Daenerys Targaryen, first of her name. Queen of The Andals and First Men, Lady Regnant of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm. Khaleesi of the Great Dothraki Khalesar. The Stormborn, the Unburnt, Mother of Dragons, The Silver Queen, Chain-Breaker, The Merciful Queen

Queen Daenerys Targaryen, known in histories as The Great Queen, is often heralded as the archetypal Westerosi golden age monarch, despite having won her throne in fire and blood. As only a young woman she led an army of former slaves and mercenaries to victory over the divided armies of the Baratheon claimants to the Westerosi throne. Her successful military campaign reunited the fractured Westerosi lands and returned to the fold the strategically vital kingdom of The North, installing Lady Sansa Stark, the last remaining trueborn Stark, as Lady Paramount of the North, alongside her husband, Tyrion Lannister, the only Lannister to survive the Targaryen queen’s purges of disloyal nobles. Legend states that Queen Daenerys personally executed Jaime Lannister, the Kingslayer, with her own knife, although recent historical evidence has pushed this claim in doubt. Further historiographical thinking has begun to react against the traditionalist “golden age” view of Daenerys first of her name, as new evidence comes to light detailing the true reach of the so-called “Targaryen Purges” and the flowering of art and song under the rule of the Bastard King Joffrey and the Queen Regent which has previously been attributed to Queen Daenerys. However, there have been few moves to discredit the title of “Chain-Breaker”. The queen was enthusiastic in her prosecution and punishment of slavers and led several campaigns against the Great Slave Cities, in the modern day Republic Of Essan States, under the banner of liberation and freedom. 
A figure of immense historical influence and reach, her enduring legacy cannot be denied. Westerosi culture forever changed under her guardianship, embracing and celebrating values of freedom, protection and equality of women and political stability. Art historians have found the figure of Daenerys Targaryen reflected in religious art, even hundreds of years after her rule and many thousand miles from Westeros, after Westerosi traders mingled legends of the Faith of the Seven, specifically the Mother Above, with stories of the Merciful Queen and Mother of Dragons. The trope of the warrior mother queen has endured in Westerosi tradition and many children’s stories and myths (including the ever-popular The Dragon and The Bear) reflect mythologised aspects of Queen Daenerys’ life. Furthermore, Dothraki culture merged with the culture of the Andals and First Men during her rule, as Queen Daenerys was known to both keep the seven and Dothraki beliefs. Poetically, Queen Daenerys’s last words were recorded by her heir and companion, Lady Myrcella Martell of Dorne, as “I go to the night lands, to my sun-and-stars, to the child of my heart, to ride on a white horse for evermore.”
