    Which Targaryen King Was Worse

    Aegon II "The Usurper": Started the Dance of the Dragons over his sister's throne (their father had named her heir). The DOD basically was the end of the dragons and ignited a lot of crazy Targaryens attempts to bring them back.

    Aegon IV "The Unworthy": Was a worse version of Robert, died because he was literally too obese, and on his deathbed, sired all of his bastards which went on to cause five Blackfyre Rebellions.

    Aerys II "The Mad King": I don't think there is much need for an explanation since everyone should be familiar with him, but he liked to burn people, was insane, and by the end of his time, didn't listen to too many other people.

    I don't really think Aerys really fucked too much up since his line was already dying by the time it got to him.

    How was it dying, exactly? Rhaegar, Rhaegar's 3 children, Daenerys and Viserys. Sounds like a healthy house with plenty of heirs to me. If Aerys hadn't been dumb enough to kill Rickard and Brandon and then call for Ned's and Robert's heads, his family wouldn't have been destroyed.

    Aegon II was the end of the dragons and a huge amount of Targaryens.

    Maegor was a cool guy, he rode Balerion, killed the Faith and wasn't afraid of anything.

    Aegon II was technically the one who fucked their house over

    if he didnt lose all those dragons and heirs, their house would still be standing

    Aegon II was the rightful heir, a son comes before a daughter.

    Doesn't really matter since Viserys I wanted Rhaenyra on the throne.

    I personally thought that was a very bad idea by Visery. He should have just made Rhaenrya and Aegon marry each other, that would have prevented the entire conflict from taking place.

    He wanted to but Rhaenyra refused and I don't really think Viserys thought much of it because he wasn't expecting to die.
