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 Darry and several other loyal retainers rescued the children and smuggled them into the Free City of Braavos.

Might be I'll die before they work it out." – Dolorous Edd

- “Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.” – Oath of the Night’s Watch
