↳   House Targaryen is a noble family of Valyrian descent, and is the only family of dragonlords who survived the Doom of Valyria. They left Valyria twelve years before the Doom occurred and resided for more than a century on the island of Dragonstone, until Aegon the Conqueror and his sister-wives began their conquest in 2 BC. House Targaryen ruled as the kings on the Iron Throne and as the Great House of the crownlands for nearly three hundred years. A total of thirteen Targaryens kings sat on the Iron Throne, until the reign of Aerys II Targaryen ended with Robert’s Rebellion, in which the Targaryens were overthrown. The two surviving children of Aerys II, Viserys and Daenerys Targaryen, fled into exile, and have resided in Essos ever since.

House Targaryen Ladies

Pre Got Fancasting: Eva Green as Tyanna of the Tower

The beautiful Tyanna became Maegor’s lover during his exile in Pentos; she was rumored to be Queen Alys Harroway’s paramour as well.After Maegor was crowned king, his rule was challenged by the Faith of the Seven with a trial of seven. Maegor won but was grievously wounded. Twenty-eight days later Alys arrived from Pentos with Tyanna. The Dowager Queen, Visenya Targaryen, after meeting with Tyanna, gave the king over to her care alone—a fact that troubled Maegor’s supporters. Tyanna married Maegor in 42 AC.The Dowager Queen died in 44 AC. In the confusion after her death, Aenys I Targaryen’s widow, Queen Alyssa Velaryon, slipped away from Dragonstone with her children, as well as with the sword Dark Sister. Alyssa and Aenys’s second son, Prince Viserys, had been kept at the Red Keep as the king’s squire, however, and he suffered for her flight. He died after nine days of questioning at the hands of Tyanna of the Tower.[2]Tyanna served as mistress of whisperers on her husband’s small council. When Queen Alys gave birth to a monstrosity in 48 AC, Queen Tyanna convinced Maegor that it was due to Alys having secret affairs. This led to the extinction of House Harroway. Tyanna eventually confessed her responsibility for the abominations that were born of Maegor’s seed, claiming she had poisoned his other brides. She was killed by Maegor’s own hand in 48 AC, her heart cut out with the sword Blackfyre and thrown to his dogs.
