However, Daenerys’ happiness proves short-lived. After a fight with one of his companions, Drogo receives a near-fatal wound that leaves him at death’s door. Desperate, Daenerys pleads with a witch to save his life, but her spell leaves her husband a shell of his former self.
As if losing Drogo isn’t bad enough, Daenerys – now also known as “Khaleesi” – then suffers a miscarriage and is robbed of her child as well. Furthermore, she discovers that the tragedy was part of a curse concocted by witch Mirri Maz Duur in revenge for Drogo’s slaughter of her village. And it’s a hex that will forever leave Dany infertile.
Flash-forward several seasons, and Daenerys has become one of the most powerful rulers in the known world. Following her brother’s death and her mercy killing of Drogo, Dany has now assumed her place as the heir to the Iron Throne. Thus she begins season seven by landing on Westeros’ soil – her first step towards ultimate victory.
