The theory about Jon Snow’s parentage.There are also theories of John relationship with Ned Stark, a lot of fans have already finalize their verdict in Reddit and Game of Thrones forums. 

Recently after season 7, there is the huge uproar about the relationship of Ned with his nephew and there are fans discussing and arguing the possibilities all over the internet. The infamous series is only left with a single season expected to be Aired in 2019.

In the first episode of season 1, John was introduced as the bastard son of Ned Stark. But the recent turn of events has unveiled the real thing. Ned managed to hide the fact the John was originally his nephew s well that his wife Catelyn and even John never doubts his father’s story. After a hint in the last episode of season 6, the final episode of season 7 confirmed that Jon was actually Ned’s nephew, his mother is Ned’s sister who has died due to some birth complications. And the recent season proved that Lyanna is Jon’s true mother and Rhaegar Targaryen is his biological father. And since Rhaegar and Lyanna were deeply in love and were legally married, Jon is not a bastard instead his real name is Aegon Targaryen, and he is the true heir to the Iron Throne.

Recently a Reddit user duh_metrius has a soundproof theory behind why Ned choose to call his sister’s son as John instead of his real name. It is clear that Robert rebellion is purely building upon lies as Ned chooses to lie about John’s real parentage in order to protect him. 

As we all know Ned has three biological sons — Rickon, Bran, and Robb. All of them are named after someone Ned used to care about. Rickon is Ned’s father's name, Bran was named after Ned’s brother Brandon, and Robb is named after Ned’s best friend, Robert Baratheon. And finally, John is named after another person he loved the most, Jon Arryn.

Jon Arryn is not Ned’s biological father but he has raised Ned and Brandon Stark as his own children. Ned and Jon fought side by side during Robert’s Rebellion. And afterward, he became Ned’s brother-in-law. It was Arryn’s murder which started the chain of events which leads us to where the last season ends.

The long winter has finally come and Dead are coming for the living.
