From the "Game Of Thrones Wiki":


Viserys Targaryen is a major character in 'Game of Thrones'. He is played by starring cast member Harry Lloyd and débuts in the first episode of the first season. He only appears in the first season. 

Viserys is the exiled head of House Targaryen and believes himself the rightful ruler of Westeros. He arranges the marriage of his younger sister Daenerys Targaryen to the dothraki Khal Drogo to provide the army he needs to retake his throne. He grows impatient with Drogo and threatens to kill Daenerys if Drogo does not deliver his crown as agreed. Drogo responds by killing Viserys in a unique and spectacular fashion. 

Viserys is the son and heir of King Aerys II Targaryen, the former ruler of Westeros. Aerys was killed during the Sack of King's Landing during Robert's Rebellion. Viserys was safe with his pregnant mother in hiding on the island of Dragonstone. After his mother died in childbirth, Viserys and his baby sister Daenerys were smuggled to safety in the Free Cities across the Narrow Sea.

Viserys claims the title King of the Seven Kingdoms and refers to Robert Baratheon only as 'the Usurper'. After years spent fruitlessly wandering the Free Cities seeking military support to retake his throne, Viserys and Daenerys became guests of the powerful Magister Illyrio Mopatis in Pentos.


Daenerys Targaryen, sometimes called Dany, is a major character in 'Game of Thrones'. She is played by starring cast member Emilia Clarke and débuts in the first episode of the first season. The role of Daenerys was originally played by Tamzin Merchant in the unaired pilot episode, but the role was recast for the series proper for undisclosed reasons.

She is the only surviving child of King Aerys II Targaryen who was ousted from the Iron Throne in Robert's Rebellion. She lives in exile in the East. She was married to the dothraki Khal Drogo but lost her husband and unborn son to the manipulations of the vengeful maegi Mirri Maz Duur. Her marriage gave her the confidence to lead and the belief in herself as the rightful queen of Westeros. She plans to retake her homeland. She hatched three dragons by walking into Drogo's funeral pyre with the eggs, her dragons are the first in the world for hundreds of years.

Daenerys is the only daughter and youngest child of King Aerys II Targaryen, the Mad King. Her father died during the Sack of King's Landing before she was even born. Her mother fled to the island of Dragonstone to escape the usurper Robert Baratheon who installed himself as king. On the night Daenerys was born on Dragonstone, a vast storm raged. For this reason she is sometimes called Daenerys Stormborn. Her mother died soon after she was born. As a baby, she was taken into exile in the Free Cities with her brother, Viserys, by loyal retainers. 

After years spent fruitlessly trying to raise support to retake the Iron Throne, Viserys and Daenerys were given sanctuary by Magister Illyrio Mopatis in the Free City of Pentos. She dreams of finding a peaceful home and a place to belong. She lives in fear of her brother's temper and is meek and malleable.

At first.......

Two for Tuesday!
