Crazy Fan Theories So Logical We Bought It
8. Jon Snow is not just some bastard of the North, according to wallaceeffect.
SPOILER WARNING: The following paragraphs contain clues regarding the true identity of Jon Snow, so I advice you to skip this number altogether if you don’t want to get spoiled. Proceed with caution.
My absolute favorite one is the Game of Thrones fan theories about Jon Snow. While in the books, it’s believed by everyone that he’s Eddard Stark’s son by some unknown woman, the fan theory states that he’s actually the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen (Rhaegar’s abduction of Lyanna sparked the overthrow of the Targaryens). That means that he’s Daenerys’s nephew, an acceptable spouse for her in Targaryen terms, and possibly the legitimate heir to the Iron Throne.
People are correctly pointing out that this would make Daenerys Jon’s aunt, not his cousin as I had originally typed. D’oh. As for questions of legitimacy, Dany can’t inherit by primogeniture—she’s a woman. It could be argued that Aegon Targaryen would be the legitimate heir, as he is the oldest legitimate male descendant of Mad Aerys, however Jon could have a reasonable claim if he’s older than Aegon, though it would be imperfect because he was born out of wedlock. But of course, in the GoT universe, legitimacy is only half your battle, and the other half is being awesome.
SuddenlySpaniards agrees with the earlier post, saying that “The whole first book, with the repeated flashback of Ned promising something to Lyanna on a “bed of blood,” and the blue roses at the tourney where she’s crowned queen of love and beauty along with blue roses being in her dying room… the “bed of blood” takes it too far, really. It’s clear. Rhaegar doesn’t seem the type to keep screwing someone for months on a literally bloody bed, even if it is rape. Servants change those dang sheets, and Rhaegar had been away marching to the Trident for weeks by the time Lyanna died in the south. The only way Lyanna could be lying in a “bed of blood” as she dies safe in a tower is a birth, and the only promise Ned would be likely to make in that context is something related to the care of her offspring. He might as well have given Jon violet eyes, for pete’s sake.”
