House of the Dragon: Who plays Rhaenys Targaryen?
House of the Dragon‘s Princess Rhaenys is one of the essential characters in the show. Known as “Queen Who Never Was,” Rhaenys Targaryen is the first cousin of King Viserys I Targaryen and wife of Lord Corlys Velaryon.
She is the daughter of the Prince of Dragonstone, so people thought that she would be the successor of the Iron Throne, but unfortunately, after the death of her father, the throne was passed on to her father’s brother Baelon, i.e., King Viserys’ father. After King Baelon, again, the throne was passed on to Viserys because nobody liked the idea of a girl sitting on the Iron Throne. That’s why Rhaenys was named “Queen Who Never Was.”
