Queen Daenerys Targaryen will rule Westeros

69 posts in this topic

Daenerys Targaryen will become the second ruling queen of Westeros after she takes the Iron Throne.  She is the person who is best fit to rule and reform the kingdom.  She deserves to rule.

 

  1. Daenerys always finds a way to win.  She was forced to marry Khal Drogo and turned that to her advantage.  Where most women would wilt away, Daenerys won Drogo's respect.  She was badly outnumbered and yet she found a way to free the Unsullied from their Astapori masters.  She took Yunkai without a siege and won the Second Sons (Storm Crows in the text) over to her side.  She defeated the masters and took their ships.
  2. Dany has proven herself capable of bettering the lives of people.  Like many, many fans have posted on this very forum, millions of people in the East now enjoy freedom because of Daenerys Targaryen.  She dismantled the slave trade and made sure no one in the future will ever be enslaved again.  Part of making that happen required taking complete control of the Dothraki by getting rid of the khals, the source of most of the slaves.
  3. Daenerys has a regal bearing.  It's been said more than a few times by more than a few people.  Daenerys has the elegance and the bearing of a monarch.  I have now watched every episode of the show, an exercise that took up many hours, and I do not recall a single scene in which Daenerys utters a profanity of any kind.  Whereas most of the characters regularly drop the f-bomb, shit, and the c-word, Daenerys always chooses intelligent words to express herself.  She always carries herself with dignity.  Just watching that scene right before she executed the Tarlys was like watching a God delivering judgment.  It just felt right.  It was right and it was the right decision to handle someone like Randyll Tarly and his son.
  4. Daenerys' story is a parallel to that of her great ancestor, Aegon the Conqueror.  Aegon gave people the same choice.  Bend the knee or die.  A few minor but arrogant kings, like Durrandon, Hoare, and Gardener had to die before Westeros bent its knees and became all the better for it.  You have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. 
  5. Daenerys knows how to seize the moment.  She took advantage of the cult of R'hllor to help bring peace and hope to Meereen.  While not a religious person herself (which is a good thing), she knows the value of religion and belief.  She uses them to her advantage, like any capable ruler should.  Like any capable politician should.
  6. I liked that topic thread crediting Dany's public speaking skills.  She is the best orator among the main characters.  Her keen intelligence and timing enhance her considerable communications skills. 
  7. Daenerys has travelled the Free Cities.  She can speak many different language, from the Common Tongue, to High Valyrian, to Dothraki.  She is a very knowledgeable person.  In a land whose idea of a "formal education" is having been spoon fed by the Maesters, Dany has traveled widely and actually gained real world experience. 
  8. Daenerys looks like a Targaryen.  She has those physical traits that are uniquely Valyrian.  She has awakened dragons from stone.  She is Azor Ahai.  She is the Mother of Dragons.  Her identity cannot be disputed nor questioned by anyone. 
  9. Jon already bent his knees and thus bound the North to Daenerys.  Regardless of how Sansa feels about it, when those wights come calling on Winterfell, it won't be to deliver pizza.  Even foolish Sansa would swallow her pride and bend her knees to Dany, if she wants to survive the long night.
  10. *Midnight Confession asked that I add this to the list:  Daenerys is fireproof, which is as close to a god as you can get in that universe.  Another sign that she is truly very special. 
  11. And this one comes from the fan discussions on the previous episode.  The people of Slaver's Bay (Bay of Dragons now) are better off now than they were before Dany got rid of the masters.  This is proof that Dany improves the lives of the people.  She is the best choice to lead Westeros for the long term.

I wrote this partly in response to the many fans' concerns about too much fan service and how it may affect the ending.  While I can agree that there is a lot of fan service on the show.  That is true.  However, I also believe that the show and the books will reach the same conclusion:  Daenerys Targaryen on the throne and ruling Westeros.  No other ending would make any sense. 

The writing on the show can get lazy at times and too many shortcuts just to force a scene to happen.  Case in point:  Gilly finding that passage regarding Rhaegar's annulment.  It's blatantly contrived.   I believe that they ad lib on the smaller parts but the ending of book and show will agree and Daenerys will rule Westeros at the end of the story.

:agree:

I agree with the topic author.  Daenerys will rule in the end.  But not alone.  With Jon by her side.  She's a capable girl and the ruler that Westeros deserves.  If anyone can lead the people through the long night, it is Dany.  She led a weak khalasar through the red waste. 

#9 - Yes he bent the knee.  I would have felt better if it had been done publicly in front of Sansa and the north to see.  But yes this is Torrhen kneeling to Aegon all over again.  The north is back in the fold under the wings of the Dragon.  It's a good start.

She will rule Westeros.  That's what the build up to the story is all about.  The question is really who will rule alongside her.  Her wingman, so to speak.  The show seems set to make that person be Jon.  I don't know who it will be in the novels themselves.  Perhaps Aegon.

What a pathetic and boring end to the series that would be.

The Chosen One 1.0 rules with The Chosen One 2.0 at her side. They then make children who are even more special and Chosen... :rolleyes:

Daenerys is a traitor to her own family. It's already cheesy enough to see her stupid scenes riding around on a dragon burning people. There is only one ruler now and he is marching south past the wall.

Ella gobernará Westeros. De eso se trata la construcción de la historia. La pregunta es en realidad quién gobernará junto a ella. Su ala, por así decirlo. El espectáculo parece dispuesto a hacer que esa persona sea Jon. No sé quién será en las novelas mismas. Tal vez Aegon. 

No, the end will be bittersweet, that's a happy ending, Daewnerys is going to die.

Estoy de acuerdo con el autor del tema. Daenerys gobernará al final. Pero no solo. Con Jon a su lado. Ella es una chica capaz y el gobernante que Westeros merece. Si alguien puede guiar a la gente durante la larga noche, es Dany. Llevó un khalasar débil a través de la basura roja. 

# 9 - Sí, dobló la rodilla. Me habría sentido mejor si se hubiera hecho públicamente frente a Sansa y al norte para ver. Pero sí esto es Torrhen de rodillas a Aegon de nuevo. El norte está de vuelta en el pliegue bajo las alas del Dragón. Es un buen comienzo.

No, the end will be bittersweet, that's a happy ending, Daewnerys is going to die.

This subject is a waste, Daenerys is going to die, that is his destiny, is fire and fight against ice (white walkers), who stays with the throne will be someone who contemplates both elements, ice and fire, ie jon snow, Jon will be the king at the end

Hold up. How is Daenerys a traitor to her own family?

She isn't. She's the rightful Queen and all of Westeros will bend the knee (or else).

That is sickening to me.  I hate Jon and it would be a tragedy if he ends up on the throne.  And boring.  This story is partly empowerment of women.  I don't think an ending where Jon, one of the dumbest people in the story, ends up on the throne.  Boy gets the throne is boring.  Girl gets the throne is a better ending.

She's been giving me serious Henry Tudor vibes this season and we all know how the War of the Roses ended... The real question is whether or not Jon is Elizabeth of York

Eso me asusta. Odio a Jon y una de las cosas que tragedia y termina en el trono. Y aburrido. Esta historia es en parte el empoderamiento de las mujeres. No creo que una final donde Jon, una de las personas más estúpidas en la historia, termina en el trono. Chico se pone el trono es aburrido. Chica obtiene el trono es un mejor final.

Yes, the show is very Feminazi, but anyway I think she's going to die, and jon snow will be the king in the end.

So far anyone who wanted the IT has died. Maybe someone, who doesn't want it, gets it. Tyrion?

I can see this ending with the dissolving of the monarchy and Westeros turning into more of a republic type of government. 

GRRM doesn't seem interested in those endings where everything ends as it begins but this time only better, and honestly that's what keeping a monarchy would bring. "And a new queen/king replaced the old king/queen and they lived happily ever after! Don't worry about their descendants either, cause they'll all turn out alright too probably!" 

No, the throne needs to go.

Cersei hasn't died yet, or Dany.

Meanwhile, I don't think Tommen ever wanted the throne, and he killed himself not long after getting it.

So I think you're going at this the wrong way. It should be someone who's already died. And I don't mean Jon Snow—if you can't make your mind up about being dead or alive, that doesn't count. King Cleon the Butcher was dug up and made King again in Astapor. Westeros needs to go dig him up again and put him on the Iron Throne. Then nothing bad will ever happen again.

Dany is too stupid to rule after her decision to follow Tyrion's plan to "catch a wight to convince Cersei".

The true ruler is Sansa as she was the only one smart enough to decline the invitation.
