Muscat: HBO, the creators of the smash medieval fantasy series Game of Thrones, has placed six replicas of the Iron Throne across the world for fans to find.

Titled ‘For the Throne’, HBO has placed these thrones in real-world locations that mirror those found in Westeros.

The Throne of the North is located in a frozen tundra-like landscape, and is meant to mirror Winterfell, the northern realm of the Seven Kingdoms, and the likely setting for the first episode of the final season, while the Throne of Ice is located in a frozen forest, which stands in for the regions north of the Wall, an area that has long been home to the White Walkers and the Wildlings.

The Throne of the Crypt is meant to mirror both the crypts underneath Winterfell, and the sky cells of the Eyrie of House Arryn, given the shafts of light that illuminate the passage in which it stands.



On the other hand, the Throne of the Forest represents the Reach and the Riverlands, both of which are heavily forested regions, and the Throne of Joy – named after the Tower of Joy, where Lyanna Stark gave birth to Jon Snow – is meant to honour Dorne, the southernmost kingdom of the seven, owing to its arid location. It could be located near the Castle of Zafra, the 12th century fort in Guadalajara, Spain, given that a very similar structure appears in the background

The sixth Iron Throne is located in a rocky, desert environment, and that pays tribute to Daenerys Targaryen’s rise from a Khaleesi of the Dothraki hordes to the ruler of Meereen.



Those who wish to find the thrones can use the 360 degree cameras they come with, enabling them to look at the surroundings, allowing them to recognise the throne’s environment, and possibly enabling them to find the thrones in an easier manner.

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones releases on 21 April, 2019. The series finale is expected to air on May 19.
