Secrets of Westeros: Who are Jon Snow’s parents?
The question: Who is Jon Snow’s mother?
It’s Robert Baratheon’s remark, ‘’ She must have been a rare wench to make Lord Stark forget his honor” that I’m using to spark this debate. Rare wench, indeed. You could even use the word ‘fictional’ if you like. Catelyn Stark notes that ‘Whoever Jon’s mother had been, Ned must have loved her fiercely, because nothing she said ‘would persuade him to send the boy away.’ Yes, Ned did, in fact, love Jon’s mother fiercely. Contradiction at its best? Not quite.
Technically, no spoilers as what is offerred is pure conjecture (except for the tv-only people, obviously, but it's not like they are reading this).
