Smokefall replied to Iron Mother's topic in E07: The Dragon and the WolfI’d long suspected, even before this series, that something was amiss with regards to Elia, something Rhaegar discovered. I think, subsequent to the Tourney at Harrenhal, that Rhaegar possibly found out the kids weren’t his, and this led him to seek out Lyanna. Aegon is most likely Jon’s name in the books aswell (I can’t imagine D&D just making this up), which leads me to believe the purported son of Rhaegar and Elia was never a Targaryen at all (but possibly the son of Ashara Dayne). This scenario allows Varys’ baby-switch but fAegon is still fake. A switcheroo too far?
