Having seen people vie and die to sit on the Iron Throne in Game of Thrones, we think the king ought to know better. The Iron Throne is one uncomfortable, if not downright dangerous place to sit on. Aegon Targaryen wanted it that way, and well, the others just followed suit. It might be possible, that had their asses been comfortably placed on the throne, the kings would be more compassionate, and Westeros a better place.
Someone did think of a comfortable iron throne, and Nerd by Night actually built one bean bag chair in the likeness of the iron throne. So there would not be a clamor to sit on the iron throne, Nerd by Night made a DIY guide available for those interested in their own bean bag throne.
