|“||And to my son, The Stallion Who Will Mount the World, I will also pledge a gift. I will give him the Iron Chair that his mother's father sat upon. I will give him Seven Kingdoms. I, Drogo, will do this. I will take my Khalasar west to where the world ends, and ride wooden horses across the black salt water as no Khal has done before! I will kill the men in iron suits and tear down their stone houses! I will rape their women, take their children as slaves, and bring their broken gods back to Vaes Dothrak! This, I vow, I, Drogo, son of Bharbo. I swear before the Mother of Mountains as the stars look down in witness!||„|
|~ Khal Drogo's promise to take the Iron Throne for his son, in "You Win or You Die".|
Drogo, commonly known as Khal Drogo, is a character from A Song Of Ice And Fire and Game of Thrones. He is a supporting antagonist in Season 1.
He was a khal, a powerful warlord of the fearsome Dothraki nomads often referred as Khal Drogo. Daenerys Targaryen is promised to him at the beginning of the novels. He owns a palace in Vaes Dothrak and a nine-towered mansion in Pentos. His bloodriders are Cohollo, Qotho, and Haggo.
In the TV series, he was portrayed by Jason Momoa.
Illyrio Mopatis, serving as patron to the exiled prince, Viserys Targaryen, and his sister, Daenerys, arranges a marriage between Princess Daenerys and Khal Drogo during one of Drogo's visits to Pentos. In return for his bride, Drogo is to provide ten thousand Dothraki warriors for her brother's campaign to retake the Iron Throne.
The wedding takes place in the traditional Dothraki 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 offer fine weapons - a whip, an arakh, and a dragonbone bow - to the new khaleesi, who then gives them to her husband. Drogo's own gift to his bride is a magnificent silver mare.
Finally, Drogo leads Daenerys 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 is terrified of her bridegroom and expects to be raped.
Despite his fierce reputation, however, Drogo proves to be a surprisingly considerate lover. Although he and Dany share no common language, he establishes that he understood the word "no," then begins touching her gently. He does not begin to have intercourse with her until Dany expresses her consent and initiates it.
However, during their travel to Vaes Dothrak, Drogo repeatedly had aggressive sexual intercourse against Daenerys' will and would not stop despite her pain and cries. Initially, Daenerys thought about killing herself, but eventually, she started to enjoy it and her pain diminished until she also learned to tame her husband with Doreah's lessons. This set the tone for their marriage, which becomes a remarkably happy one. As Daenerys' new role as Khaleesi takes her out of her abusive brother's control, she begins to leave behind the timid, passive girl.
