Jon Snow’s real name might have been revealed in a reddit post which claims to have images from next month’s Empire magazine which also features an interview with Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark).
The article reveals that Jon’s real name is Jaehaerys Targaryen. The image text reads “As we saw in the last episode of season 6, Bran’s psychic time-traveling ‘green sight’ revealed the true nature of Jon’s birth heritage and his real name: Jaehaerys Targaryen.”
In the interview, Wright discusses how Bran, who witnessed Ned’s sister Lyanna Stark giving birth to Jon Snow through his powers, “could change the entire story” in a major way with this newfound information. 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.
So this mean that Jon Snow’s real parents are Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark.Although George R.R Martin haven’t said anything yet about this, an HBO family tree revealed the lineage. Fans will just have to wait for Season 7 to come out to see if this is really true.
Game Of Thrones Season 7 premiers Sunday, July 16th.
