Bran Stark, a new vision for the Game of Thrones Season 6 finale “The Winds of Winter” episode 10 finally reveals the mother of Jon Snow what has long been suspected, the Song of Ice and Fire superfans – Jon Snow is not the illegitimate son of Ned Stark at all. This is his nephew. The son of his late sister, Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, the older brother of Daenarys.
The key for this purpose, sprinkled here and there throughout the vast backstory is revealed in the novels of George R.R. Martin and theory – known as the R+L=J – quite accepted in the community of fans that revelations show difficult to count as spoilers. Nevertheless, there is a difference between widely believed theory and confirmed, and one that we seem to have.
In most literature, meanwhile, this discovery considerably change our understanding of some aspects of the story. On the one hand, it creates a potentially legitimate contender Jon on the Iron Throne. It also establishes Targaryen legacy for Jon, which could allow him to carry out a fire dragon or immunity in any action to come in future episodes. But it also undermines the Jon claims to leadership in the North, and basically it undermines our Stark-centric view of the background of a series.
Who are the Jon Snow’s Real Parents?
So now we finally confirming that the Jon Snow’s real mother is Lyanna Stark. But who is his father?
In Lyanna’s dying breath, she whispered in Ned Stark ear,. “His name is …” she said, with the next part too quiet to hear. It is safe to assume that the named the boy Jon, but we do not know the next moment she said to Ned. rom the reaction on Bran’s face, who witnessed the events as a vision-ghost, he heard what she said, so you probably heard, as he explains it in the next season.
And so we come to the conclusion that Rhaegar Targaryen is the real father of Jon Snow.
What does it mean? Almost every character in the story, said Jon Snow to be the illegitimate son of Ned Stark, but now it seems that it is a semi-Stark and half Targaryen. He just came out of the sullen child who can not get a seat at the table for a family celebration the person with a valid claim to the Iron Throne. Rhaegar Daenerys is the older brother, so that makes Jon the nephew of Dany, which can complicate things for her, when the ships reach Westeros, as her claim claim to the throne as a male heir would be contrary to it.
