Make Armor For Daenerys

Recommended Posts

So in “The Queen’s Justice”, Missandei is afraid that Daenerys will get killed by an arrow whilst scouting via dragon. Couldn’t they make armor for Daenerys so she’d be better protected?

How come they didn’t? Say if Drogon gets downed as he was in “The Spoils of War” and gets knocked out, Daenerys has to have some means of defense, since her trench coat won’t do much good. Maybe she should have taken some lessons from Ser Barristan. 

If Drogon hadn’t been there when Jaime started charging, Daenerys would have been Khaleesi... on a stick.

This show is not very realistic when it comes to armor and battlefield equipment.

The (in-universe) answer is probably that she doesn't actually want to wear armour.

Perhaps she thinks it will weigh her down and so make it harder to stay on Drogons back.
Perhaps her being so heavily influenced by dotharki culture makes her look down on armor.
Perhaps she considered it but ultimately felt it was pointless since Drogon will cover 99,9% of all incoming shots anyway.

Perhaps all of the above.

We'll find out in S8 if it will be her downfall or not.

in the books she has occasionally worn Mail.  I'm going with the "why don't any of the Vikings on Vikings wear helmets excuse", she looks sexier in her tight fitting leathers ala a biker Queen.

She should at least know how to fight if she doesn't have armor.

Mail is heavy af. I understand if the female actors can't wear it all day during filming.

That makes no sense. You might wear armor because you can fight, not the other way around.
Fighters need protection because they intend to get stuck in the middle of the brawl.
Daenerys is not a fighter, neither does she intend to become one: she's a dragon rider, what can she do up close that Drogon cant, even if she started to train?
As for the armor itself, if she falls of Drogon or if Drogon crashes into the middle of the undead army the armor would do diddly squat anyway.

Dothraki don’t wear armor. Which means if she gets stuck in the middle of the undead army without Drogon and doesn’t have fighting skills, she’s dead meat.

In that scenario, she'd be dead even with armor and fighting skills. :P

True. The scenario I had thought of when I had started this thread was the battle in “The Spoils of War”.
