Conquest & Rebellion: An Animated History of the Seven Kingdoms is a special long-form animated presentation contained in the Histories & Lore videos for Season 7. It has a combined runtime of 43 minutes, but is internally divided up into ten distinct chapters. The video is narrated in-character by Viserys Targaryen, Varys, Petyr Baelish, Euron Greyjoy, Jaime Lannister, and Sansa Stark.

This article is a navigation page, as each of the ten "chapters" is treated as an individual "Histories & Lore" video, each with its own separate article (due to their size: each sub-page has a full transcript, notes, list of appearances, etc.).

The video is somewhat of a successor to the previous long-form Histories & Lore video released in the Season 5 set, a 20 minute video on the Dance of the Dragons (though that video wasn't formally divided up into internal sub-chapters).

Plot overview

Conquest & Rebellion tells the story of the Targaryen Conquest which first unified the Seven Kingdoms, nearly 300 years before the War of the Five Kings, including the founding of King's Landing and creation of the Iron Throne.

The second-to-last chapter goes on to describe the First Dornish War which followed the main phase of the conquest - during which House Martell alone managed to rebel against Targaryen rule.

The final (super-sized) chapter then briefly glosses over the major wars and crises the Targaryen dynasty faced during the next three centuries, to connect them to the present day. It then gives a more detailed recap of the downfall of the Targaryen dynasty in Robert's Rebellion, ending with that state of events as they were at the beginning of the main live-action narrative in Season 1 of Game of Thrones (Robert Baratheon on the throne, Daenerys Targaryen and her brother Viserys living in exile in the Free Cities).
