Game Of Thrones fans hunt for elusive FINAL hidden Iron Throne as five of six mystical chairs are found in worldwide treasure hunt

GAME Of Thrones fans are being told to scour local beauty spots in the hunt for a final Iron Throne in a worldwide treasure hunt ahead of the eighth and final series.

Five of six Thrones have already been found – in far-flung places ranging from Sweden and Spain to Brazil and Canada.

Two lucky Brits also tracked down one of the iconic chairs in rural Gloucestershire.

Alex Bowring and Tom Maullin-Sapey, from Oxford, were the first to find a throne in the ancient Puzzlewood woodland in the Forest of Dean.

They used clues posted online to trace the whereabouts of the Iron Throne to the picturesque forest – believed to have inspired J.R.R Tolken’s Lord Of The Rings series of books.

Sharing pics of the two GoT superfans, who won a golden crown for their efforts, the show’s UK broadcaster Sky Atlantic wrote: “The children of the forest’s true kings have arrived. #ForTheThrone #ThroneoftheForest.”

Other fans of the HBO series tracked down thrones in the snowy backdrops of Canada and Sweden.

Another was traced to a beach in Spain – and a fifth to a rocky shoreline in Brazil.

Treasure hunters had only a 360-degree panorama pic and clues posted on the For The Throne website to work from.

Actors from the Emmy award-winning series, which teamed up with the American Red Cross for the promotion, were on hand to publicise the hunt.

In a Facebook post, they said: “The quest for the throne is on.”

A quote from the show’s character Oberyn Martell appears at the top, which reads: “It is a big and beautiful world.

“Most of us live and die in the same corner where we were born and never get to see any of it.

“I don’t want to be most of us.”

The final series of Game Of Thrones airs on April 14.
