HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon will explore the bloody Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of Dragons. Inspired by George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood, the story will show how the most powerful family in Westeros almost tore itself apart in a war known as the Dance of Dragons.

The series, which premiered on August 21, promises to show at least 17 dragons throughout its seasons. Here is a guide to the most significant and mightiest dragons which will likely appear in House of the Dragon, and their riders.
