I saw this over at Warming Glow and knew I had to share it with everyone. This is the Iron Throne that George R.R. Martin envisioned. If you have read the books, this is pretty much how it is described.
This would probably not work in a television show, but you really get the idea that Aegon used the swords of the conquered to build the throne. Also, the king looms above the throne room. That is why Joffrey enjoyed sitting there, and why Robert hated it, since the damn seat was so uncomfortable (that was something that Aegon also intended). Pretty damn awesome.
