To expand on 2_Learn_Spanish's answer, it's also a language created by the great David J Peterson who is famous in the Conlang (Constructed Language) world for many of his languages.

It was "created" for the show "Game of Thrones", along with Dothraki, which have both evolved from the original language of Valyrian (which is different from High Valyrian). It's a highly inflectional language, meaning that the end of a word will change depending on the tense, person, etc., similarly to Latin and other natural languages.

If you're interested in learning it, and would like to be a part of the community, we have a Discord channel for both High Valyrian and Dothraki. The communities are small, but more people are joining slowly. If you would like to know anything else don't hesitate to ask! :D
