After doing small roles in television series, Milly Alcock finally landed a breakout role as young Rhaenyra Targaryen in HBO’s House of the Dragon. The show delves into the events over a century before Game of Thrones takes place. It is quite poetic how both shows depict a female’s struggle to claim the throne as her birthright. Male heirs, however vain or insane, are presented with the throne on a silver platter. Female heirs, however competent and deserving, have to fight tooth and nail to prove themselves worthy of ruling the Seven Kingdoms.

Rhaenyra Targaryen was the first woman to sit on the throne, albeit for a short period of time. Daenerys Targaryen gets inspired by her as she ventures westward to retake the throne from bickering Lannisters and Baratheons.
