Here's Why Jon Snow Is the Heir to the Iron Throne, Not Daenerys

By

There were plenty of hold-your-breath moments during the Season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones. From Jaime Lannister and Bran Stark's long-awaited reunion to the Sansa Stark and Daenerys Targaryen stare down, the final season of the HBO series is already gearing up to be the best ever.  

However, nothing compares to Samwell Tarly telling his BFF Jon Snow what everyone knows — he is not the bastard son of Ned Stark, but rather Aegon Targaryen, the Sixth of his Name. You see, his real father is actually Rhaegar Targaryen, who married his mom, Lyanna Stark, before their deaths, making Jon (Aegon) the legitimate heir to the throne.
