Uusally, Targaryens are straightforward to identify. If it isn’t the large fire-breathing dragons, then the violet eyes and platinum hair ought to do the trick. Then once more, Stark genes additionally run true and the wolf overpowers the dragon within the case of dark-haired Jon Snow (additionally assumed to be Aegon Targaryen). Targaryen heirs are popping up all over the place as Winds of Winter approaches, however is there really yet another on prime of the official Daenerys, rumoured Jon Snow (Aegon the youthful) and not too long ago declared Young Griff (Aegon the older)?
We already know that Jon Snow was at all times really Aegon Targaryen, son of Rhaegar and Lyanna Stark.
This instantly means he supplants his aunt Daenerys’ declare to the Iron Throne by advantage of being the final remaining little one of the firstborn inheritor to Aerys II.
But there have at all times been rumours that Rhaegar’s precise inheritor, his firstborn son (additionally complicated referred to as Aegon) by first spouse Elia Martell was not splattered on a wall at King’s Landing however secretly smuggled out like Daenerys and her unlucky brother Viserys.
The books have been closely hinting that is the person met by Tyrion on his travels, however doubts are mounting.
Tyrion’s encounter with the mysterious Young Griff on a river boat in Essos is nudging readers to assume that is really the primary Aegon, a puppet of Varys.
After all, the lad has the Targaryen look of silver hair and purple-blue eyes and has employed the Golden Company to pursue his declare to Westeros.
But many assume he’ll change into a Blackfyre, the cadet department of the Targaryens.
Which means the actual different ‘different Aegon’ is another person. Could it’s somebody a lot nearer to Jon, who additionally shares a strong ‘brotherly’ bond?
Mind-blowing as this idea is, there isn’t any purpose why Randyll would banish the Targaryen inheritor to the Night’s Watch Wall, except it was to cover him.
Nor does Sam show any of the everyday Targaryen bodily or emotional attributes – though Jon’s Stark lineage has already proven that the Targayen genes do not at all times dominate once they do not marry contained in the household.
Sam is considerably extra heroic within the books, but it surely stays virtually not possible to think about him in any means being the last word saviour of Westeros and unifyer of all of the warring Houses.
Then once more, that is George RR Martin we’re speaking about…
