HOUSE TARGARYEN The Targaryens are the blood of the dragon, descended from the high lords of the ancient Freehold of Valyria, their heritage proclaimed in a striking (some say inhuman) beauty, with lilac or indigo or violet eyes and hair of silver-gold or platinum white. Aegon the Dragon’s ancestors escaped the Doom of Valyria and the chaos and slaughter that followed to settle on Dragonstone, a rocky island in the narrow sea. It was from there that Aegon and his sisters sailed to conquer the Seven Kingdoms. To preserve the blood royal and keep it pure, House Targaryen has often followed the Valyrian custom of wedding brother to sister. Aegon himself took both his sisters to wife, and fathered sons on each. The Targaryen banner is a three-headed dragon, red on black, the three heads representing Aegon and his sisters. The Targaryen words are Fire and Blood.

The next time you raise a hand to me will be the last time you have hands
Dany was a character I was underwhelmed by in the first couple of episodes of the series then when she started standing up to her vile brother Viserys and embraced her role as Queen I realised her strength and struggle.
She has been put down and abused her entire life by Viserys and after being told for all those years that he was the Dragon who would reclaim the Seven Kingdoms Dany realises that she is the one with the power and the ability to bring back dragons and led her new people to victory.
It’s a beautiful character arc played perfectly by Emilia Clarke
I second everything. I was also overwhelmed by Dany’s ascension through the episodes and by Emilia’s perfect acting as well. She gave life to the character in a beautiful way!
