If you’re a Game of Thrones fan and aspire to become the next King (or Queen) of the Andals, make sure you pay a visit to Valletta this morning for the chance to sit upon a replica of the famous Iron Throne.

The throne appeared in front of Parliament House some time during the early hours of the morning. It is not known if it is part of the publicity being carried out currently by HBO to market the very last season (its eighth, which debuts in Malta on the 15th April) of the popular TV series.

A number of fans queued – even in the rain – to take a selfie or have their photo taken by a friend.

Some episodes of the first season in 2011 were filmed in various locations in Malta and Gozo.
