Sorting by House of the Dragon’s many new child characters

Time jumps are vital to how House of the Dragon is telling its story a few tumultuous second in Targaryen historical past. None of these time jumps are as necessary because the 10-year leap episode 6 takes. While a lot has modified in King’s Landing within the time the present skipped, one shift that has the potential to confuse audiences is the addition of so many new characters, within the type of the youngsters of Alicent, Rhaenyra, and Daemon.

To allow you to maintain observe of all six kids that appeared this episode (together with 5 new ones), right here’s a breakdown of Rhaenyra and Alicent’s respective households:

Rhaenyra’s kids

Jacaerys Velaryon (Leo Hart)

Jace is the oldest son of Rhaenyra and Laenor, or perhaps of Rhaenyra and Ser Harwin Strong, relying on who you ask. Jace is at present the inheritor to the throne after his mom, and a robust child regardless of solely being someplace round 7 years outdated. In this episode we see him nearly beat Aegon Targaryen in a bout with wood swords, regardless of Aegon’s benefits in dimension and age.

Lucerys Velaryon (Harvey Sadler)

Also often known as Luke, Lucerys Velaryon is Rhaenyra’s second baby and is usually unremarkable on this episode. He does occur to bear a placing resemblance to Ser Harwin Strong, his mom’s closest good friend and notably not her husband. Unfortunately for all concerned, this “coincidence” is observed by actually everybody in King’s Landing, drawing Luke’s legitimacy into query.

Joffrey Velaryon (a child)

Born firstly of episode 6, Joffrey is Rhaenyra’s youngest baby, for now, and solely a child — and subsequently fairly unremarkable on his personal phrases. He can also be seemingly a bastard fathered by Ser Harwin Strong. Joffrey is known as in honor of Laenor’s useless lover, who was overwhelmed to loss of life at their wedding ceremony by Rhaenyra’s former lover, so there’s so much occurring there.

Alicent’s kids

Aegon Targaryen (Ty Tennant)

Aegon is among the kids who was not new to this episode, as we had seen somewhat of him earlier than the time skip. He is the oldest son of Viserys Targaryen and Alicent Hightower. Anyone who is aware of even somewhat about Targaryen historical past is aware of Aegon is a daring title to offer a toddler. The title of the Westerosi dynasty’s first king, Aegon all the time carries with it a sure implication of earned (or conquered) kingship. Unfortunately, not like the conqueror, the model of Aegon we see on this episode is usually only a bizarre, spoiled brat.

Aemond Targaryen (Leo Ashton)

Aegon’s youthful brother, Aemond, is Alicent’s second son. Think of him because the Prince Daemon of this household, besides with none of ambition, rashness, or martial prowess that make Daemon who he’s — a minimum of not but. As we see on this episode, Aemond doesn’t have a dragon, a proven fact that he spends a lot of his younger life very self-conscious about.

Helaena Targaryen (Evie Allen)

The second oldest of Alicent’s kids, Helaena is a wierd woman who, on this episode, we see enjoying with a big bug and counting its legs.

Daemon’s kids
