If you’re a fan of “Game of Thrones” and have fantasized about your very own quest for the iron throne, then you’re going to be happy to hear that HBO has hidden several replica Iron Thrones in different locations around the globe.
What this means is that you’ll have your chance to sit on the famous chair before finding out who’s going to occupy it once the war is over.
There are six thrones in total, all are hidden in six different countries around the globe. At least that is what we’ve been told. Not all of them have been discovered yet.
What we do know is there is definitely one hidden in the UK in Puzzlewood Forest, Gloucestershire. There’s one hidden in Sweden, in a place known as Björkliden. That one has been dubbed the Throne in the North. And there’s also one in Castello de Atienza, a place that is north of the Spanish capitol, Madrid.
There is also a fourth that has been supposedly spotted but the location is yet to be confirmed. Although fans are speculating that the location may be Beberibe, Brazil. This means that there are still two undiscovered Iron Thrones out there in the world.
The scavenger hunt to find the various thrones started on the “Game of Thrones” website under the #ForTheThrone.
On there, it is said, “For seven seasons you’ve watched characters lie, bleed, and sacrifice for the Iron Throne, as the final season approaches only one question remains: How far will you go?”
If you visit that website you can see a 360 degree video of each of the thrones to see if it helps you figure out where the last two are hidden.
And each of the thrones has a name as well. The possible Brazil throne is called the Throne of Valyria, a reference to the ancient kingdom ruled the by Targaryen dragon lords. The one in Sweden is the Throne of the North, in reference to either the Stark family or the Night King, depending on how far north the reference is meant to be. The Spanish throne for some unknown reason is the Throne of Joy, while the one in the forest in Gloucestershire is simply the Throne of the Forest. The still unidentified fifth throne is the Throne of Ice. The sixth one remains to be unveiled later this week.
Many are speculating if one of them may possibly end up somewhere in the United States, but that remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, the premiere date of April 14th for the final season is approaching.
As for the scavenger hunt, sounds fun. What do you think?
