From the young girl to the mother of dragons
Daenerys is the last heir of the house Targaryen, a powerful family that several hundred years ago were the masters of dragons. At the beginning of the saga, we learn that the Targaryens have lost the war. Jaime Lannister killed Aerys Targaryen the mad king”, father of Daenerys. Robert Baratheon marries Cersei Lannister (Jaime’s sister), takes Aerys’ place on the Iron Throne and becomes king of the kingdom of Westeros. The survivors of the Targaryen family, Viserys (Daenerys’ older brother) and his mother have to flee. But his mother died shortly after giving birth to Daenerys during a terrible storm, giving her the nickname “Daenerys Stormborn”. Viserys and his younger sister find themselves exiled across the sea, living as best they can on the generosity of wealthy landowners hoping to get something from the two heirs of this noble family. We will meet Daenerys, 13 years after these events (in the books, in the series it is 16 years). Viserys has never given up the idea of taking back the throne that is rightfully his. So he will “sell” his younger sister in marriage to the Dothraki barbarian Khal Drogo in exchange for his army of fierce fighters who he hopes will allow him to reclaim the kingdom of Westeros. But things won’t quite work out the way he planned.
