The Iron Throne from House of the Dragon
Can we please talk about the first episode of House of the Dragon? Or is it too early for spoilers?
This isn’t a spoiler, but the Iron Throne is sporting a new look in the Game of Thrones prequel. If anything, it’s more menacing than the one we’re used to seeing: it’s larger, pointier, messier and has more swords than it ends up with 200 years later. And the new series once again asks the question: Who will sit on it and reign?
A replica of this darker Iron Throne – nearly three metres tall, weighing 226 kilograms and covered with 1000 swords – is popping up in Sydney. It already made an appearance in front of Sydney Town Hall, and next week it will be outside the University of Sydney’s Great Hall for two days, so you can snap a photo.
House of the Dragon airs on Binge in Australia and the US simultaneously – every Monday at 11am.
