stateofdissipation Posted July 12, 2014 Share Posted July 12, 2014 How can Jon be a Targaryen if he has a burned hand?What function idoes Jon burning his hand in combating the wights attacking mormont?A boken bone or a stab wound would have been equally heroic. The burn on Jon's hand was inserted to cast doubt on his Targaryen blood. Reading further one discovers that targs are not immune to fire but resistant. The same scene can then be seen as proof Jon is a Targ because on another the injury would have been much worse.GRRM has closed the door and then opened it up again.Since Rhaegar was already married, wouldn't Jon still be a bastard?Targaryens have a history of polygamous marriage but have not practiced it for hundreds of years.Three Kingsguards were present at the Tower of Joy when Ned arrived. Jon being born by then and legitimate would explain their presence. However they never state what they are doing there. They end up fighting Ned a Targaryen enemy but leave out which Targaryen Ned is enemy too.---Leaving "we swore a vow" as a point of speculation Again GRRM opens a door and apparently closes it only to possibly open it again.,+Weren't the Kingsguard at Tower of Joy on the basis of an order from Aerys, to guard Lyanna as a hostage?We have no evidence of why the KG were at the ToJ, There is no specific order from Aerys or Rgaegar given. They never state their purpose. GRRM left this wide open for speculation. The direction of the speculation leads to the desired conclusion. This theory is too obvious and too many people believe it to be fact. How can it be true?The theory is obvious because GRRM inserted all the questions and left them unanswered,Why doesn't Ned ever think about Lyanna being Jon's mother?Ned doesn't think about anyone as being his mother. When says the name 'Wylla' to Robert, he is either referring to Jon's mother or the name Robert was looking for. If Robert had simply stated "who was your bastard's mother" and Ned simply replied "Wylla" there would be no question. If Ned told Cersei Jon's mother was a Dayne, again the question would be closed. Again GRRM leaves a door open that he could have shut for good. Why should we care who Jon's parents are? Why would GRRM cast the issue in so much doubt if he did not intend it to matter.? Who cares if he's legitimate? People that do not understand that "legitimate" can mean what ever somebody wants it to mean. And people who want Jon to be king.
