Fire and Blood is a planned complete history of House Targaryen by George R. R. Martin.[1] Fire and Blood is planned for publication after the completion of A Song of Ice and Fire.[2] Before being titled Fire and Blood, the history was jokingly named the GRRMarillion[3] after J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion.

Contents

Thus far, Fire and Blood is known to contain the following texts:

  • The Sons of the Dragon[4]
  • Heirs of the Dragon[5]
  • The Dying of the Dragons[5]
  • Aftermath — The Boy King and His Regents[5]

The "Heirs of the Dragon" is about 17,000 words long. It focuses on the children of Jaehaerys I Targaryen and the succession questions following the deaths of his sons. An abridged version, The Rogue Prince, previously published in the anthology Rogues in 2014, uses the majority of this text.[5]

"The Dying of the Dragons" is an account on the Dance of the Dragons, and roughly 60,000 words in length.[5][N 1] An abridged version of 30,000 words was included in The Princess and the Queen,[3] which was published in the anthology Dangerous Women in 2013.

Additionally, Fire and Blood is known to contain an account on the lives of King Aenys I Targaryen and King Maegor I Targaryen called The Sons of the Dragon, which Martin had read on two occassions, and which is set to be released in the anthology The Book of Swords in 2017.[4]

As of 2014, more than 200,000 words had been written for Fire and Blood.[6] This historical account is said to cover Targaryen history through the reign of Aegon V Targaryen.[7]
