As Game of Thrones is now on its final season, a lot of fan-made theories and assumptions are surrounding the television show’s final bow. As Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) is now serving as Daenerys Targaryen’s (Emilia Clarke) loyal hand, the speculations about his real identity once again emerge.

After Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) real personality is now confirmed, he is a real Targaryen and actually Dany’s nephew; there are swirling rumors that Tyrion is also a Targaryen. Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) might have another reason why he hated The Imp so much.

Tyrion might be another Targaryen

In a report made by IGN, Tywin believed that Tyrion killed his mother by giving birth to him.

However, there was another assumption that Tywin might know that he was not The Halfman’s real father. Could he be Aerys II Targaryen’s child and Daenerys’ half-brother?

To recall, in “Game of Thrones” Season 6 Episode 2 “Home,” Tyrion managed to come up close and personal to the Breaker of Chains’ dragons, Rheagal and Viserion. He aimed to set them free from the Dungeons, and he managed to that without enraging them. It has been said that the dragons only follow people with Targaryen blood, so this might be a strong indication that Tyrion is may be a real Targaryen.

Getting up close and personal with the dragons

In the television adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s “A Series o Ice and Fire,” there are a few hints about Tyrion being a true Targaryen.

In fact, his scene with Daenerys’ dragons was a big giveaway. There was also a moment when he was speaking to these dragons and opened up about his desire to have a dragon of his own, which was in the book’s version.

He even told Jon Snow about his dream to have a fire-breathing creature that will perfectly suit his size in the novel series.

Talking about Jon Snow, the King in the North also had a close encounter with Daenerys most savage dragon, Drogon. It was an intense moment as Drogon was drawing closer to him. However, it was also an intimate scene as he successfully touched him and looked at him straightly in the eye.

The sequence just proved he has Targaryen blood, a long-swirling theory about his real identity.

In the previous season of “Game of Thrones” final episode, it is also confirmed that he is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen (Wilf Scolding) and Lyanna Stark (Aisling Franciosi). So, will “Game of Thrones” Season 8 answer the theories about Tyrion being a real Targaryen? Find out in the television show’s return in 2019.
