Game of Thrones season 7: Jon Snow's real name apparently confirmed

Kit Harington as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones

Over on reddit, user theshivsharma posted this photo, purportedly from an Empire magazine preview issue, in which a no longer confused Isaac Hempstead Wright aka Bran Stark, outright confirms Jon Snow's true name.

One month before the release of Season 7 of Game of Thrones, was the real name of Jon Snow disclosed by mistake? "Bran's now in this precarious situation in which it's just him and Meera (Ellie Kendrick), and he has all of this information that could change the entire story", said Hempstead Wright.

If this article is correct, it means Jon Snow's real name is Jaehaerys Targaryen. As we know, Jon is not the son of Ned Stark and of an unknown but that of his sister Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, the brother of Daenerys Targaryen. Fans assumed they would have to wait a while before learning Jon Snow's real name, but thanks to an eagle-eyed Reddit user, it looks like we have learned the truth earlier than we expected. Seven of those episodes comprise season 7 and six is confirmed to be the count for the eighth and final season next year.

The name does actually make a lot of sense: apparently Jaehaerys I was the longest reigning Targaryen king in history, and seemed to be an all-round pretty good guy.

According to some, the name Lyanna shares with Ned is Jaehaerys, which would have been chosen to honor Rhaegar's esteemed Targaryen ancestor of the same name, if true. Lyanna then made Ned promise that he will be protecting her son from any danger, After that, Lyanna whispered some indiscernible words to Ned which the fans speculate to be Jon's name, Jaehaerys Targaryen.

Well, he would actually be the third Jaehaerys in the Game Of Thrones universe, if you follow the books - and the previous two have both been kings of the Iron Throne.

It's here that the reveal comes, as it details Bran being the keeper of the secret regarding Jon Snow's parentage.

As for his last name, Jon is likely not even a "Snow". Meanwhile, Jaeherys II was the father of Aerys Targaryen, the Mad King.

If you're all caught up with HBO's Game of Thrones, you'll no doubt recall the rousing scene from "The Winds of Winter", in which the many house of northerly Westeros, spurred on by the fierce Lyanna Mormont, declared Kit Harington's bastard to be the rightful (?) King of the North.
