The House Targaryen is a noble House of Valyrian descent that escaped the curse. Its settlements were the capital of the King’s landing Kingdom, the island of Rocadragon and the summer refuge Castle. Its emblem is a three-headed dragon of gules in Sabre field, representing Aegon I and her sisters Rhaenys and Visenya. Their motto is Fire and Blood. Its members lived for centuries on the island of Rock dragon until Aegon Targaryen and his sisters mounted their dragons and conquered six of the Seven Kingdoms. They ruled Westeros for almost 300 years until Robert’s rebellion.

Their swords, ancient steel valyrio, both in current whereabouts unknown, are Fuegoscuro and Sister Dark. The Targaryen are descendants of one of the noble families of the Franco fief of Valyria who escaped the Curse of Valyria and settled on the island of Rocadragon. From Valyria they maintain a strange beauty; the expression “Dragon Blood” refers to a set of typical features of the ancient Valyria: platinum or silver blond hair and violet, lilac or indigo eyes.

The House Targaryen was part of the forty ancient noble houses better known as the dragon lords, who ruled the Franco fief of Valyria, a vast empire encompassing much of Essos. However, the Targaryens were considered one of the smaller houses. The Curse of Valyria occurred about twelve years after Aenar Targaryen and his family left to Rocadragón along with their five dragons going Valyria because of his daughter, Daenys the Dreamer, predicted the Curse, and persuaded his father to abandon his land. In Valyria, it was seen as a sign of weakness.

During the next hundred years, known as the bloody century, they maintained their settlement in Rocadragon, creating an impressive fortress on the island. During that time four of the dragons died, leaving only Balerion alive. However, two eggs hatched, from which Vhagar and Meraxes would be born.

Viserys Targaryen, pretender to the Iron Throne, and his sister Daenerys are in Pentos. Take years and years of touring the Free Cities seems to elude assassins sent to finish them, the last of his House. In his attempt to get an army to allow him to reconquer the Seven Kingdoms, Viserys agrees to his sister’s wedding to Khal Drogo, a great Lord of the Dothraki, a people of fierce warriors. After the link, in which Daenerys receives as a gift from Magister Illyrio Mopatis three petrified dragon eggs, and with the support of an exiled knight, Jorah Mormont, they undertake a journey to Vaes Dothrak, the sacred place of the Dothraki, to present Daenerys al dosh khaleen. There, a deranged Viserys will find death at the hands of Drogo. After losing her husband because of wounds received in combat and the dark arts of Mirri Maz Duur, Daenerys manages to hatch the eggs, three dragons by the fire of the funeral pyre of her husband. They are named Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal in honor of their husband and their dead brothers.

With the arrival of Daenerys Targaryen to Westeros in this seventh season of Game of Thrones have become quite simple comparisons with his father, Aerys II, the king overthrown by Robert Baratheon before the start of the series. The nobles of the North distrust any of that name because they remember the monarch’s trope, and Cersei seeks allies for his cause by always speaking of Daenerys as “the daughter of the Mad King.”
