The stories take place about 90 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and it serves to explore more Westeros’s territories and histories, discussing pivotal events such as the Blackfyre Rebellion–a civil war, once again, between the Targaryens that erupted when Daemon Blackfyre, a bastard son of King Aegon IV Targaryen, claimed his older, true born brother Daeron II Targaryen’s throne.

According to certain sources, throughout the tales, Dunk sets himself at odds with scheming royals, enters a trial by combat, and moves closer and closer to fulfilling his destiny to become a member of the King’s guard.
