At long last, the finale of Game of Thrones is nearly upon us. The story that George R.R. Martin seems incapable of finishing is about to reach its conclusion courtesy of Benioff and Weiss. As the end approaches, it’s a perfect time to look back and reflect on the legacy of this story that took the world by storm and how it will be remembered in the future. One of the elements likely to stand tallest against the test of time is its plethora of strong female characters and which of them is stronger than the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen?

Amazing Artwork Of Daenerys Targaryen

Social media is absolutely brimming with portraits of Daenerys so I thought it’d be fun to take a moment and recognize some of my favorites. Interpretations of the character as played by Emilia Clarke are varied both in terms of commitment to detail and realism as well as the mediums artists use to bring the character alive as art. It proves the enduring strength of the character that she brings just as much power to the viewer as a piece of comic-like digital pop art as she does in a hyper realistic line drawing done with ink and pencils. Some of the artwork is speculative wish-fulfillment like a rendering of Daenerys sitting on the Iron Throne caressing a baby (human, no dragons here).

In the end, no matter how you prefer to see your favorite Dragon Mama, social media is filled with options done by incredibly talented artists to satiate your appetite and tide you over until we all find out who wins the Game of Thrones.

Here are some of our favorites.
