Stand down Jon Snow, Daenerys and Sansa. As the hit series Game of Thrones draws to a close, Russian authorities say they have seized the Iron Throne.

Traders set up a replica of the throne featured in the HBO drama in a main square of Saint Petersburg for passers-by to take pictures with, city hall said Tuesday.

But during a raid, officials seized the seat, which they said was installed in the former imperial capital illegally.

They did not provide details of the throne’s location or whether it would be returned.
