The network has launched a new trailer of ‘House of Dragon’. The prequel will illustrate a take on the past, nearly two centuries before the events of ‘Game of Thrones’. The series will characterize the domination of the Targaryen dynasty.
The short teaser was what feels like a moment of reminiscence for fans as it featured clips from the hit series ‘Game of Thrones’. It comprised segments like the drawn table at Storm’s End that looked like a map and also showcased the Great Hall at King’s Landing. Fans have expressed their delight for the now-released prequel.

Also in the latest trailer, it has Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, and Paddy Considine portray powerful roles. King Viserys I Targaryen, the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, occupies the Iron Throne and the next in line for the throne is Prince Daemon.
