You probably should've used spoiler tags for that. It is a popular theory amongst many people who have read the books and if it turns out to be accurate it's a book spoiler.I just caught up with the TV show. After season 1, read 1st book and then finished season 2 of show. Forgive me for not going through the entire thread to see if this has already been discussed: the identity of Jon Snow. Could Jon Snow be in fact a Targaryen? A union between Rhaegar Targaryen and Ned Stark's sister. That explains why his identity is pretty well guarded by Ned and his (Ned) disagreement with Robert concerning the remaining surviving Targaryen children. Also given that Ned was the most honorable man of Westeros, he probably did not cheat on his wife and only wish to protect his nephew. Given what little to go on it does seem plausible.
