Game of Thrones – Valyria, Dragons, and The Doom

History and Lore Valyria and the Dragons

HBO shared a video today that was originally released as a bonus feature from the Game of Thrones Season 1 Blu-ray. The video is narrated by Harry Lloyd (Viserys Targaryen), and touches on the history of the Smoking Sea, Valyrian culture, dragons, and the cataclysmic event known as the Doom. Of course those of you that watch the series or read the books are well aware that no one is safe, let alone an entire race of people like the Valyrians. In fact, HBO is taking the mantra that no one is safe a step further and looks to surprise book readers in Game of Thrones Season 5.

In an interview with Showbiz411, George R. R. Martin said, “People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy. So everybody better be on their toes. David and D.B. (David Benioff and D.B. Weiss co-creators of ‘Game Of Thrones) are even bloodier than I am.”

Game of Thrones Season 5 premieres April 12th only on HBO.
