Did HBO Just Confirm Both Of Jon Snow’s Parents?

In a recent infograph posted on the show’s Making Game of Thrones blog, it depicts the relationships between many GAME OF THRONES characters, including both of Jon Snow’s parents!


In the GAME OF THRONES finale, it was revealed that a major fan theory was correct in thinking that Lyanna Stark is the true mother of Jon Snow. One of the final scenes showed her giving birth to Jon in the Tower of Joy. She made Ned promise to protect her son, but we didn’t get a chance to overhear the specifics of why he’d need to be protected, nor did we find out who the father was.

Both questions seemed to be answered in the infograph below. It shows Jon’s father as Rhaegar Targaryen, all but confirming the theory R + L = J (Rhaegar Targaryen + Lyanna Stark = Jon Snow). This would explain why Ned lied about Jon being his bastard, because King Robert tried to kill every Targaryen left in the Seven Kingdoms. It also means Jon is a legitimate contender to end up on the Iron Throne. http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2016/06/got.png
