Game of Thrones: Why Jon Snow Is Azor Ahai

Game of Thrones: Why Jon Snow Is Azor Ahai
A popular Game of Thrones theory, especially among book readers, has been floating around for a couple seasons now - that Jon Snow is going to be revealed as "the prince that was promised," aka the reincarnation of legendary hero Azor Ahai.

For a little background, Azor Ahai is a mythical figure who used his powerfully magical sword Lightbringer to defeat the invading White Walker army during the Long Night Winter in Westeros thousands of years ago.

A prophecy claims that during the next long Winter, when the White Walkers are again closing in on the seven kingdoms, Azor Ahai will return as "the prince that was promised," a hero born "amidst salt and smoke" who will "draw from the fire a burning sword." This hero is the one who will beat back the dark army.
