- Columbia University professor Bruce Craven (who wrote a book called Win or Die: Leadership Secrets from Game of Thrones) argues that Dany's ability to build a loyal following is unparalled
- He calls her a "loyal freedom fighter" unafraid to confront danger to protect those who follow her
- He points to Missandei's line "she is the queen we chose"
- However he argues that her weakness is that she doesn't know what her purpose is. If she wants to protect the vulnerable, she shouldn't care about who sits the Iron Throne, but if her goal is the throne she must confront that she may be harming vulnerable people.
