Khaleesi is a Dothraki title referring to the wife of the khal. A khaleesi's status varies greatly from khalasar to khalasar. She could be very influential, riding next to the khal, or she could be worth practically less than the khal's horse, since the khal's bloodriders would sometimes sleep with the khaleesi, but they would never share the khal's horse.

Known Khaleesi

In the books

It is Dothraki tradition that if a khal dies, his khaleesi must retire to join the crones at Vaes Dothrak, known as the dosh khaleen.

According to the TV series official pronunciation guide developed for the cast and crew, "Khaleesi" is pronounced "Khal-EE-see". According to professional linguist David J. Peterson, however, who was hired to develop the Dothraki language for the TV series, it should be pronounced “KHAH-lay-see,” not “ka-LEE-see.”
