"Not a Queen, a Khaleesi."
Daenerys Targaryen to Ser Jorah Mormont.

Khaleesi is a Dothraki title used to denote the wife of a Khal. Due to the Dothraki stigma against women, a khaleesi has less power than a khal, and is even rated below a ko or bloodrider. If her husband dies before her, his bloodriders will take her to Vaes Dothrak to join the Dosh khaleen, where she spends the rest of her life. The only known circumstance where a khaleesi has assumed the authority of a khal (albeit, over a fraction of the khalasar) has been Daenerys Targaryen.
