    If I had a nickel for every time a Tragaryen invaded Westeros from the East with 3 dragons I'd have two nickels... which isn't a lot but it's weird that happened twice

    Man, it still blows my mind. How did GRRM come up with all this in depth history and lore for each family and each castle for literally every generation going back like 5000 years from the year Game of Thrones is set in... so crazy...

    Targeryens came with 5 dragons to Dragonstone, before the Doom of Valyria, out of which Balerion was the youngest (the 4 older ones died at some point). Vhagar amd Meraxes were hatched sometime within the next century. The way you said it suggested that those three came with Targeryens before the doom ^^;

    Thanks to the announcement of House of the Dragon, this vid's about to skyrocket.

    Also Harren seems just as dumb as his Ironborn descendants: "lets 1v6 the Iron Throne with our wasteland islands"
