It’s time for Game of Thrones fans to get excited as HBO has finally released images from House of the Dragon. House of the Dragon, is a prequel to GOT which is based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire and Blood and is set 300 years before GOT. 

The show revolves around the story of House of Targaryen and one of the pictures which have been released showcases Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Prince Daemon Targaryen, played by Emma D'Arcy and Matt Smith. 

In the first picture, you can see both the characters in the same bright blonde hair, very similar to their descendant, Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen.

HBO in a statement described the new characters in the picture as, “Rhaenyra Targaryen: The king’s first-born child, she is of pure Valyrian blood, and she is a dragon rider. Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything… but she was not born a man."

“Daemon Targaryen: The younger brother to King Viserys and heir to the throne. A peerless warrior and a dragon rider, Daemon possesses the true blood of the dragon. But it is said that whenever a Targaryen is born, the gods toss a coin in the air."

In the second image, we can see Olivia Cook and Rhys Ifans who play Otto Hightower and his daughter Alicent Hightower respectively. In the show, Otto is the Hand of the King to the present ruler in the power of Westeros, King Viserys Targaryen.

According to HBO’s statement, “Ser Otto loyally and faithfully serves both his king and his realm. As the Hand sees it, the greatest threat to the realm is the king's brother, Daemon, and his position as heir to the throne."

The description also said, “Alicent is the most comely woman in the Seven Kingdoms. She was raised in the Red Keep, in King's Landing, close to the king and his innermost circle; she possesses both a courtly grace and a keen political acumen."

In this image, we can see Steve Toussaint who is playing the role of Lord Corlys of House Velaryon, known as the Sea Snake. Corlys and his whole family are said to be from a Valyrian bloodline as old as House Targaryen.

"As 'The Sea Snake,' the most famed nautical adventurer in the history of Westeros, Lord Corlys built his house into a powerful seat that is even richer than the Lannisters and that claims the largest navy in the world," says the description.

The show is said to release in the year 2022 on HBO Max and we are already excited. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below!
