbury, master of coin and lord treasurer of the Seven Kingdoms.

No further dissent was heard after the death of Lord Beesbury. No ravens flew that night. No bells rang. Queen Alicent alone amongst them was excused from the oath, on the account of her womanhood. Dawn was breaking over the city before Queen Alicent dispatched the Kingsguard to bring her sons to the council. One-eyed Prince Aemond, nineteen, was found in the armory, donning plate and mail for his morning practice in the castle yard.

Feel free to search beneath the blankets.

The remaining wealth was to be used for bribes and gifts, and to hire sellswords if needed. A day passed, then another. Neither septons nor silent sisters were summoned to the bedchamber where King Viserys lay, swollen and rotting. Ravens flew, but not to Dragonstone.

They went instead to Oldtown, to Casterly Rock, to Riverrun, to Highgarden, and to many other lords and knights whom Queen Alicent had cause to think might be sympathetic to her son.

The lords assembled had favored the male claimant over the female by twenty to one, but there had been dissenters, and those same houses were most like to lend Princess Rhaenyra their support should it come to war.

The princess would have the Sea Snake and his fleets, Ser Otto judged, and like as not the other lords of the eastern shores as well: All were lesser powers, save for the Velaryons.

The northmen were a greater concern: Though old Lord Boremund had died, his son Borros was even more belligerent than his father, and the lesser storm lords would surely follow wherever he led.

Whereupon she sent for her second son. On her back rode Prince Aemond Targaryen, with a sapphire in the place of his missing eye. The dungeons under the Red Keep had swallowed up so many men suspected of disloyalty that even the High Septon had begun to wonder at these disappearances, and sent word from the Starry Sept of Oldtown asking after some of the missing. Ser Otto Hightower, as methodical a man as ever served as Hand, wanted more time to make preparations, but Queen Alicent knew they could delay no longer.

Prince Aegon had grown weary of secrecy. The Dragonpit was chosen as the site.

Aegon II had suffered his first defections the night before, when Ser Steffon Darklyn of the Kingsguard had slipped from the city with his squire, two stewards, and four guardsmen. They brought with them a stolen crown: Sunfyre was the name given this dragon of the golden dawn. Munkun tells us the king flew thrice around the city before landing inside the walls of the Red Keep.

A dozen lesser lords, bannermen and vassals to Dragonstone, sat at the black council as well: But the greatest lord to pledge his strength to the princess was Corlys Velaryon of Driftmark.

The lords assembled had favored the male claimant over the female by twenty to one, but there had been dissenters, and those same houses were most like to lend Princess Rhaenyra their support should it come to war. The novella takes its time to describe the fate of every important player in this conflict, and as they keep on dying in most gruesome, heroic, tragic or stupid ways, we soon realize that we are actually witnessing a spectacular end of the old Targaryen dynasty and, more importantly, the end of their supremacy over other houses based on the power of dragons.

Warrior, dragonrider, wielder of Dark Sister - Daemon is almost too fabulous to fit into this short tale. You, my lord?
