Who are the members from Game Of Thrones and House Of The Dragon? | The Sun

THE Game Of Thrones prequel House Of The Dragon has graced our screens.

The show focuses on the ancestors of the royal family of dragon riders and the Dance of Dragons civil war.

Who are the members of the Hightower family tree?

Ser Otto Hightower

Ser Otto Hightower is played by Welsh actor and musician Rhys Ifans in the new Game of Thrones prequel.

The character is the Hand of the King to King Viserys I Targaryen.

He is brother to Hobert Hightower as well as the father of Lady Alicent Hightower and Gwayne Hightower.

However, he is a rival of Prince Daemon Targaryen.

HBO's description of Ser Otto Hightower is: "The Hand of the King, Ser Otto loyally and faithfully serves both his king and his realm. As the Hand sees it, the greatest threat to the realm is the king’s brother, Daemon, and his position as heir to the throne."

While we learn in House of the Dragon that Otto’s wife passed away, we don't know much about her.

Lady Alicent Hightower

Lady Alicent Hightower is played by Olivia Cooke and Emily Carey in House of the Dragon.

The character was raised in the Red Keep and is part of King Viserys I Targaryen’s inner circle.

She is the daughter of Ser Otto Hightower and the sister of Gwayne Hightower.

HBO describe her as: "She’s the daughter of Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King, and the most comely woman in the Seven Kingdoms.

"She was raised in the Red Keep, close to the king and his innermost circle; she possesses both a courtly grace and a keen political acumen."

Alicent is known for being one of the most attractive women in the Seven Kingdoms which is important due to the sheer amount of competition.

She has a political mind which is what she needs to survive.

However, she is not in favour of either Daemon or Rhaenyra when it comes to who should talk the throne next, despite she and Rhaenyra growing up as childhood best friends.
