The legacy of the house of Fire and Blood is set to unravel as Disney+ Hotstar brings you the much-awaited HBO series, House of the Dragon, starting August 22, with new episodes dropping every Monday at 6:30 AM IST. Based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire and Blood, the 10-episode series is the remarkable, turbulent story of the House of Targaryen, set 200 years before the events that captivated global audiences in Game of Thrones. The series is a gripping saga that takes us deep into the extraordinary world of Westeros and explores the Targaryen family – the all-powerful dragon riders who are the seemingly invincible rulers of the seven kingdoms. Bitter rivalries, jealousy, lust, the quest for power, and betrayal will tear the Targaryens apart and threaten to destroy a dynasty that has ruled unchallenged for a century.
House Of The Dragon: From Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen to Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra, meet 9 key characters of the Game Of Thrones prequel.
Directed by Miguel Sapochnik, Clare Kilner, Geeta Vasant Patel, and Greg Yaitanes, with George R. R. Martin, Ryan Condal, and Miguel Sapochnik along with Sara Hess, Vince Gerardis, and Ron Schmidt, helming as executive producers. Even though the series is a prequel to Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon has an individual storyline with new characters played by an impressive cast, including Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Paddy Considine, Olivia Cooke, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, and Sonoya Mizuno.
Here’s a guide to the main characters in House of the Dragon, and where their allegiances may lie.
PRINCESS RHAENYRA TARGARYEN (PLAYED BY EMMA D’Arcy and MILLIE ALCOCK)
The king’s first-born child. She is of pure Valyrian blood, and she is a dragonrider. Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything… but she was not born a man.
