The mystery I most want solved is Varys's motivation. During his conversation with Illyrio in A Game of Thrones, he seems 100% on Dany's side. Later on though, he seems to push Robert in to having her killed.

I know he could have just been putting on a show to remove suspicion from himself, but it's a hell of a risk.
Since Varys is behind Aegon, I think Dany and Viserys were basically a shell game to keep attention elsewhere, and, in Dany's case, her assassination would prompt Drogo to invade Westeros.
