Though two of the captains of the Stormcrows are quick to refuse Daenerys, the third, Daario Naharis , is more polite. Mero , the captain of the Second Sons, behaves extremely rude in Daenerys's presence. She offers to pay more than Yunkai, and gifts him with enough wine for him and his sellswords when he promises to consider her offer. The Yunkish envoy, Grazdan mo Eraz , is the last to arrive. He offers Daenerys gold, but she refuses, and informs him that Yunkai has three days to free their slaves.
If they do not, she will sack the city. Once the envoy from Yunkai has left, Daenerys reveals that she plans to attack the city that same night, while the Stormcrows are still arguing over her offer, the Second Sons are drunk on the wine she gave them, and the Yunkai'i believe they still have two more days.
Shortly before the attack begins, Daario Naharis walks into the Targaryen camp.
He presents Daenerys with the heads of Prendahl na Ghezn and Sallor , his fellow captains, and pledges the Stormcrows to her service. Her soldiers win the battle; Though Mero has escaped, thousand others are taken captive, and Daenerys agrees that any slave or sellsword who will swear loyalty to Daenerys are to be spared. Daenerys marches the last few leagues to Yunkai, and waits until the morning of the third day, when the city gates open and the slaves from Yunkai emerge, hailing her as "Mhysa", meaning "Mother" in Ghiscari.
Daenerys marches further north, to Meereen. In preparation for her arrival, the Meereenese retreat behind the walls of their city after stripping their lands clean. In addition, they have nailed a hundred and sixty-three slave children onto the mileposts placed on the coast road between Yunkai and Meereen. Daenerys encamps her host, now more than eighty thousand strong though fewer than a quarter are warriors , outside of the walls of Meereen. Belwas fights against Oznak zo Pahl , the "hero of Meereen", and easily slays him. Ben Plumm , the new commander of the Second Sons, suggests entering the city through the sewers, but Daenerys does not consider it a promising idea.

She takes Missandei and Arstan into the camp of her freedmen, where she is attacked by Mero, who had been hidden among her freedmen while awaiting an opportunity to kill her. Arstan saves her life, killing Mero in the process. Barristan further reveals that Jorah has served the Iron Throne as a spy, giving them information about Viserys and Daenerys ever since her wedding to Drogo. Daenerys is furious and feels betrayed by both of them. While her army breaks the gates of the city from the outside, and her archers fire arrows at the city's defenders, Jorah, Barristan, Belwas and nineteen others enter the city through the sewers to free the slaves, who then revolt.
With Meereen taken, Daenerys has one hundred and sixty-three of the Great Masters nailed on posts on the plaza in front of the Great Pyramid. Though she is able to pardon Barristan Selmy, she finds herself unable to do the same for Jorah Mormont. Instead, she exiles Mormont, and warns him that he'll be killed if he returns to the city.
Daenerys learns that the council she had previously installed in Astapor to rule the city has been killed and replaced by a former butcher who has declared himself king, and enslaved all the former nobility. In addition, Yunkai is gathering new levies and sending out envoys to form alliances against Daenerys. Daenerys decides that she cannot leave Meereen to suffer the same violent fate as Astapor, and informs her captains that she will stay in Meereen to learn how to rule as a Queen over one city, before conquering the Seven Kingdoms. In the meantime, word of a three-headed dragon having hatched in Qarth reach King's Landing , and are reported to the small council by Lord Varys.
By now, news of Daenerys's dragons and her campaign are starting to reach Westeros. Several acolytes of the Citadel discuss the stories they have heard; Sailors speak of dragons in Asshai , Qarth , and Meereen , dragons among the Dothraki , and dragons freeing slaves. Though all the tales differ in details, all speak of dragons and a beautiful young queen.
Leo Tyrell informs the acolytes that Daenerys has, in fact, hatched herself three dragons. In Dorne , Arianne Martell recalls having heard stories about dragons in Qarth and a slave revolt in Astapor. At the Kingsmoot , Euron Greyjoy reveals to the lords of the Iron Islands that there are three dragons in the world. In Braavos , a drunk Dareon hears tales about dragons as well, and repeats them to maester Aemon and Samwell Tarly.
Aemon becomes increasingly interested in the stories about the dragons, but is too ill to venture outside and learn about them firsthand. He requests that Samwell brings him someone who has seen the dragons. Samwell encounters Xhondo Dhoru , who had seen Daenerys and her dragons in Qarth. He insists that Samwell informs the archmaesters at the Citadel should be informed about Daenerys and the dangers at the Wall , calling Daenerys "our last hope", and believing that a maester should be send to Daenerys to give her counsel.
Marwyn decides to travel to Slaver's Bay himself, to give Daenerys his aid. Rumors of Daenerys's striking beauty have spread far and wide,  and she is said to silver-gold hair and amethyst eyes. Daenerys rules Meereen as its queen, but she faces multiple enemies. A resistance group of Ghiscari noblemen from Meereen , the Sons of the Harpy , engage in a shadow war against Daenerys, slaying freedmen , Unsullied , and shavepates during the night. Daenerys also faces the dislike from the nobility of the city, as numerous crimes had been committed during the sack, and the nobility especially have suffered losses of property and wealth.
These men have shaven their heads, abandoning the traditional hair styles of the Ghiscari culture. These men, known as shavepates , are led by Skahaz mo Kandaq , who serves Daenerys as a counselor. Drogon , Viserion , and Rhaegal have been growing wilder and often hunt sheep in the lands surrounding the city. Daenerys pays shepherds for the loss of their animals. However, one day at court, one man lingers after Daenerys has granted compensation to be given for the loss of twenty-three animals. After all petitioners have departed, he presents her with the burned bones of his daughter, Hazzea , saying it had been " the winged shadow ".
Viserion and Rhaegal are locked in a pit underneath the Great Pyramid where Daenerys resides, but Drogon escapes and flies off towards the Dothraki sea. Quaithe uses magic to visit Daenerys one night, when Daenerys is alone. She informs her that the glass candles are burning, and warns Daenerys about the dangers that are coming. Kraken and dark flame, lion and griffin, the sun's son and the mummer's dragon. Trust none of them.
Remember the Undying. Beware the perfumed seneschal. Daenerys hosts Xaro Xhoan Daxos , who offers her thirteen ships on the condition that she departs for Westeros immediately. She considers his offer, but realizes that all of her freedmen who stay behind in Meereen will either be enslaved once more or die. Unable to take all of them to Westeros with only thirteen ships, Daenerys refuses Xaro's offer, and Xaro leaves Meereen, declaring war.
The Wise Masters of Yunkai resumed slavery after Daenerys left for Meereen , and by now have raised a new army of slave levies and sellswords ,  who are joined by iron legions from New Ghis. She refuses him on multiple occasions. Galazza Galare , the Green Grace , counsels Daenerys that she should take a Meereenese noble as her husband, and proposes Hizdahr zo Loraq. Daenerys and Hizdahr come to an agreement; If he can stop the murders by the Sons of the Harpy for ninety days, they will wed.
Barristan objects to the marriage, but Daenerys informs him that ninety days is a long period, and Hizdahr could still fail.

However, she admits that, should Hizdahr succeed, she will wed him as she promised, for her people. Having been attracted to Daario since he swore his fealty to her,  Daenerys insists on seeing him immediately. Daario brings her good news: negotiations with the Lhazareen have been successful, and the Lhazareen have agreed to trade with Meereen. While Daario and his Stormcrows face the Long Lances , a sellsword company hired by Yunkai, in the Khyzai Pass , but Daario boasts that twelve of them defected to his side, while only nine of his own had died.
When Daario suggests that Daenerys should agree to a marriage only as a pretense to gather all the Great Masters and kill them, Daenerys angrily sends him and his Stormcrows away from the city once more, back to the Khyzai Pass. Ships from Qarth , Tolos , and New Ghis , and even Meereenese ships which had fled when Daenerys first took the city have blocked the harbor.
Without any ships of her own, nor wood to build new ships, Daenerys cannot battle them. Hizdahr has been successful thus far in preventing new murders, causing Skahaz mo Kandaq to suspect him of being the Harpy. Daenerys refuses to allow him to torture Hizdahr. The first Astapori to reach the city is infected with the bloody flux , soon known as "the pale mare".
More of the surviving Astapori on their way to Meereen have the contagious disease. Daenerys follows the advice of her counselors and does not allow the refugees to enter the city,  but instead has them camp outside the walls. The Yunkai'i are in contact with Hizdahr zo Loraq , and inform him that they are willing to give Meereen peace, but they require gold from Daenerys, as well as an agreement that the Yunkai'i can resume slaving and Astapor will be a slaver city once again, without Daenerys's interference.

The agreements are to be sealed by Daenerys's marriage to Hizdahr. Finally giving in to her desires, Daenerys takes Daario as her lover once they are alone.
One of them reveals himself to be Quentyn Martell of Dorne , who brings with him a secret marriage pact signed by his uncle on behalf of Dorne and Ser Willem Darry on behalf of Viserys, promising the hand of Quentyn's sister Arianne to Viserys in marriage, in exchange for Dorne's support. With Viserys dead, Quentyn offers himself in marriage to Daenerys. While Barristan sees the offer as a hopeful option, Daenerys rejects him and marries Hizdahr after ninety days of peace inside the city.
Hizdahr invites the captains from the Yunkish army into Meereen, to sign the peace treaty and celebrate the opening of the fighting pits. Hostages from Meereen have been sent into the Yunkish camp, to ensure the captains remain unharmed. Daenerys hates everything about the feast.
After a confrontation with Ben Plumm, Daenerys orders Barristan Selmy to free Meris and send her back to the Windblown , hoping to convince the Windblown to abandon Yunkai. Daenerys next takes Quentyn to see her dragons, and urges him to return home. She goes to Daznak's Pit for the gladiator fights. Belwas consumes poisoned locusts which Hizdahr had been urging Daenerys to eat, while Daenerys grows disgusted with the day's events.
Just as she is about to leave, Belwas falls sick to his knees, and Drogon returns to the city, landing in the pit to feed on the body of the slain Barsena. The crowd panics, and one man attacks Drogon with his spear. Daenerys rushes to Drogon's side, mounts the dragon, and rides on his back as he flies out of the arena. In Meereen, many fear that Daenerys has died,  and chaos returns to the city as several plots collide. Daenerys still lives, however.
Drogon has flown her to a hill in the Dothraki sea, which she dubs Dragonstone , after the island on which she had been born. She eventually decides to return to Meereen, but is unable to get Drogon to follow her commands, leading to her traveling on foot. She begins to fall ill; Her stomach is cramping, she is retching up green slime, and has diarrhea. She dreams of Viserys, and wakes with her thighs covered in blood.
She spots Drogon and calls him to her side, and the dragon obeys. Khal Jhaqo and his khalasar eventually find Daenerys standing next to her dragon. I am blood of the dragon , she told herself. If I look back I am lost. Mirri : You are mad. Daenerys : Is it so far from madness to wisdom?
No, no, my good knight , do not fear for me. The fire is mine. I am Daenerys Stormborn, daughter of dragons, bride of dragons, mother of dragons, don't you see? Don't you SEE? A queen must listen to all. The highborn and the low, the strong and the weak, the noble and the venal. One voice may speak you false, but in many there is always truth to be found.
It seems to me that a queen who trusts no one is as foolish as a queen who trusts everyone. Do you know what it is like to be sold, squire? My brother sold me to Khal Drogo for the promise of a golden crown. Well, Drogo crowned him in gold, though not as he had wished, and I Do you think I have forgotten how it felt to be afraid? Why do the gods make kings and queens, if not to protect the ones who can't protect themselves?
A dragon is no slave. Mother of dragons , Daenerys thought. Mother of monsters. What have I unleashed upon the world? A queen I am, but my throne is made of burned bones, and it rests on quicksand.

Without dragons, how could she hope to hold Meereen , much less win back Westeros? I am the blood of the dragon, she thought. If they are monsters, so am I. Jorah : You are a queen. In Westeros. Daenerys : It is such a long way. I was tired, Jorah. I was weary of war. I wanted to rest, to laugh, to plant trees and see them grow. I am only a young girl. Jorah : No. You are the blood of the dragon. Dragons plant no trees.
Remember that. Remember who you are, what you were made to be. Remember your words. Daenerys : Viserys? The frightened child who sheltered in my manse died on the Dothraki sea , and was reborn in blood and fire. This dragon queen who wears her name is a true Targaryen. Tyrion : If Daenerys is no more than a sweet young girl, the Iron Throne will cut her into sweet young pieces. Illyrio : Fear not, my little friend. The blood of Aegon the Dragon flows in her veins. You are her perfect prince, agreed, bright and bold and comely as any maid could wish.
Fireborn - Errata "Lost Lore"
Daenerys Targaryen is no maid, however. She is the widow of a Dothraki khal , a mother of dragons and a sacker of cities, Aegon the Conqueror with teats. She may not prove as willing as you wish. I know that she spent her childhood in exile, impoverished, living on dreams and schemes, running from one city to the next, always fearful, never safe, friendless but for a brother who was by all accounts half-mad I know that somewhere upon the grass , her dragons hatched, and so did she.
I know she is proud. How not? What else was left her but pride? I know she is strong. The Dothraki despise weakness. If Daenerys had been weak, she would have perished with Viserys. I know she is fierce. Astapor , Yunkai and Meereen are proof enough of that. She has survived assassins and conspiracies and fell sorceries , grieved for a brother and a husband and a son , trod the cities of the slavers to dust beneath her dainty sandaled feet. On wings of song I fly to you, Daenerys, the iron captain thought. Jump to: navigation , search.
