The Amazing Reason Queen Elizabeth Refused To Sit On The Iron Throne

For those who don't know, the Iron Throne is an asymmetric monstrosity of spikes and jagged edges and twisted metal that appeared on the series finale of "Game of Thrones." When Queen Elizabeth visited the set of the HBO series and was invited to sit on the Iron Throne, she refused. It’s not that she’s not fond of the show; she just wasn’t allowed. It turns out that tradition prohibits the reigning British monarch from sitting on any foreign throne. While the Queen's position is more of a ceremonial one these days, in some places a king or queen may actually consider sitting on the throne an act of aggression. In the end, the 94-year-old monarch of the United Kingdom doesn't need a special chair to make her feel important, now does she?
