Game of Thrones” is based on the popular novel series “A Song of Ice and Fire” written by George R.R. Martin, and there are details, characters and more than were in books but not on the show. In the books, when Daenerys was in the House of the Undying in Qarth, she was warned with a prophecy.

Fans who read the books may remember. The prophecy told her Daenerys that she will be betrayed three times: once for blood and once for gold and once for love. Although the prophecy wasn’t in the show, the betrayals were.

In Season 1, Mirri Maz Duur killed Daenerys’ unborn son (Rhaego) to save Khal Drogo’s life, but he was left in a catatonic state.

That was blood. Jorah Mormont once betrayed Daenerys for gold. He worked as a spy for Varys, under Robert Baratheon’s command, and Jorah gave them information regarding Daenerys.

Who will betray for love?

Many fans say that Daenerys's Hand will be the one to betray her. Tyrion will betray the Queen she serves for his love for his brother, Jaime. This was further heightened in “The Spoils of War” with the two Lannisters on opposite sides of the war. Tyrion wanted Jaime safe; he whispered: “Flee you, idiot.”

Other fans say that Missandei will betray Daenerys. In Season 4, Daenerys exiled Jorah from Mereen after she found out about his betrayal. She warned Missandei never to betray her. Recently in Season 7, Greyworm, with the Unsullied, took Casterly Rock, but they were stuck there after Euron Greyjoy’s fleet destroyed theirs.

Fans are worried that Missandei might betray Daenerys to save him.

The Hand of the Queen

More fans are theorizing that Tyrion will be the one to betray Daenerys for love. Tyrion is conflicted between his loyalty to Daenerys and his love for Jaime, even if he supports Cersei, their enemy. More so, there is a growing difference between Daenerys and Tyrion.

Though they have a similar goal of getting Daenerys on the Iron Throne, there is a difference on how to achieve this aim. Since their arrival at Westeros, Daenerys wanted to take the throne from Cersei by force. She has (or had) an army, a fleet and three dragons; they will obviously win.

The only thing holding her back is Tyrion, he told her that she is not in Westeros to become ‘Queen of the Ashes.’ He pointed out that burning Westeros to take the throne is not the best strategy.

Tyrion is a wise man and a great politician. He believes in the importance of alliances, makes use of his intellect for strategies.

However, after Daenerys’ continuous defeat, she had enough of his ‘clever plans.’ In “The Spoils of War,” Daenerys brought her Drogon and the Dothraki to battle against the Lannisters and the Tarlys. After the battle, Daenerys offered the remaining men to bend the knee or die. Randyll and Dickon Tarly did not bend their knees and were burnt to their deaths. Tyrion felt uneasy and conflicted regarding Daenerys’ methods; he even tried to convince her not to kill the Tarlys.
