Stitches ask away, I'll answer if I can.
The Blackfyres are the Targaeryan bastards who led a couple of rebellions trying to gain the throne.
I've definitely noticed there is a lot of variation between how closely people read. Those people on the wiki are extremely close readers, all of whom must have read the books three or four times a piece. My neighbor, on the other hand, read all of the books but can't remember the names of some pretty major characters and big events. He always brags about how fast he reads, though, so I think he was just skimming the books for some reason.
