Initial History of the Targaryen dynasty(Targaryen family tree):

The Targaryens landed in Westeros, leaving back their original home. They were residents of the continent of Essos. The home destination got destroyed because of a cataclysmic event. The event was Doom of Valyria, and they need to leave their origin place.

Targaryen family tree fire and blood spanned across 16 generations.

King Aegon I Targaryen:

It becomes difficult to identify every family member. We need to take the name of King Aegon I Targaryen, who gave visibility to this dynasty.

He was also famous as Aegon the Conqueror. He became the first Targaryens who united and conquered the kingdoms of Westeros. Who helped him in this mission? It was his three dragons.

To move forward and talk about the Targaryen dynasty, we will start with Aemon Targaryen. He was the oldest Targaryen. We are aware of him and saw him as the oldest ones in the show ending with Jon. Very recently, we came to know him as Targaryen heir.

Aemon Targaryen

Aemon Targaryen, whom we met him in his senior age, in first few initial seasons of Game of Throne. He played the role of Night’s Watch master for many years. Later on, people forgot him and that too even as a Targaryen.

If we check the Aemon Targaryen family tree, we will find him as grand-uncle of Aerys II Targaryen. Aerys II was Daenerys’ father, as we all know him as the Mad King. When Aemon was a young boy, the throne got offered to him, and he refused. By default, Aegon V, his brother, got the throne. There are a countless number of children who were born from Aegon.

Aegon V

We know Aegon as Maekar I fourth son and Aerys II’s grandfather. Aegon, also known as “EGG,” turned fifteenth Targaryen king and Seven Kingdoms ruler. He remained a good king, and among a handful of people in the family with sane minds.

He believed incestuous marriages are not good. Because of this reason, most children of him are affianced to non-relatives.

Due to some unfortunate events, his Child, Jaehaerys forced to commensurate with Shaera, his sister. They had two kids together named Aerys II and Rhaella. Like parents, they also get married and that too with each other.

Aerys II

Now we know how Aerys II was born. He is a popular character of GoT, not for being the father of the Targaryens but because of his antics. His antics proved to be a reason for most bloodshed. It started with Robert’s Rebellion and spill across series.

He married sister Rhaella and emerged as a promising king who, as per his subjects, was a right doing king. Countless sorrowful events like stillborn children and miscarriages took place. It followed with political troubles forced to lose out his mind.

In later years we saw a negative transformation of Aerys. He turned a paranoid and cruel king. He killed Rickard Stark, Eddard Stark’s father, and Brandon, his son, when they demanded justice.

The justice demanded when Lyanna Stark got kidnapped by Rhaegar, son of Aerys. In reality, it was a consensual lover’s decision, and we are aware of the irony. Sir. Jaime Lannister, his member guard, killed Aerys. With this, the end of Targaryen ruling happened.

Rhaegar Targaryen

Rhaegar Targaryen was the first child of Aerys II, a handsome and bold knight with a lady killer look. He remained popular among Westeros Women. Moreover, the Game of Thrones wanted him to go in the wrong way.

He married Elia Martell, but he was madly in love with Lyanna Stark. Lyanna was the sister of Eddard Stark besides being a wife to Robert Baratheon.

The passion of love encouraged the lovebirds to flee. They got married, maintaining secrecy. People through Rhaegar kidnapped Lyanna, and war broke out based on a lie.

Robert Baratheon killed Rhaegar in the Battle of the Trident. At the same time, Lyanna died after giving birth to their son, Aegon Targaryen. Before she dies, Lyanna requests Eddard to take care of her son. He did and raised him as his illegal son, Jon Snow, in place of royal heir which he was actually.

Wife of Rhaegar, Elia Martell, got raped brutally before Sir Gregor Clegane killed her. Therefore It happened at the time of Sack of King’s Landing. Both children killed along with Rhaegar, turning Jon Snow as the solo Targaryen heir.

Viserys Targaryen

Viserys was Aerys II’s Second son. He remained ambitious yet cruel and theoretically raised his own younger sister, Daenerys. The upbringing never happened in a healthy manner.

Therefore He, along with his sister, exiled from the Seven Kingdoms when their father, Aerys, was overthrown. The brother-sister duo grew up hiding from the enemies. Viserys determined to grab the Iron Throne. Thus, Dany’s childhood was an abusing one.

Therefore In reality, he sold out his sister to Khal Drogo, the warlord, for acquiring the support of his people. Later Viserys realized that Dany is earning the royal treatment which he desired for.

He turned mad and out of anger, Therefore Khal Drogo poured on his head a crown made of melting gold. He was killed right in front of his sister Daenerys.

Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Targaryen was Aerys II’s youngest daughter.Therefore But She came to the world in exile when Robert’s Rebellion, was at its end. There was a severe storm when she was born and she got the nickname “Daenerys Stormborn”.

We already mentioned she and his elder brother Viserys grew up in exile. She was later abused and treated badly by his brother. For him, she was an opportunity to earn allies to grab the throne.

She married Khal Drogo and witness her brother’s death. Therefore Daenerys realized her hidden confidence and turned her the mistress of her fate. She got the support of actual dragons; and turned ‘Mother of Dragons’. Therefore This made her a badass. Therefore Daenerys was adamant to grab the throne. She traveled across the continent, get an army, and more support than imagined by her.

Dany reached Westeros and seduced Jon Snow. He was her nephew. Therefore the death of two dragons, best friend, Missandei, and her advisor, Jorah Mormont depressed her. She realized Jon Snow’s threat of Throne, and that made her mad, like her father.

Therefore She followed the path of devastation before finally getting ready to grab the throne. The story ended with a tragedy as Jon, killed for protecting the Seven Kingdoms.

Jon Snow, Alas Aegon Targaryen

We all know how Jon was born and his upbringing as a bastard child of Lord Eddard Stark in Winterfell. Eddard never uttered anything about his mother. Therefore This made him and others believe him as a commoner.

In Jon’s journey, we witness that he fulfills his duty with perfection as Night’s Watch guard. Therefore He gained the confidence to transform from a self-doubting bastard to a courageous and brave commander. Therefore his final lineage got confirmed in the last episode of Season 7.

With this end the family tree of Targaryen family.
