Viserys Targaryen, zwany Żebraczym Królem jest dziedzicem swojego ojca Aerysa II i brata Rhaegara po ich śmierci w czasie Rebelii Roberta. Wojna zmieniła go jednak w wygnańca, który spiskuje w celu odzyskania Żelaznego Tronu. Sam siebie tytułuje jako Viserys Targaryen, Trzeci Tego Imienia, Król Andalów, Rhoynarów i Pierwszych Ludzi, Władca Siedmiu Królestw i Obrońca Królestwa.
Viserys was a young boy at the time of Rebelia Roberta. When his brother Rhaegar was defeated upon the Trident, Viserys and his pregnant mother, Rhaella, were evacuated to Smocza Skała. After the death of his mother and the end of the war, Viserys and his sister, Daenerys, were smuggled to Braavos by the loyalist Ser Willem Darry. There they lived under Ser Willem's protection until his death.
Ser Willem's servants later evicted the last Targaryens, forcing them to wander the Wolne Miasta as guests of powerful citizens. Their welcome eventually faded, and they were forced to sell off their possessions to survive, even Rhaella's crown. When Viserys sold his mother's crown the last joy had gone from him, leaving only rage, men started calling him The Beggar King. While his relationship with his sister was initially warm, Viserys grew to resent Daenerys for killing their mother during her birth, and began treating her poorly. He would frequently warn her not to "wake the smok" and incite his anger.
Viserys is an ambitious man but also impatient, delusional and blind to reality. He sees himself as a rightful King due instant respect and admiration and takes anything less as an insult. He refuses to accept the reality of Ród Targaryenów's situation when Robert Baratheon took the Żelazny Tron. Viserys believes that among the houses that would rise for him upon his landing would be the Tyrells, Redwynes, Darrys, Greyjoys, and Martells.
Gra o Tron
In Pentos, Viserys meets Illyrio Mopatis, who takes an interest in returning Viserys to the Żelazny Tron in return for rewards upon his ascension. Illyrio and Viserys arrange a marriage between Daenerys and Khal Drogo, a powerful Dothrakowie horselord who promises Viserys 10,000 men to conquer the Siedem Królestw. Viserys, while willing to wed Daenerys to Drogo, is also resentful of having to give her up, and the night before the wedding tries to enter her room and at least claim her virginity. Illyrio, however, had the foresight to post guards on her room so this would not happen.
Viserys insists on traveling with Drogo to ensure the Khal honors the agreement. Illyrio tries to stop him by offering Viserys the use of his manse, but Viserys declines. Viserys believes that Drogo is delaying fulfilment of his promise and Viserys grows increasingly insistent on making a start to the invasion. Viserys believes he sold Dany to Drogo and that the Khal has not paid him for her. As Ser Jorah Mormont explains, the Dothrakowie do not buy or sell, but rather receive gifts and give gifts back eventually in return. He refuses to listen to Illyrio and Ser Jorah, who tell him repeatedly that the Khal sees Daenerys as a gift, and would give Viserys a gift (an army) in return, but only in the Khal's own time. Viserys is too foolish and impatient to listen.
He tries to browbeat Daenerys into persuading Drogo, but with her new position of authority as khaleesi she begins standing up for herself. After he tries to hit Daenerys, she has his horse taken away, forcing Viserys to walk. This is taboo amongst Dothrakowie as a man who is not on horseback is no man at all, and earns him the mocking nickname Khal Rhae Mhar, "The Sorefoot King". Khal Drogo later offers him a place in a cart and Viserys accepts, in his ignorance believing it the Khal's way of apologizing to him for the wrong Dany did to him; unknown to Viserys, this is a greater insult then walking on foot, as carts are for cripples, eunuchs, the very old or very young, earning Viserys the new nickname Khal Rhaggat, "The Cart King". At Vaes Dothrak, Viserys gets drunk and again insists that Drogo give him his crown. Viserys draws a sword — banned in the sacred city of Vaes Dothrak as it is forbidden to shed a free man's blood there — and threatens Daenerys's unborn child. In response, Drogo announces that he is giving Viserys his crown; he melts down his belt of golden medallions and upends the pot over Viserys's head, fatally "crowning" him, though not one drop of blood is split in doing so.
After Viserys's death, Daenerys tries to remember Viserys as her brother and a good person behind all of his cruelty. Dany states that Viserys was cruel and weak and frightened but he was still her brother . His smok will do what he could not. She names her white smok Viserion in his memory.
Although dead, Viserys is still an influence on Dany and her thoughts sometimes turn to the brother who raised her. In Qarth after being refused point black by the Pureborn she remembers how he was forced to survive in order to take care of then and the negative effect it had on him and that she has now found herself in the same position:
“I have become the most splendid beggar in the world, but a beggar all the same. She hated it, as her brother must have. All those years of running from city to city one step ahead of the Usurper’s knives, pleading for help from archons and princes and magisters, buying our food with flattery. He must have known how they mocked him. Small wonder he turned so angry and bitter. In the end it had driven him mad. It will do the same to me if I let it. Part of her would have liked nothing more than to lead her people back to Vaes Tolorro, and make the dead city bloom. No that is defeat. I have something Viserys never had. I have the Smok. The Smok are all the difference.” 
It is revealed that while Viserys and Daenerys were in Braavos under the care of Ser Willem Darry, a secret pact was signed by Ser Willem and Oberyn Martell with the Sealord of Braavos a witness, promising that if Viserys wed Arianne Martell he would receive Dorne's aid in placing him upon the Żelazny Tron. Due to Viserys' impatience, he was made purposefully unaware of this, lest he try to claim his bride too early, thereby bringing the wrath of the Żelazny Tron on Dorne.
In Daenerys Targaryen's final chapter in Taniec ze Smokami, when she wanders through the wasteland on her way back to Meereen, she sees a vision of Viserys walking with his "crown", molten gold dripping down his burned face. He repeatedly insults her as he did in life before the waking dream fades away.
Cytaty z Viserysa
|“||Wrócimy do domu z armią, słodka siostro. Z armią Khala Drogo, tylko w ten sposób. A jeśli z tego powodu będziesz musiała go poślubić i pójść z nim do łóżka, to tak zrobisz. Pozwoliłbym całemu jego khalasarowi przerżnąć cię, gdyby było trzeba, pozwoliłbym na to czterdziestu tysiącom jego ludzi, a nawet ich koniom, gdybym za to miał otrzymać moją armię.||”|

Cytaty o Viserysie
|“||Viserys nie jest nawet cieniem żmii.||”|
|“||Matka umarła, wydając mnie na świat, a mój ojciec i brat, Rhaegar, umarli jeszcze wcześniej. Gdyby nie Viserys, nie wiem, czy bym znała chociaż ich imiona. Tylko on mi został. Jest wszystkim, co mam.||”|
|“||His soul was starved to death.||”|
|“||Even as a child, your brother Viserys oft seemed to be his father's son, in ways Rhaegar never did.||”|
|“||A vain young man and greedy. Viserys lusted after his father's throne, but he lusted after Daenerys too, and was loath to give her up. The night before the princess wed he tried to steal into her bed, insisting that if he couldn't have her hand, he would claim her maidenhead. Had I not taken the precaution of posting guards upon her door, Viserys might have undone years of planning...Viserys was Mad Aerys's son, just so.||”|
|“||The last son of Mad King Aerys. He’s been going about the Free Cities since before I was born, calling himself a king. Well, Mother says the Dothraki finally crowned him. With molten gold. ||”|
|“||He sounds an utter fool.||”|
