NEW YORK, June 30 (UPI) -- HBO has confirmed who Jon Snow's parents are in new family tree infographic.

The chart which explains how key players in Game of Thrones are related to each other, features Jon Snow situated at the bottom connected to Lyanna Stark, his mother, and Rhaegar Targaryen, his father.

This confirms what fans have theorized for years and makes Jon Snow [Kit Harington] the nephew of Daenerys Targaryen [Emilia Clarke].

The infographic comes after Game of Thrones' Season 6 finale which featured a flashback scene of Lyanna handing her brother Ned Stark her newly born child as she laid in her deathbed. While not outright stated, it was clear Lyanna was being presented as Jon Snow's mother.

As stated by Petyr Baelish [Aidan Gillen] in an earlier episode, Rhaegar had abducted Lyanna after she was promised to Robert Baratheon.

On Monday, Game of Thrones executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss revealed their plans for the final two seasons of the hit drama, explaining that the series will wrap up in 13-15 more episodes.

"It's two more seasons we're talking about," Benioff said. "From pretty close to the beginning, we talked about doing this in 70-75 hours, and that's what we'll end up with. Call it 73 for now ... We've known the end for quite some time and we're hurtling towards it."
