I could not find a source for the time that the Dothraki emerged from the east. What I could find was a statement in A Dance with Dragons-Chapter 14 where it is said that the Dothraki came from the east. The paragraph describes them replacing the Volontese who were also at war with, among others, "Aegon Targaryen". As there is also talk of a Storm King it is possible that this Aegon is not Aegon I Targaryen. However there is talk about Black Dread and there is no suggestion text suggestion Aegon could just be another Targaryen scion.

All in all this seems to place the move of the Dothraki just before the conquest and not 100 years after the Doom (which was itself almost 200 years before the Conquest).Scafloc 16:13, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Three Thousand of Qohor was about 400 years ago when the Dothraki came out of east to attack Qohor.

I agree, Khal Temmo and his 50k khalasar is the first instance known to us, of the Dothraki coming out of the Dothraki sea. Probably prompted by the fall of Valyria and its Dragons, thus 400 years ago. --Mor 20:18, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Ah, I was searching the books for the combination of Doom (of Valyria) and Dothraki because I thought that it was specifically mentioned that the emergence of the Dothraki was the result of the Doom. Maybe Martin said that himself? Anyway now that we have a source I'll add it.Scafloc 21:23, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
