“Game of Thrones” fans are searching around the world for two remaining thrones as part of a scavenger hunt to mark the show’s upcoming and final season.
HBO hid six iron thrones around the globe, and so far four have been located in Björkliden, Sweden; Puzzlewood, England; Atienza, Spain; and Beberibe, Brazil.
But the Throne of Ice has yet to be found as well as the final sixth throne whose details are unknown.
The first one, called “the Throne of the Forest” was unveiled in photos and video posted online, showing it in a mossy forest. With just that information, fans were then tasked with tracking it down. Though it may seem like trying to find a needle in a haystack, two fans already managed to track it down in Puzzlewood in the Forest of Dean in the UK – a forest that’s already famous with Harry Potter fans after Deathly Hallows was filmed there.
After the first was found, HBO has released photos and video of the new thrones, this time showing one in a very icy location and called “the Throne of the North”. It looks like fans have already located the latest throne in Sweden.
First of all, have you met Game of Thrones fans? We’re kind of a lot. Secondly, the Iron Throne is literally made of swords forged together by the flames of a fire-breathing dragon, so this isn’t your mama’s couch we’re talking about, you know, the one covered in plastic wrap that you’re only allowed to sit on when you have company?
This Iron Throne has been the source of many conflicts throughout the course of the series. Since being forged at the command of Aegon the Conqueror (Daenaerys’ great grandfather) years ago, anyone who’s anyone in Westeros has had their eyes on this seat, whoever sits on the Iron Throne controls all of the Seven Kingdoms.
Because of this, Westeros faces the constant threat of a coup, whether plotted by the problematic but fine as h— Dothraki Khal Drogo in the east or right within the walls of King’s Landing by an overzealous religious cult.
HBO announced in January that the show’s final season will kick off April 14.
The seventh-season finale set a rating record in 2017, attracting 16.5 million viewers on HBO, according to Nielsen data.
Last year CNN reported that HBO had ordered a pilot for a potential “Game of Thrones” spin-off.
The prequel will take place thousands of years before the events of “Game of Thrones” and will chronicle “the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.”
