↳   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.
