A Game of Thrones

Khal Drogo rides his stallion to greet Daenerys Targaryen outside Pentos.[2]

After Drogo becomes ill, he falls off his great red stallion.[3] Mirri Maz Duur puts Drogo into a bath, and has his stallion brought into the tent so she can use its blood. Rakharo, Quaro, and Aggo force the screaming stallion to the tub, despite the horse being frightened by the stench of death. Mirri Maz Duur chants, then uses a red bronze knife covered in glyphs to cut the horse's throat so the blood fills the tub.[3] Later, as Daenerys walks into Drogo's funeral pyre, she glimpses Drogo on his smoky stallion for just a moment.[1]


Strength of the mount, go into the rider. Strength of the beast, go into the man.[3]

—singing of Mirri Maz Duur
