Jon Snow is one of the most admired characters in the whole series.

He is 'The White Wolf' of Winterfell and supposedly 'The Prince That Was Promised'. Throughout the books and the TV series, he remains a character who is admired among the fans.

George R. R. Martin in his novels portrayed Jon as a character who although cherishes his connection to all the Stark children, he still longs for the acknowledgment of a mother he knows nothing of. He longs to be called a Stark instead of Snow, and it is in fact Ned Stark that says "Winter is coming", not Jon Snow. One of the things that surprised everyone about Jon Snow was his killing at the hands of his colleagues of the Night's Watch under a sign that says 'Traitor', but he did return later on. In the TV series, Jon not only becomes the King in the North, but it gets revealed that he is also the true king of the seven kingdoms, the true heir of the iron throne. That is why we have compiled a list of Jon Snow quotes for you to enjoy. Whether you are looking for Jon Snow quotes from season Seven, or 'Game Of Thrones' quotes from Jon Snow, you will find them here.
