A day after Season 6 of Game of Thrones ended, HBO released a post
indirectly confirming an old fan-theory that Jon Snow is indeed Rhaegar Targaryen’s son.
Before the release of the infographic, fans could only predict that Jon was Rhaegar’s son.
With the final episode almost confirming that Lyanna is Jon’s mother, many fans were happy that their R+L=J theory is indeed true.
Though HBO and GoT had in their episode and blog tried to keep the information about Jon’s father hidden, the infographic gave it away.
Though it’s not clear why HBO published the infographic as it appears to spoil the plot, fans are happy.
