Jon Snow Finally Knows He’s A Targaryen — Here’s The Full Family Tree He Needs

Rhaegar was killed by Robert Baratheon during the Battle Of Trident during Robert’s Rebellion, hundreds of miles north of King’s Landing. The death of Rhaegar, the most beloved member of the royal family and expert warrior, all but ended the Targaryen cause. However, Aeyrs still sat on the Iron Throne. The Targaryen dynasty was finally destroyed when Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), a member of the Kingsguard, stabbed Aeyrs to death and opened the castle up to his father, Lord Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance).
