A Dragonrider is an indivual who is able to bond with and mount a dragon. The Targaryens are the only surviving house of the Valyrian dragonlords making them the last known dragonriders.


Due to the intelligence of dragons they can be trained to respond to vocal commands and to serve as battlemounts. Daenerys Targaryen has trained her three dragons to respond to vocal commands.
