The end of ‘Game of Thrones’ approaches and here we give you the key to understand it from the roles of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.
It’s almost exactly a year ago that fans were shocked by the revelations that the episode “The Dragon and the Wolf,” the last of the seventh season of “Game of Thrones,” led to the small screen on HBO. Littlefinger died after a cunning movement by the Stark sisters, while the Night King and his army of Walkers, which now includes an icy dragon, tore down the Wall. Not to mention, of course, the loving moment of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. Precisely, that is the starting point of the Fandom Wikia article that we are now going to share here and that places Daenerys Targaryen as the number one candidate to finish on the Iron Throne of ‘Game of Thrones’.
The theory of the “Prince who was promised” and the son of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen

Although there is still no baby or confirmation that Daenerys Targaryen is pregnant, there is a good chance that it may end up happening. Do not forget that there has also been much speculation about the identity of the “Prince who was promised” in “Game of Thrones” and no one has yet emerged to claim that role in the series. The prophesied savior, who presumably is the key to defeating the King of the Night and saving the world from darkness, “will be born again in the midst of humor and salt to create dragons on the stone,” according to Melisandre. In the novels, the Red Priestess refers to a “bleeding star” as a prophecy. Also known as Azor Ahai, this legendary figure is the original incarnation who defeated the Great Other or the God of Darkness to save the world in the past. The companion of Melisandre and worshiper of the Lord of Light, Thoros de Myr, also defends the prophecy. He assures that “the chosen one will once again forge the great Lightbringer sword that defeated the darkness thousands of years ago”.
Who could be Azor Ahai?
Following the thread, many viewers have both Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen as the candidates to be the “Prince who was promised” in ‘Game of Thrones’ and it is no exaggeration to see why. Jon Snow has already “been reborn” (resurrected by Melisandre) and, originally, was born under a “bleeding star”. Remember the flashback of Jon’s mother, Lyanna Stark, during the birth? Ned Stark placed the ancient sword of House Dayne, whose carrier he had just killed and which was forged by the metal of a fallen star, next to the bloodstained bed in which Jon was born. Daenerys Targaryen, meanwhile, has already demonstrated that she is able to incubate stone dragons and then there is the fact that she was born in Dragonstone, which makes her a candidate for the part of the prophecy that talks about salt and humor, since that the island is volcanic (smoke) and is also surrounded by love (salt). Of course, she also “was reborn” on the funeral pyre of Khal Drogo. So, both he and she have credentials to fulfill the role of messiah. However, it is his offspring that would have the most credits.
