Why the throne itself is the biggest threat in the house of dragons

There are a few different layers to this idea. In Daenerys’ case, her pursuit of the throne blinded her to the world and the morals that had guided her ambitions. Although she never actually sat on the throne, her drive for power became a corrupting force. But here’s a big difference: when we catch up with her ancestors in the prequel series, the Targaryen dynasty is at the height of its power. Without a doubt, the throne is theirs – they built it decades ago with blood and fire. This time, the conflict is coming from within the house.

Daemon and Rhaenyra both have their eyes on the chair of power, and after the events of episode two, it’s possible that King Viserys (Paddy Considine) will appear with more children to challenge them both. Then there’s the problem of socialites like Corlys and Otto, both of whom try to make their daughters queens by luring them to old Viserys. Only Otto succeeded, and the king found himself a new wife of his choice. But the cost of rejecting Corlys led him to flee to Daemon, and with the second sons forming an alliance, what will that mean for Viserys’ reign?

So, metaphorically, the people’s shared desire for the throne made it a major threat to Targaryen rule. But beyond that, there was also the material damage the throne did to King Viserys. To our knowledge, the ruler of Targaryen has suffered two different wounds since sitting on the throne, and both of his cuts do not appear to have fully healed. So damn metaphors, the Iron Throne is literally killing this dynasty.
