Has Jon Snow's True Name Been Revealed?

19 June 2017

But in our world, it's summer we have to watch out for, because that is when Game of Thrones returns to HBO.

Since that show-stopping reveal in Game of Thrones season 6, scores of potential names have been doing the rounds as rampant fans try to nail down the true identity of Jon Snow.

According to Isaac Hampstead-Wright, Jon Snow's real name is Jaehaerys Targaryen. The name Jaehaerys Targaryen would go in line with a log-running fan theory that Jon Snow is indeed actually a Targaryen and the legendary Prince That Was Promised.

'Cars 3' speeds to No. 1, Tupac biopic nets strong debut
That's a lower opening than " Cars " (US$60.1 million) and " Cars 2 " (US$66.1 million), but still enough to win the weekend. Universal's " The Mummy " placed fourth with an estimated 13.9 million US dollars in its second weekend.

Latest and juiciest: it looks like someone's leaked a page from an upcoming edition of Empire magazine that reveals Jon Snow's real name.

In GOT mythology, the name carries a lot of meaning as the longest-ruling Targaryen king, named Jaehaeherys I, sat on the Iron Throne for 55 years. In any case this is not the most important information since it is the origins of Jon that could change the situation and have a huge impact on the sequel of Game of Thrones. Lyanna then made Ned promise that he will be protecting her son from any danger, After that, Lyanna whispered some indiscernible words to Ned which the fans speculate to be Jon's name, Jaehaerys Targaryen.

Although the factoid is not confirmed by HBO, it makes way for several theories about Kit Harrington's brooding Lord Commander.

About 60 women have made similar allegations, although only Constand's is recent enough to sustain a criminal prosecution. Linda Kirkpatrick, another accuser, said that Cosby underestimated the dozens of women who have spoken out against him.

"As we saw in the last episode of season six, Bran's (Isaac Hempstead Wright) psychic time-traveling "greensight" revealed the true nature of Jon's birth heritage and his real name: Jaehaerys Targaryen".

Snow was delivered by his dying mother Lyanna with Ned Stark by his side.

This makes sense. The Targaryen part we already kinda knew, thanks to thousands of fan theories and deep-dives into Reddit. If you needed any further hint that Jon Snow is destined to become one of those dragonriders, this is it. Following his namesake, Jaehaerys Targaryen II also reigned over the Seven Kingdoms, and though his time on the throne was short, he brought stability to the realm and improved the relations between the houses that were damaged by his predecessor, Aegon V.
