The theories of the Game of Thrones fans are incredible; whether you are a passionate fan or just a casual one, you have likely heard some quite strange scenarios. Theory speculations by the most enthusiastic fan spread around Azor Ahai, a legendary figure in the faith of R’hllor, the Lord of Light.
As stated in A Song Of Ice and Fire (ASOIAF) lore, Azor Ahai forged a sword named the Lightbringer which he used to defeat the darkness of the Great Other – the God of Darkness and his children (the White Walkers).
Azor had three attempts to forge the sword; in the first attempt, the blade shattered once cooled with water; in the second try, he thrust the sword into a lion; and in the final effort, he pushed it into his greatest love, Nissa Nissa, and by doing so he trapped her soul inside the blade, making it a mythical weapon. The prophecy claims he will be reborn as The Prince That Was Promised.
With the background story now explained, the new theory brought to us by Reddit fan Poseidonwaves says that Jaime Lannister is the reborn Azor Ahai who will triumph over the Night King, ending the long night.
The theory suggests that Jaime and Cersei are Targaryens, their birth father being King Aerys, aka the Mad King.
If Jaime is the Prince That Was Promised, Tyrion would represent the lion (as he is a Lannister, after all), and Cersei would be Nissa Nissa.
This creates a possibility for Jaime to be the one to win against the White Walkers, again with the power of Lightbringer.
Now, despite this being a cool theory, there really isn’t much to it that can be backed up right now, and if one pays close enough attention to the show or the novels then they might realize that Daenerys is more likely to be Azor reborn.
Though the prophecy calls for Azor to become The Prince That Was Promised, George R.R. Martin has always enjoyed flipping things on their head and that promised prince just wind up being a promised princess.
After all, Melisandre has stated, “When the red star bleeds and the darkness gathers, Azor Ahai shall be born again amidst smoke and salt to wake dragons out of stone. The bleeding star has come and gone, and Dragonstone is the place of smoke and salt. Stannis Baratheon is Azor Ahai reborn!”
But unbeknownst to Melisandre, Daenerys was born on Dragonstone and has literally hatched dragons out of stone in a miraculous ritual under the red comet. Based on Melisandre’s own words and beliefs, Daenerys seems to be Azor Ahai reborn if foreshadowing is anything to go by but only time will really tell!
