12 Daenerys Targaryen Quotes That Show She’s Winning the ‘Game of Thrones’ (VIDEO)

Hot List 5

Daenerys game of thronesIt's a blessed day today! Know why? Emilia Clarke, who plays badass Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones, turned 25 today. Kind of hard to believe that she's so young yet can be so commanding and amazing on screen. And, on top of her acting talent, she's a freakin' knockout. I've had a girl crush on Emilia since the first season premiered, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

We've seen her get harassed by her brother, get sold into marriage, eat a horse heart, get it on with her hot husband Drogo, lose a child, lose her husband, walk into fire and come out nude with some dragons, save said dragons from some warlocks, and free an entire slave army and become a leader. Is there anything the girl can't do?

So, to celebrate all things Daenerys, here are her best quotes from the show and a video so you can see her crazy hotness in person. Happy birthday, Emilia!

1. "When my dragons are grown, we will take back what was stolen from me and destroy those who wronged me! We will lay waste to armies and burn cities to the ground!"

2. Missandei: "Valar morghulis."
Daenerys: "Yes. All men must die, but we are not men."

3. "You're both here to advise me. I value your advice, but if you ever question me in front of strangers again, you'll be advising someone else. Is that understood?"

4. "No one will take my dragons."

5. "Unsullied! Slay the masters, slay the soldiers, slay every man who holds a whip, but harm no child. Strike the chains off every slave you see!"

6. "I don't want to be his Queen. I want to go home."

7. "A mother does not flee without her children."

8. "He [Viserys] was no dragon. Fire cannot kill a dragon."

9. "I will take what is mine with fire and blood."

10. "I am a Khaleesi of the Dothraki! I am the wife of the great Khal and I carry his son inside me! The next time you raise a hand to me will be the last time you have hands."

11. "I am Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, of the blood of Old Valyeria. I am the dragon's daughter, and I swear to you that those who would harm you will die screaming."

12. "Dracarys!"

And here she is in her finest moment in Game of Thrones:

Daenerys is def my top favourite character :) and top fave moment is the one in the linked video. Totally sealed my respect for her :D

Good quotes, but Daenerys isn't a part of the game of thrones yet. She has an army yes, but she's stuck in Essos and really can't get to Westeros. When she is actually a part of the competition she will be involved with the game of thrones.

I cannot pick a favorite Daenerys moment for myself, because my answer to the first question (Is she your favorite) is "no". I, in all due respect have one hope for Daenerys Stormborn, and that hope is that she will die. I genuinely fear her becoming worse than Queen Cersei, worse even than her father, King Aerys the Mad.

Daenerys is by far my favourite character from Game of Thrones. I think she deserves it far more than anyone else, because apart from blood she's lived in fear of Viserys, grown as a woman and shown her loyalty and passion. She's more like Rhaegar then Aerys or Viserys, so I don't think we'll be seeing a crazy stunt.

There's many ways this can go:
I believe she should get the throne, but she may be killed by her own dragons, who can't be controlled, not even by her.
Or maybe the dragons will sit on the Wall and fight the white walkers.

I love Danerys. She has inspired me to be strong and stand up to people who try and bring me down. I dont think she will go mad as she has a strong head on her shoulders. I hope she gets to Westaros and take back the seven kingdoms. If Tyrions with her then brilliant!
