Eve Best On House of the Dragon
This line Eve’s character says “Men would sooner put the realm to the torch than see a woman ascend to the Iron Throne” was also what made Eve take this role on a show that she initially had no idea what she was auditioning for.
She plays Rhaenys Velaryon, King Viserys’ cousin. She is a Targaryen princess and dragon rider, who married Lord Corlys and has two children with him, Laena and Laenor.
It was Eve’s character that was a contender for the crown following King Jaehaerys’ death, and had a stronger claim than Viserys, but since she was a woman she was passed over. And so now she is known as “the Queen Who Never Was”.
