HBO confirm who Jon Snow’s father is in Game of Thrones

L+R=J is a-OK


Just in case there was any doubt left in your mind, HBO have confirmed that Rhaegar Targaryen is the father of Jon Snow. 


The news will hardly come as a surprise to most fans, for whom this week’s finale was all-but confirmation of Snow’s true parentage. Still, the episode did only show that Lyanna Stark was his mother, while leaving the identity of his father unsaid.


Well, here it is in black and white, with also some nice colourful lines going in many different directions. Released by HBO, it’s an official infographic of who is related to who in Westeros; one that clearly shows Rhaegar and Lyanna as his parents. Still, there’s no mention of Daenerys being Jon’s aunt, which we imagine will have to come up at some point.
