The seventh season of Game of Thrones is ready and running and creating a lot of buzz for us fans. The last episode is still to be aired and hopefully, it won’t be leaked. Even the leaked episodes of this top show got became the most viewed episode on television’s history. Now I’ve been doing an in-depth research after watching some episodes(also it seems it is a good activity to pass time as I have no social life….. ) and I have found out some interesting stuff and theories which may or may not be true, but are just too good to ignore. So let’s start!
5.Robert Baratheon is Jon Snow’s father!
Before rejecting it out-rightly, listen to what I have to say. It is a well known fact that Jon’s mother, Lyanna Stark was betrothed to Robert but was kidnapped by Rhaegar Targaryen, which started Robert’s rebellion and won Robert the Iron throne. But it is also a well known fact that Robert was not the kind who liked to wait(read the books and you’ll know). There is a good chance that Robert might have forced himself on Lyanna before she was abducted. One thing that shows that Jon might not be a Targaryen is that he got himself burnt from fire when he saved Lord Commander Jeor Mormont from a wight. it might be that L+R=J but the R might be Robert, not Rhaegar.
4. Did White Walkers built the Wall?
All this while, never have we seen any episode through the perspective of the White Walkers. Nor do we know who they really are or why are they fighting against the living. It is said that it was Brandon the Builder, the same person who built the city of Winterfell, who constructed the wall with the help of Giants and the magic of the Children of the Forest.
The wall runs 300 miles in length and is 700 feet in height, way more than the great wall of China(26 feet in height) and is made of nothing but ice, though you’ll find stones on top of it which makes it easier to walk on it. It is just too big. Now what is more believable, that a human used magic to build such a gigantic wall or the white walkers, who basically control ice, who live beyond the wall and who bring ice storms with them built it? Practically this theory does seem to be true.
3. Is Bran Stark the Night King?
Bran Stark we know is one hell of a mysterious character in Game of Thrones. The theory that he might be the night king isn’t a new one, but has been surfacing for quite a while. Proof you ask? Here’s one. In the episode Bran goes to the past and sees with his own eyes how the Children of the Forest created the night king. Just at that moment, you could see Bran Stark tightly grabbing the wooden branches as if he is the one being hurt by the Children of Forest. Just pause the video at 0:54 and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Also, I found this image online which makes me wonder more and more.
This theory just might turn out to be true!
Insane? Yes. False? Maybe not. In the show Game of Thrones, Tyrion’s hair color is different. But in the books it is described as-‘hair so blond it seems white’. In the books the color of a Targaryen’s hair color is not golden but silver-white. Just imagine a cross between a Lannister’s golden hair and a Targaryen’s silver-white hair.
This I agree is not that big a proof for this theory. Here’s the proof. In the books and even the show, you would come to know that Tywin Lannister, Tyrion’s father was the Hand of the King to Aerys Targaryen, better known as The Mad King. It was also a fact that because of his influence in the realm, Aerys Targaryen hated Tywin Lannister. Once when he visited Casterly Rock, the Lannister stronghold in the West and allegedly raped Tywin’s wife, Joanna. Just after a while, Tyrion was conceived. If you read the books,you will come to know about The Mad King’s hatred towards Tywin. This does make it sound more believable right?
1. Jaqen H’ghar’s real identity
One of the most intriguing characters in Game of Thrones is Jaqen H’ghar, or No One. As his name suggests, nobody knows if his identity is what the show tells us. One theory suggests that it is Edward Stark. What gives this theory fuel is the scene where Ned Stark is getting killed. You will see that before getting killed, Ned Stark is whispering something, which some this was actually Valar Moghulis. Others say that if Jaqen H’ghar is spelled backwards, it sounds like Rhaegar. All of this most probably will go unanswered.
