People who know about Jon's real parents
-Eddard Stark (dead)
-Wylla, the wetnurse, she was most likely at the TOJ and if not she was at least with Eddard and Jon all the way from Starfall to Winterfell. She definitely knows important things.
Possible people who may know about Jon's real parents
-Jojen and Meera Reed. Howland may have told them, but since they havn't mentioned it yet I bet they don't know.
-Benjen Stark. Eddard may have confided in Benjen since Benjen would want to protect Lyanna's son too. Or Benjen could have seen through Eddard lying about the cause of Lyanna's death and that the baby was his bastard. Benjen knew Eddard well and could see that it was out of character for Eddard to have a bastard.
-Bloodraven. Saw it in some cool vision, or through a raven, through a weirwood or warg thing a long time ago.
-Maybe Bran in the next books. If Eddard had a discussion with Benjen, it very well may have been in the Godswood of Winterfell in front of the Weirwood tree and Bran can now see everything that has happened through the Winterfell Weirwood tree.
Did I leave anything out?
Questions (Trying to keep the questions to stuff before the beginning of the books)
1. Where was Lyanna when she was abducted/ran away with Rhaegar?
2. How did Eddard find out to go to the TOJ? Who told him Lyanna's location?
3. Were there more people at the TOJ other than Lyanna and the 3 KG? Wylla?
4. What was the battle with the KG like? How did Howland Reed save Eddard's life?
5. How did Jon get to Winterfell? Did Eddard carry him all the way or was he sent on a ship? Did Eddard leave Starfall on a ship to KL or did he march to KL?
6. Did Eddard bring back anything of significance to put in Lyanna's grave/tomb? Torheen's Crown? Dragon Egg? Targaryen wedding ring?
7. Why did Ashara Dayne apparently commit suicide?
8. Is Robert Arryn the son of Littlefinger? Does it matter?
9. What happened to Gerion Lannister? Is he alive? Did he find anything? Does it matter?
10. What exactly happened at the Tragedy of Summerhall?
11. Are the dragon eggs that were in the fire at the Tragedy of Summerhall the same dragon eggs Dany received from Illyrio? Are there more dragon Eggs?
12. Did baby Aegon really die? Did Varys actually think to switch the babies out? Does Varys have a hidden backstory? Blackfyre?
13. Was Rhaegar going to take the throne from Aerys if he returned successful from the Battle of the Trident?
14. Who is the Valanqar that will kill Cersei? Means "Little Brother," Could it be Jaime or Tyrion? Or some less literal meaning?
15. Are Tyrion, Jaime and Cersei definitely Tywin's offspring? Did Aerys fulfill his desires and impregnate Joanna at some point?
16. Is Euron Greyjoy a threat? What's with his eye? Did he really throw away a dragon egg? Is that dragon horn for real? Does he know things about Valyria?
17. Is there a connection between the "Red Comet" Rhaegar sees on the night of Aegon's conception and the "Red Comet" that happens during the books?
18. A "Bleeding Star" heralds the coming of the Prince that was Promised. Is the "Red Comet" a "Bleeding Star"?
19. Is the Prince that was Promised the same as Azor Ahai? If so who? Dany or Jon or someone else?
20. If "The Dragon must have three heads," and that means three people, who are the three heads? Dany, Jon, Tyrion or someone else?
