‘Game of Thrones’ fan finds hidden Iron Throne in Queens park

“Game of Thrones” entered the kingdom of Queens on Thursday.

A woman on Thursday found the sixth replica of the show’s “Iron Throne,” which was hidden in Queens by producers to promote the final season of the fantasy series.

HBO has been planting the replica thrones in spots around the globe — from the UK to Brazil — and publishing hour-long live streams that show only the large thrones as a clue for fans to track down their location.

Melanie Joaquín was at her apartment in Queens when they published a video of a throne replica Thursday morning, showing it in an enclosed castle-like setting.

She immediately recognized it: the battery at Fort Totten Park in Queens. Joaquín started heading that direction.

“The video was posted like ten minutes ago … I left my apartment building, got on a bus, ran over here,” she told HBO producers while sitting on the throne after tracking it down.

Joaquín had to sneak into the battery — a stone structure at the former military fort — because the fence was locked when she got to the park.

“I snuck in here through a hole,” she told the HBO staff.

“I knew this was the battery and I knew where this place was, but I know you have to get through a fence, but the fence was locked,” she said.
