QUEEN ELIZABETH II VISITS THE SET OF "GAME OF THRONES" IN BELFAST, IRELAND

Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II, 88, visited the set of "Game of Thrones" in Belfast, Ireland on Tuesday, June 24.   She met cast members, among them Kit Harington who plays Jon Snow, Lena Headey who  plays Queen Cersei Lannister and Sophie Turner who plays Sansa Stark.

Home to the wicked queen Cersei Lannister, King's Landing was the scene of several Machiavellian plots and scores of unpleasant murders, among them that of the 'Mad King' Aerys II Targaryen who was stabbed in the back by Cersei's brother, Jaime.

And while Queen Elizabeth II was offered a chance to sit on the infamous Iron Throne (comprised of many swords) as Lena Headey, Sophie Turner and Kit Harrington looked on, she reportedly declined.
The last king to sit on it was poisoned at his own wedding, so it was perhaps no surprise that the Queen preferred not to take the Iron Throne when she visited the Game of Thrones set.
