The Lego Iron Throne Room is probably one of the most iconic elements of the popular Game of Thrones series. The Throne is the seat of the Lord of the Seven Kingdoms. It is often used as a metonymic device to refer to the king’s authority. Or to the polity born after Aegon’s Conquest.
The king often holds audiences and dispenses justice from atop it in the Red Keep‘s throne room. The chair is cold and hard, with many jagged edges. Only the Hand of the King may sit on the throne in the king’s absence. I I thought that it was fitting to build a tribute to the masterpiece of the original.
The Lego Iron Throne Room is an asymmetric monstrosity of spikes and jagged edges and twisted metal. The throne itself was constructed by Aegon I Targaryen. According to the songs, it took a thousand blades to make. George R. R. Martin has described the Iron Throne as “massive”, “ugly”, and “assymetric”. The throne is a symbol of conquest.
This build was my first built. It’s certainly the largest creation that I have worked on to date. I had a lot of fun experimenting with various techniques to recreate the atmosphere. I think that it turned out well.
It also features the Lego Kingsguard. Known poetically as the White Swords, are the royal bodyguards of the Lego Iron Throne. Along with the columns and pillars shown in this photo, the Throne Room becomes a diorama.
