Since the very start of HBO's Game of Thrones -- and even before that if you were a fan of George R.R. Martin's books -- people have been wondering who Jon Snow's mother really is. We know it's not Ned's Stark's wife, Catelyn, thanks to both Jon's surname ("Snow" is the surname in the Game of Thrones universe that denotes a bastard child of the northern region) and the fact Lady Stark couldn't stand the sight of Jon Snow because it reminded her of her husband's indiscretions. While Ned Stark states very early on to Robert Baratheon that Jon's mother is woman called Wylla, very few believe this woman actually exists, that the name is just a cover up for the true identity of Jon Snow's parentage.
But who could be Jon Snow's mother? Let's have a look at the possibilities.
The only question now we need to ask is will Jon Snow's lineage be revealed to fans in this season of Game of Thrones?
