4 Dwelling of the Dragon forged associates have been formally introduced so much: Paddy Considine as King Viserys I Targaryen (the fifth Targaryen king and a person of the riders of Balerion the Black Dread), Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower (the politically-astute daughter of the Hand of the King), Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Viserys’ initially-born and a dragonrider), and Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen (Viserys’ more youthful brother and heir to the throne).
