Where Did the Dragons of GOT Came From..??

This article is spoiler free, it contains no information regarding the recent events in the episodes and it will not mention any of the show.
It is for educational purposes, for all of you to be able to know about Valyria. Why it is so important for Daenerys to mention this when she introduces herself to master Kraznys.

 

 Who are the Targaryens and why does she claim she is of the blood of old Valyria?

First dragons found in the caves of their mountains.
We will start where the narrative takes us. The Valyrians were shepherds, who were in the mountains of their homeland, caring for their flocks. When suddenly they discovered Dragons on the caves of the mountains surrounding them.
Many of the shepherds died, trying to tame the beasts and based on trial and error. What some also claim as Magic, they were able to tame them, connecting them in a deeper way. Both man and dragon and therefore being able to mount them.
Once dragon riders, the Valyrians created what they later called “The Valyrian Freehold”. That was some sort of republic for all Valyrian families, including the Targaryens and worked pretty much as a democracy.

Valyrian Freehold
The Targaryens, at the time, were prominent among the Dragon Lords. Some say, most Valyrians had a particular appearance but the Targaryens were always considered the most particular of them all. The Masters claim the Targaryen’s striking look (considered strange at the time given they were the only ones with white hair and uncanny connection to the dragons) was due to their continued mingling with the creatures and the magic, the dragons passed on to them.

A dragon would grow fond of his rider and when the rider died, the dragon would then find another member of the family to be loyal and devoted to and then be rode by that member of the family as well. They were particularly fond of Targaryens and so stayed loyal to their family. They became known as the blood of the dragon for that reason.
The empire the Valyrians built extended almost all over the old world of Essos, conquering cities, and the older Ghiscari empire. The Valyrians extended through the land enslaving people and implementing their own traditions onto the newly conquered people.

Valyrians became skilled at sorcery and metallurgy and created the Valyrian steel of which much is said still.
Their reach extended through the area and created their empire, solely cemented on their unparalleled spell forged steel weapons and their dragon’s breath.

The Valyrian expansion and conquest.
Their expansion over the land was something the people had never seen before, having the only existing civilization at the time. (The ghiscari, their capital city of Ghis, turn to ash with their dragons fiery breath, wiping them from the face of the earth) and prevailing upon all other peoples.
Imposing their language on the region, their gods, and culture, the Valyrian prevailed for nearly five thousand years until the cataclysmic event known as the Doom of Valyria wiped them out.
The peninsula they had been born in, became shattered in this cataclysmic event, becoming what is now known as the smoking sea.
Everyone thought the dragons were lost, as well as their recorded history and spells, knowledge and magic. Their empire had collapsed into the sea by the same fire that they had built it upon. What caused the doom? No one knows for certain, some say it was a volcano that erupted, others say the Valyrians had gotten overpowered by their own magic but whichever the case is, the devastation was total, with the exception of a small rocky island called Dragonstone located in the narrow sea, here, dwelled the Targaryens, the last of old Valyria.

Here, the Targaryens would wait patiently for a hundred years. Until they decided to unleash the might of their dragons on a different continent, now the one called “Westeros”.

As a foot note, the Targaryens had fled Valyria a few hundred years before the doom. Since they were known for having prophetic dreams and one Targaryen daughter warned the family so they could flee Valyria before the doom and therefore stay alive in the world by moving to dragon stone.
