6. He’d Rule Fairly

Jon has had a hard life. Everything has been against him from the start. Catelyn hated him and he was never really accepted since he was named the bastard son of Eddard Stark. He knows what it feels like to be outcast and to be beneath those around him.

So he’d rule fairly and justly. He knows the struggles that can face all those around Westeros because of his own upbringing. Yes, some of the other contenders also would be fair rulers, Jon would be fair to everyone.

Daenerys does a lot for those who cannot fight for themselves but it, sometimes, clouds her judgment and makes it an unfair playing field. Jon seemingly sees both sides. Maybe it is because he once judged the wildlings before he was with them for an extended period of time, but whatever it is, Jon tends to look at all sides now before making a plan of attack.

The key to ruling Westeros successfully is to treat everyone fairly and justly. In the past, most kings wanted to do whatever was best for themselves or their family. But to lead, you must lead for the people. And you know who would lead for the people and look pretty good doing it? Jon Snow.
