King Aegon Targaryen, also known as Young Griff, and self-proclaimed Aegon VI Targaryen, though the succession line of the Iron Throne doesn't recognize this, is the son of Elia Martell and Rhaegar Targaryen. He was supposedly killed by Ser Gregor Clegane during the Sack of King's Landing in Robert's Rebellion, but it is revealed that, supposedly, this was not the case.

Background Edit

Aegon had been under the watch of Lord Jon Connington, with his hair dyed blue to hide his telltale Targaryen hair. Tyrion Lannister later finds out about his true identity.

Currently leads the Golden Company in an invasion of the Seven Kingdoms, where he has taken several lands in the Stormlands, and plans to lay siege to the Baratheon seat of Storm's End.

Given Aegon's parentage, in actuality, he has a better claim to the Iron Throne than any other character, even Daenerys Targaryen. However, this is all assuming that Aegon is who he claims to be, and not a pretender.

Trivia Edit

Aegon has been likened to historical figure Bonnie Prince Charlie (Charles Edward Stuart), who was a pretender to the throne of England, Scotland and Ireland. Like Aegon, Charles lived much of his life overseas, taking refuge in places such as Italy and The Isle of Skye. He later rose the second Jacobite Rebellion in 1745, which was crushed at Culloden field in the Scottish Highlands.
