why do you think tyrion could be a targaryen? would tywin lanister let him live if it meant having to kill his wife? or if she really died at childbirth then tyrion cant be a targaryen.
The Mad King Aerys was apparently really into Tywins wife and on their wedding day he apparently drunkingly joked about how it was a shame bedding rights weren't still practiced. Some people believe that he took those rights or at some point raped her. It would explain the sudden tension between him and Tywin that started with Tywin giving up position of hand of the king and ending with him taking over Kings Landing during Roberts Rebellion. Also his hatred of Tyrion could stem from more than the fact that he's a dwarf and actually be because he suspects or knows Tyrion is not actually his son. The irony would be (see below) if Tyrion actually was his blood and Jaime and Cersei weren't. They still have the blonde hair because Tywins wife was still a Lannister, his cousin. There is also the matter of Tyrion's fascination with dragons and the fact that he has different coloured eyes, the same as a previous Targaryen of note, I can't remember her name though.

I like to think that Jamie and Cerci are Targ. It was clear that there was interest between the king and their mother. If they were targ. there is a huge relation to jamie and briennie and the egg and dunk stories. Beyond that he is doing a personality 'rebirth' as well becoming a more "good" character. And the queen is a crazy b so i could see her being the mad kings daughter.
THis would also make sense because they often say that Tyrion is Tywin's true son. This is ment to be that he has the tactics to rule or what ever but it could also be shadowing.
He could stab cerci and then brienne to forge light bringer. If that happens he will def ride a dragon with dany and jon. Although i like the idea above of Jon giving us a POV on the others but i think that will be Bran. The others seem to be somewhat organized and i think that has to do with brans teacher. Bran will take over that role and hopfully control a ice dragon (other dragon?!?)
Also just because i want to say it i think Varys is a Targ. and is the son of one of Aegon's (Egg) brothers children. Could be Meaker (or how ever you spell it) had him while across the red sea "cooling off" after his trial with dunk. Just would be cool, thats why he shaves his head.
I have entertained this notion also. Cersei and Joffrey's madness really do seem like the flip of the coin stuff and I think Aerys fascination and bedding rights with Tywin's wife cannot be ignored. It would be a kind of ironic slap in the face to everyone who hates Cersei and wants her off the throne, to find out that she actually has a legitimate claim to it! Joffrey's madness really reminded me of the mad king, he's a truly sadistic evil little shit but of course that could just be a product of incest. Afterall I don't think Aerys was meant to be mad his entire reign.
If Jaime is a Targaryen though that would make him not only a kingslayer but also a kinslayer! Oh well he's already gone down that road in the TV show anyway!
