Khalakka is a Dothraki title held by the heir to a khalasar.[1]


The sentence "Khalakka dothrae" in the Dothraki language can be translated in the Common Tongue as "The prince is riding".[2]

Unlike in the feudal Westeros, when a khal dies his heir does not automatically succeed him. He has to prove his strength to the khalasar in order to be accepted by them as their new leader.[3]

According to David J. Peterson, the female child of a khal would be called a khalakki.[4]
