    Maester Aemon is basically their grand uncle (or something like that). I'll have to check to see exactly how he's related to the younger Targaryens. Aemon has a very interesting backstory.

    Spoiler:
    From what I've been told, many years before the events in Game of Thrones, he was once offered the crown but he refused.


    Men of the Night's Watch forsake any loyalties to their former houses so while he's technically related to Daenerys and Viserys, he has virtually no loyalties to House Targaryen. Being with the Night's Watch for so long, I think everybody's forgotten that he was even there.

    I have read the first book, and only seen three episodes, but I had a thought.

    Spoiler:
    I think Jon Snow is not Ned's son, but Robert's. Remember Cersei saying she had a dark-haired son who died? Ned is very honourable and I don't see him cheating on his wife, whereas Robert is proud of the fact. I think Jon is either the 'dead' son, or one of Robert's bastards.

    I doubt that. More likely and probably the most favourite fans' theory is
    Spoiler:
    that Jon is in fact son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen

    I can see that (john's lineage)

    he is definitely not
    Spoiler:
    Ned's son, not in my opinion, Ned let his honor take a hit to raise the child in safety


    Kinda like one of Robert's other bastards
    Spoiler:

    the smith, Gendry. Obviously I have no idea where the book's going, and I'm just starting dance with dragons, but I wonder at Gendry and Arya having the companionship that could eventually grow into something more

    Ned loved Robert as a brother. If Jon is his son I don't see any reason why Ned didn't tell that to Robert or Cat. Robert's bastard were safe while he was king. But if Jon is Rhaegar's son it would be a huge problem. Robert hated all Targareyns and Jon may be one of them. And if Lyanna left with Rhaegar on her own because she may have loved Rhaegar that would be even worse. Ned promised his sister something and telling that Robert (one person who was like brother to himt would destroy their relationship and put Lyanna's son into a danger. No only from Robert, but also from Lannisters and other houses as well.

    I completely agree with this.
    Spoiler:
    It also validates Ned's statement to Jon when on their last moments together, Ned told Jon, "my blood is in your veins." If he's Lyanna's son, the Stark blood is still there.

    Got the dvds of this for my birthday last week. Slowly going through them. I think the final scene in this episode with Syrio Forel was the first one that was really true to the books.
