We have finally returned to the Seven Kingdoms with the second season of The dragon house, premiered on Max on June 17. The new installment of the prequel to Game of Thrones, born from the novels of George R.R. Martin, addresses the civil war between the Targaryens for the Iron Throne.

The end of the first season set the pieces for the Dance of Dragons, with Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) and Alicent (Olivia Cooke) looking for allies after the death of Viserys (Paddy Considine). In the last episode, Rhaenyra, the rightful heir, sent her son Lucerys Velaryon (Elliot Grihault) to Storm’s End to ensure the loyalty of House Baratheon.

The young man engaged in a confrontation with Aemond (Ewan Mitchell) on the back of his dragons, but both lost control of their winged beasts and Vhagar, Aemond’s creature, ended up devouring their opponents. The death of Lucerys at the hands of her uncle marked the first murder between the Greens and the Blacks, triggering what promises to be the bloodiest and most violent war within the Targaryen line.

As readers of Fire and blood, the book on which the series is based, this second season the conflict will bring new characters to the Seven Kingdoms, among them a Stark who will play a fundamental role in the battle. We refer to Cregan Stark, interpreted by Tom Taylor (The Dark Tower), whom we have already seen in the first episode with Jacaerys Velaryon (Harry Collett) at the Wall, north of Winterfell.

Taylor is not the only addition in the second season of The dragon house, which also features Clinton Liberty as Addam of Hull, Jamie Kenna as Ser Alfred Broome, Kieran Bew as Hugh, Tom Bennett as Ulf and Vincent Regan as Ser Rickard Thorne. However, Cregan Stark is an essential piece in the Targaryen battle against the Hightower.

Who is Cregan Stark?

First of all, let’s remember that the first episode of the first season of the dragon house He already brought us a Stark, Rickon Stark (David Hounslow) Lord of Winterfell who came to King’s Landing to swear allegiance to the Targaryens and ratify Viserys’ decision to name Rhaenyra as the rightful heir to the throne.

The second season brings us Lord Cregan Stark, also known as Wolf of the North, son of Rickon and new Lord of Winterfell after the death of his father and the regency of his uncle Bennard Stark.

At the end of the first season, while Lucerys was heading to Storm’s End, her older brother Jaecerys flew to the Vale of Arryn and the North to secure the support of Jeyne Arryn and Cregan Stark in the war. Thanks to Fire and blood We know that Jace manages to strengthen alliances with both Jeyne and Cregan Stark, with whom he forges a close friendship.

When Jace meets Cregan on the pages, he too has had to fight for his place at the helm of Winterfell. At 21 years old, he has just been widowed by his first wife (Lady Arra Norrey) and has been in command of him for three years as Guardian of the North after rebelling against his uncle. In this context, his bond with Jace is born, with whom he hunts, drinks and trains before swearing in blood for his brotherhood.

According to Grand Master Munkun in his true story, The affinity between the two may also be due to the fact that Cregan sees in Jace a brother that he lost a few years before and would have been the same age as the young Velaryon at that time. Likewise, during this period, Jacaerys would have had a love relationship with Sara Snow, sister of her good friend.

If you prefer not to know more about the future of The dragon house, We recommend that you stop reading because there are spoilers from the book ahead. Fire and blood (via CBR).

Now, as we said, we can confirm that Jace will get the support of the Starks, something essential for the Black side in the face of the Dance of the Dragons.

Rhaenyra’s son and Cregan will reach an agreement in what is known as the pact of Ice and Fire, in which Jacaerys gives his word to marry his first daughter to Cregan’s son. The skilled and intimidating swordsman, for his part, will help the Targaryens together with his Winter Wolves to win key battles in their fight for the Iron Throne.

Right at the end of the Dance of the Dragons, Cregan will play a pivotal role in the accession of Aegon III, son of Rhaenyra, to the throne.

Waiting to know more about the character in The dragon house, the creator Ryan Condal has advanced in EW: “He is very powerful. Everyone competes for his army. “He’s a little bit younger than Ned Stark was, so it’s interesting to see the young wolf, the young Mr. Stark, and how he acts in the world, the burden that’s on his shoulders as Warden of the North.”
