I would say that Quentyn wins my personal award for most pointless POV.
And Quentyn was still
more important to the plot of A Dance With Dragons
than Tyrion. How do you write a fantasy novel that's over a thousand pages? Observe: Where do whores go? Where do whores go? Where do whores go? Where do whores go? Where do whores go? Where do...
At first, I thought Aegon was a pretender, but now I am not so sure. Why would Varys want to put a fabulous fake on the throne?
When Varys discusses Aegon with the dying Kevan he doesn't defend Aegon in the sense that Aegon is the rightful
heir to the throne (which he may well be, of course) but that he's the best educated
claimant to the throne - one who actually understands the burdens and not just the trappings of kingship, and thus having the potential to be a truly great King.
I woldn't put it past Varys to support a fake claimant he thinks will make a better King than any of the 'real' contenders, to be honest.
