Who will sit the Iron Throne? You'll have the chance to ask Daenerys Targaryen herself before the finale in Houston.



A flock of fans can be found deep inside Fort Totten Park in Bayside, Queens, where they are lined up to sit down -- not just in any chair -- but a replica throne from HBO's smash hit show.

New York City was one of six undisclosed locations around the world where a throne was hidden, sending fans scrambling after online clues to find the iconic chair. It was the only throne replica hidden in the United States.

All of it is part of a massive marketing strategy to hype up the show's eighth and final season, which begins next month.

Melanie Joaquin is a huge fan of the show, and she found the throne just minutes after HBO's tweet Thursday.

New York was the final location revealed, following Sweden, Brazil, Canada, the UK and Spain.

It was a global scavenger hunt designed for diehard fans who couldn't resist the chance to rule and snap a photo for posterity.

The New York chair will stay in place until Monday evening.
