Season seven of Game Of Thrones was SO satisfying. Mainly because it was FINALLY confirmed that Jon Snow is actually a Targaryen, and Gendry came back.
Now, GoT genealogists’ have found a family tie between the two and like we said, we're shook!
We know that trying to keep up with the family tree's in the show is next to impossible, but some people make it their mission to do so, and thank god for them.
It's beyond complicated, especially since Jon Snow’s real name is Aegon Targaryen, and there are 13th other character with that name...
Several generations back, Gendry - a bastard - and former bastard Jon Snow’s family were actually entwined. 3 generations back, Gendry’s great-grandmother, Rhaelle Targaryen, is Jon Snow’s great-aunt.
YouTuber Alt Shift X have shared the family trees to explain the link further.
Unfortunately, it sort of makes Gendry related to Arya, as her twice removed cousin.
Well, at least they aren't Aunt and Uncle!
