The first spinoff of Game of Thrones debuts Sunday, August 21st on HBO, as it puts the spotlight on House Targaryen. House of the Dragon takes place 175 years before the events in Games of Thrones, in the century after Aegon the Conqueror first united the Seven Kingdoms. The Targaryens were at the height of their power and ruled defiantly over Westeros.

Newcomers also have a chance to explore the world of Westeros, with the entire first season of Game of Thrones available free as well.

Matt Smith plays Daemon Targaryen on House of the Dragon, and he recently revealed how he supports his ancestor, Daenerys Targaryen, whe she transformed into the Mad Queen in the final Game of Thrones episodes.
"I backed her," Smith told ComicBook.com. "I backed her all the way." Daemon Targaryan and Daenerys Targaryen seem to share viewpoints in their belonging on the throne and, at times, the means to get claim their spot. Game of Thrones saw Daenerys spiral into madness quickly late in the series, whereas House of the Dragon will quickly showcase the unpredictable nature of Smith's Daemon Targaryen.
