There have been many theories in the past to decode the real identity of the prime antagonist of Game of Thrones Season 8 which is none other than the terrifying Night King who is all set to invade the Seven Kingdoms with his massive army of the Wights having almost breached the wall. Many have wondered how did the Night King came to being and what is his exact motive. It is well known that the Night King was initially a human who was transformed into a White Walker by the Children of the Forest to act as a prime weapon against the First Men. But the Night King turned against them and that led the Children of the First Men join hands with the First Men to fight the White Walkers who then went in a deep hibernation phase for many years but are now back with a vengeance and have already breached the Wall. So let us look at the various theories surrounding the Night King.

One of the most common theory is that Bran Stark is the ultimate Night King. The theory is that Bran warged into the man when he was being transformed as the Night King and is now trapped inside the Night King’s body. Many fans live by this theory and it will be interesting to see if it turns out to be true. Many are deducing that Bran will go on to sacrifice himself in order to defeat the Night King as that will mean destroying the Night King completely by the root.

The other theory stands by the fact that the Night King may be a Stark or was a commander of the Night’s Watch. It is presumed that the Night King was clearly an ancestor of House Stark given his strong affiliation for the members of the Stark family especially Bran Stark and Jon Snow. The other popular legend goes by the fact that the Night King was a commander of the Night’s Watch who had fell in love with a female White Walker and had declared himself as the Night King.

It is also speculated by the fans that the Night King was the Three Eyed Raven. If you look clearly, the Night King has the profound power to predict the future beginning from his attack at Hardhome or the fierce battle with Dany’s dragons. The Night King seems to be always alert of his enemies and seems to be always prepared for an attack. It is needless to say that so the possibility of the Night King being the Three Eyed Raven originally can be true.

Well, some fans also preach the idea that the Night King can be a Targaryen. It was seen that the Night King started riding atop Viserion who is now an ice dragon. It can be deduced that he is a Targaryen and also that the latest episode saw the Night King leaving a Targaryen sigil sign with fire surrounding the dead body of the Umber boy. Some even went on to say that the Night King is none other than Jon Snow’s father Rhaegar Targaryen who was converted into the Night King by the White Walkers after his death during the Robert’s Rebellion.

While it be interesting to see the identity of the ultimate Night King revealed in the final season, it is not be missed that the Night King and his army will now pose a serious threat to the Seven Kingdoms after the breaching of the Wall which only Jon Snow seems to be vary of. So, who do you think the real Night King is? Shoot us with your theories.
