Been reading up on the lore behind these two ever since the JoJ where Leblanc is impersonating Jarvan in Swains armor. Since then I learned that Jarvan did not have a League Judgement performed by a summoner(http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...d.php?t=560445.) This got me to thinking, did Swain attack Jarvan to solidify his spies position in Demacia and in the League? With Jarvan's mysterious past, and drastic changes it seems highly likely that the Jarvan that we know and is active now is Leblanc.

Any input would be welcomed.

Added some of the highlights of the thread to the opening post.

Everything that could be done to destabilize these two states has been done ever since the failed assassination of Jarvan IV. I think this is being done by Leblanc, Swain, and the Black Rose in an attempt to rule all of Kalamanda. Also, why would Swain kill Jarvan in public when he has the opportunity to put a spy in line to be the next ruler of Demacia?

This means that the real Jarvan IV is either dead or in a Noxian prison.

Check out the last panel here:http://riot-web-static.s3.amazonaws....aser-final.jpg

Beatrice and what appears to be Black Roses sprouting from his sword, I believe he must be an assassin for the Black Rose(Beatrice on the hilt of the sword possibly meaning Swain is guiding his actions, and Black Roses sprouting where his sword is could mean that his sword is sowing the seeds of the Black Roses plans)

I made a post about this on reddit, anyone is welcome to join in on the discussion.

Definitely something is afoot here! I feel all of this is a build up to an event that is going to kick off season 2.

I'm glad you posted in here Star Wolf. I was gonna link to your post to make sure it got out.

There has been a lot of interesting discussion on it, but it seems impluasible to think that Jarvan has been missing for a long period of time. In game, Leblanc's clone online lasts for a short period of time. It's difficult to link that her clones can last for so long so as to completely impersonate a person such as in RANKED games, where you can't have 2 of the same champion.

But still. It is very possible to think that Leblanc has incapped Jarvan for a short period of time in order to impersonate him and attack Swain.

I hope that after Jarvan IV's defeat and near execution he, with the help of LeBlanc, traveled down a dark path in his mind and soul searched until he realized that the only way he could be strong enough to lead his people is to learn from a people that value strength above all else, Noxus. The Black Rose has a history of manipulating monarchies, I see no reason why this can't extend to Demacia.

It would also make for a much deeper twist in character development than the imprisoned good guy route.

I hate to be the thousanth person to say that Jarvan IV is strikingly similarities to Warcraft's Arthas, but you can't deny that they are many.

Issue 25 - the picture at the top, when zoomed in, show's LeBlanc as the reflection of Jarvan IV in Swain's armour.

Interesting. Jarvan does have a ridiculously mysterious past. No one knows what happened when he went to the south of the barrier.

And after his captured, people did described hims as "different".
