While they are saying one thing may be so unhealthy it is good, is it potential for one thing to be so preposterous it is true? Of course, followers are already greater than conscious that George RR Martin delights in subverting expectations. something in any respect is feasible within the Song of Ice and Fire. But has one of the widespread and very unlikely characters actually been hiding in plain sight as the true Targaryen inheritor?
We already know that Jon Snow was all the time 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 youngster of the firstborn inheritor to Aerys II.
But there have all the time been rumours that Rhaegar’s precise inheritor, his firstborn son (additionally complicated known 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.
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 develop into a Blackfyre, the cadet department of the Targaryens.
Which means the true different ‘different Aegon’ is another person, a lot nearer to Jon.
Mind-blowing as this idea is, there is no such thing as a motive 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 attributes – though Jon’s Stark lineage has already proven that the Targayen genes do not all the time dominate after they do not marry contained in the household.
Sam is considerably extra heroic within the books, however it stays nearly not possible to think about him in any approach being the final word saviour of Westeros and unifyer of all of the warring Houses.
Then once more, that is George RR Martin we’re speaking about…
