One of the main characters of The House of the Dragon, Aegon II is coming with everything in the 2nd phase of the series, as highlighted by the teaser.
In the teaser for Episode 6 of the Game of Thrones spinoff series, Ty Tennant’s look as a young Aegon II was revealed. Check out:
It is worth remembering that, in addition to David Tennant‘s son, Tom Glynn-Carney will also play Aegon II in House of the Dragon, the latter being responsible for bringing the adult version of the character to life.
In addition to having both young and adult versions of the series, Aegon II also appeared as a child in the first few episodes. He is the eldest son of King Viserys I by his second wife Alicent Hightower .
The screenplay and production of The House of the Dragon were in charge of George RR Martin and Ryan Condal.
Paddy Considine (Blitz) as King Viserys Targaryen, Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Olivia Cooke (Player #1) as Alicent Hightower, and Emma D’Arcy (Truth Seekers) as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen are in the main cast.
Based on the book Fire & Blood , the series serves as a spin-off of Game of Thrones that chronicles the history of the civil war generated by the dispute for the Iron Throne, better known as the Dance of the Dragons.
Set over 200 years before the events of the original series, we follow the civil war that unfolds as half-brothers Aegon II and Rhaenyra vie for the throne after the death of their father, Viserys I.
Rhaenyra is the eldest daughter, however, Aegon is the son of a second marriage, which leads to growing tension between two Targaryen clans over who has the true right to the throne.
As described in the main series, at the time when the Targaryen family ruled the seven kingdoms, the house was known for its imposing dragons, which, like the family, ended up practically extinct after the internal conflict.
Now entering its 2nd phase, The House of the Dragon will knock on the door of the Dance of Dragons events, as highlighted by the teaser of episode 6.
The episode titled “The Princess and the Queen” airs next Sunday, September 25th. He will be responsible for heating up the clash between Alicent and Rhaenyra .
It is in episode 6 of The House of the Dragon that we will see the young summer of Aegon II on screen for the first time.
