Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion
It is actually possible that Jaime and Cersei and/or Tyrion are Targaryen bastards born of the Mad King and Joanna (their mother) through rape. Apparently Aerys had quite the fancy for her, and he was known for taking what he wanted. It helps to explain (beyond even him being a dwarf) why Tyrion gets so much bile from his father if he is either A. The bastard of the man who raped his wife, or B. His one and only trueborn child.
It is a popular theory among those who want Tyrion to be one of the heads of the dragon.
