25 Best Game Of Thrones Theories That Could Actually Be True

Posted by , Updated on August 27, 2017


Game of Thrones is hands down the best show on television. With its stellar ratings, gripping drama, and compelling characters, it’s the kind of show every network wants but comes sparingly. It’s been quite a ride so far with many shocking moments, but alas, every good show must come to an end. We’re only one season away from the series finale with hundreds of questions left hanging. Who will die? How will it end? Well, plenty of fans have studied and researched the epic tomes of George R.R. Martin in hopes of finding clues to those questions. Ready to hear what they have to say? Here are 25 Best Game Of Thrones Theories That Could Actually Be True. BTW. SPOILER ALERT


Euron Greyjoy is going to steal Dany's dragons.

Euron Greyjoy is acting as the new sadistic villain of the season, and so far he’s doing a lot of damage. But some have wondered, what if he can take control of Khaleesi’s dragons? In the books, Euron has “Dragonbinder” a horn which allows him to do just that. With Euron vying for Cersei’s hand in marriage, it’s plausible he could take one of the dragon’s and use it against Dany.


Cleganebowl will lead to Cersei's death.

Cleganebowl is the theorized final battle between Gregor and Sandor Clegane, or The Mountain and The Hound. However, one theory claims Cersei will be tried for her crimes and will request a trial by combat with The Mountain as her champion. Sandor will step forward to fight against the Mountain. Sandor will win and Cersei will die, making her “valonqar” or “little brother” prophecy come true because Sandor is the little brother of Gregor.


Tyrion is a Targaryen.

There’s a long complicated history behind this theory, but we’ll try to sum it up. It’s said that before he was king, Aerys Targaryen took Joanna Lannister’s virginity and during her wedding night took some “unwonted liberties” during the bedding ceremony. After Cersei and Jaime were born, Joanna and Twyin visited King’s Landing for a tournament event on 272 AC and Joanna died giving birth to Tyrion a year later in 273 AC. Coincidence? Many think not. The theory explains that Aerys must have slept with Joanna again, conceiving Tyrion. It also explains why Tywin would hate him so much.


The Prince Who Was Promised is Jon Snow or Daenerys.

“The Prince Who Was Promised” is part of a prophecy of The Lord of Light, stating a savior will come wielding a fiery sword known as “Lightbringer” to combat a coming darkness. For a while, Melisandre believed Stannis was this person but later chose Jon Snow since he resurrected from the dead. However, lately, we’ve discovered the translation can mean both “Prince or Princess.” Daenarys technically also resurrected from the dead and could be the Princess. So, a theory suggests the two likely candidates are Jon or Dany.


The Wall will be destroyed.

*SPOILER ALERT* In order for The Night King and his massive army of the undead to march into Westeros, it’s been theorized The Wall is going to have to come down at some point. The most recent evidence was when The Hound saw a vision in the fire of the White Walkers marching past a castle near the wall. *UPDATE*, this theory has now been confirmed after tonight’s episode. (Again, spoiler alert…..btw, spoiler alert….continue at your own peril). In a brilliant spectacle, what can only be called an ice dragon has brought the wall down using it’s blue breath!
