Like I have said and will say again. Some people are just given to believing in mundane nonsensical clap trap. It is simply in their genes to ignore the truth and opt for the morose. One of these days a scientist will probably confirm that conspiracy theorists are addicted to some yet unknown chemical released by the brain when they conjure up unicorns, aliens and shooters on the grassy knoll. (a chemical probably unlike adrenaline).
Take this silly nonsense that Aegon is Illyrio and Serra's son. Where do I begin to discredit such nonsense. It is clearly made up in his own head. He simply writes this clap trap and feels we should just take it as it is. That Serra birthed a boy is a script only present in his head. Its like trying to convince a 5 year old that Santa doesnt exist (though in that case the five year old would have every right to believe in Santa because the people the child trusts have told it so and it has seen the gifts brought down the chimney by the fat man on a 7 reindeer sleigh)
Jon Connington did not take on fAegon before he was five years or so of age. Perhaps Lemore knows more about the very early years of fAegon's life. Varys and Illyrio are encouraging fAegon to woo Daenerys in hopes of gaining a measure of legitmacy from her. They also seized on the fortuitously acquired Tyrion Lannister to offer a measure of legitmacy.
Now remember folks this is the same guy who was prattling on about winter weather and blocked passes in hopes of making his clap trap theories seem logical. Now all of a sudden his perceptive ability seems to have failed him rather conveniently. It is left upon me to yet again point out the glaring holes in his nonsensical theory. (Its ironic how this line of reasoning parallels the "Birthers"...LEts examine his statment. the holes are obvious to those who dont indulge in this flights of fancy but let me break it down)

This is perhaps the best evidence for why Aegon is indeed a Targaryen. The best friend of the father should be at the very least able to identify his friend's son. Yes I have read stupid nonsense from people claiming they have so and so nephew of theirs who looks like Shaka Zulu while they have no Zulu blood in their family. I always want to scream out to these people "Hey bozos, Martin is not writing about your weirdo family. He is writing a book about a world he created dont go comparing his book to your current world view. It is just silly.
One can fairly argue that Martin specifically dismissed all potential ambiguity of the boys heritage by placing Jon Con on the scene, but no, apparently this wasnt good enough for the birther type crowd.
Varys and Illyrio are encouraging fAegon to woo Daenerys in hopes of gaining a measure of legitmacy from her.
Wait one second, Illyrio and Varys have been hatching this plan for the last 16? So when they sold Dany to Drogo they fully expected Drogo to kill Viserys in a fit of rage instead of giving him 50,000 dothraki screamers to re-install Viserys as the king , then Drogo dying and leaving Dany in peril that she barely survives with three dragons...
They planned all this exactly this way so that Aegon could gain a measure of legitimacy
? Seriously you have reduced Dany's role to this? I cant ask if you are serious with this crap. I know you are as serious as some one demanding for OBama's original birth certificate because it makes sense to you that there has been a multi decade long conspiracy to install a kenyan as the president of the USA. Your arguments parallel birthers arguments quite well. This is yet proof of my conclusion about those who like these silly conspiracy theories. Their lack of objective thinking when it suits them is really pathetic.
They also seized on the fortuitously acquired Tyrion Lannister to offer a measure of legitmacy.
This is piling on but trust me folks, the one thing conspiracy theorists dont ever get tired of is facts flying in the face of their arguments.
Now any one who has read all five books can see the complete absurdity in this statement. Tyrion Lannister's notoriety in the seven kingdoms even beats that of Theon Grey Joy. (I think there are more people that celebrated Theon's infamy than did Tyrion's) Who in the STranger's butt hole is gonna believe anything that comes out of that homicidal, whoring, stunted and noseless dwarf. For crying out loud the man saved King's landing and he was still the most hated man in the city.
Yet some one believes Tyrion Lannister can offer a "measure of legitimacy" to a fake Aegon? Oh yes! I can see this scenario on Dorne
Obara Sand: "Oh yes this is the nose-less midget that talked our father into fighting Clegane and lost his life. The same midget who killed his own nephew in a bid to steal the iron throne for itself and when caught, it escaped and murdered its own father.
Nymeria Sand:"Yes lets believe his claim that this "pretender" is indeed our long Lost Aegon. After all kingslayers and kinslayers are known to be such trustworthy fellows that do such acts of kindness.
Tyene Sand:" Yes the dwarf is all we need to prove that our cousin is indeed alive. He surely cant be a whoreson of one of the many whores of Lys. Not with this short little nose-less monster vouching for him!"
Honestly some things people say are so stupid it beggars belief!!!!!
Ps...At this rate, some one should start a net petition for Aegon Targaryen to release his long form birth certificate!
