15 Things You Didn't Know About GoT's Daenerys Targaryen

Oh, Daenerys Targaryen. We've loved her since the day we first set eyes on her. It wasn't just her dazzling beauty that captivated us. It was more than that. She also had great strength and power. The beauty certainly didn’t hurt. She became a drug for us and we became addicts. For the past 5+ years, we've devoured everything that we could find out about her character. Each episode, a little more of the curtain was pulled back, revealing more about goddess, feeding our addiction.

Even for those who have been rabid fans of the TV show, there is much more information on this Targaryen queen available. Some have kept away from information in the books, fearing spoilers for the show, but, now that the show has passed the books (or at least caught up to them), those fears have been all but erased. That being said, there is some information from the books in this list, so if you're afraid to have your mind opened, then, by all means, run away. Otherwise, prepare to be fully introduced to Daenerys Targaryen.

Everyone wants to be an expert on everything Daenerys. We want that for you as well. We've scoured through all the information that's available on this mysterious woman and have brought it here for you. Some of it is purely speculation. There are no spoilers, but there are some theories. As with all good theories, however, there is the risk of potential spoilers. But these can also mislead you and blind you from other readings as well, so be warned. We will say this. Once you've finished with this list, you'll know as much about Daenerys as there is to know. Here are 15 things you didn’t know about GoT’s Daenerys Targaryen.

1 Dany vs. Azor Ahai

via The Independent

In the Azor Ahai prophecy, told both in the TV show and the books, a legendary hero will bring forth the burning sword called Lightbringer. There are many reasons why we believe that Jon Snow is the foreseen hero, mainly because Melisandre keeps telling us that he is, especially once Stannis fell. The story tells that Jon Snow's sword will need to be turned into the hero's sword, Lightbringer. How will this happen? Well, the legendary Azor Ahai created his by plunging it through the heart of his loved one. In one of the theories, the loved one that must be killed is Daenerys, the living embodiment of fire. This would satisfy the prophecy: "In this dread hour a warrior shall draw from the fire a burning sword. And that sword shall be Lightbringer, the Red Sword of Heroes, and he who clasps it shall be Azor Ahai come again, and the darkness shall flee before him."
