Daenerys Targaryen is the daughter of King Aerys II Targaryen and is one of the last survivors of House Targaryen. She serves as the third-person narrator of thirty-one chapters throughout A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, and A Dance with Dragons. Thirteen years before the events of the series, she was born on Dragonstone in the midst of a storm, earning her the nickname ‘Stormborn’. Shortly thereafter, Dragonstone was conquered by Robert Baratheon, and Daenerys and her brother Viserys were smuggled to Braavos. They spent the following years wandering the Free Cities.
