And if she is going nuts, then as one of the above posters mentioned - why are the warnings about Quentyn and the Kraken and Dark Flame accurate? Dany can't know they're coming unless she can see into the future herself.
I agree that the heads up on dark flame et al. seems to indicate that the Quaithe visions are not a figment of Dany's imagination. (Fingers crossed that I'm not imagining your post.)

Think of it this way, though. If Dany goes back to Westeros and sees Aegon and starts telling everyone that he's fake because she saw a vision of a mummer's dragon, people will think she's crazy. Maybe that's the point.
GRRM's definitely alluding to the history of Targ madness when it comes to Dany's character and story, in my mind. If Dany would arrive in Westeros when Aegon happens to be top dog... Slightly bratty, but generally amiable kid versus dragon lady referring to visions about false dragons and men without shadows, while also rambling on about fire and blood?

Arent Targaryas known for having prophetic dreams? Im honestly asking. If thats the case then it could be that this is just Dany's interpretation of the prophecies, but they seem to be leading her down a dark road because whenever a Targ gets prophecy obsessed shit hits the fan
In the cases I can think of, the Targs in question seemed to have been well aware that they had dreamed what came to pass.
