Julius Caesar was the dictator of the Roman Empire; and Jon Snow was Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch – both leaders in their time (and worlds – real and not); they seem to have encountered a similar fate.
On the day of his death; Julius Caesar received a petition from Tillius Cimber, asking Caesar to recall his exiled brother. Similarly, Olly came to Jon Snow to tell him that a Wildling had information on the whereabouts of Jon’s uncle.
Caesar’s conspirators surrounded him; just as Jon was surrounded by his Watch brothers.
Caesar was then stabbed 23 times by his conspirators. Jon was stabbed multiple times by his Watch brothers.
Suetonius reported that some conspirators recall Caesar’s last words to be, “you too, child?” In response to Brutus also betraying him. If this is true; this is akin to Jon saying, “no Olly, don’t…” before Olly stabs him.
After the assassination of Caesar, the conspirators walked Rome shouting, “people of Rome, we are once again free!” Every time Jon was stabbed by his Watch brothers; they said, “for the Watch.” Both the conspirators and the Watch brothers wanted to free their community of leaders who had an alternative vision to what they believed in.
Both Caesar’s and Jon’s bodies were left/abandoned where they had been killed. What do you think – does Jon Snow’s death mirror Julius Caesar’s assassination?
