How important Game of Thrones characters were related to each other during Jon Snow's birth

Game of Thrones Season 6 was amazing, and one of the biggest reveals of the season had to do with Jon Snow. After years of speculation, Jon Snow, who was disguised as Ned Stark‘s bastard, was finally revealed to be the son of Lyanna Stark, and Rhaegar Targaryen. This might even make him the titular character, being part fire and part ice. His birth name has now been possibly revealed! Read on!

The detail was spotted by one of the fans on the Freefolk subreddit, named theshivsharma, and comes from the Empire Magazine’s Game of Thrones Season 7 special. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, so it looks like it’s safe to assume that it will hold true. Check it out, below :

Jon Snow birth name

So, if we are to believe this bit, Jon Snow’s birth name is Jaehaerys Targaryen! As you know, Snow is the name given to bastards of the North, and considering Ned was trying to pass him off as his own, it is natural that he chose to name him Jon Snow.

Now, talking about Jaehaerys Targaryen, the name is no stranger to the family. If that is actually his name, he will be Jaehaerys III. The first Jaehaerys was the longest reigning Targaryen King, having had a reign of 55 years, and was thus known as Jaehaerys the Old King, and also as Jaehaerys the Conciliator, Jaehaerys the Wise. Jaehaerys II was the sixteenth Targaryen king, and father to Aerys Targaryen, the Mad King, and the great grandfather of Jon Snow.

So, there you have it. We can’t wait for Jon Snow to get legitimized so that he can finally use his true name. However, knowing Jon, he will probably want to stick to his current name. What do you think? Tell us in the comments, below!

Game of Thrones Fans recreate Westeros in Minecraft

Innovative minds can be found in the most unexpected of places. The motivation to build something different often arises from an idea one loves dearly. Minecraft is one of the most popular games currently, where you can show off your creative ideas. One particular Minecraft server, Westeroscraft, is dedicated to building stuff related to the world of Game of Thrones. After months of hard work, they have finally managed to create their own Westeros inside the game. And it seriously looks amazing!

Below you’ll find a selection of recent tweets from Westeroscraft, providing some great images and explanations of what is being shown:

The official Westeroscraft Twitter account shared yet another screenshot of the work-in-progress Westeroscraft server. There, Minecraft fans who love A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones are recreating Westeros block by block, and the results are truly impressive as the images and videos linked at their official wiki show. We can’t imagine how many hours of work have gone into it!

Last week, One particular Game of Thrones fan created one of the most amazing dioramas of a medieval mini-alley in their bookshelf. It was like peering right into Westeros.

Would you like to play or create something on this Minecraft server? Tell us what you’d like to build or add in the comments below!

That Time When George Lucas Visited the set of Game of Thrones

Fantasy has always been everyone’s favourite mode of escape from problems of real life. Be it the vastness of space or the mystical land of dragons, they have kept fans hooked for decades. George Lucas, the man responsible for making Star Wars a household name, celebrated his 77th birthday on 14th this month. And he himself is a great fan of fantastical worlds, as evident from his great love for Game of Thrones. He once visited the set of the highly popular TV show during the filming of the 8th season.

He could have [made a cameo], with the beard!” joked Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth). “That’s not a bad idea. We should have stuck him in.” It was surely a fun experience, having this cinema icon on the set of a show that had become pretty iconic himself. Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman made sure to get a picture with George, and shared it on his birthday.

George Lucas has a history of showing up on various film and TV sets, whether they’re related to something he created or not. But one thing is for sure, the universe he created and his legacy will entertain the audience for generations to come.

The Star Wars creator deserves all our praise for the amazing world he has created. Send in your best wishes for George in the comments below!

Locals capture first glimpse of a Stand-in for a Dragon on House of The Dragon set

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has created a huge hype amongst fantasy lovers. HBO is leaving no stones unturned in the marketing of the fantasy series. In the last few days, they’ve released several photos of some of the key characters in costume. The locals at Cornwall have done their part as well, leaking a few pictures of the filming every now and then. However, it is a well-known fact fans are the most hyped up about one expected element – the Targaryen dragons. The show promises to provide the audience with a larger number of dragons, and we can’t wait to see them all.

Last week, locals at Cornwall spotted the crew filming at one of the sites. And it seemed a lot like a stand-in for one of the dragons. It looked a lot similar to how dragons were filmed in crucial scenes on Game of Thrones. Check it out yourself!

Game of Thrones actors had to use a lot of imagination when it came to acting alongside the dragons. Picture yourself acting in front of someone waving a ball on a stick at you pretending it is a fearsome flying fire-breathing dragon.

House of the Dragon will have a lot of dragons, far more than Game of Thrones. Which dragon do you think they are filming in the Tweet? Talk to us in the comments below!
