Maybe they're plotting to bring Emila Clark back as "Grandmother of Dragons." Gray her up a bit and you'll have a family resemblance recognizable 300 years in the future.

From the moment Dany's brother was killed, I didn't find her to be all that heroic.
From what I recall, her brother conspired against her and put her in the situation she was in. So, she rebelled against the oppression.
He basically said " I don't care if you have to whore you out to a thousand horse lords to get me y crown, I will" Obviously not verbatim but pretty much the exchange. She was still pretty ok with it right up until he threatened to take the Dragon Eggs, then he got his golden crown with a nod from her.

I likely wasn't clear. After her brother was killed, she lost her victim role but it was replaced with that primarily of divine righteousness and entitlement. It's not a trait I root for and become attached to. Juxtapose her "growth" to the qarth merchant who would have let her die in the dessert. She had the makings for a good antagonist. A good villain. Even an empathetic villain. But she's post brother's death, she was never been on spectrum of "good guy" for my viewing.

She was driven by entitlement. Being opposed to slavery isn't enough for me to want a person to rule the world. She was a power mad (inbred mad, whatever) leader who was good at gaining followers and not necessarily running a kingdom.

Not the worst way to go.
