A fan of Game of Thrones, Norwegian Martina Langseth Knutsen made this mini Iron Throne phone charger from MDF board and tiny spray-painted plastic swords, after seeing similar Iron Throne phone holder projects online.
Knutsen, who shares her DIY guides on the YouTube channel “Natural Nerd,” said she was “really happy” with the finished result, which took several days to complete, and required 600 tiny plastic swords.
In 2015, Uber teamed up with HBO to bring Game of Thrones‘s iconic seat straight to New Yorkers so that they could finally get to sit upon it without all of the bloodshed (or politics)—as long they were in Manhattan at the time. (Source)
You’re supposed to be treated like royalty on your birthday, but one dad took that sentiment to a whole new regal place. Reddit user wierddad treated his daughter Emma to a Game of Thrones birthday party that rivals just about any episode of the show.
The dedicated dad posted a photo of his daughter with the caption, “My child’s first birthday party. Might have gone overboard.” In the HBO show, birthdays are known as “name days,” hence the birthday sign above his daughter. (Source)
This glorious bathroom arrangement was created by a prolific (and, more likely, very bored) IKEA employee.
In a comment, Reddit user rpmdebslack, who posted the photo, explained the double entendre at play in IKEA’s wording, “Monter sur le trône” literally means “sitting on the throne.” It also means going to the toilet (figuratively). (Source)
While attending MegaCon 2014 in Orlando, Mica Bethea took his cosplay to the next level by outfitting his wheelchair as the Iron Throne. By hiding his lower legs beneath a panel and attaching a pair of boots to his knees, he artificially shortened his legs. A leather jacket and hand-of-the-king pin complete the Tyrion Lannister look. “Star Trek: The Next Generation” actor Wil Wheaton was so taken with the getup that he tweeted a photo of it.
Top notch cosplay, sir. We raise our goblets!
This Throne of Nerds was made by artist Mike DeWolfe who warped together more than 20 different keyboards to create a throne every one of us who stare at a computer for a living should be fighting for.
The keyboard throne is actually for sale—you can grab it from DeWolfe for $500. A small cost to pay considering the war you would have to wage to take it over.

In 2014, The Telegraph teamed up with NOW TV to give away a replica “throne of swords” with its own health-and-safety-approved cushioned seat and ever-so-slightly-spiky backboard. OK, so it’s more of a seat than a throne, which attaches to an office chair or armchair, and it hasn’t been forged out of real iron swords by the breath of a dragon named Balerion the Black Dread, but none of your friends will have one!
