Since the revelation of Historia Reiss’ pregnancy, Attack on Titan fans have been wondering who the baby’s father could be. One theory stood out: Could Eren be the father, or is it another man?
While the last anime episode of Attack of the Titans will air on April 3rd, many fans are wondering who could be the father of Historia Reiss’ baby, Queen of Paradise. So far, Historia has had a relatively small presence in Season 4, which has spawned many theories about her child’s importance and impact on the story, but also on the conclusion of the story’s arc.
Recently, two dominant factions have emerged within the fandom, each with a different theory about the nature of the relationship between histories. One of the fan groups believes that the official story that the child’s father was a farmer that Historia knew as a child would be true. However, the other group suspected soEren Jäger would be the true father and companion of Historia.
Does Historia’s pregnancy have a specific purpose?
In episode 69 entitled ” beautiful principles‘, broadcast on February 14, 2021, viewers discovered that two years earlier, with the help of Sieg Jäger and Jelena’s anti-Mahr mercenaries, Paradise Island had managed to establish contact with its former ally, the land of Heazul. Kiyomi Azumabito, sent by Heazul, had then met with the leaders of Paradis to begin negotiations for a partnership between the two nations. However, Kiyomi confessed that he wanted to come to Paradis for this purpose Meet Mikasa, who turned out to be the prodigal child of their country’s shogunate. It is later believed that this negotiation was actually just an excuse on the part of Heazul to request resources from Paradis. In exchange for these resources, Heazul will support Sieg’s three-pronged plan to protect the island.
That was the first part of the plan Paradis tests the Grand Terrassement to give the rest of the world a glimpse of their power, but also to frighten and control the citizens of other nations. After this show of force, Heazul would then have offered his military support to reinforce the Paradis army so that the threat of the Great Earthquake would no longer be necessary. This implied, as Kiyomi Azumabito pointed out at the time, that the Founding Titan and a Titan of royal blood are conferred.
Regarding the transmission of the titans, Kiyomi had also stipulated that Sieg should pass the titan beast on to someone with royal blood and that until her death, i.e. 13 years after she received the titan beast, Titan holders should have as many children as possible. Therefore, since Historia was the only known person of royal blood who had not inherited a Titan, it was her duty to preserve the Bestial Titan and sire as much as possible. The young queen also realized that if there was a need to protect Paradis, it was up to her to sacrifice herself. She therefore decided to agree to receive the Titan Bestial while having as many children as possible in the time she would be given..
Is the young farmer the father of Historia’s first child?
Shortly after this scene, Historia is shown in a rocking chair, visibly several months pregnant, assumes that the scene takes place several months after the negotiations. The only person accompanying her is a young man who asks her to come back inside the house because she has to take care of herself.
Several MPs are later seen talking about Historia’s pregnancy. Roeg, a senior officer, is also seen making negative comments about Historia, saying, ” Talk about a queen! It’s nothing but a little resistance… Apart from being an insight into Roeg’s opinion on Historia, it is above all a reflection on the mate chosen by the young queen, Choice, which Roeg absolutely disapproves of, given the young man’s social background.
Naile Dork also steps in to calm Roeg while explaining the nature and origin of the relationship between Historia and the young man. As a matter of fact, The two young people come from the same region and have known each other since childhood, the boy has fun throwing rocks at Historia to get his attention. Only later will he try to make amends for his behavior by coming to work at the orphanage that the young queen opened. Naile strongly suggests that it was the willingness to redeem himself, but also the boy’s kindness, that would have led to the birth of a romantic relationship with Historia. During this conversation, Dork reassures that Historia is free to choose her partner and that the military conducted background checks on the young man. He will also emphasize that he is not controlled by anyone. Dork’s explanation therefore suggests that the story has been verified by multiple sources.
Is Eren the father of Historia’s child?
Despite this explanatory scene, many fans were unconvinced, not least because the farmer was never seen or even mentioned outside of this episode. That may indeed be strangeAn event as important as Historia’s pregnancy becomes so commonplace, even disappointing. This caused many fans to speculate, believing that there was definitely a lot more to discover than meets the eye.
The first element that made fans cringe was Historia’s facial expression when she found the young farmer. In fact, the young queen was perfect stoicjust depressed. It’s not really the look you’d expect on the face of a person happy to see an acquaintance or loved one they’ve lost sight of. Especially when we know that Historia is set to start a romantic relationship with the young man. Therefore, based on this, some fans have speculated that Historia may not be dating the young farmer and such the story told by Naile Dork would be partly wrong.
It is therefore possible that the pawn was simply used as a cover to protect Historia, Eren and their child. In fact, if ever the army of Paradis or some alien nation should find out that Eren was the father, it’s not impossible The leaders would try anything to capture Historia and the child, to put pressure on Eren to prevent it from triggering the great earthquake. This hypothesis would then explain the lack of chemistry between Historia and the young farmer, but also why the two young people are not married. However, the reason why the young farmer would have agreed to take part in this plan is quite obscure, but the explanation could be found in the story told by Dork. So instead of being with Historia for love, the young farmer would above all ask forgiveness for his childhood behavior.
Also, an incorrect story element has led fans to believe that Eren is the father of Historia’s child. This is the chronological sequence of events between the beginning of Eren’s mission with Mahr and the beginning of the young Queen’s pregnancy. In fact, Eren would have gone to Mahr shortly after Historia was pregnant, and 9 or 10 months later she would therefore give birth during the Great Earthquake. Of course, it could also be a simple coincidence.
Eventually that is revealed in the paper manga Frock Vorster isn’t the only person who knows about Eren’s true plan. History knew about it too. This could mean that part of Eren’s plan was to have a baby with Historia to protect Paradis and restore it to its former glory. While Frock’s role was clear, Historia was not. And if Eren took the risk of explaining his plan to Historia, it should have good reason. Therefore, fans speculated that their relationship was more than friendly, especially since Eren could not tell Armin and Mikasa about his plan.
So who is the real father of Historia’s child?
While this second theory is particularly interesting and may prove persuasive, it is essentially based on assumptions. Still, it’s understandable that fans of Attack of the Titans, given Hajime Isayama’s regular use of cliffhangers, believe that Historia’s child is part of a larger purpose within the storyline. However, it could also be that relations and the entire Historia arc ended more smoothly than many had hoped.
While the timing of events between Historias Fett and Eren’s departure for Mahr may seem strange, even suspicious, it would be more surprising if Eren were the child’s father and part of his plan. In fact, Eren had gone into a black rage upon realizing that Historia would be used as such a political pawn of the country of Heazul. Using Historia in his own plan would therefore be particularly hypocritical on Eren’s part. It is therefore more than likely that the real father of Historia’s child is the young farmer. And although the relationship between the two young people is a bit complicated, It would be more reasonable to wonder if Historia is really in love with the young man or is she dating him to protect herself? As a reminder, the last episode of Attack of the Titans will be broadcast on April 3rd crispy roll and Wakanim.
