How many Targaryens are alive in Game of thrones? [SPOILERS]

Is Khaleesi the only Targaryen in Game of thrones?

khaleesi motherfucker

Well we are going to go through some theories and try to figure out. Be prepared for major spoilers though non book readers. But be aware. It is a theory.

So what is the title for? M the red has already revealed that Aegon Targaryen is Alive. Thing is that Targaryen are always three. 

So we are minus one Targaryen. You are gonna tell me though. How about maester Aemon?

Well. He dies.

Surprised? I wouldn't.

So who is the remaining Targaryen?

Here goes the theory then. 

It's JON fucking SNOW.

I don't believe he knows though. How could he?

grumpy cat you know nothing

you know nothing jon snow

So yeah. He knows nothing.  

Facts then. Lets go.

We do not know who is the mother of Jon Snow. There are many theories around it but the one I believe it adds up is the one that says his mother is Lyanna Stark.

His thoughts in the book are:

. . .Even his own mother had not had a place for him. The thought of her made him sad. He wondered who she had been, what she had looked like, why his father had left her. Because she was a whore or an adulteress, fool. Something dark and dishonorable, or else why was Lord Eddard too ashamed to speak of her? 

Eddard Stark is a goddamn lawful good. He would never cheat on on his beloved wife. 

Theory says he is the son of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen and Eddard's sister Lyanna.

Rhaegar and Lyanna disappeared together to the Tower of Joy early in Robert's Rebellion. 

There, it's believed, Rhaegar leaves a pregnant Lyanna to defend his family's dynasty.


At the end of Robert's Rebellion, about one year later, Eddard and his companions find three of the Kingsguard at the Tower of Joy: Lord Commander Ser Gerold Hightower, Ser Oswell Whent, and Ser Arthur Dayne. 

The reasons for their presence and the ensuing fight are unknown, but defending the unborn son of the Heir Apparent would be a good reason to have been posted. 

The only known survivors of the fight were Eddard himself and Howland Reed. Eddard recalls his sister dying "in a bed of blood," where he made her an unknown promise just before she died.

Also, while Robb, Sansa, Bran and Rickon are said to have Tully features (hair color, eyes), Jon and Arya are said to be closer in appearance (which had made Sansa believe Arya was also a bastard like Jon, until her mother put Sansa's theory down). Arya is said to resemble Lyanna.

Further evidence to the truth of this theory in the eighth Eddard chapter of A Game of Thrones, in which Ned contemplates the significance of King Robert's bastards. 

As he muses, Ned's thoughts drift to Jon Snow, a logical segue, but also to his sister Lyanna, the promise he made her, and to Rhaegar Targaryen, implying some tacit link between the three individuals.

Daenerys Targaryen's visions in the House of the Undying include an image of Rhaegar with his newborn son Aegon, proclaiming that "there must be a third" because "the dragon has three heads".

Given that, according to Jon Connington, Rhaegar's wife Elia (sister of the red viper, Oberyn Martell) was believed infertile after two difficult pregnancies, and that Aegon the Conqueror himself had two wives, it is logical for Rhaegar to have attempted to fulfill the prophecy by having a third child with another woman. 

Another of the visions Daenerys sees is the image of a blue winter rose growing from a chink in a wall of ice, filling the air with sweetness. 

Lyanna was noted by Ned to be fond of winter roses, and he associates them with her death. Jon, who could be the product of Lyanna, is currently at the Wall.

If Rhaegar secretly married Lyanna, it would ironically mean that Jon is not a bastard despite his life having been defined by his believed bastard status to a great extent, and that he is the heir to the Iron Throne after Aegon VI Targaryen (although this last point is rendered moot so long as he belongs to the Night's Watch).

With Eddard beheaded by King Joffrey, Howland Reed is the only living person who knows the nature of Lyanna's death and what she made her brother promise.

That seems crazy to you? Well don't forget that Martin is a psychopath who kills for fun and creates tremendous conspiracies. Which is why I love him.

So I believe I got inside Martin's brain and figured it out. It all starts with a Stark. Eddard.

It all ends and begins with a Stark and a Targaryen. That is why Jon is the link to all the fucking books. 

Having in mind that in the end of "A dance with Dragons" Jon is multiply stabbed left for dead. I believe the comeback is going to be like this. 

They will try to burn him in order not to become a White walker and there you will fucking cry! He will not burn! 


There you have it.
