House of the Dragon Poster Teases Emma D’Arcy’s Princess Targaryen

HBO keeps the fire (and blood) in the hearts of fans with a new poster for Dragon Housethe highly anticipated spin-off prequel to game of thrones. The poster focuses on Emma d’Arcy as Rhaenyra Targaryen, one of the Dragon Riders fighting for the Iron Throne during the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.

The poster shows Rhaenyra Targaryen with a red robe, golden cape, and a crow, standing among dozens of iron swords scattered around a room. The blades refer to the Iron Throne, the most powerful seat in all of Westeros, traditionally held by the royalty of House Targaryen. Behind Rhaenyra, we can see one of the mighty dragons used by the Targeryans to subjugate the people of Westeros. The first trailer for the spin-off prequel had a disappointing number of dragons, so it’s nice to see HBO focusing its marketing campaign on the scaly creatures, the real stars we want to watch next August.


In the upcoming series, Rhaenyra is a dragon rider who must prove that she deserves the name Targaryen simply because she was born female. Unfortunately, she will be caught in the middle of a civil war that also involves other Targeryan nobles. Dragon House also stars Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen, a man who struggles to hold the throne due to his kindness. The series also includes Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, a brutal Targaryen next in line to take the throne.
