As the first century of the Targaryen dynasty came to a close
the health of the Old King, Jaehaerys, was failing.
In those days, House Targaryen stood at the height of its strength
with ten adult dragons under its yoke.
No power in the world could stand against it.
King Jaehaerys reigned over nearly 60 years of peace and prosperity
but tragedy had claimed both his sons
leaving his succession in doubt.
So, in the year 101
the Old King called a Great Council to choose an heir.
Over a thousand lords made the journey to Harrenhal.
Fourteen succession claims were heard but only two were truly considered.
Princess Rhaenys Targaryen, the King's eldest descendant
and her younger cousin, Prince Viserys Targaryen
the King's eldest male descendant.
It is declared by all lords paramount
and lords vassal of the Seven Kingdoms
that Prince Viserys Targaryen be made Prince of Dragonstone!
Rhaenys, a woman, would not inherit the Iron Throne.
The lords instead chose Viserys
Jaehaerys called the Great Council
to prevent a war being fought over his succession.
For he knew the cold truth.
The only thing that could tear down the House of the Dragon was itself.
欢迎回家 公主 相信你这趟旅途很愉快
Welcome back, Princess. I trust your ride was pleasant.
Try not to look too relieved, ser.
I am relieved.
Every time that golden beast brings you back unspoiled
it saves my head from a spike.
Syrax is growing quickly. She'll soon be as large as Caraxes.
That's almost large enough to saddle two.
I believe I'm quite content as a spectator, thank you.
You know I don't like you to go flying while I'm in this condition.
You don't like me to go flying while you're in any condition.
－陛下 －早 阿莉森
- Your Grace. - Good morrow, Alicent.
Did you sleep? - I slept.
- How long?
I don't need mothering, Rhaenyra.
Well, here you are, surrounded by attendants all focused on the babe.
Someone has to attend to you.
You will lie in this bed soon enough, Rhaenyra.
This discomfort is how we serve the realm.
I'd rather serve as a knight and ride to battle and glory.
We have royal wombs, you and I.
The childbed is our battlefield.
We must learn to face it with a stiff lip.
Now take a bath. You stink of dragon.
So, I said to him, "Well, I believe you might be looking up the wrong end."
The growing alliance among the Free Cities has taken to styling itself the Triarchy.
They have massed on Bloodstone
and are presently ridding the Stepstones of its pirate infestation.
Well, that sounds suspiciously like good news, Lord Corlys.
A man called Craghas Drahar
has styled himself the prince-admiral of this Triarchy.
They call him the Crabfeeder
due to his inventive methods of punishing his enemies.
And are we meant to weep for dead pirates?
－不 陛下… －雷妮拉 你迟到了
- No, Your Grace. - Rhaenyra, you're late.
The King's cupbearer must not be late. - Leaves people wanting for cups.
- I was visiting Mother.
陛下 根据戴蒙王子的建议 国王已经投入大量资金
Hey, Your Grace, at Prince Daemon's urging the crown has invested significant capital
in the re-training and re-equipping of his City Watch.
I thought you might urge your brother to fill his seat on the council
and provide an assessment of his progress as commander of the Watch.
Do you think Daemon is distracted by his present tasks?
And that his thoughts and energies are occupied?
Well, one would hope so, considering the associated costs.
Then let us all consider your gold well-invested, Lord Beesbury.
I would urge that you not allow this Triarchy much latitude
in the Stepstones, Your Grace.
If those shipping lanes should fall, it will beggar our ports.
The crown has heard your report, Lord Corlys
and takes it under advisement.
陛下 那我们该讨论 继承人的比武大赛一事吗
Shall we discuss the Heir's Tournament, Your Grace?
I would be delighted.
Will the maesters' name day prediction hold, Mellos?
国王陛下 您必须了解 这些事情都只是预估而已
You must understand that these things are mere estimations, my King
but we have all been poring over the moon charts
and we feel that our forecast is as accurate as it can be.
The cost of the tournament is not negligible.
Perhaps we might delay until the child is in hand?
Most of the lords and knights are certainly on their way to King's Landing already.
- To turn them back now... - The tourney will take the better part of a week.
Before the games are over, my son will be born
and the whole realm will celebrate.
We have no way of predicting the sex of the child.
no maester's capable of rendering an opinion free of conditions, are they now?
There's a boy in the Queen's belly. I know it.
And my heir will soon put all of this damnable hand-wringing to rest himself.
He passed through the Red Keep's gates at first light.
Does my father know he's here?
- No. - Good.
Gods be good.
It's all right, ser.
I bought you something.
Do you know what it is?
It's Valyrian steel.
Like Dark Sister.
you and I both own a small piece of our ancestry.
- Did you read it? - Of course, I read it.
When Princess Nymeria arrived in Dorne who did she take to husband?
A man. What was his name?
If you answer with "Lord Something," Septa Marlow will be furious.
She's funny when she's furious.
You're always like this when you're worried.
You're worried your father is about to overshadow you with a son.
I only worry for my mother.
I hope for my father that he gets a son.
As long as I can recall, it's all he's wanted.
