This scene took place in the Game of Thrones season 3 on HBO. It featured the 8,000-strong slave soldiers. Dany decides to give away her young dragon to a slave trader, Kraznys for the soldiers. After she offers the dragon, Kraznys abuses her in the Valyrian language. He thinks that she doesn’t understand the language.

But suddenly she starts speaking Valyrian. She tricks the trader. She says Dracarys to the dragon, which means dragon fire, and a few moments later, Kraznys burns to death. Later on, she says, “Kesy tubi jemot dāervi tepan,” which means “I give you freedom today.”

Valyrian language was written by linguist David J. Peterson. Furthermore, he has created more than 50 languages which are mostly used on TV shows and movies.

Moreover, he created the Valyrian language with complete grammar to make it sound a real language.

David used the words from the George R. R. Martin book included in his “A Song of Ice and Fire.” Valar morghulis and Valar dohaeris are the famous words adapted in the series from the book.
