    Lol, well, it's sort of annoying to read double/triple posts when they could just fix it with the edit button. ;)

    i wanted to ask, if anyone of you knew or could have guessed, what caused valyria to be destroyed?

    could it have something to do with the Others?

    According to the Westeros site:

    From the FAQ:
    4.1. What was the Doom of Valyria?

    The Freehold of Valyria was apparently destroyed in a cataclysm. This disaster was dramatic enough that it is represented in art (I: 29). Given the "smoking ruins" (I: 374), the Smoking Sea (III: 98), and the shattered appearance of the peninsula that was Valyria, it is likely that the cataclysm was volcanic in nature. This parallels standard interpretations of the fall of Atlantis, which is the likely inspiration for the Doom.


    From the Concordance:
    Magic had died away when the Doom fell on Valyria and the Lands of the Long Summer (I: 197)
    The maesters say that Valyria was the last ember of magic, and even that is now destroyed (II: 325)


    So no, I believe it had nothing to do with the Others.
