Aegon's Conquest is the foundational event that sets up the interim period discussed in the podcast episodes, as Aegon and his sisters Visenya and Rhaenys used their dragons to subjugate the existing kingdoms and bring them under the rule of House Targaryen.

The podcast episodes 'First Blood (and Fire)' and 'The Dragon's Interim' provide context and details around Aegon's conquest efforts and the aftermath, including the attempts to bring Dorne into the realm and the rule of Aegon and his sisters in the early years of their reign.
