Khal Drogo, played in Game of Thrones by Jason Momoa, is a true alpha male. He is tall, strong and fearless. We meet him in the beginning of the show when Viserys Targaryen arranges for his sister, the fragile Daenerys, to marry Khal Drogo. Viserys tells his sister that Drogo was never defeated in battle and that is why he has such a long braid. He is ruthless and leads his people the way he thinks is right. When someone is disrespectful to his new wife, Khal Drogo kills him with his bear hands.
Everything we see and learn about Drogo makes us think he is the strongest character. No match to anyone else and that he will win it all. How naive we were…
The fact he was killed in the first season is surprising because he is a character we remember throughout the eight seasons and has a tremendous impact on the way things unfolded. Moreover, despite being so savage, he is one of the more beloved characters from the show and Khal Drogo costume is still very popular.
