‘Game of Thrones’ Know More About Jon Snow

- Advertisement -

One thing is sure! The biggest theory in Game of Thrones just got bigger.

Ever since Game of Thrones started, there have been questions about Jon Snow’s parentage as we never knew who his mother was. And as we got further into season 7, some explosive truths about his origins have started to show up. If you haven’t paid enough attention to episode 5, ‘Eastwatch,’ you might have missed the bombshell answer we all have been waiting for.

Do you remember what Gilly said?

When Sam Tarly was complaining about his life at the Citadel, his partner stumbled on the answer to one of the biggest questions in Westeros. Reading from a book written by a maester in the time of King Aerys II, she states:

“Says here the High Septon annulled a marriage from ‘Prince Ragger,’ and married him in secret, to another woman in Dorne.” Then she is interrupted. 

Until that statement, it was believed that Rhaegar was still married to Elia Martell when he died. But now it all seems wrong. Truth is he divorced Elia Martell (Oberyn’s sister) and married Lyanna Stark (Jon’s mother) before she died.

What does that mean?

Well, it’s pretty simple. Jon is the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, so he is a Targaryen. What we still don’t know is his real first name, the one given to him by his parents.

If you are confused, I have the quick explanation for you: in season 6 flashbacks we found out that Jon is the son of  Lyanna Stark, Ned’s sister. As a fact, HBO confirmed that Jon’s dad was Rhaegar, Daenerys brother. Until Gilly read the above statement, it was believed that Lyanna was kidnapped by the Targaryen ruler and held a hostage in the Tower of Joy where she gave birth to Jon and died. In order to prevent Robert Baratheon from killing Jon, Ned Stark took his custody, telling the boy was his bastard son.

Just a second. It means…

Jon is the official heir to the Iron Throne. At the time he was born, the Targaryens were the ruling family in Westeros. Aerys, the father of Rhaegar, Viserys, and Daenerys, was king when his eldest son, Rhaegar, died. Still, Jon remains, and because of the fact that the monarchy works in a patriarchal way, it means that Jon is next in line to the Iron Throne, above Daenerys.

Are you ready to make your bets?

Now that you know all this will you place a bet on who will win the Iron Throne? You can do that pretty easily with no deposit bonus codes that you can use to play Game of Thrones Slot Game, a game where the 4 Houses (Baratheon, Lannister, Stark, Targaryen) are all in the battle for the Iron Throne.

Daenerys is in the game

The Khaleesi is also in the battle for the rule of Westeros. One thing is sure we still have a few episodes and a whole season before we find out who will lead. Another thing has also been announced – Emilia Clarke says she is ready to let go of her role as Khaleesi.

“I mean, I have no doubt there’ll be prequels and sequels and who knows what else. But I am doing one more season. And then that’ll be it”, she said in a Rolling Stone interview.

Until that happens, let’s keep an eye on Jon, Daenerys, and the rest.
