Milly Alcock as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in House of the Dragon

Following the premiere of the first episode of Game of Thrones spin-off, House of the Dragon, HBO have shared a new trailer for the series that teases what’s in store for us in the episodes ahead.

The prequel series finds the Targaryen dynasty at the absolute apex of its power, with more than 15 dragons under their yoke. Most empires—real and imagined—crumble from such heights. In the case of the Targaryens, their slow fall begins almost 193 years before the events of Game of Thrones, when King Viserys Targaryen breaks with a century of tradition by naming his daughter Rhaenyra heir to the Iron Throne. But when Viserys later fathers a son, the court is shocked when Rhaenyra retains her status as his heir, and seeds of division sow friction across the realm.
