Another question raised in the video is of Alicent Hightower’s sons. We see Aegon II and Aemond along with their sister in House of the Dragon seasons 1 and 2. However, their fourth sibling seems to be suspiciously missing from the picture. Even Olivia Cooke and Phia Saban claim that they don’t know where Daeron is. There were some rumors that we might see him in the upcoming season. But, it will be pretty tricky to explain his absence to date.

One of the most googled questions that the cast of House of the Dragon answered was if House Hightower is related to House Tyrell. The latter house played a crucial role in Game of Thrones where Margaery Tyrell marries into the House Lannister and becomes Queen. Olivia Cooke, the actress who plays Alicent Hightower answers this question and reveals that House Hightower is pledged to House Tyrell.

Moreover, in the book, it is detailed how Margaery’s mother was a Hightower. So, the two ladies of Westeros are separated by a few generations. Margaery Tyrell is a descendant of Alicent Hightower.

What historical civil war is House of the Dragon based on?

For those who did not know, Martin was inspired by some real-life events while creating the narrative for House of the Dragon. The epic Dance of the Dragons or the civil war that plagues House Targaryen in the show is based on a war called Anarchy. Cooke tries to answer the question. She claims it’s based on the Battle of the Andals in medieval times but it turns out to be incorrect.
