Who Is the Night King? Every Theory So Far About the 'Game of Thrones' Villain

By

It should surprise no Game of Thrones viewer that the ultimate antagonist of the series would come from North of the Wall. Ever since the first scenes of the show, the White Walkers have been making blood run cold (quite literally). Ultimately, it doesn't seem to matter much who "wins" the game now that winter is here and an army of icy zombies is heading south/

Leading the charge is the Night King, the head White Walker leading an army of glowing blue eyes and flanked by countless undead wights. And now he has a dragon, since he managed to kill and resurrect Viserion. Other than that, we know very little about the Night King. Where did he come from and was he once human? And could he be... Bran Stark? Fans have several theories about the Night King's identity. Let's explore them in greater depth.
