The problem is unleashed after the king, on his deathbed, tells the queen that their son was the one who should rule, something he had seen in his dreams. “He told me he wanted Aegon to be king.”Alicent is heard saying. From there, a madness is unleashed between two sides that want to stay in power. “The door remains closed until we finish our business”orders Otto, the Hand of the King and father of Alicent.

This will start the event known as the “Dance of Dragons”. It is about the civil war unleashed between the green and black sides: the first composed mainly of Alicent, her children, Otto and Ser Criston Cole, the Lord Commander of the Royal Guard; and the second led by Rhaneyra and Daemon together with their descendants and the support of other noble houses such as the Velaryons and the Arryns.
In the next chapter, Aegon II is expected to be proclaimed King of Westeros, which will end up causing excessive violence that will mark a crucial stage in the Targaryen dynasty. The ambition of his grandfather and his mother will lead Aegon to lead a terrifyingly violent battle against his kind.
