Warning: Potential Game of Thrones Book and TV Series Spoilers Ahead!
As HBO’s Game of Thrones begins to wind down, fans will discover which of the many theories will prove to be true or false. One of the most prominent fan theories relates to the prophecy of “The Prince That Was Promised”. The prophecy tells of a hero who saved the world from darkness thousands of years ago and who will allegedly be reborn again to save the world once more. Many fans speculate that Jon Snow, recently confirmed the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, is the “The Prince That Was Promised”. In an interview with The Huffington Post, actor Kit Harington addressed the speculation and revealed that he does not care about the popular theory.
Harington explained why does not care about the theory and how he feels Jon Snow would respond to such news.
“I think you have to wait and see what happens this year, and if we find out anything more about Jon. I think Jon would hate the term ‘The Prince That Was Promised.’ If someone turned to him and said, ‘You’re The Prince That Was Promised,’ he just wouldn’t pay much attention. That’s what I love about him, so I don’t really care about it either. You know, I think that’s what’s great about him. He’s got very little ego on him.”
While Melisandre has referred to Jon Snow as the Prince, she has been mistaken in the past. While there is certainly a considerable amount of evidence to support the idea, only time will tell if the theory is correct.
Game of Thrones will premiere on July 16, 2017 on HBO.

5 ‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel Ideas
Game of Thrones fans have a long wait until we finally see Daenerys Targaryen finish her journey across the narrow sea and step foot on Westeros. Her army of Unsullied will soon come into contact with the new King of the North, Jon Snow and the wicked Queen Cersei Lannister. Season 7, debuting this summer, might be one of the most action packed yet, but that doesn’t mean the upcoming war will be as intense as other confrontations George R.R. Martin has littered the Westrosi past with.
HBO needs another big moneymaker after Game of Thrones finally ends, and I don’t think they need to look too hard for an appropriate replacement. Casey Bloys, the President of Programming at HBO, has mentioned the possibility of a GOT spin-off, but I think a prequel series might work better.
Before all you die-hard Star Wars fans get mad at me for even thinking such a thing, remember, not all prequels are bad! The Notorious GRRM has already established a complex past that goes back centuries, giving HBO a lot of exciting material to choose from. I don’t think any of these series should last more than three or four seasons each – to ensure the stories don’t drag on- but hey, HBO can still make money from a limited series so it’s a possibility.
