House Targaryen is a noble family of Valyrian descent that escaped the Doom. They lived for centuries on the island of Dragonstone until Aegon Targaryen and his sisters rode their dragons to the conquest of the Seven Kingdoms. House Targaryen ruled as the Kings of Westeros for nearly 300 years.
Queen Visenya Targaryen was the older of Aegon I’s sisters. During the War of Conquest, she rode the dragon, Vhagar, to battle. Aegon’s eldest sister was a warrior more comfortable in ringmail than in silk. She was described as having a harsh beauty and was reputed to have dabbled in sorcery.
King Aegon Targaryen, the First of His Name, also known as Aegon the Conqueror or Aegon the Dragon, was the conqueror of the Seven Kingdoms and the founder of the ruling Targaryen dynasty of Westeros.
Queen Rhaenys Targaryen was the younger of Aegon I’s sister-queens. Rhaenys was Aegon’s favorite sister-wife. She was known as less stern and more playful than Visenya. She was also interested in music and poetry.
