I understand they'll need dragons, and will obviously start off with 3 of them, but just because one dies in battle doesn't mean there weren't three to begin with.... Confused

Lots of options - google it. For history read The World of Ice and Fire.

Historically - Aegon the Conqueror and his 2 sisters had 3 dragons with which they conquered Westeros. When Dany is in the House of the Undying - there are multiple references to the dragon having 3 heads.

Combining these and there are many other hints - came the widely held theory that the 3 dragons will have 3 riders . . .

Whether it will happen or not remains to be seen.
