Heir to His House Posted September 23, 2013 Share Posted September 23, 2013 We all know that GRRM loves to turn things on their heads in these stories, so it made me think: What if when Rhaegar said "The Dragon Must Have Three Heads" and saying in the same vein that he was the Prince that was Promised, he was inadvertently correct? Not that there were three actual people but that the only Dragon of his line has three metaphorical heads based upon his life experience?I'm talking of course about Jon Snow, if you believe R+L=J. Jon, who is all at once a Dragon, Wolf and Bastard. The Dragon with three heads: Targaryen, Stark & Snow.Now, there's a ton of discussion about textual evidence that Jon's the PTWP, but what if there's another prophesy gone off the rails that inadvertently is true? The Prince that was Promised is the Dragon with 3 heads, just not the way Rhaegar intended.Sort of like how Genies always twist wishes to screw the people casting them? Anyways, if in future books Jon evolves from Snow to Stark---thanks Great Northern Conspiracy!---to Targaryen at the eventual reveal of his lineage and battling against the Others, isn't that essentially the Dragon with 3 heads evolving into the Prince That Was Promised?Making Rhaegar, who was obsessed with prophecy but ultimately futile with understandig them, inadvertently a prophet of his own?
