A replica of the Iron Throne from the upcoming Game Of Thrones prequel series House Of The Dragon has been erected outside the Tower of London ahead of the show’s launch.

The seat of the Lord of the Seven Kingdoms will be displayed on the monument on Monday and Tuesday ahead of the premiere next week in Leicester Square.

He will then tour the country throughout August, including Cardiff and Edinburgh.

Fans of the fantasy tale will be able to sit on the 10-foot-tall, 12-foot-wide throne, flanked by the banner of the fictional House Targaryen, and pose for photos.

They will also be able to learn more about the new series through a QR code next to the seat.

Beefeaters, cosplay superfan and Made In Chelsea star Sam Thompson was among the first to be photographed with the throne, which in the original books was forged from 1,000 swords fused together by the fiery breath of a dragon.

Based on George RR Martin’s Fire And Blood and set two centuries before the events of Game Of Thrones, House Of The Dragon chronicles the beginning of the end of House Targaryen and the events leading up to the Targaryen Civil War, known as the name of Dance of the Dragons.

The drama stars Matt Smith, star of The Crown, as Prince Daemon Targaryen, younger brother of King Viserys and heir to the throne, while Olivia Cooke plays Alicent Hightower, the daughter of Otto Hightower, the hand of the King.

Jamie East, co-host of Sky Atlantic’s Thronecast and House Of The Dragon Premiere Special, said: “Set 200 years before the events of Game Of Thrones, House Of The Dragon will transport fans to Westeros at the height of the reign of of Targaryen.

“We will discover an Iron Throne of far greater scale and decadence, made from the warped and melted swords of the defeated enemies of the Targaryens, a symbol of the enormous power and influence of the Targaryens at that time. .”

House Of The Dragon will air on Sky and the Now streaming service from August 22.
