    I would assume having lineage/parentage with both the Starks AND Barratheons would give Jon "legitimacy" to rule the 7 Kingdoms with Dany if it came to that.

    Again, lots of details in the books I may have forgotten & I'm drinking tonight. :)

    A village can not reorganize village life to suit the village idiot.

      is that a) he's a bastard son, and bastards are by definition not legitimate
      b) He's sworn to the Night's Watch.  He can't rule the 7 Kingdoms, and certainly can't marry anyone.

      Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.

        wouldn't that become moot after what happens to him in ADWD?

          It isn't unprecedented for a bastard to be legitimized, as we saw with Roose Bolton's bastard Ramsay ("don't call him that!")

          Now, Jon Snow refuses Stannis's offer, but we'll see what happens to him when (if) he wakes up.  I myself wonder if he's not the chosen one of R'hollor, and we've seen with Beric and Catelyn that the Lord of Light chooses to resurrect those who serve justice.   So even if Jon dies, he might not die for long.

        "Legitimacy" can be established by royal decree, like Stannis offers to do in ADWD.

      I think this thread is half right.

      I think jon's mom is lyanna stark, but his dad is rhaegar targaryen.

      so the "song of ice and fire" is jon's song.  ice = stark, fire = targaryen.

      (this way he gets to command one of the dragons when the big battle finally happens in the books lol)

      This comment is dedicated to my mellow Adept2U and his Uncle Marcus
