House Velaryon of Driftmark rules the island of Driftmark, the largest island of Blackwater Bay in the Crownlands. High Tide may be their castle. The head of House Velaryon uses the titles Lord of the Tides and Master of Driftmark.
House Velaryon is an ancient and proud house, with the blood of old Valyria in its veins. Velaryons, like the Targaryens, often have the Valyrian features of silver hair and purple eyes

House Velaryon was a closely allied family to House Targaryen in Valyria. Twelve years before the Doom, Lord Aenar Targaryen moved his entire family and their dragons from Valyria to the island Dragonstone. The Velaryons went with them, settling on Driftmark. The House continued to maintain close ties with the Targaryens, and Aegon the Conqueror's mother was Velena Velaryon. When Aegon and his sisters began their Wars of Conquest, Driftmark men followed, and Daemon Velaryon was his Master of Ships. Since then, Targaryen kings have chosen Velaryon wives for three of their princes. Of these princes, two are currently known: Prince Daemon Targaryen, who married Laena Velaryon, and Prince Aenys Targaryen, who most likely married Alyssa Velaryon before his coronation.
