Since the revelation that Historia is pregnant in the final season of Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), her fans have been theorizing about who is the father of her baby,could it be the same Eren Jaeger or is there someone else? Over the course of the last few months, two factions have developed within the fandom, each supporting a different theory about the nature of the Historia relationship. One group believes that the origin of this child has already been confirmed, being the character of the farmer, while others have hypothesized that Eren Jaeger is, in fact, the true emotional partner of History.
Within Episode 69, “A Solid Argument”, we see how two years ago, the island of Paradis connected with its former ally: the nation of Hizuru. This country’s envoy, Kiyomi Azumabito, met with their leaders in an effort to start negotiations on their relationship. Although Azumabito initially stated that his wish to visit the place was to meet Mikasa, who had escaped with his family to survive. The Kiyomi government will offer its support to initiate Zeke’s three-point plan to protect Paradis.
The first part of this arrangement was that Paradis will test the Rumble of the Earth to show the world a small fragment of his power, scare the citizens of the world and establish control over them. After that, would offer their cooperation to strengthen the island’s army, so that the threat of using that power was no longer necessary. Lastly, Azumabito pointed out that the founding Titan and a Royal Blood Titan must be inherited.
On this third and final point, Azumabito clarified that Zeke will pass on the Beast Titan to someone of royal blood and that, until his 13-year term ends, they should have as many children as possible. Since Historia is the only known person of royal blood who has not yet inherited a Titan in Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the burden of this duty falls solely on her. Historia recognized that if she was to protect Paradis, she must be the one to make this sacrifice. Consequently, he agreed to face the Beast Titan and start having children..
Is the farmer the father of the baby in Historia in Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)?
Shortly after this scene from Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), Historia was shown in a rocking chair, hinting that during these months after the negotiations took place, she had been pregnant.. The only person with her is a young man, dressed in simple clothes, a farmer, who asks Historia to return to the house since he has to take care of her body.
Subsequently, several Military Police officers could be seen arguing about Historia’s pregnancy. Roeg, a high-ranking official, spoke negatively of Historia calling her a “low-race girl who is queen in name only.”While this comment can be perceived as merely demonstrating this character’s opinion of Historia, it is apparently more a reflection of his chosen partner whom he disapproved of due to his poor background.
Nile Dawk explained in Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) Historia’s relationship with this man. Historia grew up in the same area as the farmer. Initially, he would intimidate her by throwing rocks at her to get her attention, but later he would try to redeem himself by offering his support in the orphanage that Historia opened. It is implied that this act of kindness was what led to their relationship and love for each other. Throughout this conversation, Dawk insists that it was Historia’s choice to initiate this relationship and that the military has run a background check on this man to ensure that he is “no one’s lackey”. This suggested that the story Dawk tells has been verified through various sources and is not simply a recent cover-up.
Or is Eren Jaeger the father of Historia Reiss’s baby?
However, fans of Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) did not like this explanation, as the farmer has never been seen or discussed outside of this episode. It seems strange that such a significant event, belonging to one of the main characters, is so “ordinary”. Therefore, there are those who have speculated another version: The first point of contention that people have with the farmer as the baby’s father is that Historia’s expression Seeing her newly found mate doesn’t seem to show any affection, she seems completely stoic and almost seemed to be in a state of depression during her stay at the ranch. This is not what one would normally expect to see from an expectant mother who is in a happy and loving relationship. As such, they have hypothesized that Historia might not be with this man and that the story Dawk told members of the Paradis military about their relationship is partly false.
It is plausible that the farmer simply acted as a decoy in an effort to protect Historia, Eren and their son in Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), if the army of Paradis or a foreign power discovered that Eren was the father, then they would probably try to capture Historia and hold her ransom to prevent Eren from starting his annihilation plan. This would explain the couple’s lack of chemistry and why the two haven’t married. While it may initially seem difficult to reason why the farmer would participate in this conspiracy, the argument for him to do so may be contained in Dawk’s story.. Instead of being with her Story because he loves her, the farmer does so simply for her own redemption.
Another factor that has led fans to believe that Eren is the father is the timeline between his mission with Marley and the beginning of Historia’s pregnancy. Eren would go to Marley shortly after Historia became pregnant, and 10 months later she would give birth during Eren’s rumble. While this could just be a coincidence, many have argued that the opposite is true.
Lastly, in the manga, it is revealed that Floch is not the only person who knows of Eren’s real plan and that Historia also had prior knowledge of it. This could mean that having a baby was part of Eren’s overall plan to protect Paradis and restore him to his former glory. While Floch’s part in Eren’s operation has been clarified, Historia’s has not. If Eren did risk telling Historia about his plan, then it makes sense that this was for a good reason, those who believe in this story suggest that this shows the closeness of their relationship, particularly since Eren couldn’t even tell Armin and Mikasa about his goal of starting Earth Rumble..
While this theory is certainly interesting and has many compelling ideas, it is largely based on a number of assumptions. **It is understandable that his fans, considering Hajime Isayama’s constant use of big reveals, believe that Historia’s son is part of a larger purpose within the plot of Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan). However, it could be the case that Historia’s relationships and the overall arc have ended in a simpler way than many would have expected. Although the timing of Historia’s pregnancy, in relation to Eren leaving Paradis, is strange, it would also be strange if Eren conceived a child with Historia as part of his plan. After all, Eren was furious that Hizuru would use her as a vessel for political purposes.
Ultimately, the simplest solution to this problem is probably the answer. **History’s relationship, like most in the real world, is both unremarkable and complicated**. Whether Historia is in love with the farmer or just with him out of self-preservation (so she can buy more time and not have to inherit the Beast Titan) is probably the question that should be asked, rather than whether or not Eren is the father.
