        God is real and all people are imperfect. Sin means imperfect, so all people sin. Only sinless perfect beings are allowed to live forever in heaven. The good news is that Jesus is the Messiah, which means God with us.. He died for the remission of sin, including yours, was buried, and rose form the dead 3 days later. If you simply believe in this to save you, then you have everlasting life. John 6: 47 "verily, verily I say unto you, he that believes in me has everlasting life."-Jesus.

          If that's how Aerys II looked when he was 32, I'd hate to think how Daenerys would look if she made it to the same age.

                Your history is wrong. Aerys II Targaryen's father was Aegon V Targaryen aka Egg.

                            Like why Aerys wanted Tywin's head and how Robert got to marry cersei

                                    So who’s Jaehaery’s II parents?

                                    In fact, who was the first ever Targaryen?

                                      We Don't know who the first Targaryens were or where they might have come from in Valyria

                                      But Jaehary's II Parents were Aegon the 5th and a woman called Betha Blackwood.

                                      Aegon the 5th is the Brother of Maester Aemom at the wall (101 Year's old by his Death)

                                      They had 5 Children first born Duncan Targaryen or little Dunk as we was known as is the man from the song Jenny of oldstones he was betrolled to someone else but married a woman from the ruined city of Old Stones and was in turn disinherited in order to Marry her he later Died the same Day at summerhall with Rhaegar's birth and his Father Aegon the 5th tried to hatch the last Dragon Egg's he had left but his son Duncan, himself, his wife, Jenny, and his other brother Daeron Died in the flames, Ser Duncan the Tall managed to save the King's Grandaughter (Rhaegar's mother) but died from his wounds seconds after it's not known what happend but it's said one of the Egg's Actully craked a Dragon sprung out from it but that Remains a Mystery.

                                      Jaeharys II other Brother Daeron who died at Summerhall was the Prince Olenna Tyrrell spoke about in the Show.

                                      He had 2 Daughter's a Girl Called Shaera (Jaeharys sister wife)

                                      and finally Rhaella Targaryen who was Married of to Roberts Bartheon's Grandfather. Giving Robert a Claim to years Later.

                                      There was Also a few other Targaryens Around: Named Vaella ''The simple'' and Maegor.

                                      Maegor should have been King but after a Great Council was convened to resolve the political chaos they picked his Uncle Aegon 5th and first to Aemon which he refused since he was a maester and had fatih in his Younger brother.
                                      since Maegor was surpassed as king (his father died months after he was born from driking wilfire...) They feared he might be as mad as his father so they after alot of debate picked his uncle and passing over his older sister from his dead older uncle than Arrion, Daeron ''the drunken''

                                      Fun Fact Steffon Bartheon (Roberts Father) and king Aerys II were Cousin's making him and Rhaegar first cousins.

                                      Aerys Targeryen is the Walter White of GOT minus the intellectual part.

                                        Aerys II: became the Mad King in the last years of his reign as paranoia, distrust and his shortcomings slowly eroded his confidence and sanity through the years.

                                                *[SPOILER ALERT]* Thank you, *whycreate!* You solved something that puzzled me greatly; when someone decided to rain down fire from a dragon, all over a walled city, I noticed small green blooms that seemed to erupt from all over different spots in the city. Yet I thought most if not all the wildfire (sp?) had been used in a certain 'battle of the bay' (where Tyrion led the charge & was injured). 14:28 explained it all to me. Bless you, thank you for this wonderful video!!! *Great work, thanks!*

                                                              Have you ever considered the possibility that there was a grand conspiracy to remove the Targaryens and Dragon Lords and Dragons from Westeros so that the Lannisters via the Barathiens would be able to rule and take over Westeros?

                                                              Because if you re=watch the television series despite how crappy it is, it is telling you the story from the Lannister perspective while we are somewhat deceived into thinking we are also watching Daenerys or even the Starks perspective... to the point that people or the audience start to sympathize with Jaimie and Cercei as well as Tyrion and his father despite all the massacres and evil acts that the Lannisters call shots on or indirectly and directly call to happen.

                                                              Plus you had Jaimie's father invading King's Landing, Jaimie "pleading" to the "Mad King" to surrender and then stabs him in the back with a sword... this alone is high treason in a coup via infiltration and betrayals

Jaeherys Targaryen father Aegon the VI marry a Blackwood. I believe that Rhaegar Targaryen is the father of Dany and that Rhaegar father was Knight Bonifer Hasty.

That's a character arc with all the motivation spread over years as he became increasingly paranoid and unstable. The same video for Daenerys would take about a minute:

                                                                          Grows up in exile. Brother is mean. Arranged marriage. Gifted dragons. Roams Essos liberating the downtrodden. Everyone loves her. Heads to Westeros. Gets destracted by Ice zombies and banging her nephew. Loses 2 dragons and some allies. Thinks 'fuck it, I'm mad queen now.' Burns the downtrodden, becomes queen of the ashes and wonders why nobody loves her anymore.

                                                                          • Jacob Johansen

                                                                            Remmenber that scene where they send Joffrey to bed? i think something else might have been going on behind closed doors between them.

I know this is fiction but how would he marry lyanna while still married to Elia? After lyanna died, then the mountain killed Elia and her children?
                                                                                Also, maybe aerys II was reincarnated into drogon. Keeping mine of what Jaime said about Aerys believing he would come back to live as a dragon and burn down the city so no one else could have it.

                                                                                  In fact in the real world polyamory was common among European kings for most of the middle ages. It wasn't until the religious consolidation in the late 14th century that strict moral codes such as monogamy become common.

It also depends on whether we're talking about the A Song of Ice and Fire novels or of the Game of Thrones TV show, because they removed an entire generation of Targaryens from the show to simplify things. Maekar was the father of Aegon V and Aemon, and Aegon V is the grandfather (ASoIaF)/father (GoT) of Aerys.

No he does not, Rhaenys Died in the sack of King's landing by the mountain. but in the Books he ''might'' still have his Half Brother Aegon Alive. but i believe Aegon is in fact one of the Last surviving Blackfyre's.
