  1. The best part of Tyrion being a Targaryen bastard is it explains the brutal sack of KL. Tywin Lannister lay in wait for years to pay back his wife's rape and the implicit threat to his existing children. Ordering the Mountain to rape Elia and kill her children was his revenge on King Aerys of House Targaryen.
  2. As Jorah once told Dany right after Drogo died, that competing khals would kill her baby by Drogo and start raping her and impregnating her with THEIR heirs. The animal kingdom is littered with examples of infanticide. A new alpha male often starts off his "reign" by killing the offspring of the defeated alpha. Those children are a waste of his resources and efforts and if the mother is nursing them, she's not bearing and nursing his children. Similarly, the entire first book addresses how much Cat loathes bastard Jon as a potential threat to Robb, Bran and Rickon. If Rhaegar had won at the Trident and brought Lyanna to court as queen, there is immediately massive tension between the northernmost kingdom and Dorne. Could he control them or would it devolve into civil war, with each side fighting for their Aegon to have an advantage for the throne.
