- Jon Snow Series Fulfills Viserys Prophecy A new fan theory suggests that King Viserys’ prophecy in House of the Dragon sets up the Jon Snow trilogy.
- House of the Dragon’s first season is ending, and one thing is clear: this is not Game of Thrones’ latter seasons.
- Aegon Targaryen is actually Jon Snow, the rightful successor to the Iron Throne.
- Since his family had hidden his lineage, Jon could not inherit the throne. A Jon Snow spinoff makes will set things straight.
There’s a new fan theory floating around that King Viserys’ prophecy in House of the Dragon is actually setting up the plot for the upcoming Jon Snow series. Also, it makes a great deal of intuitive sense.
This is one possible solution for how George R.R. Martin will improve the ending of Game of Thrones. The first season of House of the Dragon is coming to a close, and one thing has become crystal clear: this is not the same show as Game of Thrones became in its later seasons.
However, it’s not just a matter of how each show dealt with the source material and the weighty importance of prophecy in George R.R. Martin’s stories; the differences go deeper than that. Apocalyptic foreshadowing and constant doomsday talk were staples of Game of Thrones. The House of the Dragon has never even had its main villain revealed, let alone found and confronted.
A Prince Dispossessed of His Kingdom
Remember when Jon Snow died and R’hllor brought him back to life to fulfil an ancient prophecy that may very well be humanity’s final hope? And to think it was all for nothing since Arya was the one who finally killed the Night King?
Therefore, the prophecy of the Prince that was promised in the A Song of Ice and Fire trilogy is very tenuous. The Army of the Dead seemed to be an existential danger. After they broke through, just a few people were predicted to be able to prevent the end of mankind.
This is not simply a prophecy from “Game of Thrones“: Over the course of the first act of House of the Dragon, this identical portent is established many times. Given that the number of Blackfyres and people claiming to be descendants is extremely high, the probability of a real prince being among them is extremely low.
The True King of The Seven Kingdoms
Unknown to him, Jon Snow is really Aegon Targaryen, the legitimate heir to the Iron Throne and descendant of King Viserys Targaryen. Not only does Jon’s ancestry make him a prime target for assassination, but it also means that he, and not Robert Baratheon (and hence Cersei), should have ruled Westeros since the Mad King’s death.
If you look at it this way, King Viserys’s prophecy nearly makes sense. When the Night King burst through the Wall, some could claim that a Targaryen should have been sitting on the Iron Throne. However, there was no way for Jon to win his inheritance since his family had kept his ancestry a secret. Before the series began, Rhaegar had been annulled from his marriage to Elia Martell, with whom he had two children, and married Lyanna Stark.
What’s In Store Ahead for the GOT Trilogy?
The notion of a Jon Snow spinoff series, coming on the heels of House of the Dragon and Game of Thrones, makes perfect sense in terms of story advancement. The story potential in the Game of Thrones season finale is substantial, and it would be a tragedy to have the TV adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire wasted in this way.
It appears plausible that Jon Snow is the Prince that was promised, a central figure in many Westerosi myths and legends, particularly in light of King Viserys’s dying words. If that’s the case, the programme based on Jon might have more mystery in store for us following the events of the finale.
