A new batch of House of The Dragon images has arrived offering a first look at the Great Council of Harrenhal with King Jaehaerys Targaryen (Michael Carter) surrounded by the claimants for the Iron throne. The hi-res stills has Game of Thrones fans and George R. R. Martin followers sighing in relief looking at the attention to detail in Rhaenys Velaryon (Eve Best) dress robe, impressive hair wigs and the general design structure of Westeros.
House of The Dragons explores a story that took place 200 years before the Games of Thrones events but will center on the battle for the Iron Throne that divided the Targaryen Empire. However, unlike the story told in George R. R. Martin‘s Fire and Blood, the upcoming series will provide an “objective account” of the historical battle that shook Westeros. In contrast, the source material tells it as a “subjective account” on the lines of Bible.
GOT veterans that have read the Dance of the Dragons seem more excited for Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock) and Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey) relationship. One image featuring the two characters in a dramatic confrontation has fans thrilled to see their complex bond explored. Some also indicated Aemond “One Eye” Targaryen is in the background.

“These two women are at once credited and also blamed with this particular war,” said House of the Dragons co-showrunner and co-creator Ryan Condal. Because the history is written by men, we were really interested in the dynamic forces that a certain medieval level of innate chauvinism puts on the two women.”
The above-mentioned actors will portray the younger version of Princess Rhaenyra and Alicent Hightower while Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke slip into the adult version of the roles.
In addition, some are already comparing D’Arcy’s Rhaenyra to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). But Rhaenyra’s dragon syrax is yet to be revealed, as are the rest of the dragons. Still, a teasing shot of Daemon Targaryen, one of the heir to the Iron throne holding an egg shell. Speaking of who, an image of Daemon donning his dragon Caraxes-styled armor. Smith also spoke with EW in detail about the relationship Daemon bares with Caraxes.
House of the Dragon also stars Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon, Rhys Ifans as Otta Hightower, the Hand of The King, Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen and Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria.
House of the Dragon will release on August 21 on HBO.
