ASIFR - Tales of Iron

It was later claimed that he acted from ambition, or to defend ancient Andal custom giving precedence to sons over daughters, or because he had once had an affair with Rhaenyra until she spurned him. Storm’s End declares for Aegon.

Mid 298 AL, 2nd Quarter:
- The Red Comet appears in the sky.
- Winter begins.
- In Pentos: Daenerys is brought to Khal Drogo to be introduced as his betrothed.
- Khal Drogo’s Khalasar numbers 40,000 Dothraki warriors plus their families and herds.
- Ser Jorah Mormont has offered and been accepted into Viserys’ service.
- Daenerys is married to Khal Drogo, a dozen men die fighting during the wedding making it an exceptional affair. She is given three hand-maidens by Viserys: Irri (to teach riding), Jhiqui (to teach the Dothraki language), and Doreah (to teach the arts of love). Illyrio gives her 3 huge Dragon Eggs he says have turned to stone. Khal Drogo gives her a fine grey filly she calls her “Silver”.
- Drogo’s Khalasar sets out for Vaes Dothrak.
- Daenerys’ 14th name day. She is pregnant.

- Daenerys unborn son is declared the Stallion Who Mounts the World.
- After being shamed by Khal Drogo, Viserys draws his sword in a rage, places the naked point on Daenerys’ swollen belly saying he will cut the child out and demanding his crown. Khal Drogo states, “You shall have a splendid golden crown that men shall tremble to behold.” Drogo orders his bloodriders to seize Viserys, breaking his arm and taking away his sword in the process. Drogo puts the belt of golden medallions (the same belt that Daenerys earlier used to defend herself against Viserys) into an emptied stew pot. When the gold is half melted, Drogo declares, “Crown for Cart King!” and upends the pot over Viserys’ head.
Events in the Canon requiring King Robert to still be alive
- At this point in the canon, a merchant would have attempted to give Daenerys poisoned wine, but is discovered by Ser Jorah who has news from Maegister Illyrio that brings news that King Robert, the Usurper, has offered lands and a lordship to anyone that kills Daenerys and her child or her brother.
- For their roles in saving his khaleesi, Drogo gives Ser Jorah and Jhogo their choice of his horses. Drogo also proclaims a gift for his unborn son, Rhaego: the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Drogo then swears to the Mother of Mountains that he will take his khalasar west and take the wooden horses to Westeros to kill the men in their iron suits and tear down their stone houses and rape their women.
- The Khalasar leaves Vaes Dothrak and travels Southwest traveling to Lhazar encountering another Khalasar and defeating it and conquering a small village. Khal Drogo is wounded and treated by Mirri Maz Duur.
- Khal Drogo falls from the saddle and it is discovered his wounds are past saving and he will die.
- Daenerys learns her child was born stillborn described as “monstrous: lizard-like, with scales; his skin fell off, revealing a body filled with grave worms and the stink of corruption, as if he had been dead for years.”
- Drogo lives but is comatose, sitting unseeing and unmoving in the sun covered in bloodflies. When asked when Khal Drogo will be as he was, Mirri Maz Duur states, “When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. When the seas go dry and mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. Then he will return, and not before.”
- Drogo dies, smothered with a pillow by Daenerys.
299 AL, 1st Moon, 1st Day.
- Drogo’s funeral pyre is built, covered in oil, and Mirri Maz Duur is bound to it. Daenerys covers her in oil personally. Has her Dragon Eggs placed on the pyre. Night falls and Ser Jorah notices the Red Comet the first star of the evening and Daenerys decides to light the pyre. As the fire grows, she hears the crack of rock, a first loud one and then two others that follow simultaneously. Daenerys walks into the inferno. When the fire dies, Ser Jorah finds Daenerys naked but alive and unburnt except for her hair, and nursing two baby dragons with a third draped over her shoulders.
A Clash of Kings
- Daenerys announces that she will take her khalasar into the Red Lands following what her people call “The Bleeding Star”, there are enemy khalasars to the North and unfriendly “Lamb Men” to the South. They travel by night and several horses die as they travel and soon many are forced to walk. The weakest begin to die. Daenerys remembers Viserys telling her that “Only men and dragons eat cooked meat” and she begins to feed them and they grow stonger. One of her handmaidens, however, sickens and dies. Then her outriders return word of a city. Her khalasar call it Vaes Tolorro and Daenerys resolves to shelter here so her people regain their strength. She sends off her bloodriders to scout ahead. Only Jhogo returns with anything worthwhile, three strangers riding massive beasts (camels?): Pyat Pree, the great warlock, Xaro Xhoan Daxos of the Thirteen, a merchant prince of Qarth, and Quaithe of the Shadow. They have come seeking dragons.
299 AL, 6th Moon.
- Daenerys’ arrival at Qarth is widely celebrated. Qarth is the greatest city, a crossroads, and ancient. The city has three thick walls: the first is 30 feet high and made of red sandstone carved with animals, the second 40 feet high and made of granite carved with scenes of war, and the third 50 feet high, made of black marble carved with scenes of sex. Qartheen line the streets and balconies to watch them pass, black Drogon on her shoulder. The women are in gowns that bare one breast, and the men wear beaded silk shirts while the children wear only sandals and paint.
- Xaro Xhoan Daxos provides her a palace larger than a market town, with an entire wing given over to her. He tells her that there will be a feast the next day with delicacies and music, and the Thirteen will come to do her honor. The shadowbinder Quaithe warns Daenerys to beware of everyone, for they all lust for the power of her dragons, and then departs. Near eveningfall she learns of Robert Baratheon’s death.
- After having been denied by the Pureblood both ships and men, Daenerys witnesses a firemage make a ladder of fire and climb it into the sky, as cutpurses move through the astonished crowd. Xaro declares the feat a fine trick, but Quaithe appears and tells them it was no trick. The shadowbinder tells Daenerys that half a year ago, the man could scarcely make even a small fire appear, but his power has grown now, and all because of Daenerys, the Mother of Dragons (i.e., it’s been 6 months since the birth of the dragons, extrapolated from the theory that all magic is tied to the existence of dragons).
- Daenerys decides to meet with the Undying. She has many visions while walking through their Halls (for a list see: http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/A_Clash_of_Kings-Chapter_48). Finally, she meets the Undying and they attack her while she is paralyzed by visions until Drogon attacks the corrupted heart at their center. As the House of the Undying burns she is rescued by her bloodriders and Ser Jorah.
- After her “victory” against the Undying, Dany and Ser Jorah go to the docks to seek ships to take the Khalasar out of Qarth. There is another attempt on her life, this time by a Sorrowful Man using a manticore, but she is rescued by Arstan Whitebeard (actually Ser Barristan Selmy in disguise) and a pit-fighter named Strong Belwas. They bring word from Magister Illyrio and three ships that she is to be brought to Pentos because the Seven Kingdoms have fallen into disarray.
A Storm of Swords
- The Khalasar sails for Pentos, but Ser Jorah convinces Dany to go to Astapor to purchase an army of Unsullied to aid in her fight for Westeros.
- In Astapor, Daenerys discusses the purchase of Unsullied with a master slaver, learning he has 8,000 Unsullied for sale. Daenerys quickly grows to loathe Astapor and dithers over purchasing Unsullied, horrified by their living conditions and brutality of their training.
- Daenerys tells the slavers she wants all 8,000 Unsullied, plus all the slave boys in training. That night, Quaithe appears to Daenerys, seemingly in a dream, telling her again, “To go north, you must journey south. To reach the west, you must go east. To go forward you must go back, and to touch the light you must pass beneath the shadow.” When the time for the deal to be brokered arrives, Daenerys swings the slaver’s whip (the totem that controls the Unsullied) in the slave master’s face, and releases Drogon on him, shouting, “Drogon! Dracarys!” This is the sign for her followers to attack the slavers. With the help of the Unsullied who obey her as she is now their owner she has the slavers killed. The other slaves join her and soon Astapor is conquered.
- Daenerys and her army of Unsullied reach Yunkai. She conquers by winning to her side the Stormcrows, a company of sellswords, inducing the other Yunkai-loyal sellsword company, the Second Sons, to drink and be too drunk to fight, and attacking at night while the city’s defenders would least expect it. She frees the slaves. They cheer her, calling out to her as “Mother!”
- Daenerys’ huge army of mostly freed slaves is camped before Meereen. Strong Belwas is sent to challenge Meereen’s champion and defeats him, but Meereen does not capitulate. While she tours her camps the former Captain of the Second Sons, Mero of Braavos, called the Titan’s Bastard, attacks Dany, having shaved his beard and hidden among her freedmen after the defeat of Yunkai. Arstan kills him with only a staff, his body is then ripped to shreds by the freedmen. After being confronted by Ser Jorah, he reveals himself as Ser Barristan Selmy and pledges his sword to Daenerys. Ser Jorah urges her not to accept him, but Ser Barristan reveals Ser Jorah’s role as informant to Varys and the Small Council. Dany decides to send them both on a suicide mission to infiltrate Meereen by the sewers and open the gates to her army.
-Daenerys sits in the Great Pyramid of Meereen, victorious. She pardons Ser Barristan and he swears his sword to her cause. Ser Jorah remains defensive and Daenerys banishes him on pain of death. Later, she decides she must learn to rule. She declares that she will stay in Meereen and rule the city as queen.
A Dance with Dragons
-Daenerys rules Meereen as queen and must deal with the assassination of her people and troops by the Sons of the Harpy. Petitioners bring her the burnt remains of sheep they claim her dragons have destroyed. The last petitioner brings her the burnt remains of a child.
