The Iron Throne to Books' Original Description is Reinstated in a New 'House of the Dragon' Image ...

House of the Dragon, HBO's upcoming series, is getting grander by the day! Empire Magazine has shared a new image that depicts the Iron Throne as a never-before-seen-before scale.

Martin described the Aegon the Conqueror's enormous, hulking, black and twisted throne, as well as the high seat from which the king looks down on everyone in the court in a previous blog post titled "The Real Iron Throne." The new image by Game of Thrones vet Ryan Condal shows the Targaryen dynasty at its height of wealth and power.

The prequel will explore the Targaryens' slow decline starting with King Viserys breaking the rules by naming his older daughter Rhaenyra his heir. Although he later fathers a son, the throne remains with Viserys' brother, who contests the claim.

The Targaryens took a back seat in the original series, which was based on Martins A Song of Ice and Fire, because he was the sole dragon bearer for the entire Westeros clan. Later, it was revealed that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was more a Stark than a Targaryen.

The next series of HBO will air on August 21. While you wait, check out the new image, trailer, and full synopsis of House Of The Dragon below:

The Targaryen dynasty is at an all-time high, with more than 15 dragons under their yoke, when King Viserys Targaryen names his daughter Rhaenyra his heir, and seeds of conflict sown across the kingdom. "In the case of the Targaryens, their slow decline begins almost 193 years before Game of Thrones," says the court.
