Rhaegar Targaryen is one of the most important characters in Game of Thrones history. I’m pretty sure you all have heard about him, and probably even seen him in Season 7 of Thrones, thanks to Bran Stark’s flashback. Rhaegar was revealed to be the father of Jon Snow, or Aegon Targaryen, what ever you want to call him, back in Season 6.
We also found out that Rhaegar was actually married to Lyanna Stark, and that Jon isn’t really a bastard, which will probably be touched upon again in the final season of Game of Thrones, without a doubt. Now, Game of Thrones Season 8 theories are already kicking around the Social Media, and forums, and one such suggests that Rhaegar Targaryen might return in Game of Thrones.
You heard me right, there’s one theory that does indeed suggest that. The actor who plays Jaqen H’ghar, Tom Wlaschiha, recently sat down in an interview with Los Siete Reinos, and he had a couple of interesting things to say. He only added fuel to fire when he said, “If you change the order of the letters of Jaquen H’Gar leaves Rhaegar.
“And people began to try to justify that Jaquen was Rhaegar with photos, long hair, his grace…” he teased to Los Siete Reinos. One of the most important things to notice is that during Robert’s Rebellion, when Rhaegar Targaryen died, his body was never really found, which is a really surprising thing really.
That’s not all, when you look at it, Rhaegar Targaryen and Jaqen H’ghar have a lot of similarities. Fans mostly point to the fact that both of them have long, wavy hair. If Rhaegar does return, it will certainly be a significant one, as it was revealed that he was the father of Jon Snow, so it will certainly have a huge impact on the series of Game of Thrones. We’ve seen characters returning from the dead before, so it can happen again.
Another way in which it could happen is if Rhaegar Targaryen’s face is used by the Faceless Men of Braavos. If Braavos does participate in the War against the dead, then it will make even more sense. Tom Wlaschiha also said, “I do not know. From what I have seen in the last season what is left is going to focus on the great battle of Westeros. But I do not know. At the moment it does not seem that Braavos participates.”
Do you think we’ll see Rhaegar Targaryen again in the 8th Season of Game of Thrones. Let me know in the comments section below.
Two Major GoT Characters May Be Meeting In Season 8
Game of Thrones Season 8 is going to be the ultimate season in the series, and there is a lot of stuff that we have to look forward to. In the Season 7 finale, we finally saw Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow join forces, to take down the Night King.
After everyone met at the Dragonpit, Jon and Dany headed towards the North, to Winterfell, to arrange the defenses of Westeros, and prepare for war. However, the North doesn’t like the Targaryens. This is because, as most of you would know, Lyanna Stark was presumed to be kidnapped by Rhaegar Targaryen, and later both Ned’s father, and elder brother were killed, which ultimately led to Robert’s Rebellion.
As the banners were called by Jon Arryn, the result was the destruction of the biggest and strongest dynasty the world had ever seen. But, now, Daenerys Targaryen is back, and she is vying to sit on the Throne. Even though Jon Snow has declared for Dany, I don’t think the North will be okay with it.
What makes it even worrying for Daenerys is the fact that she might have to be on opposing sides with Sansa Stark at the beginning of the next season. Recently, Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark were spotted at the same place, and we all know that the filming for Season 8 of Game of Thrones is already underway. This probably means that they’ll be filming some scenes together.
I don’t think that Sansa will be okay with Daenerys Targaryen coming in and taking their anonymity just like that. So, for the first episode, or maybe more, we might see Sansa Stark and Daenerys Targaryen at each other’s throats.
