There's no doubt that HBO’s Game Of Thrones is one of the best television shows in recent memory. It’s a sprawling epic of Shakespearian scope where brutal action scenes are only half as interesting as the political machinations and family drama bubbling underneath the surface. But for all of the show’s excellent qualities, there sure is a lot of ugliness that populates best-selling author George R.R. Martin’s world.
From burly, bloody men to manipulative women, Game Of Thrones is littered with unattractive people both inside and out. But shining amongst the mayhem and bloodshed is Daenerys Targaryen, the timid daughter of a slain king, and, as the show's first season finale revealed, a baby dragon's best friend. With her platinum blonde hair and gorgeous features, Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) has become an instant fan favorite and one of the best reasons to tune into the series.
So to get you ready for the second season premiere this Sunday (at 9 p.m. EST), put those toy swords down and bask in our gallery of Daenerys Targaryen's Hottest Game Of Thrones Photos.
