Along with the official teaser trailer, HBO also released 9 new official character posters yesterday. These include:

Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy)

Rhaenyra Targaryen is the eldest child of King Viserys I and only one surviving from his first marriage. Viserys names her as his successor and moulds her to be a ruler right from her childhood. Her claims are challenged after her father’s death, when Alicent pushes her son Aegon II Targaryen for the Iron Throne. She is one of the main characters and will play a major role in House of the Dragon.

He is known to have engaged in a number of amorous relationships, outside of his marriage with Rhaenyra. However, he supports his wife and niece Rhaenyra during the civil war.

Criston Cole (Fabien Frankel)

Criston Cole is the greatest knight in Westeros at the time of Dance of the Dragons. Unlike most knights, who prefer using a blade, Cole’s favourite weapon of choice is a morningstar.

Mysaria (Sonoya Mizuno)

Mysaria of Lys, also known as Lady Misery. She first appears as a lowlife dancer in King’s Landing, eventually becoming Daemon Targaryen’s love interest. She becomes the unofficial “mistress of whispers”, and keeps tabs on all the ongoing chit chat between members of both the opposing parties. Though she doesn’t directly participate in the civil war, she operates from behind the curtains and will be important to the story of House of The Dragon.
