House of the Dragon poster features a young Rhaenyra Targaryen


The key art of the House of the Dragon is here. On Wednesday, HBO shared a new poster of the Game of Thrones spin-off, which takes place two centuries before the events featured in the show, to introduce fans to Australian actress Milly Alcock’s Rhaenyra Targaryen, a battling dragon rider for the right to occupy the coveted. Iron Throne during the bloody war nicknamed the “Dance of the Dragons”. She is seen sporting a red dress and a golden cape. It features multiple swords, which appears to be a reference to the Iron Throne. There’s also a glimpse of a ferocious dragon, which will most likely be used by the Targaryens to terrorize the people of the realm of Westeros. Her intense body language and icy gaze unsurprisingly remind us of the fearless Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen (Emily Clarke), from Game of Thrones.
