Matt Smith stars as Prince Daemon Targaryen in the new show, which debuts on the network and its HBO Max streaming service on August 21.

House Of The Dragon is set 200 years before the events of the original Game Of Thrones series and details a civil war within the Targaryen family.

A future generation of the same royal family was represented by Daenerys Targaryen in the previous series.

Although Prince Daemon is seen at the start of the teaser carrying a dragon egg, he doesn’t appear to be the only family member with designs on the throne.

Princess Rhaenyra – who is also played younger by Australian actress Milly Alcock – is first seen as she surveys the sea surrounding the kingdom.

As she watches intently, Lord Corlys Velaryon is heard in voiceover: “What is this brief mortal life but the continuation of the legacy?”

The teaser then hints at the battles to come when a bearded Rhys Ifans is seen in full battle armor.

Back at the court of King Viserys, it’s clear that his daughter Rhaenyra is his designated heir as the heads of the other royal families nod and pledge their loyalty to the Targaryens.

But young Rhaenyra soon receives a warning of the danger lurking for powerful women.

“Men would rather put the kingdom to the torch than see a woman ascend the Iron Throne,” intones Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, cousin of the king and wife of Lord Corlys Velaryon.

Matt is the last face seen in the brief teaser, as he lights up an underpass with a torch.

He looks up from a spot on the ground to see a huge dragon emerge from the darkness, before it releases a ball of fire from its mouth.

House Of The Dragon is a prequel to the hugely popular HBO series Game Of Thrones, which aired on the network from 2011 to 2019.

The series will launch on Monday August 22 on Sky Atlantic and the NOW streaming service in the UK and Ireland.

The series will launch in August later this year
