9. He’s a Bastard, Orphan, Son of a Whore…

Shall we compare thee to the hit musical Hamilton? Yes we shall. How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a Stark dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot on the northern wall grow up to be a contender for the iron throne?

Easy! Have your whole family die and leave it up to you to be the one to rule the land of Westeros since you’re the oldest child left! Basically Jon Snow is the Alexander Hamilton of Game of Thrones. He even gets killed!

He is the underdog who rises from nothing to become one of the main contenders for the Iron Throne. It might just be because the musical is still a hot topic even after being out for a year but you can definitely see the comparisons between Jon Snow and Alexander Hamilton.

They were two unlikely men who are succeeding in ways those before them could not. Everyone doubted their abilities and yet here they are, rising above the ashes and being better that anyone who ever doubted them. Now all we need is Jon to do a rap musical about his struggles and call it Snow. How do we get Lin-Manuel Miranda to get this going?
