We love this! The ‘Game of Thrones’ season 6 finale made it pretty darn clear who Jon Snow’s father is, but HBO revealed an amazing infographic on June 29 that totally confirms his – and many other characters’ – origins. See for yourself, here!
Get ready Game of Thrones fans, because you’re going to LOVE this! HBO released a comprehensive family tree on June 29 for all of the characters – and yes, that can now include Jon Snow! We were pretty confident we knew who his dad was after the season 6 finale, but now we know for sure! Check it out, right here!
Okay, sit back and relax, because this is going to be a lot to take in! Learning that Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark were Jon’s parents (for sure) changed a lot about what we thought we knew about the handsome character. When we really started to think about it after the June 26 finale, it made our heads spin! Luckily, HBO decided to make it easy for us by releasing this amazing infographic.
The image shows not only Jon’s relationship to his parents, but basically every character’s relationship to each other! That even includes who loves who, who killed who, who is siblings with who, and a little reminder as to which families are royal. Phew, like we said, it’s a lot.
What’s most important is why Jon’s true identity was kept secret for so long. Basically, Robert Baratheon and Ned Stark were friends and allies. Robert was supposed to marry Lyanna Stark, but first she was kidnapped by Rhaegar Targaryan. Robert was so pissed that he toppled the whole Targaryan dynasty — but never knew that Rob secretly took in the product of Lyanna amd Rhaegars – um – relationship (Jon.)
While the finale pretty much revealed who Jon’s parents are, we couldn’t really be completely sure of his father, so the infographic not only makes it easier to understand, but actually confirms what we thought!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Does the infographic make it easier to understand or more confusing?
