True parentage of Jon Snow revealed

We may not be sure about his death but we do know that he will learn a major truth about his parents in GoT season 8. Season 7 saw the truth revealed to Samwell Tarly and Brandon Stark. Jon is actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, who married off in secret after Rhaegar annulled his marriage with Elia Martell.

Jon is, therefore, the true heir to the Iron Throne, a fact he is still unaware of.

Rumours also suggest that John may actually be the long-awaited Azor Ahai – the prince who was promised.
