From A Wiki of Ice and Fire - A Song of Ice and Fire & Game of Thrones
Princess Daenerys Targaryen is a member of House Targaryen, the former royal family of the Seven Kingdoms. Her father was King Aerys II, and her mother was his sister-wife Queen Rhaella. Daenerys was conceived during Robert's Rebellion that that would ultimately end her family's reign. Before she was born, following the defeat at the Battle of the Trident, her pregnant mother and brother, Viserys, were sent from King's Landing to Dragonstone for safekeeping, the family ancestral seat.
Daenerys was born as a fierce storm struck Dragonstone, and so was called Stormborn. Her mother died as a result of the labor. By that time the war was lost, Robert Baratheon had claimed the throne, all of her family dead, but her and her older brother, Viserys. The garrison at Dragonstone decided to surrender and turn them over to the rebels for their lives, but before they could act on this plan, Ser Willem Darry and several other loyal retainers rescued the children and smuggled them into the Free City of Braavos.
