In the closing moments of the sixth season, Daenerys Targaryen (portrayed by Emilia Clarke) -- the only daughter and youngest child of King Aerys II Targaryen (a.k.a. "The Mad King") -- was shown with her supporters and massive army (a hundred thousand Dothraki and Unsullied) aboard the Greyjoy ships with Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal flying over the massive armada. She's sailing toward Westeros to finally reclaim the Iron Throne for House Targaryen. It won't be easy, though, especially now that Cersei Lannister has become the “Queen of the Seven Kingdoms.”
That inevitable and epic showdown between two of the most powerful women in the series can't get here soon enough; however, fans will have to wait a bit longer than usual, as the Season 7 premiere won't arrive in April. To make the wait less excruciating, I recommend checking out this awesome super-cut video TheGaroStudios put together showing the long and arduous journey Dany has been through the past 6 seasons.
Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues. It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men...all play the Game of Thrones.
Game of Thrones Season 7 will premiere on HBO in 2017.
