(HERE BE SPOILS)
The show has officially omitted Griff and Young Griff from HBO. This is travesty. This is tyranny. But why?
Young Griff, so named after his protector Jon Connington of Griffin’s Roost, is the supposed son of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen and Elia Martell. Affectionately known as “fAegon” to many in the A Song of Ice Fire community, Aegon has been in hiding with Jon Connington since the end of Robert’s Rebellion. Smuggled away by Varys and switched with a baby of low birth (the “Pisswater Prince”) he was sheltered by Illyrio Mopatis and has been all but forgotten in Westeros. His adoptive father, Jon Connington has been entrusted with the care of Aegon since he was a small child. Young Griff has colored hair and claims do have done so to honor his late Tyroshi mother. Tyrion eventually discovers the truth during a game of cyvasse and Young Griff does not deny the claims.
