GOT- The suppositions about Jon Snow’s true birth

GOT- The suppositions about Jon Snow’s true birth 





Fact 1:

In Game of Thrones Gilly reads the records of High Septon Maynard: “Maynard says here that he issued an annulment for a Prince Rhaegar and remarried him to someone else at the same time in a secret ceremony in Dorne. “ 




Fact 2

Last season, when Bran had the Tower of Joy vision, it basically confirmed that Jon’s parents were Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. 
























In season seven Bran’s second vision of the nuptial, where Rhaegar Targryen and Lyanna Stark (Ned Stark’s sister) legally wed confirmed the legitimacy of Jon as the full Targaryen heir. 

The Nuptials:












A quick reminder: Rhaegar was the oldest son of Mad King Aerys, which makes him Daenerys’ brother. He was married to Elia Martell, though that apparently got overthrown for his new found love Lyanna Stark. Now Targaryens had a long history of incest, having spent over 300 years wedding brothers to sisters to keep their bloodline pure. This would not be unsettling for Danny, however, Jon aka Aegon Targryen had a strong moral upbringing by Ned Stark. It’s highly unlikely that he would take this shocking revelation, which makes his relationship with Daenerys incestuous. He may freak out, and I would think the latter be the case. 




Either way, this piece of information certainly isn't going to make things easier for the pair. Especially since Rhaegar also was next in line for the Iron Throne… so if he had a living son… Yep: Jon/Aegon is the true heir to the Iron Throne.

A Proud Canadian Elvis Stojko


A Proud Canadian Elvis Stojko








Elvis Stojko (born March 22, 1972) is a Canadian figure skater who is a three-time World champion (1994, 1995, 1997), two-time Olympic silver medalist (1994, 1998), and seven-time Canadian champion (1994, 1996–2000, and 2002).

He’s also a proud recipient of the MSC and MSM. The Meritorious Service Decorations are bestowed by the Canadian monarch, generally through his or her viceroy-in-Council. Created in 1991, the medal is intended to recognize individuals—both Canadian and foreign—who have carried out meritorious acts bringing benefit and honor in either of two categories: military and civilian. In all cases, however, the event being recognized must have taken place in Canada or involved Canadian citizens. 





Stojko’s Slovenian father was first to arrive in Canada on a boat in 1955. His Hungarian mother Irenee followed soon after, fleeing from the 1956 Soviet invasion. Stojko was born in Newmarket, Ontario and was named Elvis, because his parents were ardent fans of Elvis Presley. Stojko grew up in Richmond Hill, Ontario. He began skating at the age of four and won his first trophy when he was six. He eventually settled in Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico in 2001. On June 20, 2010, he married Mexican figure skater Gladys Orozco in Las Vegas. They resided in Ajijic until June 2014, when they relocated to Toronto.

Readiness


Readiness





When clouds rise in the sky, it is a sign that it will rain.

There is nothing to do but to wait until after the rain falls.

It is the same in life when destiny is at work.

We should not worry and seek to shape the future by interfering in things before the time is ripe.

We should quietly fortify the body with food and drink and the mind with gladness and good cheer.

Fate comes when it will, and thus we are ready.
