I get the impression that the Targaryens were always supposed to be the rightful rulers of Westeros, their pedigree supposedly deriving from the noblest of Valyrian blood. . .
As far as I recall, the Targaryens were simply one of many highborn Valyrian families but lucked out in being the only one (the only one with Dragons at least) to survive The Doom.
