Viserys TargaryenEdit

Viserys Targaryen bitterly recalls the treachery of the Usurper Robert Baratheon putting an end to the Targaryen dynasty.

King Robert Baratheon's perspectiveEdit

King Robert Baratheon opens up by saying "Rebellion!. The crimes of House Targaryen were completely dumb to be unanswered. Houses Arryn led by Lord Jonny Jon Arryn, Stark led by Lord Eddard "Ned" Stark and Baratheon led by King Robert Baratheon son of deceased father Lord Stefan Baratheon united to overthrow the "cursed dragon kings" and his loyalist houses for House Targaryen. While Lord Jonny Jon Arryn and Lord Eddard "Ned" Stark arranged an 2 fold alliance with Lord Hoster Tully of House Tully at Riverrun Castle capital of The Riverlands (For Your Information Lysa Tully now Lysa Arryn married with Lord Jonny Jon Arryn during Mad King's reign & Catelyn Tully now called Catelyn Stark married with Lord Eddard "Ned" Stark also during Mad King's reign), King Robert Baratheon called the banners of Storm's End capital in The Stormlands to ride in force alongside Arryns & Starks against the Mad King Aerys and his followers to which King Robert Baratheon revels in the memories of the battles.

Their first battle called Battle of Summerhall occurred at Summerhall (which FYI King Aegon the 5th Unlikely Targaryen tried to hatch any dragon eggs so that he can bring the fiery beasts back in but ended up forming Tragedy at Summerhall giving birth to Prince Rhaegar Targaryen), where Robert faced the loyalist houses and won three victories in a single day also he sweet talked the remaining 2 after 1 of 3 houses' sons swore oath to him after which King Robert Baratheon curses as he looks back at that a glorious day. Afterwards , they tried to do Battle of Ashford at Ashford Castle in The Reach, but Lord Mace Tyrell with vanguard Lord Randyll Tarly beat them back. King Robert Baratheon's force had to regroup and was pursued north by the army led by Aerys' hand Lord John Connington after Owen "The Chuckler" Merryweather went into exile. They took refuge in the town Stoney Sept in The Riverlands. When the Targaryen army entered the town, the local sept's bells tolled, signaling the townsfolk of the coming battle but also warning people to stay inside. This was now known as War of the Bells. As the soldiers of House Targaryen searched house by house for Robert, the combined armies of Eddard "Ned" Stark and the Tullys led by Lord Hoster Tully swept into Stoney Sept. King Robert Baratheon again looks back with excited nostalgia to that day and that they overwhelmed the forces of House Targaryen and sent them scampering back to King's Landing in The Crownlands. (Meantime the Hand Lord John "Griff" Connington got exiled then died after drinking poison. With him exiled and dead his next Hand Lord Carlton Chelsted was once Master of Coin but upon hearing that his previous hand Lord John "Griff" Connington died  he succeeds him as Aerys' next Hand when he took on Wildfire plot a stupid idea for burning the city but after his King failed to realize this wildfire plot is very stupid he got burned alive. With that guy dead his next Hand Grand Master of Alchemists Guild Lord Rossart who completely burned Lord Rickard Stark earlier he decides to fulfill that plan after Chelsted's death but he got sliced to death by Ser Jaime Lannister then he stabbed him through the heart from the rear.)

His son, Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, whom Robert shamed him for starting the war, finally emerged and assembled his own army commanded by her uncle Prince Lewyn Nymeros Martell father of current son Prince Doran Nymeros Martell. King Robert Baratheon considers that the Mad King must have been pissing himself at that moment. The next war that would decide the fate of the Seven Kingdoms took place at the crossing of the Green Fork of The Trident in a war now called War of The Trident. Prince Rhaegar Targaryen commanded a royal host of some forty thousand soldiers. Robert Baratheon's forces where outnumbered by nearly five thousand men except it didn't work the loyalists were fresh but the rebels were battle-hardened and had, according to Robert Baratheon, justice on their side. As the battle raged around them King Robert Baratheon faced Prince Rhaegar Targaryen in the ford of the river which will be called Ruby Ford. King Robert Baratheon remembers fighting with the fury of ten men, raining blow after blow upon the stupid Prince Rhaegar Targaryen before burying his warhammer right in his chest. The hit or destruction was so crazy hard the rubies of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen's armor broke free and were flung into the stream. So with the "scum" Prince Rhaegar Targaryen dead at age 20 and the royal army completely shattered, the rebels' next move was to make for King's Landing in The Crownlands, but King Robert Baratheon sustained wounds in battle and was unable to ride on. He sent his next guy Lord Eddard "Ned" Stark to head for King's Landing to answer for their stupid crimes.

King Viserys 3rd Targaryen's perspectiveEdit

The Targaryens, blood of the dragon, and the last of Old Valyria were admired by their subjects, and admired as the greatest dynasty in the history of the western world for nearly 300 years. But the peace and prosperity of nearly three centuries of Targaryen rule were shattered by "the Usurper", Robert Baratheon, and his band of traitors.

House Baratheon owed its very existence to the TargaryensAegon's Conq like before when he narrated the first 2 shorts.

The royal army was then shattered at the Battle of the Trident. It was there that valiant Prince Rhaegar Targaryen met Robert Baratheon in single combat with sword but the gods betrayed him, and he perished by the Usurper's warhammer. Earlier he also narrated the Field of Fire which ended the Andals, the Battle of the Trident seemed to herald the end of the Dragon Kings.

When word reached King's Landing in The Crownlands of Rhaegar's death, Aerys moved to protect Viserys, as he was the surviving heir to the Iron Throne. He sent Viserys to Dragonstone Island and resided in the capital of Dragonstone Island Dragonstone Castle, along with his mother, Queen Rhaella Targaryen, who was pregnant with child who will be known as Queen Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen. But as his father and king prepared to defend his throne to the bitter end, little did he know of the horrors and betrayals that awaited him and their family House Targaryen.
