Jon leaves for night watch

Jon Snow grew up at Winterfell Castle, the son of Eddard Stark. Only his wife Catelyn lets Jon know again and again that he’s a bastard. He has a close relationship with his Stark siblings. A visit from Eddard’s brother, Benjen, prompts Jon to join the Night’s Watch. As Ned heads south with Robert Baratheon, Jon Snow accompanies them a bit further. Ned makes Jon realize he has Stark blood and promises to tell him about his mother soon. Jon continues to believe that Ned is his father.

During the Night’s Watch in season 1 of Game of Thrones, Jon learns that most men do not serve there for honor, they have been banished there. In particular, he repeatedly clashed with his trainer, Ser Alliser Thorn.

Over time, Jon gains a reputation with the Night’s Watch, finds many loyal brothers, and hones his combat skills. His calm, reflective and loyal character make him an important member.

While tracking down a wild woman named Ygritte, he discovers the culture of free walking. He falls in love with the girl and becomes a member of the Wildlings.

Jon becomes Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch

Eventually, he returns to Night’s Watch and fights alongside his brothers in GoT Season 4 against the savage invaders. Ygritte is killed and Jon blames himself. After the battle, he is named Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.

At the end of GoT Season 5, he is lured out of his room by men from the Night’s Watch under false pretenses. They stab him one by one in the stomach and Jon dies. However, he is soon revived by Melisandre.

After resurrecting, he joins his cousin Sansa in the north and reclaims their homeland of Winterfell in the “Battle of the Bastards”.

These are the real parents of Jon Snow

At the end of Season 6 of Game of Thrones, Bran Stark learns who Jon Snow’s real parents are. During one of his time travels, he learns that Jon is the child of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. Lyanna dies shortly after giving birth and asks her brother Ned to keep Jon’s identity a secret. His name is Aegon Targaryen.

Jon becomes king in the north

He is then hailed as the King of the North and plans to regain control of all of the North. At the start of Season 7, Jon travels to Dragonstone to ask Dragonglass to use him in the fight against the White Walkers. In doing so, he leaves Sansa in control of Winterfell.

In Dragon’s Stone, he meets Daenerys and, after long negotiations, manages to persuade her to give him the dragon’s glass. In addition, Daenerys assures him of her military support. In order to have Cersei on his side in the fight against the undead as well, Jon travels north with a few men. There, the small squad must capture a ghost.

The team manages to capture a revenant in a spectacular battle. After a risky rescue operation by Daenerys, the two travel to meet Cersei in the dragon pit. They show the captured revenant to Cersei as proof of the undead.

After Cersei pledges her support, he travels north with Daenerys. There he wants to announce the new alliance, because he bowed the knee to Daenerys and accepted her as queen. During the boat trip north, the two grow closer and express romantic feelings.

Jon Snow/Aegon Targaryen is the rightful heir to the throne

In the Season 7 finale, Sam and Bran reunite in Winterfell after seeing each other for a long time. They exchange ideas and can confirm that Jon Snow is not only the son of Rhaegar Targaryen, but also the rightful heir to the throne. Because Rhaeger annulled his marriage to Elia Martell and married pregnant Lyanna Stark. This makes it clear that Jon Snow is actually Aegon Targaryen.

Jon in the Battles of Winterfell and King’s Landing

Winter has long since reached Westeros. Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen are a couple and must save Westeros from the Night King and the undead army. Jon fights bravely, but it’s ultimately Arya who defeats the Night King. Daenerys and Jon travel to King’s Landing with their fleet to overthrow Cersei.

In a surprise attack by Euron Greyjoy, the dragon Rhaegal is slain. Missandei is captured and then beheaded during a trading session on Cersei’s orders. Daenerys is beside herself. After a short period of mourning, she reduces King’s Landing to rubble with Drogon, though the Lannister army surrenders. Jon watches helplessly as he fights for his own survival.

Daenerys feels threatened by him as Jon has more rights to the throne than her. After conquering King’s Landing, however, Daenerys is not satisfied. She wants to “liberate” all of Westeros and Essos from tyrants. Jon notices Daenerys going crazy. He visits Tyrion, who has been arrested for treason. Tyrion urges him to overthrow Daenerys. It’s the only way for him to prevent more innocent people from dying. Although he initially swore allegiance to Daenerys, Jon ended up killing his Dany. Her dragon, Drogon, carries off her lifeless body after melting the Iron Throne in anger. Jon is sentenced to serve the Night’s Watch for the rest of his life.
