Hmph. Upon further investigation, I guess there is no explicit Textev that says Kieron the Younger was Kieron's son. This would be a good question for Steve, methinks. (Not that I really expect a clear answer, of course...)

After thinking about it a bit, I think it's very likely that Kieron the Younger was very closely related to Kieron. Dragons are pretty touchy about honor and naming, so it seems reasonable and consistent that only a Kieron descendant would be allowed to be named Kieron.
However, it's also necessary to take lifespans into account. Even assuming absolutely minimal-length reigns during the entire First Cycle, Kieron's son would almost certainly be in greatly advanced old age by the time the Second Cycle rolled around for him to reign. I could be wrong, but I think Dragons would prefer someone in the prime of gya's life to rule.
So it seems likely to me that Kieron the Younger is a grandson or great-grandson of the original Kieron.

True. There is also the case of Lord Drien, however. Paarfi mentions him being around in the 3rd cycle--without specifying that this is a different Drien than was a Kieron contemporary. I wonder if early Dragaerans had much longer lifespans than current ones? Regardless, I think the phrasing in the article at this point is the right way to approach it.
