Two more thrones for the Quest- and one has already been found!

The Quest rolls on #ForTheThrone this week, as HBO unveiled two more iron thrones somewhere out there in the world for fans to track down. The first two were quickly located over the past few days, in England and Sweden. There’s a total of six spots on the website, with only ten days left in the quest, going by the countdown clock, hinting that this game will wind down just in time for the Game of Thrones red carpet premiere in New York City.

Mostly recently released are the Throne of Joy, shown above, and the Throne of Valyria, shown here:

On Twitter, GoT teases, “A true Maester must see the wisdom in what’s not written. How far will you go #ForTheThrone?”

The Throne of Joy was found by fans who recognized a distinct landmark and of course the helpful name of the throne. The original image shows Castle of Atienza in Spain, but it very much resembles Castle of Zafra, the actual Spanish location where the Tower of Joy scenes were filmed in Guadalajara, Spain.

HBOSpain shared an image of the enterprising fan who reached the landmark first, with the rousing quote, “Where a leader was born long ago, today a new queen rises.”

Where do you think the Throne of Valyria is? Where do think they’ll place the final two thrones, before the red carpet premiere?

      I don’t know where the last thrones will be but I know for sure it won’t be anywhere close to where I live. 😉

    2. I would just like to point out that the castle in the image is not actually the Castle of Zafra, but the Castle of Atienza. They do look similar, but are not the same. The distance between the two is about 137km. I would have gone to look for sure, if I had lived in Spain.

      So far it seems all throne locations are not locations where they shot GoT. Which leads me to wonder where the Throne of Valyria is…

    3. The Valyrian throne looks like it could be in one of the hundreds of slot canyons in southern Utah or northern Arizona, near Lake Powell.

    4. Could it perhaps be Morocco, maybe in the Atlas Mountains? I believe that country was used during filming for the Qarth, Astapor and Yunkai scenes.

    5. The Valyria throne has to be in Italy. Ancient Rome is the most direct historical basis for the Valyrian Freehold

      I live in Utah and love the idea that it might be here. I have lived here my whole life and have hiked all the popular slots and many of the locals only ones. Have done the canyon 127 hours was based on 5 times.

      It does look like the entrance to a couple. Willis Canyon would be my guess if it was here. It won’t look like photos on the Internet because the photos are mostly taken further in, but trust me it looks close. The Sundance Film Festival wrapped up here the first of February, so I could see them here.

      My only issue thinking it would be here is the time of year. Slot Canyons are always dangerous. If you have never done one, do, but please watch the weather. This time of year isn’t as bad as it gets, but it’s still risky. Flash Floods are very common in slot canyons. It can rain miles away and you can find yourself in a lot of danger.

      For this reason I don’t think they would put it near one. The entrances are basically safe, but who comes for the entrance. I don’t think they would risk it, but Willis Canyon would be a great spot and special nod to the show. Hell its only a 4 hour drive, I guess I need to know. I can just imagine Stimpy Stark, King of the North, and new era to the Iron Throne Christmas cards being sent.

      I was wondering how to kill the weekend, thank you Katsa.

      I’m in agreement, SW would be unusual location; if HBO does place one here in America, it’ll be somewhere between NYC and Montreal.
      The unsullied helmet should be a clue, what filming location stood in for Astapor
      It’s probably near there.

    8. praedictus,

      I haven’t been to mainland Malta much, but we go to Gozo a couple of times per year (we actually happened to be there at the time they were filming at the former Azure window – Dany’s Wedding scene – and were annoyed at the time because we couldn’t go watch the sunset like we usually did 😂 if only we’d known!) and the rocks look very different to Gozo. I wouldn’t think it’s there.

    9. The hint “The Targaryens use a sigil of red and black, but “the yellow and green one” represents this land” was placed on twitter.

      Now someone has suggested that the surroundings of Praia de Morro Branco and Praia das Fontes in Brasil might be an option for the Throne of Valyria. Having looked it up on google, they might be right. Brasil has a yellow and green flag to boot. And there is even a cave nearby named Gruta Mãe, or Mother Cave.

      If someone happens to be living near there, you might want to check it out.

      The sigil of yellow and green represents the lands of House Tyrell, otherwise know as the reach. Therefore find a rocky gulley where HBO filmed scenes set there. Castle Almodovar and where Fields of Fire 2.0 took place. So hop in your cars and drive around.
      I think I found it scrolling around on Google Earth in those locales, not telling

    11. Tyjon,

      I know that. But neither of the previous three thrones were actually at one if the filming locations. Not even the Throne of Joy, like many seem to think. That throne is at Castillo de Atienzas, and NOT actually at Castillo de Zafra. They look alike, but are not the same castle.

      The second throne was near Abisko, Sweden, where to my knowledge they also did not shoot any GoT scenes. And the hint that lead to that one was ‘a crown for each stag’ or something similar, which lead to Sweden which has three crowns on it’s sigil. So it seems to me the hints point to the actual location of the throne, at least twice so far. I thought the thrones were at filming locations at first, as well. But no.

      It has just been announced that the throne was found btw, at Praia de Morro Branco, Brasil 🙂

    12. Only 2 left with 9 days left on the timer. This should be finished before it expires. I wonder if they’ll release anything at the end.

    13. Esvidae,

      What the…talk about an out of the way locale, only recognizable by someone whose been there, like the Sweden one. What does an unsullied helmet have to do with the location, isn’t it suppose to be a clue. The one in Puzzlewood was a good location, near heavily populated areas. The Joy was at least between Madrid and Lisbon. This one would be in a location frequented by a small clientele of people.

    14. In all these promotions and interviews – where is Peter Dinklage?

      Everyone has been seen or interviewed – Peter???? Maybe this week?

      Could it be the Painted Desert in South Australia?

      The 4th one was found in Brazil. Apparently the 5th one is in Canada, so there’s one left to unveil.

    17. Brazil, eh? I was definitely guessing Morocco, especially after they had the Unsullied helmet there. Like with Sweden, they threw in a twist!

      Just seen the Unsullied helmet on a stick using the 360 degree pan. The Astapor scenes were filmed in Morocco so would guess that’s where the Valyrian thone is located. Where in Morocco I’ve no idea though.
