Khal Drogo is a powerful warlord of the fearsome Dothrakowie nomads. He marries Daenerys Targaryen and grows to love her, promising to invade Westeros for her sake, but died before the invasion could begin. He is the son of Bharbo. In the Gra o Tron TV series Drogo is played by Jason Momoa.
Like most Dothrakowie, Drogo has copper-colored skin, black hair, and black eyes. He is tall and muscular, and moves gracefully. He has a long, drooping mustache and a long braid hung with tiny bells that hangs down to his thighs, symbolizing his status among the Dothrakowie as an undefeated warlord.
Drogo's favorite horse is a lean red stallion, called simply "the Red," as it is not a Dothrakowie custom to give individual names to animals.
Drogo was born to Bharbo, about whom nothing else is known. From an early age Drogo was an extraordinarily gifted warrior even among the fierce Dothrakowie; before the age of thirty he led a khalasar forty thousand strong, the largest on the Morze Dothraków. He had never been defeated. Cohollo, Qotho and Haggo served him as Brat Krwis.
Drogo owned a palace in the sacred Dothrakowie city of Vaes Dothrak. He also possessed a nine-towered mansion in Pentos, given to him by the city's ruling magisters as part of their policy of bribing the Dothrakowie not to loot the city.
Gra o Tron
The canny Illyrio Mopatis, serving as patron to the exiled Viserys and Daenerys Targaryen, arranged a marriage between Princess Daenerys and Khal Drogo during one of Drogo's visits to Pentos. In return for his beautiful and highborn bride, Drogo was to provide ten thousand Dothrakowie warriors for her brother's campaign to retake the Żelazny Tron.
The wedding took place in the traditional Dothrakowie fashion, with Drogo's entire khalasar gathering in a field outside Pentos for a day-long feast, punctuated with several deadly fights and couples having intercourse in the open. In accordance with tradition, Drogo's bloodriders offered fine weapons - a whip, an arakh, and a smokbone bow - to the new khaleesi, who then gave them to her husband. Drogo's own gift to his bride was a magnificent silver mare.
Finally he led her off to consummate the marriage. A thirteen-year-old girl who had been abused by her brother for most of her life and had been given no say in the marriage, Daenerys was terrified of her bridegroom and expected to be raped. Despite his fierce reputation, however, Drogo proved to be a surprisingly considerate lover. Although he and Dany shared no common language, he established that he understood the word "no," then began touching her gently. He did not begin to have intercourse with her until Dany expressed her consent and initiated it. This tender wedding night set the tone for their marriage, which would become a remarkably happy one.
As Daenerys' new role as khaleesi took her out of her abusive brother's control, she began to leave behind the timid, passive girl she had been, blossoming into a strong, confident young woman and a natural leader. As Dany learned to speak the Dothrakowie language, Drogo proved a quick study at picking up the Wspólny Język of Westeros, though he retained a barbarous accent. He addressed Dany affectionately as "moon of my life," while she called him "my sun and stars." Drogo treated her with respect and valued her opinions; although he did not understand or share her objections to the traditional Dothrakowie practices of raping and enslaving conquered peoples, Drogo supported Dany when she ordered his warriors to cease, delighted by his wife's growing courage. The pair grew to love one another deeply.
Drogo's relationship with Viserys, however, was not nearly as felicitous. While Daenerys was respectful of Dothrakowie culture and eager to learn about and embrace it, her brother showed nothing but contempt for the Dothrakowie "savages," making it clear that he tolerated them only as a necessary means to obtaining his birthright. As Dothrakowie leaders earned their positions through strength, the nomads had little sympathy for Viserys' belief that he deserved to be king by the mere right of his birth and that being denied it was a terrible injustice. The issue finally came to a head when Viserys broke the ancient taboo against bloodshed in Vaes Dothrak by drawing his blade and threatening the life of Daenerys and her unborn child, demanding his crown. Although forbidden to spill blood in the sacred city, Drogo demonstrated the cunning that had made him a great warlord by announcing that Viserys would have the crown of gold he deserved, then upending a pot of molten gold over his head, killing him.
In Vaes Dothrak the women of the dosh khaleen proclaimed that Drogo and Daenerys's unborn child would be the Stallion Who Mounts the World, a prophesied leader in Dothrakowie legend. Drogo had little interest in invading Westeros, a land that held nothing in particular that the Dothrakowie wanted and was located across the sea, which they had always feared. However, he reconsidered after an assassin tried to kill Dany and claim Robert Baratheon's reward. Enraged by the attempt on his wife's life, Drogo reaffirmed his commitment to conquer the Siedem Królestw for her sake and seat their son on the throne of her ancestors. He pillaged several towns in Lhazar in order to harvest slaves to exchange for warships which would take his horde across the sea. While in Lhazar, Drogo's khalasar battled and defeated the rival khalasar of Khal Ogo. Drogo slew Ogo himself, but took a wound to the chest.
Though Drogo was unconcerned with his minor wound, Daenerys convinced him to let Mirri Maz Duur, a Lhazareen maegi (herb-woman) she had rescued, make him a poultice. The poultice itched, and Drogo tore it off, causing the wound to fester. Drogo's condition deteriorated until he fell from his horse, a symbol in Dothrakowie culture that indicated he was no longer fit to lead. As he lingered near death, Daenerys convinced Mirri Maz Duur to use her blood magic to preserve his life. The maegi betrayed her in revenge for the attack on her village, and the ritual only returned Drogo to a catatonic state, while causing their child Rhaego to die in Daenerys' womb. Realizing that Drogo would never return to his former state, Dany smothered him with a pillow and built him a funeral pyre as his khalasar broke apart. She burned his body on the pyre along with Mirri Maz Duur and entered the flames with her petrified smok eggs. The flames magically traded life for life, killing Mirri and hatching the three smoks while leaving Daenerys unharmed.
