Viserys Targaryen

The only surviving male heir of House Targaryen, the young Viserys was sent with his newborn sister Daenerys to Essos to live in safety. In exile he grew obsessed with retaking his family's throne, but Khal Drogo executed him with a crown of molten gold before he could claim his post as king.

The death of her husband, Khal Drogo, did not stop Daenerys from strategizing her return to the Seven Kingdoms to take back the Iron Throne. Impervious to fire, Dany used the heat of Drogo's funeral pyre to hatch the dragon eggs she received as a wedding gift, and considers her dragons her children. Dany rallied the Unsullied of Astapor to her cause and continues to grow her army as she marches across Essos.
