10Can’t Happen: The Other Aegon Targaryen Claims The Throne

Kit Harington as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones season 8

There are so many Aegon Targaryens floating around Game of Thrones that it can be hard to keep track of them all. While Jon Snow’s birth name was actually Aegon Targaryen, there was another Aegon that was born before him to Rhaegar Targaryen – this time, to Rhaegar’s first

wife, Elia Martell.

While this Aegon is long-deceased in the show, he’s still alive in the books. In fact, last we heard, he’s on his way to claim the Iron Throne before his Aunt Dany can get there first. Of course, the show seems to have skipped over this plot-point entirely to better highlight Jon Snow’s storyline instead.
