To mark the return of HBO’s hit series I thought I might share a little something cool and pointless your way. Remember that little fantasy film series they made in the early 2000s? What was it called again… Oh! The Lord of the Rings!? Yeah! Well, you might find it of intrigue to note that Gandalf’s very own blade ‘Glamdring’ sits proud and tall upon Game of Thrones’ Iron Throne. A reddit user named NoMoreHodoring found it not too long ago. Check it out:
Immediately after, another reddit user found that the sword of Robin of Locksley sat beside it. The sword, taken from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, isn’t as clearly identifiable, but there is certain resemblance.
So, what do you think? Coincidence or Easter Egg? Did the set creators know this would get fans feathers ruffled, or were they just using props that they already had at the ready?
