Ridden by Rhaenyra Targaryen, the yellow-scaled female dragon Syrax is known to have given birth to one of the last dragons in Westeros.
The prequel House of the Dragon depicts the Targaryen dynasty at the absolute peak of its power, with more than 15 dragons under their yoke. Most empires – real or imagined – crumble from such heights. In the case of the Targaryens, their slow fall begins almost 193 years before the events of Game of Thrones, when King Viserys Targaryen breaks with a century of tradition by naming his daughter Rhaenyra heiress to the Iron Throne. But when Viserys begets a son, the court is shocked to see that Rhaenyra retains her status as heiress, and the seeds of discord take hold throughout the kingdom.
