How do you follow Game Of Thrones? We'll find out later this year as the first of the planned spin-offs, prequel House Of The Dragon, arrives via HBO Max and Sky. The latest teaser for the show gives a hint as to what we can expect...

And, as the looks at the show have already outlined, this is very much in the Thrones style of power plays and political wrangling, with clashes between great houses.

But even more specifically, it's a battle of the sexes within House Targaryen, as family members vie for the throne.

The series stars the likes of Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Rhys Ifans, Emma Darcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Sonoya Mysaria and Fabien Frankel. Character posters for much of the main cast are below.
