    Aegon VI

    I always found it odd how in Agot, when Ned is in the cell and his daughters come up. Varys brings up the innocent who suffer, and tells of the sack of K.L. yet, he fails to mention Aegon being murdered. He stops after Rhaeny's. To a dying man. Then come book 5, Aegon tells the story of how Varys saved him. Then, Book 5 ends with Vary's telling the Truth to a dying Lannister. Who isn't going to tell anybody since he's dead. I think it's quiet likely Varys is telling the truth. The bigger question to me, is who is Varys.

    Aegon VI

    Im still going with Aegon VI real or not, fills the role from the adaptation. Jon is not Aegon or a Targ. He is the son of Mance, and will become King Beyond the Wall. I just cannot see any logic behind redundantly giving Dany two possible Targs to go through the same question of identity with both. Say Jon is a Targ, after dealing with Aegon, Dany will never trust Jon. As i stated long ago though, Jon is of the North, and will not care for the throne of Westeros.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Jaehaerys and his mother Alyssa remind me of Edward the 3rd of House Plantagenet and his mother Isabella who married a marcher lord and had her husband murdered. She was the She Wolf of France

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Yea there are a lot of pieces GRRM laid out prior to F&B that i had based theories on just to have them smashed and changed hahaha According to @Ran, who asked George about this. Its just a "fanciful tale".

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Yep. That's why i listed the other ones. On the chance that there is no king in her time. Raising the point of how she knows of them and which ones would she know about. Assuming Alysanne or Jaehaerys learned of them when the wilding camp was caught and noses taken. (Still interesting they never heard legend of the Others considering this giant ice wall and the reason for its very creation being tied to this legend but meh.). It's still interesting to me.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Im still tripping on one of the daughters wanting to marry the King beyond the Wall or the Prince of Dorne to become Queen. (Even though in Dorne shed just be a princess still but watever). But what of this King Beyond the Wall? Who is he? How would she know of Kings beyond the Wall? What King beyond the Wall was there even close to this time? Bael is the closet at maybe 3-400BC. Did Alysanne and Jaehaerys tell there kids Bael's story? That would be odd. Maybe just Gendel and Gorne, Horned Lord and Joramun? Unless there actually was a king in there time? (Couldn't find mention yet). Do the wildlings always have kings? Why didn't he try to go south? Maybe i just need to read more?
  8. Id be interested to see an egg count or list if you have one. Im still reading the book so it'll be a min before i get to any notes
  9. We should have a thread on the dying of the Dragons, thought about starting one but wasn't sure if you guys just wanted that under dragon lore.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Was the Daenerys section a good addition and change from the Og first Daenerys married to Maron?

    FIRE AND BLOOD EXCERPT

    So far i've found that Alyssa (5th born) was born in 60 Ac. So Aegon, Daenerys, Aemon and possibly Baelon was born by 58 Ac. Alysanne would have been 16 by 52AC allowing 6 years for those 4 children to be born. Edit- Still unsure if this is when Jaehaerys actually brought half his court and 6 dragons though. Unless Aegon and Daenerys were riding that young Assuming Jon is right about any of this and it doesn't all get changed. A harsh winter is mentioned between 59-60ac with mention of Alleric dealing with rations and people leaving home. Not sure if and when Jaehaerys actually shows up with those 6 dragons assuming they are all actually being ridden. Aegon would have been 6 roughly at the oldest, and im not sure thats a ride-able age for Targs and their dragons or not. Id imagine the dragon would grow much faster than the child would. Dragons of Jaehaerys's children: Caraxes, Vhagar (to Aemon & Baelon), Meleys (Alyssa, who refused Balerion because she wanted a swifter dragon)

    FIRE AND BLOOD EXCERPT

    See i love the world building but i equally love the myth and it's possible bearing on the actual story. I love learning more about his religions and such and wonder greatly about the Valyrians. Being dragon riders and seeming like opposites to the Others and greatly tied to the myths. I very much wish to know more about them. Though i do admit it keeps much intrigue and mystery alive by not giving it and instead giving us the grounded perception and lives of the normal people in his world, and how magic occasionally affects there lives. Its his story so i enjoy it for what he ultimately wants to share, but yes, great curiosity in many things
