    Who was Jon Snow’s father, Rhaegar Targaryen? What were his political plans for his father, Mad King Aerys? What were his beliefs about the prophecy of Azor Ahai and the three heads of the dragon?

            Wrong. George Martin wrote all of this, and D&D used the books as a base for their show. D&D terribly wrote the show, it’s just disappointing

            Yo no wonder Cersei hates Srarks so much. Lynna fucked her crush then posthumously cucked her from Robert.

                  Why do I get feeling that this a forbidden love story of Romeo and Juliet.
                  Because Rheager is Romeo
                  And Lyanna is Juliet.
                  But that’s just me.

                      Both of them, Rhaegar and Lyanna strike me as morons with no care to the consequences of their actions, the 7 kingdoms and their respective families burned and suffered because they liked the thrill of the forbidden love. Couple’o dumb teens tbh

                                The cool thing is that in books, it just doesn't matter. You get to his chapters and they are discussing different things from that to the point it's still speculated but GRRM has done such a good job with the books that everything is going to come full circle and make sense

                              If Jon was a Targaryen, he is supposed to have sliver hair like Other Targaryens, let's look at the theory, lord Eddard stark figured joffrey was not a baratheon because of the hair color which was supposed to be black of hair but king joffrey has golden blonde which is clear that he is a lanister.. They missed this point... Did anyone out there noticed that!? 😕

                                  The game of thrones no excisting books rip-off will probably be about this bullshit love interest... sadly it probably get's worse than the s8 D&D fiasco. ;)

                                          This is brilliant. Really hoping the books explain all this and make it true. This proves that the tv series final is trash

                                                  You could say he was because his abduction of Lyanna led to Brandon Stark attempting to confront him, which led to Brandon's death, which led to Ned marrying Catelyn in Brandon's place, which led to the birth of Arya, the true saviour 🙄

                                                                                    • Bobby Choi

                                                                                      • Jorge Molina

                                                                                        • David Eagin

                                                                                          He’s a huge douche and caused everything that happened because he couldn’t keep his dick in his pants and he wasn’t as good of a fighter as Robert.

                                                                                          Rhaegar is the cause of everything, because he was a terrible man when it really mattered.
