Rhaenyra Targaryen’s aunt, Princess Rhaenys was once in line for succession to the Iron Throne. Eve Best, who will be portraying the role in House of The Dragon, recently talked to Entertainment Weekly and explained how patriarchy plays an important role in House of The Dragon.

Best said, “Effectively, it’s about the disillusionment of the patriarchy, of this system that has been going and going for hundreds and hundreds of years. Rhaenys’ relationship with Rhaenyra is very complicated. There’s an element of mentorship. There’s also an element of other things that go along with that, potentially friendship or sympathy. At the same time, there’s all kinds of other, much darker things. Especially at the beginning, I think Rhaenys feels that [Rhaenyra] needs some taking-down a peg or two.”
