Since Rhaegar and Lyanna married, he is also something more. Rhaegar believed his child with Lyanna would be Azor Ahai reborn. Also, Jon has a stronger claim to the throne than Dany or anybody alive. Robert destroyed the Targaryens as he thought Rhaegar kidnapped and raped Lyanna (Lyanna was betrothed to Robert). He even killed a White Walker in a one-on-one duel. And Jon has shown capability against the undead before. Well, the war was still justified in our opinion because Dany and Rhaegar’s father, the Mad King Aerys Targaryen did burn Ned’s father and brother, Lord Rickard Stark and Bran Stark, alive when they demanded Lyanna to be freed. Daenerys Targaryen is the sister of Rhaegar, and is thus not in the direct line. The Targaryens ruled Westeros for hundreds of years before Robert’s Rebellion overthrew them. Daenerys, as opposed to what people in Westeros thought, is not the last Targaryen. Azor Ahai or The Prince Who Was Promised saved the realm from the White Walkers thousands of years ago. The title of the book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, is also said to refer to Jon Snow, who was born of the union between Fire (Rhaegar Targaryen) and Ice (Lyanna Stark), practically making him the primary character. It is believed that the reason why Rhaegar proposed and married Lyanna was to have a child who would be the saviour of the living in the great war to come against the Night King and his army of the dead. 0

His ancestry may also be important to the overarching conflict between the dead and the living. Being the only surviving trueborn son of the prince, after all, makes him the heir to the Iron Throne, since the said prince is dead and he is next in line. Popular Photos
