Queen Elizabeth II eyes a new throne

Image
Every article I've read says that she declined to sit on the throne (now there's a picture worth seeing), but the way she's eying it in the above pic, she must have given it serious thought. By the way, context on the picture is that the Queen and her husband were in Belfast, Ireland and visited the set of GoT because she's the Queen and she does what she wants.

I did notice something, in a picture Time used in their article.

Prince Philip, the Queen's husband, looks like an older Tywin Lannister. Combine that with all of the gold lions on the backs of their thrones and the walls behind me leads to only one conclusion and folks, you might want to hold on your undies, because this will most certainly blow them away: The Royal Family are Lannisters!

:P

You can have your Iron Throne, I'd rather have a book one

Aerys the Mad should have sat on one of these instead, then he wouldn't have cut himself so much. He still would have been an insane asshole though. To quote the immortal Bronn, "there's no cure for being a cunt."


Of course, that's probably not enough space for us fantasy readers - most of us would use up half the slots just for one series. #fantasygeekproblems am I right? I don't think Sanderson's Way of Kings would fit anywhere on there, either, not without tipping the thing over.

Cancer is an asshole. I have one of his books, Mainspring, that I haven't gotten around to reading yet. Might be a good time to start.
