Two Major Hints Dropped About Jon Snow's Birth With Huge Implications On 'Game Of Thrones'

Two Major Hints Dropped About Jon Snow's Birth With Huge Implications On 'Game Of Thrones'

First things first, if you haven't seen last night's episode then this post has mild spoilers. It's not going to ruin the show for you, but maybe watch it first and then come back, OK?

So, we're all up to speed, yeah? Good.

You know the deal with fan theories - enjoy them for what they are but take them all with a massive pinch of salt.

However, the theory that Game of Thrones' Jon Snow is a Targaryen looks to be picking up some pretty solid evidence. Last night's episode seemed to take another step towards revealing that Jon is related to Daenery and he might even have a stronger claim to the Iron Throne than her.

When she returned to Dragonstone atop Drogon, the pair found Jon and for a couple of nervy seconds it looked as though Drogon was weighing up the possibility of finishing him. But instead, the dragon lets Jon pat him, like he's a good dog.

Now, we know that Drogon isn't too happy about anyone but Daenery touching him and we've previously been told by dragon canon in A Song of Ice And Fire that dragons only allow one person to mount them and then they are bonded to the rider and that they have deep and long-standing connections with the Targaryen folk. So, does Drogon know something we don't?

People on Twitter are quickly making the connection:

And Gilly also dropped a hint about Jon's birth as she reeled off facts from an old scroll.

She asked Sam what an 'annulment' means, which Sam (John Bradley-West) explained is 'when a man sets aside his lawful wife.'

Gilly (Hannah Murray) continued: "Maynard says here that he issued an annulment for a Prince 'Raggar' and remarried him to someone else at the same time in a secret ceremony in Dorne."

The Prince she's referring to seems to be Rhaegar Targaryen, whom we found out last season had a baby with Ned Stark's sister Lyanna. This could mean that Rhaegar and Lyanna were actually married in secret, and therefore Jon Snow wouldn't be a bastard.

It would also mean that, as Rhaegar's legitimate son, Jon would have a stronger claim to the Iron Throne than Daenerys Targaryen.

The lineage would pass down to the first male heir of the Mad King, then following Rhaegar's death it would pass to Jon. Daenerys, who weirdly could turn out to be Jon's aunt, would be second in line.
