Dany has learned most of what she knows about Westeros and the Targayren rule from Vyseris, who made her believe that the Targayren were some kind of god-emperors revered and almost worshipped as living gods by their subjects (hence all that "blood of the dragon" crap she repeats again and again and again...she believes she is expected to be like that), and sadly, the westerosi she has met to date have done very little to change her opinions (they all humor her and fawn excesively over her, even when she was at her lowest point; Ser Jorah was in love with her, Ser Barristan was trying to make her accept him despite his period of service to Robert, and Quentyn was trying to woo her).
But we, as readers, know how being ruler of the Seven Kingdoms really is: you have to compromise and negotiate and haggle and cajole the many powerful players that think themselves almost as important as the king/queen himself/herself; let remember the concesions Roberts had to do to the Lannisters, how Tywin and Renly had to bribe and flatter the Tyrells, how Cersei and later Kevan had to haggle with the Great Septon, how Robb had to give up to Lord Walder Frey demands (and got screwed when he didn´t fulfill his part of the deal)...etc.
So, what do you think will happen when Dany crashes against reality? She has dragons, and if she manages to control them, that will help a lot, but I think that if she spits too many times her "blood of the dragons" line to the great lords, she will be in trouble anyway; her dragons can´t protect her from being poisoned or strangled in her own bed or stabbed in the back...I know she can be quite smart and a fast learner when Daario is not around, but I think she is too used to use her dragon queen attitude to mask her fears and insecurities, and she will probably more afraid and insecure than ever when she faces the task of finally ruling the Seven Kingdoms at last...Will she be able to adapt and change her usual behaviour to suit the enviroment?.
