Warning: This question contains spoilers from A Dance With Dragons.

Danaerys takes Meereen and establishes her claim over it, as well as feeling a sense of protectiveness for the people she has freed there.

During her stay and also along her path to get there, many people flock to her cause, most of whom are companies of sellswords or similar armies.

It seems like there are a lot, and I'm having a difficult time remembering who they all are.

Please provide a break-down of who her companies are.

Bonus - name their leaders and approximate sizes as well.

The ones which I know so far are:

aaaaaaaaand my mind goes blank after those!

I know I'm venturing into list territory here, but I am convinced that this list is limited.

  • @SystemDown I remember something like, the Freedmen, Stalwart shields?, and some others which I don't fully remember right now. Might do some more digging... – Möoz Jun 30 '14 at 22:35

    @Mooz, isn't also ship companies ? I remember her using some ships... – Bebs V Nov 16 '16 at 10:32

In addition to @Nika G.'s answer, I add the ships Illyrio Mopatis offered Daenerys.

  1. Summer Sun, renamed Vhagar. 200 oars.

  2. Saduleon, renamed Balerion. Merchant ship, captained by Groleo

  3. Joso's Prank, renamed Meraxes. 200 oars. Nicknamed Joso's Cock after being used to penetrate the eastern gate of Meereen.

However, during the siege of Meereen, this ships were dismembered to build siege instruments.
