Guys, you must remember when we learned in school that Romeo and Juliet were actually children when they fell in love. Romeo was around 16 years old and Juliet 13. We were completely freaking out about that fact, right?
But, no matter the age, they fell in love, got married and in the end killed themselves.
Anyway, prepare to feel that kind of shock again, because we have figured out how young Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, the ‘Game of Thrones’ stars, are meant to be.
We already know that Daenerys is Jon Snow’s aunt. Ned Stark’s sister escaped with Rhaegar Targaryen, Dany’s older brother. Anyway, to cut the story short, Jon was born. We had a suspicion that the Dragon Queen and her nephew may be almost the same age.
However, having in mind their travails and presumably years of trudging around, we thought they’d be the early 30s. Or maybe a little older.
But, according to Game of Thrones Wiki fan page, Jon was born in 281 Aegon’s Landing. About Dany, she was born in 282 Aegon’s Landing. Therefore, there is the only one-year gap between their ages.
Season 7 ‘Game of Thrones’ is now set in the year 304 AL. That makes Jon around 23 years old and Dany aged 22, and few or fewer months.
