The Night King Is A Stark, And We Found The Proof In The Books
The identity of the Night King is one of ‘Game of Thrones’ biggest mysteries. The series has already ended, but it seems like the final episodes left fans very unhappy. But there's good news for them - there are still books, and they will probably have a different another ending. Which one? Read on to find out!
THE NIGHT KING
While it is hard to tell the difference between good and bad in the series as people often scheme and play games to achieve their goals, the Night King has clearly been painted as the main antagonist in Westeros. There is little information about him because of the mystery surrounding his life. He was created thousands of years ago by the Children of the Forest, who stabbed a human with Dragonglass.
Among his many abilities like raising the dead and turning them into wights, he can also transform human babies into White Walkers. However, there is no telling if the rest of the Walkers can do the same. It seems pretty clear that the White Walkers are more than intelligent, unlike the wights who are more similar to ‘Walking Dead’ zombies.
HIS IDENTITY IN THE BOOKS
As most fans know, the show changed a lot in comparison to the novels. Bran was taught that the Night King was the 13th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, and he was enticed by a female Other. She was never mentioned in the HBO program, but the book described her as pale with blue eyes like the White Walkers.
The story goes on to say that they were intimate, and she stole his soul. Since then, the Night King became a horrible leader of the Night’s Watch, believing himself a king with her as his queen. The Starks and Joramun, the then-King Beyond the Wall, gathered to stop his rule over the Wall. He fell after 13 years, and it was revealed he and the queen were sacrificing something to the Others. Also, his name was forbidden.
