Happy Birthday, Emilia Clarke!

Emilia Clarke turns 27 today, and though she tops our list of Game of Thrones stars who look completely different in real life, Emilia's a certified hottie in Westeros as well as in the real world.

In celebration of Emilia's birthday, we've decided to pay tribute to her Mother of Dragons alter-ego with some of Daenerys Targaryen's  most memorable moments from the hit HBO series.

Yes, to many fans, Emilia will always be the Khaleesi, but her life and career are both blossoming outside of the Seven Kingdoms.

Reportedly, Emilia is dating Kit Harington, her co-star on GoT and she's been cast as Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator: Genesis.

But while Emilia might rather star on Girls, we remain eternally grateful that she found a home east of the Narrow Sea.

Not only does the sprawling nature of GoT's storylines give us more time to gaze at Emilia, the show somehow features more nudity in a single episode than Girls has in its entire run.

So we get to see more of Emilia in two ways. We call that a win-win.

Check out the gallery above and watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic to enjoy Emilia at her bravest and most, um...exposed.
