Friends, Citizens of Westeros and fellow fans, a Raven has arrived from auctioneers Profiles in History bearing good news!
It turns out that the bloodshed, fire and strife were not exactly needed because you can have the 'Iron Throne' in all its glory without having to battle any of the seven kingdoms. 'Profiles in History' announced that the 'Game of Thrones' Iron Throne will be going up for auction on June 27th in Los Angeles. This is a studio commissioned life-size replica "Iron Throne" that was made specifically for Game of Thrones: The Epic Fan Experience in 2014. Some cast members and the author, George R.R. Martin, were present at the event and Martin personally presented this throne to the winner of a contest.
Well, since it is going on auction, you will probably have to fight off some power hungry bidders.
Also up for auction is a Game of Thrones painting by legendary artist and illustrator, Sanjulian. The painting was commissioned for the 2013 SXSW Game of Thrones exhibition. The painting depicts the main characters and images from the universe of George R. R. Martin’s blockbuster fantasy drama series. The SXSW Game of Thrones experience has also extended its purpose to try and help a cause. This year HBO is running a global blood donation campaign supporting The American Red Cross by asking the fans, "Will you bleed for the throne?"
