Which Throne Is For You?
Only the Nerdy are worthy enough to sit on the Throne of Nerds. It’s made completely out of keyboards and while it might not be the most comfortable seat in the world, it’s probably better than the Iron Throne if you ask me. The Nerd throne was put together by hobbyist Mike DeWolfe.
The Iron Throne was constructed by Aegon I Targaryen, the first king of the Seven Kingdoms. Aegon the Conqueror had the Throne made from the swords surrendered by his enemies. It is supposed to have taken a thousand blades to make, heated in the breath of Balerion the Black Dread. The hammering had taken fifty-nine days.
The Iron Throne is a monstrosity of spikes and jagged edges and twisted metal. It is uncomfortable, and the back is fanged with steel which makes leaning back impossible. Aegon I had it made this way deliberately, saying that a king should never sit easy. King Aerys II Targaryen, the “Mad King,” was always cutting himself upon it and it is said that the throne itself has caused the deaths of several people.
